Inexpensive Lodging at Smile Hotel - Kyoto, Japan

Family Friendly Smile Hotel

The Smile Hotel in Kyoto Shijo, Japan, is a great place to stay if you're traveling with family or friends. You'll experience the history and culture of this significant district within steps of the hotel. Because of its central location, the hotel puts you close to attractions, culture, and historical buildings. Smile Hotel has 138 rooms and a restaurant serving Japanese cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This hotel has one meeting room and offers free wireless Internet.

Cozy Guest Rooms

Although the rooms are a bit small and the design simple, you have everything you need for a night of rest. Each soundproof room has blackout drapes, a flat-screen television with digital channels, and a small refrigerator. The premium bedding topped with white bed linens is comfortable and clean. The bathroom has a deep soaking tub for relaxing after a day of touring and the shower has a rainfall showerhead. Your room comes with complimentary toiletries and slippers.

A Taste of History and Culture

One of the best places to visit is Kyoto Station Building. This isn’t just any train station, it’s a small city with a metropolis of 15 floors of trendy shops, restaurants, and museums. By the way, don’t tip the restaurant staff; it’s considered rude. Go to Nijo Castle, one of the most visited places in Kyoto, and take the self-guided tour lasting about one hour.

When you get tired of temples and gardens, catch a glimpse of everyday life in Kyoto by visiting the Nishiki Market. In operation for more than 400 years, it’s found on a very narrow street. There you’ll find fresh fish and meat plus fresh vegetables and fruit. There are plenty of noodle shops and places to grab a bite to eat, plus you’ll find utensils, dishes, clothing, and plenty of trinkets.

Getting Around Kyoto

Getting around Kyoto is easy, with lots of signs posted in English. Rent a bicycle and explore the narrow streets. Hop on the subway, only a 5-minute walk from the hotel, or take the Hankyu bus line; it has plenty of stops. Of course, traveling by public transit system by train or subway is the fastest and most convenient.

The Bottom Line

Smile Hotel Kyoto Shijo in central Kyoto and the entertainment district offers comfortable rooms at an inexpensive price. It’s close to major attractions such as temples, shrines, and gardens.
