While conveniently located just one minute away from a train station, Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Sanjo is hidden away off the main road. The Japanese garden that can be viewed from the lobby is the former site of a water stream garden and has been reproduced with excavated garden stones and boulders. The hotel is perfect for rejuvenating yourself while taking in a sense of history. Sanjo Street is lined with stylish shops and traditional shop/home buildings that are sure to delight visitors of all ages. Stretch out your arms and legs for a leisurely bath while gazing at the water stream garden to ease the fatigue of the day.This is open until 1:00 late night, so you can use it even after a late arrival.

City Centre
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.

We loved this hotel. After reading the advice from other travellers, we upgraded from a double room with a small double bed to a double room with a bigger bed which I believe was 25 sqm. The room was big enough and super clean and the bed really comfortable. We found the
