We stayed at APA Hotel Kyoto-Eki-Horikawadori for 2 nights. The room was tiny but clean and comes with all amenities we need. The wifi, however, was surprisingly poor! We think because the hotel have many rooms and many people were using the wifi at night so it was almost impossible to use the wifi from our room (no big deal...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights just before Christmas. The hotel itself is quite nice and the staff at the reception were friendly and helpful. It's fairly conveniently located, about 5 minute walk from the station. Great spa on the top floor. The main problem was that the bed was unbelievably uncomfortable. You'd barely notice the difference...

Really small room, in fact, the smallest of any of the rooms we had in Japan. Still, it had all the standard conveniences. Bed was less than a double, so barely enough room for two people. Staff was okay. Not particularly helpful and didn't go out of their way to be friendly, but not unfriendly either. Location was pretty good,...

Again, just a place to rest your head. You're not here to stay in the rooms so remember that rooms in Japan are small and compact. The beds are hard, but we found it a good location and were simply after a place to sleep at the end of the day. Location was good, food available nearby.

Good location (10 minutes walk from Kyoto Station); close to restaurants shops and supermarket. Clean room and hotel. Bed was uncomfortable and the room was so small that we could barely open our luggage. There is a mini indoor onsen upstairs. Electric kettlea are from ancient age. Staff speaks barely English

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.
