I had a few days to myself in Japan recently and visited Kyoto. As my time was limited, I stayed near the station at the APA. I had a Single room which was tiny, but as arrived late and left early it was perfect for my needs. I was surprise how well it actually meet my needs. A 3/4 bed,...

Just two waahing machines in the whole hotel (placed one in the male onsen and one in the female onsen) always busy (occupied also at 4 A.M.). Pay attention: the washing machines are accesible 24h even if the onsen are closed. Standard japanese room (small) was good. The staff fixed the bathroom in a few hours (the bidet didn't work...

This hotel is an usual Japanese style business hotel, but there is a large public bath in hotel. The room size is small, about 10m^2 for a single room. The bath in the room is also compact, that is, Japanese typical business hotel style. The price is reasonable in Kyoto, I think. If you come to Kyoto as a business...

All the amenities you need for a pleasant stay. Beds are spotless, with firm yet comfortable wide mattresses even in single rooms. Location is close enough to bus and trains, so you can base yourself here and take in the town's tourist attractions without hassles. Convenience store right beside the hotel so it's hard to beat. No views, but reaching...

The hotel is a no non sense business hotel, it has a 7 eleven behind the hotel and some nice restuaurants across the street and outside. The hotel is 2 mins walk to Kyoto central.

APA Hotels in Japan are relatively consistent. They offer a reasonable price, are clean with the typical small rooms, breakfast is a combination of Western and Japanese breakfast options. As I am not spending a lot of time in my room the hotel was a good option for my stay in Kyoto. It is pretty close to Kyoto JR Station,...

The rooms were a trifle small, but they had all the amenities for a comfortable stay. Staff were polite, hotel was spotlessly clean and the location was terrific - 5 minutes walk from Kyoto Railway Station. A great place to make your base for long stay - we stayed 4 nights. The 7-Eleven next door was very convenient.

Hotel is relatively clean, reason for this low rating is because of the bed...it's a rock! Use the onsen the next morning to relieve your back from the pain. This is not an over exaggeration...there are other places I'd recommend instead

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.
