There are hundreds of reasons why you should visit Kyoto, but did you know that visiting Japan can be expensive, particularly for the accommodation costs? On average a hotel room in Kyoto could set you back anything from 200 USD to 400 USD. For this list we’ve done our best to source out the top ten hotels and guesthouses that charge under 200 USD, anything for around 100 USD is considered a bargain in Kyoto!

1. Sauna & Capsule Hotel Rumor Plaza (from 37 USD/4227 JPY)

A capsule hotel that is specifically designed as cheap and basic overnight accommodation for those who do not need, or can not afford a full hotel room (which can be expensive in Japan). This particular capsule hotel is specifically for men and offers bathing, massages, free breakfast and, of course, an alarm clock. The capsules are small but you have everything that you could need for a night stay.

7. First Cabin Kyoto Karasuma (from 49 USD/5597 JPY)

We love this upscale capsule hotel which offers spaces with a TV, curtain door, shared bathrooms, spa bath and common lounge. If you wanted to really ‘splash out’ then you could reserve a first class cabin which, apart from the TV that is in the normal capsule, it also has a little side table, locker, slippers, and towels with plenty of room to keep your luggage safe in the space with you. Since it is just a short walk from Shijo Subway Station it is perfect for exploring Shimogyo Ward with its temples and culture.

Also located in the Shimogyo Ward district of Kyoto, this hotel offers fairly spacious rooms and each private room has a kitchen giving more flexibility to self-cater.
