This was my 2nd stay in this hotel. The location is just excellent! Walking distance to Nishiki Market, Kamo River, Gion etc. As it is located at the junction of Shijo-Karasuma, many buses, subway & train stations are available there! Toyoko Inn standard is very consistent! Fast check-in and check-out! Friendly staffs and nice breakfast.

Stayed here for 5 nights, was in a great location close to transport and city. Convinience store next door was super useful for snacks and forgotten items. Laundry services were good and clean, 200Y for wash and 100Y for 30min dry - detergent was 30Y. Staff were very nice and wifi/breakfast was included. Doors use keys which need to be... More

I stayed here only last week. Very strategic location. 1 min to Shijo Karasuma station and 3 mins walk to Nishiki market on the left of the hotel. The hotel is located at the shopping area which we have Tokyu Hands opposite the hotel. Great place to stay as the receptionist is warm and caring to your needs. Communication is... More

This hotel can be reached by metro and bus. You can go crazy shopping nearby (within walking distance) and take either metro or bus to visit many tourist attractions in Kyoto. If you will be there in the cherry blossom season, it's better to make a booking of this hotel at least 4 months ago.

Just stayed here for 5 nights. I won't repeat what others have said: excellent central location, bus stops and subway, restaurants, Daimaru, Tokyu Hand, Nishiki market etc., all at your doorsteps! The room is small and compact, no complaints. Room 214 has no view; window faces a wall. But I spent most of my time sightseeing, no complaints too. It's... More

I have selected this hotel mainly due to its very convenient location. Just a few step to Shijo subway and Hankyu karasuma station. Only 2 stations from Kyoto subway station. There is also bus stop that goes to many sightseeing spots outside the hotel. Daimaru isn't few blocks away and Tokyo Hands is just directly opposite the hotel. The con... More
