Exceptional”

My friend and I stayed at the Citadines Karasuma-Gojo Kyoto during our recent visit to Kyoto. The hotel was very clean, the beds comfy, and it was lovely to have an opening window in our room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was perhaps a bit far to walk from the train station (about 15-20 minutes) when carrying luggage, in hindsight we should have caught a taxi. The hotel is also about 15 minutes walk to the main shopping area, and we loved exploring the laneways near the hotel. A feature we loved was being able to transfer our luggage to our next hotel in Tokyo (we stayed at the Citadines Shinjuku) so we didn't need to struggle with it on the train to Tokyo. I highly recommend this service!

Best place to base yourself”

Citadines Karasuma-Gojo Kyoto was better than we expected. Great location, great staff, awesome breakfast for the small price you pay. Clean, spacious (for Japan), close to CBD, shops etc. Just a wonderful experience made even more better by the wonderful and attentive staff. Can't speak highly enough of this place and we will be back. Just a tip, if you are coming out of Exit 6 from the subway then turn left, got to the corner, go across the road to the McDonalds. You will see the subway exit 1 so you know you are on the correct side of the street. Walk about 150-200 metres and you will find the Apartments. Enjoy!

Kyoto Apartment style stay”

Citadines Karasuma-Gojo Kyoto is located between Kyoto station and the main shopping area and Nishiki market. Not quite in the main area of Kyoto but a subway station is literally outside taking you south to north Kyoto. The room was large, very clean and well equiped. Small kitchenette, bathroom and central vanity basin. The area does have a variety of restaurants, shops, chemist, supermarkets and I found a great cafe down by the river. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Great place to stay in Kyoto”

Big room, great service, and convenient location.

I really had a pleasant time in Citadines Karasuma-Gojo Kyoto. The location is one major advantage with easy access to bus stop and subway station. Besides, stores selling daily groceries are nearby. The room, on the other hand, is clean and comfortable with a lovely small kitchen. You can find necessary kitchenware to prepare yourself a decent meal, which saves some money. Overall, I really love here, and will definitely visit it again when travelling in Kyoto in the future.

Great location, helpful staff, very convenient”

My sisters and I stayed in Citadines Kyoto for 3 nights and we definitely recommend staying here for anyone who wants to explore Kyoto. The location is very convenient, Citadines is just 2-3mins away from Exit 2 of Gojo Station and is just one station away from Kyoto Station. There are also bus stops very near the area (3-6 mins away) which adds more to the convenience because there are certain areas in Kyoto that are easier to reach via bus (vs. subway). Citadines is also near a 7-11 and a 24-hour grocery (Fresco). The staff are very helpful, they have ready maps for those who need to find banks (for foreign exchange), groceries, etc. They also helped us reserve seats for the limousine bus that took us to Kansai airport. Citadines also had a laundromat available at the basement for a fee which was very convenient for us because we had to do the laundry once during our trip. We booked a twin bedroom which was good for 2 adults and paid extra to get an extra bed for a 3rd adult. Room size was ok, small but still quite big for Japan standards. Water was only free for the first night though, so be sure to buy water for the next few days (at the grocery or 7-11 nearby). We had a wonderful time in Kyoto and will stay at Citadines again when we visit again. :)

Good central location where there are a lot of options in a city that closes early

Like most hotels in Japan, Citadines Karasuma-Gojo Kyoto has amazing service. The staff here go the extra mile in trying to help you with anything - whether it is restaurant or cafe recommendations, or travel advice to tourist attractions. Most temples and attractions are spread out throughout Kyoto, and you might find yourself travelling to neighbouring areas. So there's probably no one best location to stay at. But the Citadines is definitely in a good central location with access to the subway.

we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at citadines kyoto karasuma gojo hotel! the room was so spacious, even by american standards, and that made coming "home" after a long day of sight seeing so relaxing and inviting. the kitchenette was an another plus! we totally love the food experience in japan, and there is a lot of it, so having a fridge, microwave, and tableware handy further enhanced our foodie experience. the breakfast buffet was simple, yet adequate to fuel your morning and get you started for the day. we really liked the cream corn soup from the vending machine, which is free during breakfast hours!

My parents and I spent almost one week in Kyoto, we had a fabulous experience here. The room is very spacious and super clean. Have to say the location, a minute walk to Gojo-Station - Karasuma line, 10mins walk to Kyoto station and opposite the hotel there is 7/11 store. Also walking distance to the shopping area in Kyoto. Another reason we picked this hotel is that it contains small kitchen, all basic utensils are well prepared. Citadines is the best hotel I have stayed in Kyoto so far, we love it!

citadines gojo is one of the most hospitable hotels/serviced apartments i've stayed at. the moment we stepped into the lobby we were pleasantly greeted with tastefully designed warm interiors that is classy yet cosy. the hospitality and service was impeccable - the staff spoke good english, we're flexible to our requests and needs and were extremely helpful. it is located right outside gojo subway station, which is only one stop fon kyoto station itself. on a nice day you could even walk to the hotel from kyoto station. it's also within walking distance to the shopping district of shijo, teramachi street and the nishiki market. the rooms are very very spacious (by japan standards) and my room even came with a bath tub and mini kitchenette! the only downside is that they don't have wifi service in the room. but it's available free of charge when u use your devices in the lobby or in the lounge in the basement! extremely good value for money.

Great value for its size, services and amenities”

Kitchenette, great location, great service, large room (for a Japanese hotel)

This hotel was great value... I only paid a night per twin room, but the room was rather large with nice furnishings. It had practically every amenity/facility. It even had a kitchenette with all the cutlery, utensils and dishes provided. The service was also great. They usually only guarantee 1 pillow per bed, but I emailed them to request 2 pillows in advance. Although they said they could only provide pillows if they had spares, they remembered the request from the email (I didn't remind them about it when I checked in) and provided a 2nd pillow for each bed from the 2nd night onwards. They were also very polite and helpful in holding our bags before check-in time. They even ushered us to the washroom (which requires card access) individually and waited patiently for our party of 6 to wash up and repack our bags. Breakfast wasn't included in the price, but I was happy for that, because there are two 24h Japanese eating places and a McDonald's right next to the hotel entrance. One of them specialises in tonkatsu and is called Machikadoya. It serves a traditional Japanese breakfast menu in the morning, but the full menu is also available for breakfast. The subway entrance to Gojo Station is almost right outside the hotel entrance, making it very convenient. Just 1 stop to the south is the Kyoto Station area, where all the train connections to the region are made. It also has a large underground shopping complex with a lot of food and boutiques. One stop to the north is Shijo station, which is the main shopping street in Kyoto. Above-ground of Shijo station are bus stops for many bus services that bring you to most places in Kyoto. I bought the day pass for unlimited bus and subway rides within the city, and I found that the best way to get around was to take a train from Gojo station to Shijo station and take a bus from there. I would recommend this place without reservation, especially if you can get about the same room rates that I got.
