We stayed here for 2 nights and found it a very enjoyable stay! Very close to subway station, which was very convenient after a long day of travelling! Hotel rooms are large in Japan standards - with a functional kitchenette and small lounge room/couch area! All feels very modern and clean. Hotel provides a cheap breakfast - nothing fancy but...

The location is good, right at Karasuma Gojo (烏丸五条) intersection, which is a 10 mins walk from the most popular street (四条). The room is relatively big comparing to other Kyoto downtown hotels, and it comes with a mini kitchen and cooking appliances - a frying pan, a personal soup pot, and a regular-sized soup pot, a turner and a...

Love the location!! The building is just next to Gojo subway entrance. And to visit sites further away there are multiple buses pass by bus-stop nearby. It takes a pleasant 10-15min walk - southward to Kyoto Station or up north to the shopping district of Shijo Dori / Sanjo Dori. Or eastward to Gion. This is perfect as walking is...

we've used Citadines apartments around the world on several of our trips; and have stayed at the Kyoto apartment twice before (2012, 2016). Its easily accessible -- get off at Gojo, just 1 subway stop from Kyoto Stn on the Karasuma Line. And its a 30-minute walkabout radius to many places/sites. The apartment internals are right for 2 persons, with...

We stayed at Citadines Karasuma-Gojo Kyoto in a one bedroom apartment. I could not reserve the apartment online -- only studios were available. However, I contacted the hotel and they were able to secure it for me. I believe they have only one one-bedroom apartment. The apartment was great with kids. So very convenient! We had a small kitchen and...

We really enjoyed our stay in Kyoto, a wonderful, beautiful city. The Citadines was perfectly located and provided a great center for our exploration of the surrounding sights. We would absolutely stay again. The room was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Easily accessible to public transport, it was a great choice.

We stayed in a studio premier with balcony. We had the queen size bed and a bed settee for our 13 year old son. He lovedd the bed settee and said it was extremely comfortable. Everything was clean and modern. It is cramped with 3 but fine for 5 nights. The ability to use for a fee the washing machines...

We booked a Studio apartment and it was exactly as described on the website. It has everything you need for a pleasant stay in Kyoto. The location is quite central, although be forewarned that it is at least a 20-30 minute walk to some of the famous attractions, such as Kiyomizu-dera temple and the Higashiyama area. There is a subway...

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.
