I spent only one night here and found it to be a super-central and charming guesthouse. If it wasn’t for how loud the noise travels I sure would have liked to stay longer. The place it’s very easy to find and it’s just a 10 minutes walk from the station. I arrived before my room was ready so I left... More

I stayed two nights at Guest Inn Chita. Firstly the guesthouse itself: clean, comfortable, cozy, and in a good location. What made my stay here exceptional was Kahori, who was approachable, friendly, and helpful. I had developed a large and painful infected cyst on the back of my neck - not an ideal situation when travelling in a foreign country,... More

I have nothing bad to say about this place. We came as a group of 6 and we booked separate rooms (because it said so on the booking website) but the owner gave us a very large room for our group to stay together. Very nice. The shower rooms are available in private bathrooms and Japanese communal bathtub. The location... More

The authentic Japanese style room was fantastic! Slept great. Really nice hostess who speaks English very well!! It turned out that the inn is actual her own house and she treated us with great hospitality. The location is also perfect, about 6 minute walk from the train station. They also keep your luggage free of charge before and after check-out.... More

We stayed at Guest Inn Chita during our honeymoon visiting Japan. Having only stayed in hotels for the last decade or so of holidaying I was a little apprehensive about our stay here but it was excellent. The futon beds were comfy and the room was more spacious than I expected. The room felt nice and cool as well. The... More

It is a sweet guest house with traditional rooms. The shower and toilets are shared, but also a nice small kitchen with tea and coffee available in every hour. The family that runs the place was very friendly. I was happy about the price and the Japanese style room.

I love this place, the hospitality was dynamite and it was set in traditional Japanese style. The lady was extremely courteous at all times and making sure my stay was comfortable. I highly recommend this place for anyone staying in the Kyoto area. The location is also a great factor. AAA+++ accommodations.

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
