The location seems very great at daytime, but at night you'll hear the trains passing by. The rooms are very small, without enough space for two travelers. The beds and pillows are awefull. The bathroom is very practical, you can do three things at once... The breakfast is pretty good. Some of the front-desk personnel is just rude.

Even by japanese standards and by comparison to other hotels in the range these rooms were very small, thankfully we only had one bad between two people cause we would have struggled to fit two. We didnt have breakfast but if the line was anything to go by it probably wouldnt have been worth it anyway. Biggest issue with the...

This time thank you for staying at APA Hotel <Kyoto ekimae>. Because room in itself is ecological made as a concept of APA Hotel, one room becomes slightly small each.

It is at 5 minutes walking from Kyoto station, there are also some combini on the same road and there is a cheap looker for the luggages. The hotel it's nice and provides you, with toothbrush, slippers, razors. The room was quite small, but honestly I need a place to wash and sleep.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights while in Kyoto. The first thing to mention is that the location is excellent. It is a few minutes walk to the Kyoto station, from there you can get on endless possibilities of trains and buses. There's also lots of restaurants in and below the station too. Even though it was close...

We wanted a hotel within easy walking distance of the bus terminal/train station and decided to give this hotel a try. It is very walkable from train/bus station, a few minutes away left of the Kyoto Station "Central Exit". There is a BIC Camera and 7-11 nearby. The hotel areas are a bit dark and slightly dated. Our room (615)...

1) location and price was why we chose this hotel 2) after coming from a modern hotel. This hotel is seriously dated. They are still using keys to unlock the door. 3) helpful staff which got us to the bike parking place down the street. Because we can't communicate in Jap. But we still had to figure the parking charges...

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.
