The hotel is about 1km walk from the Inari station in a residential area. The room was tiny by American standard but typical in urban Japanese cities I suppose. Would not recommend this hotel due to its poor value proposition.

Thank you for staying with us. We will renovate all geust rooms until July. They might be more Japanese style. And also we will open a bland new hotel near Nijyo castle at the end of October. If you have chance to come to Kyoto again, please visit new one.

Booked a non smoking semi double room with breakfast. When we got to the floor (7th) - no smell... But when we got into our room it smelt like smoke for sure. They bought up an air fresher spray, which I used all over the room and had to open the windows to air out the smell. Room is tiny,...

This was our 2nd stay in this hotel, having stayed here on our first trip to Japan in Oct-Nov 2012. We honestly felt like we had returned home as this hotel is in a nice quiet area outside of the main city of Kyoto, with a number of small and friendly shops nearby. Of particular note is the 2nd hand...

Stayed for 3 nights. We picked this one because of the availability around and — of course — the price. Pretty poor service, sleeping experience and a kind of a joke breakfast. Getting there — taxi, approx. 1500Y from Kyoto Station Check-in — OK, smooth, strange key policy (you have to return it every time you leave the hotel) Lobby...

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
