The staff here were really friendly and helpful. The hotel is also really near the station (although we got slightly lost when we arrived - if you walk more than five minutes away from the station to get here you're lost too!). We chose a...More
This hotel was our saviour from the horrors of Tani House. It is located within 5 mins of the train station in kyoto, but is difficult to find as you have to walk down the entrance of a car park to find it.

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.
