We only spent one night here, but the hotel was very good for the purpose it served. Beds were large & comfortable; staff were very friendly, although with limited English; and the location is close to a train station or bus stops for you to...More
From Nagoya station, it is a subway and railway trip to the hotel. Be aware that neither of these trips are covered by the JR pass.
Although a hike from the city centre, the hotel is well-placed to explore beautiful Kyoto, with buses and trains...More
Do not be misled by this hotel's location. Although it is not in the very centre of Kyoto it is very well located on a key transport interchange giving easy access to the train and bus network.

Location next to Hankyu Sain station and 3 min walk from Randen, but quite few sleazy bars karaoke around it (they leave tourists alone).
Room: larger than most Japanese rooms, comfy bed, good WiFi. Must leave room key with staff when leaving hotel.
We stayed at the Rhino hotel for a few days. For the price, this hotel is really good. It's a little hard to locate (not well marked) and the reception desk is on the second floor of the building. The room was large for Japan,...More
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
