    This is a good choice if you want to experience a Ryokan at a fair price. The rooms are authentic and the facilities very clean. Personnel are friendly and very helpful. There's little in the way of extra amenities such as bottled water and food....More

    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
