OUR OPINION:

The OMO5 has a dynamic, young feel to it. It's refreshing for the hotel scene in Kyoto and delivers exceptional value.

Rooms

As is typical with the design of all OMO brand properties throughout Japan, the rooms are very simple and sleek. They aren't the largest rooms in the city, but they are well-fitted to maximise space thanks to their minimalist design. For larger groups, there are quads available as well as the superior room which caters for up to three guests. 

Location

The Omo5 is located in Sanjo in the heart of Kyoto’s downtown. Surrounded by shopping arcades, bars and restaurants, and with access to Kyoto’s city buses, Kyoto Shiyakusho Mae Station, Sanjo Keihan and Sanjo Station, it’s a great spot in the city to return to at night. 

Food and drink

The hotel has a café onsite where breakfast is served as well as snacks and drinks throughout the day. 

Families

There is a quad room available, which might best suit those staying with children.
