The hotel is just minutes of walking distance from the JR Kyoto Station. As we relied on JR trains to travel around, the hotel has offered an excellent location for us to explore around Kyoto and go to nearby cities. It is a cosy hotel and the room is not exceptionally large but good enough for accommodating three beds. Hotel...

My mom and I booked a Comfort Deluxe twin room at the Century for 5 nights in mid April. Having stayed at a lesser priced, much nicer hotel in central Tokyo, we were very surprised to find the room we'd booked at the Century was extremely dark and with very old furnishings and technology in the room and limited amenities...

Stayed 4 nights with wife. Pro: Next to Kyoto station. So easy to get all trains and bus. Staff especially M. Kannada is outstanding if you wish to plan daily trips in Kyoto or need certain restaurant. Con: Hotels.com booking showed for 1 person in room. So only 4 breakfast vouchers when I had paid for both. Oh well, other...

Nice hotel, clean with lots of staff. Unfortunately for the price there are a few problems: -WiFi barely works, and I don't mean for streaming moving, even emails are a huge challenge, I called the front desk and they said "yes can be slow" which frankly is unacceptable at this price - While rooms are clean and nice (newly updated)...

Great location but lots of extra charges on top of room charge, eg charged us for cappuccino despite paying already USD 70.- for family brakfast, staff not very forthcoming and confused about charge, first waived and later came back to insist, unbelievable.

Great location, 5 minutes from Kyoto JR Station and near all shopping and transport lines. Surprised that parking only cost 1,500 JPY for a single night. By far the cheapest hotel parking in Japan Staffs & Service are excellent Easy check in. Explained construction next door, give us a option to choose either sides (noises of construction or railroad view...

I read some of the reviews complaining about "small rooms", "AC not working" and "construction noise". I travel extensively for work and for vacations so, my personal opinion is much more positive than some of these previous posts. Room size: Is accurately portrayed, on the hotel's website, based on the square meters by room type. Similar in fashion as western...

This is a hotel not a ryokan. Having said that, this hotel has a classic look and feel especially in the lobby. The pictures from the website are not quite accurate as lobby and rooms are smaller than pictures will have you believe! Rooms are ok but in winter the air conditioner does not quite work! The room is stuffy...

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.
