I have stayed at this exact location 2 years ago and found it very convenient. This Toyoko Inn is situated on Karasuma about midway between Gojo and Shijo. Although it is not in the busiest downtown stretch ( like the Shijo one), it is easily manageable to walk to Kyoto Station ( 10-15 minute walk) or Shijo (10 minute walk). There is also a small post office branch on a side street nearby just in case you need to mail postcards. Restaurants, izakaya, ramen shops, convenience stores can be easily located.
I have reserved a double room for 7 nights. My husband has joined the 4&5 club( need to pay 1500 yen to join) and we received a 2000 yen discount on our sunday stay. Rooms are small but functional. The only complaint I have was the unavailability of a non-smoking double. I dealt with this by opening the window to vent and it worked out ok. The hotel staff provided us with a mini-humidifier and that definitely helped with the dry heat from the heater.
Breakfast is included in the rate. It includes miso soup, rice balls, bread, tea and coffee. Family Mart, a convenience store, is just a stone throw away and it stocks sausages, eggs, sandwiches, muffins and more.
Staff at front desk speak some english and will provide you with a local map. Free internet service and printer are available in the lobby ( please be considerate). Otherwise, tourist information center at the Kyoto Station is an excellent resource.
Toyoko inn demonstrates great price performance as always. I will definitely return.
