Neighbourhood
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.

For what you're paying, the hotel was good. The lights were a bit dim (easily fixable) and the bathroom was a little small. For the traditional japanese room, the staff don't set up your bed for you, unlike other ryokans. The staff were very friendly...More

Clean and beautiful Ryokan. Be careful when choosing room as there are Japanese style or western style. The staff is kind, helpful and customer oriented. Location is not the best, but manageable. My wife and myself really enjoyed the stay, or better said, the ryokan...More
