This hotel in a central area of Kyoto. Very close to main streets, and subway station. Rooms are small, but comfortable. Nice staff, good service. Free WI-FI. They serve only Japanese style breakfast.

The hotel is well run and the rooms have everything you need and everything works well: a/c, internet (ethernet and wireless). Nice bed with decent room lighting. Management is friendly and wants to help. Japanese breakfast is good and the coffee is excellent too (and no problem getting refills). Rooms are furnished with nice fresh towels and robes and 2...

The hotel is located 15-20 min away by foot from Kyoto Station. There are also multiple nearby convenience stores, which serve as quick, cheap breakfast options. The front desk was very helpful, accepting packages for us and making dinner reservations for us. The rooms themselves were very clean although somewhat small; we appreciated that our room had two beds. There... More

The hotel is not far from the main station, about 15 minutes on foot. It's a cosy confortable hotel with a very decent price for being in Kyoto. There is a nice bar and free wifi. There is breakfast available but be aware is japanese style.

Well situated - 10 min taxi ride from station; thereafter busses easy to use and stop close to hotel. Clean room. decent sized. Great bathroom. Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Faultless. We were travelling through Japan. Look no further for an excellent place to stay in Kyoto.

Booked at the last minute and with not a lot of options available on that night we were more than happy with the size of the room ( large for Japanese in the Y20000 price range), the nice and new fitout and the bonus of a separate w/c. The staff are very friendly and helpful with any request . The... More

Itoya is a great trendy little hotel well placed to walk and see many of the local sights. A quick train ride to most places - if you can work out the subway lines!!! The rooms were quite big, nicely presented, clean and comfortable......except for the pillows (too hard for this little dreamer). These guys offer a luggage forwarding service... More

stayed here for 3 nights in room 501 which was deluxe w two beds. Very large room compared to our previous Japan hotel. Great location. Pillows were odd with beads in them (I'm American and used to feather down pillows).

My parents celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary with a family trip to Japan, and Kyoto was our first stop. What a delight it was to start with a 2 night stay at Hotel Kyoto Itoya. We learned that the building was originally a thread factory and their unique key chains had thread tassles to symbolize this history. The hotel was... More
