While visiting family we stayed at this very nice hotel in Kyoto. It is rather elegant in appearance more suitable for business guests and has several restaurants. We were there with our two grandsons and our son in law and we didn't see many families at this hotel. Nevertheless the hotel employees accommodated all of our needs, and we stayed...

The hotel local is good which is Gojo-sagaru. The hotel has free shuttle buses connecting the Kyoto Station Hachijo daily. However, there is no shuttle buses after 20:35; I expect the hotel can extend the shuttle bus running hours. If you catch airport limousine bus from Kansai International Airport (Osaka), it is good that some buses stop just outside of...

Everything one needs is here, but rooms are very small. Also, we asked to be upgraded and ended up in an identical room which had much better amenities and bedding. We found the location wasn't good for us, but they have a shuttle service to other parts of town. Included breakfast was very good.

Very clean rooms and great value. Long walk to major shops markets and teain station. We stayed at a twin share and the room was a average size. Bathroom was small with low ceilings but very clean. We did not stay in the room much as we were out all day only to sleep and it was good for us

We stayed here for two nights as part of our honeymoon trip in Japan. Our first room smelled heavily of smoke, but the hotel happily changed out the room to a non-smoking one. Overall, the room was okay -- the bathroom sink had accumulated mold/mildew, the toilet was very worn and scratched, and the room was fairly dark even when...

Very friendly staff. Very convenient transportation from Kyoto Station. Well located... Having said so, I am not coming back ever to this hotel. I had a flashback of my old days as a backpacker arriving at youth hostels -back in the early 90s-. Not a hotel to arrive with my family at my age. The season did not help much,...

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.

From the impressive main entrance, and the courtyard water feature recreating the simple purity of the city's Horikawa River, the atmosphere of quiet composure communicates a sense of calm and relaxation to every guest. ... more   less
