Profile: Shimogyo

Profile: Shimogyo

Shimogyo is in downtown Kyoto, and includes Kyoto station as well as the iconic 131-meter Kyoto Tower. Scale the structure to be rewarded by stunning panoramic views of downtown Kyoto and the surrounding mountains of Higashiyama and Arashiyama from its observation deck, 100 meters above ground level.

For a spot of retail therapy, head 2.5 km north to Shijō Kawaramachi, a hectic intersection that’s home to Kyoto’s most renowned shops. Browse designer clothing at the elegant Takashimaya department store, before descending to the gleaming basement food hall to sample some mouthwatering gourmet cuisine.

    Great location, breakfast is ok, front desk staff are friendly, but hotel room a bit run down, cleanliness does not meet expectation, dusty and kettle is dirty.

    Near to Kyoto Station. Allow guests to choose and pick additional toiletries as required, including choice of pillow. Community lounge was a good hang out place while waiting for others.

    Conveniently located and nice hotel to stay in

    The hotel is located about a 5-minute-walk away from Kyoto Station. There are a lot of restaurants and bars to choose from in the area. The check-in and check-out process was seamless. The staff spoke decent English and was extremely helpful. The standard room that I stayed in was considered big for Japanese standard. It was clean and had good lighting.

    Will definitely be back! Convenient & comfortable

    Situated very close to Kyoto station, its a very convenient hotel. The rooms are small but comfortable & they had many smart storage solutions for our coats & items despite its size. There is a supermarket right opposite & a convenience store close by. The staff spoke amazing English, and were very polite & helpful. They also had an abundance of free stuff including about 5(!) choices of pillows, a stuffed toy for kids, and free face masks, shaving kits, hair treatment, coffee, tea etc. It was my favourite hotel during my trip & I'll definitely be back again.
