This is a quiet place to stay in Kyoto. It is situated not far from a subway station and there are buses you can catch even closer, with bus passes available at the hotel. The room is clean and quite large. Cons: The bed was too small in my opinion, and a bigger bed would improve the hotel a great...

It's a little further away from the action than anticipated, a good 10-15 min walk to Nishiki market. We were there around Christmas and there were a lot of guests whether you're waiting for the elevator or using the public bath; although the front desk was always well staffed with short wait times. The rooms are starting show some age...

It was my first time in Kyoto and we were 3 people travelling. I found Mitsui Garden thru Tripadvisor and I am so happy that i selected this hotel. We arrived 1am from a long trip and a drive from Kansai Airport. At 1am the staff that checked us in was very friendly and accommodating. We needed to eat and...

Modern typical luxury Japanese hotel: friendly detailed average English speaking Japanese staff. As usual mini sized rooms if you don't opt for suite or luxury. Free onsen inside but at main floor so less privacy.

Was very impressed by the cleanliness of the room. Room was a bit on the small side overall, but very well designed and maximized the usable space. The location is pretty good, as it is about an 8 minute walk to the nearest subway station, and there are lots of good restaurants within walking distance around the area. Staff were...

Very good location in Kyoto, only 5 - 8 minutes walk from the Karasuma Subway station. Good restaurants such as Nishinotoin Diner, a good place to have traditional Japanese breakfast. Or the やよい軒 四条烏丸店 (Yayoi noki) for lunch or dinner... and many Izakaya restaurants to pick from around the block. Rooms were very clean, guest reps were very accomodating despite...

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The room is small by any standards but this is Japan. Nice comfy bed, fully equipped with all conveniences, even a trouser press. The bathroom has a shower within a bath tub and had lovely warm water at a good pressure any time of day/night. Breakfast was a full hearty Japanese fare with...

This is a nice hotel that is conveniently located within Kyoto. The hotel is clean with good facilities, an especially good hot baths. The staff are helpful and the buffet has a good range of food. The downside is that the rooms are small without the space you need to lay out your suitcase.

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.
