Rooms are pretty small and not very nice. Views from the hotel are not worth it. Breakfast is somewhat average although there is a lot of choice. Very close to the station so easy to access. Has a free onsen at the top floor.
Good location as only 5 mins walking distance to Kyoto station... Hot bath is available but too many people...very crowded so not relaxing enough... but the worst is service..before our arrival...we sent email to hotel for restaurant table reservation... but they replied restaurant is full...we...More

This is a great hotel, located right beside the Kyoto station. It has nice features, like outside and inside hot springs (ofuro), a vast breakfast, and free ramen in the night. Worth the price, recommended.
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.
