I’m looking for a budget accommodation around Kyoto city Minami-ku Nishikujyo area for mother and daughter (two adult female) between March and April.

Our trip is planned for one or two nights and we’d like to experience being Geisha. Can anyone recommend good shop for this purpose? If possible, I prefer to stay at the accommodation which is close to the city centre and public transportation. A guest house is ok as long as it’s cheap, however, it should be clean.

Easy to use

I recommend Apa Hotel Kyoto eki Horikawa fouri. This hotel is convenient, usable and clean so you can have a comfortable stay. There is a big common bath so you can relieve your tired body after challenging. I hope you enjoy being Maiko and have a great time!

This hotel is close to Kyoto station and Minamiku Nishikujyo.

The price is from 4,500yen per person. Although this is a business hotel, this hotel is matching to where you wanted to stay. It takes about 10mins by foot from JR Kyoto station.
‘Yume koubou’, the place you can experience to be Maiko, is in front of Kyoto station and it takes about 3mins by foot from this hotel. However, it’s a bit chaotic around Kyoto station so I recommend that you go to Shijyo area and go to Yumekoubou in Kiyomiudera so that you can enjoy feeling Kyoto-like atmosphere.

Clean room, near the station and a place to ear delicious food

I recommend Apa (Horikawa douri) at the north part of JR if you look for a hotel around Nishikujyo Minami ku. Sorry but
I don’t know anything about guest houses. This hotel has a big common bath and clean rooms. It’s close to the station and there are many places for you to be able to eat delicious food. The rate will be relatively more expensive than normal one during the high season in spring.

You can go to Touji with Maiko costume !

There is a studio called Yumekoubou where you can experience being as Maiko and it takes about 10mins by foot from this hotel. It takes a few minutes by foot from JR Kyoto station to get to this hotel but it only takes 2-3mins from subway Kujyo station. Ion mall (shopping centre) is very close to the hotel and this hotel is located in the centre of downtown. So you can go straight to the famous spot Touji. Why don’t you be as Maiko and explore the old temple? This hotel is a business hotel so the price is relatively reasonable.

Daiichi Hotel near Kujyo station is good value for money!

It takes about 10mins by foot from Hachijyo gate of Kyoto station to get to this hotel. The free shuttle bus is operating every 15mins and it’s convenient especially when you have a bad weather. You can use Wi-Fi at the lobby and there is a coin-operated laundry. You can have both breakfast and dinner (at the restaurant or izakaya) at the hotel but you’ll have no problems finding nice places to eat outside as there are many restaurants and bars in front of the station. The rate is around 4,000yen per person if it’s not on high season. What do you think?

It’s cheap.

This hotel is located within walking distance from subway Kujyo station. The rate is cheap. It costs less than 4,000yen per person per night without meals. The Western style room is clean and tidy. There are many places to eat around the hotel so I recommend that you go out for dinner. The shuttle bus is operating to Kyoto station so it is convenient.

A hotel you can safely stay at.

Hello. I recommend this hotel for female travelers because of security reason. It takes 10mins from Kyoto station to get to this hotel and it’s close to Nishi kujyo. You can stay there from 5,000yen depending on the date. This hotel also offers a lady plan.

A hotel around Nishikujyo Minami ku, Kyoto city

I recommend Kyoto Plaza Hotel. This hotel is located within walking distance from the west gate of Hachijyo of JR Kyoto station and Kintetsu Touuji station. It means this hotel is located around Nishikujyo Minami ku, where you wanted to stay at. Although this is a business hotel, there is a big common bath and you can have breakfast at the hotel. The double room is better for 2 persons.
In addition, there is a shop near Hachijyo guchi for Maiko experience. I went there twice. The name of the shop is Maiko taiken Studio Yumekoubou.

It is conveniently close to Kyoto station

The bed at single room is relatively bigger (double bed for single use) and you can have more comfortable stay at Shinakan (new building).
I like that breakfast is for free of charge. There is a big common bath so you can take a bath nicely even though you don’t like a modular bath. It’s conveniently close to Kyoto station and it is good value for money.

Close to the station and good access.

It takes about 3mins by foot from the station so this hotel has good access to transportation. The interior is with relaxed atmosphere so you can stay there both for business use and private use. Although this hotel is near the station, the rate is cheap. Breakfast is important factor when you stay at a hotel. You can choose from buffet breakfast or Japanese-Western set so you can eat what you like.

Very convenient.

It takes 2mins by foot from Hacijyo guchi of Kyoto station. You just need to walk inside of the building of the station and then cross the cross walk to reach this hotel. I stayed there for my company’s annual memorial party. There are many guestrooms and restaurants. I could have nice dinner at their restaurant. There is a shop called ‘Yumekoubou’ which is located in the opposite building to this hotel for Maiko experience. You can only take a photo inside of the studio at this shop after being Maiko but if you go to the branch shop in Gion, you can go for a walk around Tatsumi bashi. I think you can enjoy walking while getting lots of attentions from many tourists. Ion mall Kyoto is next to this hotel so you can easily go shopping there. Even though this hotel is located in front of the station, it was quiet inside.

A hotel in Sanjyo karasuma with natural hot spring on the top floor

I stayed at this hotel with my family (married couple and 2 children) last New Year’s day. The rate is relatively reasonable and this is a clean hotel. My wife likes staying there as well. The meals at the restaurant were very delicious. You can conveniently use both subway Karasuma line and Touzai line and you can walk to Nishiki market from this hotel. There is a big common bath with natural hot spring on the top floor. You have to pay additional money to use it.

A clean and cheap accommodation in Minami ku, Kyoto city

I recommend J-Hoppers Kyoto Guest house because this is cheap and clean accommodation in Minami ku, Kyoto city. This hotel is located in Higashi kujyo, not in Nishi kujyo so it takes 7mins by foot from Kyoto station. There are many shops for Maiko experience in Higashiyama ku so I think it is better to stay at a hotel in Higashiyamaku, Cyukyou ku, Shimogyou ku if you want to stay close to the downtown.
