This is one of two Toyoko Inn chain hotels that we stayed in during our 10 days in Japan and they were very similar in look and feel. Very small room and bathroom but clean, quiet and conveniently located 5 mins walk from Gojo station, which is one subway stop from the main Kyoto Station. Friendly staff and the breakfast... More

Thanks to TripAdvisor found the hotel easily. From Kyoto station take Karasuma line subway to Kojo station turn left at corner - can see McDonald's across the road. Hotel is on left just before Family Mart. Staff were cool at first but later friendly. Speak some English. We always get a twin room & have plenty of space but not... More

One stop from Kyoto station, 5 minute walk and you're there. Via subway, you get quickly to most of the shrines and temples or you just walk downtown within 10 minutes. It's clean, rooms are not too tiny and an okay breakfast is included. Perfect for the price you pay.

Coming from Osaka the hotel is very easy to find. Just one metro stop from Kyoto station to Gojo, take exit one, walk 5 mins and you are there. Location is a big plus, close to cafes, restaurants, shops and walking distance to Kyoto's temples & shrines. Our room (tiny bathroom, hard bed) felt a bit old but except for... More

I actually stayed here on April 2013 but no April Choice on trip advisor's date of stay. I think it's because the more than a year has passed from date I stay therefore the choice is not available. Well,,OK..enough for the intro and let me begin my review. We arrived early in the morning around 7AM from Tokyo by Willer... More

Love the location, with so much to explore be it food or shopping, convenience of bus stops and subway stations just within minutes of walking. Although room is compact, but definitely equipped with all amenities and necessities one could expect from a normal hotel, including pajamas!! Love the eco-choice (where cleaning is not required unless requested) - one can leave... More

The rooms are very small and compact but this is to be expected in Japan. Don't bring large suitcases, there is no place to store them. (It's a business hotel). Good Japanese breakfast available. Very clean, courteous staff, some English. Unless you specify that you don't want your room cleaned you must be out by 10 and can't get back... More

the Karasuma Matsubara bus stop (buses 5, 26). Room size is ok, and with some amenities, but of cheap quality. Wifi in each room, but the connection is very slow and not reliable. Staff speaks English without any problem; we arrived early, and we were allowed to leave our bags in the lobby. Breakfast is included, but is of mediocre... More
