Subject: Re: Hotel recs in Kyoto and Osaka?
Dear Mei Ching,

I was in Kyoto Sep 04 and stayed at the New Miyako Hotel. I remember it be well below your budget of USD250/night. Very central, right across from the Kyoto JR station. There are restaurants and department stores where the JR station is. You can also catch a bus from the station to other parts for Kyoto.

Hope this helps.
