Our stay exceeded expectations. The rooms were roomy and comfortable and included an iron and full board, teapot, microwave, refrigerator and hot plate were provided. Internet access was especially easy and reliably stable. The staff was attentive and extremely helpful with dining suggestions and sightseeing options. Would definitely stay at this chain again.

-Large studio apartment style rooms -Laundry machines in basement -Friendly staff -Only downside was location. It's just far enough by foot from top tourist sites to make it slightly inconvenient. Most places were a 15-20 minute walk. But area has good bus and subway accessibility.

This hotel is my go to hotel in Kyoto. Walking distance to the Kyoto main station, Gion and a number of interesting shrines. Always clean, bigger rooms than typically found in Asia and very friendly and helpful staff.

My usual Kyoto hotel was booked solid but as a regular to Citadines Melbourne I thought I'd try here too. Decor is very similar between hotels and the room size was the best I'd had in Japan. The kitchenette was helpful but not really used. There are great resturants around the hotel, not gourmet but very nice. The staff where...

I had seen pictures of Citadines Kyoto on the Internet so my expectations were high, and I was not disappointed. The hotel entrance is sophisticated and comfy, while not being too overstated, the staff also let us store our baggage due to our early arrival so we were free to roam the streets before check in. Upon our return and...

From the zen-like entrance-way to the rooms, everything was perfect here. Staff are very attentive and will spend as long as you reed explaining things, giving directions, writing out addresses and names in Japanese etc. Within walking distance to the train station and some temples it is fairly central to everything. Rooms are typical Japanese size but super efficient. Close...

This hotel got such high rating in TripAdvisor, but in terms of service, it's not really up to the level. Firstly I already wrote email to the hotel before my arrival saying it's my honeymoon, asking if at least can help to arrange for a bit higher floor, but completely nothing have been arranged and not any little souvenir nor...

It's very close just 3 min walk to Gojo station. Ms.Yuri is very helpful as my wife was not feeling well and she arranged the room for us immediately even we reached the hotel before check in time. Hotel is very clean and have all needed facilities.

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.
