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

It is true that having just one elevator becomes a problem during the morning rush hours especially if your room is on the lower non-smoking floors. We were booked in a non-smoking room but luckily were given the top, 13th, floor room so the lift was not an issue for us. However, if you are sensitive to smoke like us,... More

I stayed one night during the maple season last December. The check-in time was strictly 4pm, and check-out time was strictly 10am, need to pay extra and notify them prior. No excuses. I arrived the hotel around 2:30pm, even the room was ready we couldn't check-in. So we left our luggage at the lobby, checked in late that night around... More

We spent 4 nights in this hotel, which is at 30 minutes walking distance from both the famous Gion area and the Kyoto JR station (which is a reference point not only for trains, but also for: tourist information, currency exchange, buses that go about anywhere in town, places where to buy good food, for instance the Andersen bread etc.)....

Unfortunately, I could not get a weekend reservation because this hotel is very popular. So I had to break up my trip. If you are a Toyoko Inn member, you can reserve up to 6 months ahead, 3 months ahead if you're not. See their website. This staff speaks English well, was nice to tell me that I had enough... More

Gojo is located one train stop from Kyoto station, and a short ten minutes walk to Shijo station where you can connect to Osaka with the Hankyu trains. A short half hour stroll will bring you to the lively shopping area of Teramachi Arcade and Gion. It was also near a pick up point for Japan Sunrise tours which we... More
