Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto, the real heart of Japan, is a well-preserved, ancient city. If you’re traveling for leisure, the city center is an ideal place to stay because you’ll have easy access to public transport to take you to tourist attractions near and far, like the Nijō Castle. You will also find several clubs, shopping areas, and excellent hotels like Hotel Sunroute, which you can book through momondo.
