Beautiful, luxury hotel with large room, delicious breakfast buffet, friendly staff, and easy access (5 minute walk) to Kyoto Station. The hotel just undewent renovation last year so room and appliances are up to date. Would definitely stay here again!
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

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...More
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.

Best way is to email directly to the hotel and ask. They're usually quite honest to answer that kind of questions. They will be able to answer the best located rooms away from noise. Also check recent reviews of the guests.
