Kyoto MYSTAYS Hotel, Shijo, Kyoto – Recommended Family-Friendly Kyoto Hotel

If you are looking for a family-friendly hotel in central Kyoto, we highly recommend the Kyoto MYSTAYS Hotel. Kyoto is a magnificent historic city, but the hotels are expensive making it hard for families with kids to find great options. The Kyoto MYSTAYS Hotel checked all our boxes – great location, clean, good price and four people could sleep in one room (two kids and two adults) and free Wifi. Breakfast buffet included was a side Kyoto MYSTAYS Hotelbonus!

The Kyoto MYSTAYS Hotel is located a five-minute walk from Shijo Station which is two train stops from Kyoto Station. You can walk to Nijo-jo, Nishiki market and more. We rented bikes from J-Cycle (recommend by the hotel) close to Shijo Station and bike to the Kyoto Zoo, Kyoto Aquarium, Kokomo no Mirai and all the way out to Kiyomizu Kyoto MYSTAYS HotelTemple. Highly recommend renting bikes. Note, there is a super market on the corner of the same block and also Tulley’s coffee across the street.

Our room at Kyoto MYSTAYS Hotel has two double beds, a small desk and a nice size and modern bathroom. The room was very clean with an air purified in the room. We had our little ones climbing all over the room and did not worry about the cleanliness at all. The rooms were also very quiet.
