We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour group and we were not disappointed. Its rooms were very comfortable and the bathroom amenities more than adequate. There was good wifi connection - as with all the places that we stayed in Japan. Staff were more than helpful. It is well situated to walk to many of the sights...

Before I get to the particulars of our stay here is why you want to stay here. First, they have a free shuttle from Kyoto station to their hotel. You can get the information on the website. I only discovered that about three days before our trip so it is easy to miss. If you want to sightsee you can...

It is within walking distance of Gion and the temples and shrines and the main shopping street , the castle .

We stayed here as part of an organised tour of Japan, and can't fault anything about the hotel. The location is very central for exploring Kyoto's sights and restaurants, and is also to a very high standard. The staff are very friendly and helpful and it's worth stopping for a coffee and cake in the downstairs tea rooms. Whilst in...

The Okura is well situated in the center of Kyoto across from the city hall and close to the Kamo River and the many restaurants and bars that line its banks. The lower floor of the hotel has direct access to the large underground shopping and dining mall that also links with the city’s subway system. On arriving at the...

Good location and use of the shuttle bus [need to book] back into the city very handy. Very friendly and helpful staff especially the 2 ladies who assisted with authentic restaurant suggestions. Older style hotel where you have to hand in your key. No complimentary water or western tea bags [I’m trying with the green tea!]. Easy walking to the...

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
