Budget hotel in Awesome location”

Was staying in Hotel M's Est Shijo Karasuma in Kyoto from 13-16 Jan 2020. The location is simply awesome, like 3 min walk from the 2 nearest stations, Shijo and Karasuma station & 7 mins walk to Nishiki Market. Juz so u know, there’re plenty of nice restaurants or eateries in the surrounding area. The room although small (Norm is Japan), is designed rather cozy & look pretty new too (maybe gd maintenance). I like the fact that there’re hangers in the room for us to hang clothes (which is not always available in many hotels). The bed was fine, I requested for lower pillows & my request was acceded. The AC / heater system was also working perfectly. The room was always kept clean and tidy. The staff were friendly & helpful too. The WiFi is fine too, totally no problem surfing Youtube @ all, even in the showers. Ultimately, I think this is still a gd hotel for those on a short sojourn & is looking for convenience in locations. Wld definitely come back here if I return to Kyoto!

Nice hotel in a great location”

This was a great choice for my stay in Kyoto. Close to the Kyoto station but not right at the station. The hotel is two stops north on the Karasuma line near Shijo station. Proximity to Kyoto station made the hotel easy to use as a base. The hotel is located just a few steps off of Shijo street and nearby is the Nishiki Market district. There are a lot of shops and eating options in the area. The hotel and the hotel rooms are clean. The rooms are on the small side by North American standards but they have an efficient lay out. The bed was comfortable. I was extremely satisfied with the service and staff. I will try to stay here again on my next trip to Kyoto.

perfect hotel”

This hotel is perfect in every way! location is the best, just round the corner from shijo station exit 19 (stay on same side of the road & walk away from the cross junction), walk past Tokyu Hands & turn in at the Yoshinoya corner. Dont bother staying at Kawaramachi where you still need to transfer subway line, Shijo station is just 2 stop away from Kyoto station. Daimaru is just opposite & there are plenty of restaurtants in the street behind Daimaru (Ippudo ramen, pancakes, sushi, tonkatsu etc). Nishiki market is 10min walk & it link you to Teramachi shopping street. walk further down & you will reach Takashimaya. Room size is decent, compact but everything is available like a foldable writing table, fridge with 2 bottles of water complimentary, small bathtub. bed is comfy & reception allow early check-in for me. I will definitely stay here again!

Great little hotel close to transport and Nishiki Market”

Stayed for two nights in November in economy double non-smoking room. Very nice little “no-fuzz hotel” with modern room. Contains everything I wanted in a room, clean, efficient, fresh, modern and comfortable. The room is small, but not the smallest I’ve been to in Japan. Don’t expect to keep a big suitcase open in your room. We had a small carry-on sized bag which we could step over when we needed to. The room is very practical for its size, layout is also good. Bathroom has nice shampoo, conditioner etc. The location is very good. More or less sitting on top of the Shijo station which takes you to Kyoto station in two stops, also walking distance to shopping in central Kyoto, Gion and Nishiki Market. Nice breakfast place literally in the neighboring building, called Eggs’n’things if you haven’t booked with breakfast.

Hotel M's Est didn't even appear on Google Maps when we searched for it. I guess cause it is a pretty new hotel. My family enjoyed our stay here cause Hotel M's Est is pretty much next to the main street. There are a lots of food outlets nearby and the staff are pretty friendly too. They even have a robot in the lobby! But it only speaks Japanese, so i couldn't really play around with it.

Really had a great stay. The location is strategic, lots of stores nearby because it is situated at a shopping district. The hotel is reachable by Shijo station (Karasuma line), just walk around 2 minutes from the station. However, if you want to do some work in the room, there is a very small space to do so and not very comfortable.

Very convenient location just a short walk away from Subway Shijo station. There is also a bus stop just a minute walk from the hotel with many buses plying around Kyoto. There are many department stalls like Tokyu Hands, Daimaru, Takashimaya and lots of other shops and eateries in the vicinity. The hotel room is clean and the pillow is soft. The receptionists were helpful and polite. The hotel does not have any restaurant which is fine with me.

Easy access and great location”

The facilities, cleanliness and location of this place is the best. It is very easy access to a lot of attraction. Nishiki Market is just 200 metres away and it is located in the central location where it is connected to department store and you can take bus or travel by foot for various attractions in Kyoto. It is also easily access from Osaka!! I travelled from Osaka via Hankyu line train (only costs 400 ¥!!) from Umeda and get off at Karasuma station. Take exit 19 and turn right and in 100 metres you will see a Yoshinoya shop, this hotel is right next to Yoshinoya. Overall I have a great stay at this hotel.

Excellent location, very near train station exit 19”

Location was excellent, hotel is very near Hankyu Karasuma train station exit #19, approximately 95 metres (either by staircase, or the escalator near Mizuho if you have luggages to carry). Situated along the main stretch of shopping centres, very near Nishiki Market, and has a good ramen shop just outside the hotel (serves excellent tsukemen)! Hotel has laundry machines (pay 200 yen for a 5kg load washer and/or 100 yen for 30 mins in the dryer), ice dispensing machine, and a smoker's room. Really love the hotel room! It uses space saving concept (the foldable table and chair) but not much space to hang your clothes (can hang about 3 pieces at max). Bathroom has a slight smell coming from probably the piping in bathtub but tolerable. Overall really love the room design concept, location and friendly staff at reception. Excellent hotel, value for money.

Good location which is so close to Karasuma station and Shijo station as well as walking to Gion and Pontocho just 10-15 mins. The hotel is very clean, the room is great (not too small, having space for big baggage).

Thank you very much for staying in our hotel.We greatly appreciate that you posted a review. As many guests said,our location is convenient for going around in Kyoto city. You can access major sightseeing spots, shopping area and main station directly. There are so many shops and restaurants around our hotel. The bed introduces world-famous "Simmons Corporation" and original brand "MARO" which I developed jointly into all rooms. It heals the body which is tired from sightseeing and work. Our hotel adopted the bed, the towel, the amenity to touch the skin of the visitor directly with feelings to be available in peace. It is refreshing, and shampoo, a conditioner, the body soap prepare for "the DHC olive gold series" characterized by the fragrance that can be relaxed. It resets a one-day end clearly. We will try to improve our skills and hospitality with best effort. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Hiroki Onishi  Front desk

The hotel location is the best! It's very near the Karasuma station and Shijo station. The space is small but has all the necessities. We stayed for 4 nights. The hotel does not have a restaurant but that did not bother us.

Highly Recommended!”

The hotel is definitely valued for money, the room is small but practical, it fits 2 medium size suitcases, the bathroom is clean and well maintained. There is also a public laundry room which is a bonus. The hotel located near the central district of Kyoto, there are restaurants just next to the hotel, convenience stores (Family Marts / Pharmacies), bus stops are all within 5 minutes walking distances. Shinkyogoku Shopping Street & Nishiki Market are about 15 mins walk. We stayed there when the M6.1 Osaka earthquake happened, so we spent most days worry about how to handle ourselves during after-quakes. So if there's one thing the hotel needs to improve is that they need to communicate more with foreign guests about special situation like this. Overall the hotel is definitely my first choice if i should visit Kyoto again.

Great location”

Hotel was next to the Karasuma/Shijō stations, which was really convenient. It was also a few steps from the main shopping street with a Yoshinoya just downstairs and a few 7-11s nearby, which was great for our late night supper fix. The room itself was comfortable and clean. For our travel dates, the price was better than most other hotels in the vicinity.
