What an amazing experience, the staff are so friendly and extremely helpful, we felt as though we were welcomed as part of the family. The accommodation was delightful and we loved getting the real Japenese experience. Breakfast was amazing. When you walk out the front door you see a Japanese Temple. An easy walk to the station and the buses.......

My room was 201 - かわいい花: a very beautifully decorated and spacious room with intricate details that just scream Japanese. The futons were very comfortable...

My husband and I stayed at Ohanabo for two nights during our trip to Kyoto earlier this month. I had booked this accommodatin back in December, but even then was unable to get longer than the two nights that I had booked. The ryokan is so clean and cozy and I wished I could have spent a longer time there!...

I don't even know where to begin....This Ryokan was the most amazing place. The staff was beyond friendly and the meals were so amazing. We did the traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast the first day which was terrific and so filling. The second night and morning we had the Shabu Shabu and the western breakfast. The beef was melt in...

Only a short walk from Kyoto Station. I fell in love with this guesthouse at first sight when I saw the sign and flowers at their front door. It's the cleanest house I've ever seen, even cleaner than my own house lol. And the elegant decorations are amazing. Staff are extremely welcoming and helpful. The traditional Japanese breakfast is superb....

We stayed here during Christmas 2015. The inn was small and intimate. The services were superb. The staff were always greeting us, smiling and very thoughtful and attentive to our needs. They recommended restaurants and helped us to book, gave us tips. The beds were so comfortable, better than the hot spring hotel we stayed later in Hakone. Highly recommend...

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.
