An excellent place to stay in Kyoto. Hotel room is very clean, easy check-in, and hotel staff very helpful. 1 minute walk away from subway stations and buses. And 15 to 20 mins walk away from Kyoto station. Many restaurants and shops nearby. Walking distance to many tourist attractions. A must check-out hotel...

This was a lovely hotel very near to Kyoto station (1 stop by subway) and therefore quite central to anywhere we wanted to go. There were also plenty of places to eat and drink in the immediate vicinity, with Higashiyama and Pontocho Alley only a 20 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel and rooms were clean and quiet and...

Was there for 3 nights during my recent visit to Japan. The hotel is a nicely run small size hotel, located just steps away from Gojo station. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The bags I shipped from the Tokyo hotel were waiting for us in the lobby when we arrived, and even though we arrived arrived early, they...

100m from Gojo subway station or 15 min walk from Kyoto station, this hotel is a great option for the family. We had a room with 4 queen size beds on the top floor with a view of Kyoto Tower. Great base for exploring Kyoto and side trips to Osaka, Nara, etc. friendly and helpful staff. Clean, well maintained rooms.

I would give this hotel 3.5 stars if trip advisor made it possible. I booked this hotel at the last minute through Hotwire and had initially been hoping for a more upscale/recognizable chain, but this was better than expected. It was a huge relief that when I arrived at the Gojo subway stop in the pouring rain, the hotel was...

Strict 3pm check-in. Room was pretty comfortable - smallish,but nice-sized bed and all the usual amenities. Very close to a subway station and within walking distance of Kyoto station. Nice area overall - a bit of a walk to bar/restaurant areas, but lots of them around. I'd definitely stay here again.

Good location - 15 minute walk from shops/markets and 20 min walk from Kyoto station. They always clean the rooms and provide free water and toiletries. Service is friendly although not used it much. No complaints, would stay here again :)

We arrived early but they stored our luggage and sent it to the rooms, so it was ready for us when we checked in. The rooms here were the biggest we stayed at in our trip to Japan. For our family of five we had one room with a double bed and one with three twin beds. The triple was...

We've just spent over a week at Hotel San Crane, which in our view had everything going for it: comfort, a good location, and very friendly service at a reasonable price. Comfort: We had a room with twin beds which did not seem at all small (see photos)--there was a little table with chairs, a mini-fridge, a low dresser with...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
