Firstly, the only positive is that it's very close to Kyoto Station. That's it. The rooms are very small (even for Japan standards) and are incredibly overpriced. They sell the rooms as big enoigh for 2 people however they'd be lucky enough to be big enough for 2 children. After our first night my partner woke up with a number...

We payed a whopping 27,000 yen per night, per double room to stay here during Sakura season and it was not a good value. The rooms are small but not abnormal except for the price. Our room design was wacky however with the TV behind the only places you could watch from and the tea/coffee set hidden behind the TV....

It's close to ths station. End of positive remarks. Reception staff don't understand English, but pretend they do, which is much worse. Nano-rooms certainly unfit for one pax, that they sell for two. Air conditioning instructions iin Japanese only. Lobby permanently crowded by luggage. Absurd prices. And so on and so on. In short: find somewhere else to stay; if...

Nice and clean rooms. Hotel well located next to Kyoto station. Easy access from the trains and plenty of restaurants around. Breakfast is very basic with limited choice. Rooms are small (Japanese style) but comfortable. Ok for a leisure trip for few days in Kyoto

There are about three APA hotels within the vacuity and this seems to be the closest to Kyoto train station. It's about 500 meters walk I believe. The hotel is small, basic, but not unlike the normal hotels in Japan. As we reached earlier than check in time they stored our luggage for us so we can proceed with our...

The hotel is close to the station and the staff are helpful and friendly: these are the only positives. The hotel is close to a hospital and sirens blare through the night.

There are multiple APA hotels in Kyoto. This one is closest to the train station. It is clean and functional but the room was very small for the price. $120 didn't include breakfast. The buffet will cost another $15.

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.
