Hotel Meldia Shijo Kawaramachi
4.7/5109 Reviews
The photos both here and on booking do not do this hotel justice. It was so much more pretty. I stayed in much more expensive ones in Kyoto and yet I will 100% return here. The rooms are so beautiful, clean, cozy and cute, especially the tatami/japanese style ones. The bathroom was beautiful, with a separate toilet and separate bath and shower (and everything looking brand new). The staff is very kind and the location is simply perfect (and I had a great veiw of Gion from my window).

This was my first trip to Kyoto and there are many options for hotels. I was having trouble deciding exactly where but Good Nature turned out to be an excellent choice because: 1. It's right downtown - a few minutes walk to two subway stops - you'll use the subway to get to good attractions like Inari, Nara, Kiyomizu 2. you are also within walking distance to Pontocho, Gion, Nishiki markets 3. There were 3 of us so we had 3 individual beds - in a standard room and despite this being 28m2 the layout of the room is very good. Of course, if you want the deluxe room it's much bigger but it will cost a lot more 4. Managed to score a trip.com 36% discount (for 5 nights) which was a no-brainer (we just got the room only) - pay for buffet breakfast if you must (plenty of Starbucks around if that's your thing) - I did book the first night separately direct through the hotel website though as the trip.com offer didn't extend for 6 nights 5. The room was very clean, the staff were very friendly and explained everything. 6. Buffet breakfast was a good selection of Western and Asian choices. The restaurant was very clean. The prosciutto was amazing!
Tokyu Stay Kyoto Sakaiza Shijo Kawaramachi
4.8/5333 Reviews
Love this hotel. There is nothing I could fault on. Great location with many eateries around and just next to nishiki market. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Room was clean and new. The only thing I wish for was a hot spa to end my day but other than that, everything was perfect
Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Kawaramachi Jokyoji
4.6/5124 Reviews
It is the stay at Mitsui Gardens Hotel which is 3 times in Kyoto since entering this year. There was a concept in each hotel of the hotel, and this time it was a collaboration with the temple. Also, the goodness of the cospa is very attractive, and it is also happy to issue a coupon of color 々 when staying overlapping. This time I used a coupon of ”breakfast free”. It is also a service that makes you want to use. Overall it is compact and there are no group guests, so you can spend very quiet and calm. There was also a lounge service and a large bath, so I was able to relax. It is a short walk from Shijo Kawaramachi Station, but it is very quiet because it is one from the main street. The gion Festival started on the day, and I was able to encounter the procession of Ochigo. Another reason I chose the Mitsui series hotel is ”breakfast to enjoy”. It is characterized by the hotel, and this time I had a Japanese food called ”Sangha Chirashi” on the plate. I am glad to be so concerned. Then the staff were very kind. After checking out, I noticed that I forgot to umbrella in the room, and when I told the front desk, I responded with a smile and went to take it immediately. This time I couldn't participate in the morning work of jokyo Ji Temple, but I will definitely participate next time.
Hotel Grand Bach Kyoto Select
4.6/5150 Reviews
The room is very good. It is located in Shijo Kawaramachi. There is a commercial street downstairs. It is very convenient for shopping, but it is not noisy at all. The service is also very good. If you arrive early, you can store your luggage. I like this hotel very much and also like the atmosphere of Kyoto. I will stay here again next time I come to Kyoto.
Kyoto Central Inn
4.4/546 Reviews
The hotel in Kyoto, which is crowded all year round, is difficult to make a reservation at this time of spring break, and the price is soaring, but it is in it, and it is relatively reasonable to stay I think it is an old building, but it has been renewed little by little since I used it before, and it was clean and comfortable except for door lock and air conditioning. There is no way that the unit bus is small, but there is a feeling of cleanliness, and the water supply plug is independent type, and it was easy to use. Free amenities that can be taken freely in front of the front desk were also substantial, and it was saved from the mask to many kinds of tea. The first floor is staba, the convenience store is next to it, and the underground is Kawaramachi station, which is very convenient. I want to use it again.
