Therefore it is very convenient to commute, but what to aware is its tiny size The hotel is in a walking distance from Kyoto station, surrounded by coffee shops and minimarts. So, it is very convenient for travelers. You can reach the hotel easily... More

This is an excellent choice for anyone flying into Kansai airport in Osaka and depending on public transportation. It is just down the street from Kyoto station. If you come out of the station where the buses are and head to the street corner you can cross diagonally to get to the corner with the Pachinko place then just head... More

Room was quite small but comfortable, not very much room if you are a tall person but otherwise everything you need really. Room was clean and tidied daily, bathroom quite small but functional.

Yes, it functions OK but nothing fancy. If you are travelling fast, and just need a place to be parked, then this hotel can be perfect, but no extra entertainment with it. However, the location of the hotel is in the centre of Kyoto city and super close to Kyoto station, so it would be very easy to find places... More

I had a 3 night stay at this hotel. The staff were excellent, spoke English and were happy to mind our bags for several hours pre checkin.

Clean hotel, tiny rooms with barely enough room to stand yet there's a 48 inch TV taking up half the space. Doesn't make sense. Overall, good value for money and in a decent location near the train station.

Less good stuff - Like everyone else said, the room was very small. 2 suitcases don't fit in there at all if they aren't standing up the whole time.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in May 2016. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly. The hotel is situated in a great location - only a few minutes' walk to the station. There are many food options nearby. I'd definitely stay here again!

The location was great, breakfast was good, large TV screen but the room was smaller than a cruise ship cabin. The length of the room was the bed and no room for anything. You could barely turn around in the bathroom. Would not recommend it.

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.
