This hotel is good value for money

Although this hotel is high-class, the price isn’t so expensive and it’s close to the station. It’s good value for money. The room is relatively spacious so you can have a relaxed time. This hotel is located in front of the station and it’s very convenient for sightseeing in Kyoto. The staffs are kind. Breakfast is delicious and I’m sure you’ll be satisfied with your stay. I recommend this hotel.

It’s great hotel near the station

I think this hotel is the best place to stay at as a group. I stayed there with my sister and I could have a comfortable stay. I really liked the fact that this hotel has good access to transportation wherever we go. I couldn’t visit whole Kiyomizu dera due to the construction when I went there for the first time so I recommend that you check it in advance.

Reasonable

Although it’s depending on the seasons, you can stay at this hotel less than 8000yen. This hotel is near the station so it has good access to transportation. It’s a perfect hotel for sightseeing. You can take a buffet meal so that you can eat your favorite dishes as much as you want. Inside of the hotel is clean and I think this is a good hotel.

The nearest hotel from Hachijyo gate (Shinkansen gate) of JR Kyoto station

It takes 2-3mins by foot from Hachijyo gate to reach this hotel after getting off at JR Kyoto station by shinkansen. This hotel has good access to transportation. Twin room at main building is relatively cheaper but the room is a bit tiny so I recommend that you stay at the room in south wing so that you can have a relaxed time at comfortable space of 23m2. You can visit pretty much all shrines and temples in Kyoto if you use a 1-day free pass of city bus and subway. In addition, you can leave your luggage at the hotel after check-out. It’s convenient service.

This hotel is in front of Kyoto station so it has good access to transport

It is important to stay at a hotel in good location if you stay in Kyoto for 2 nights to explore the city. This hotel is located in front of Hachijyo gate of Kyoto station. You can enjoy going sightseeing spots by bus and subway from Kyoto station. This hotel belongs to the famous Hotel chain group so you’ll have no problems in regard to the quality of service.

The convenient location and clean

This hotel is close to the subway and Kyoto gosyo so the location of this hotel is convenient. You can also walk to Nijyo jyo. Although this is not a new hotel, the room is clean and its design is chic. I think you can even save some money from your budget if you use a plan from their HP.

Cheap and convenient

Although there are many shrines and temples in Higashiyama area in Kyoto, staying at hotels around this area is expensive and there aren’t many hotels where you can stay less than 10,000yen. However, I recommend this hotel because it has good access to Higashiyama area and is cheap. I stayed at this hotel before and inside of the hotel was also clean. In addition, you can easily access to not only Higashiyama area but also Nijyo jyo. I think you can explore the city for sightseeing by bus.

A hotel near Kawara machi and it is convenient for transportation

If you plan to visit many shrines and temples, I think it’s better for you to stay along Kawara machi between Sanjyo and Yonjyo due to the good access to transportation. There are great connection of bus and train. You’ll never get bored dinning out or spending time around this area because it is the busiest downtown in Kyoto. However, I don’t recommend this hotel if you travel by car. If not, I highly recommend.
