Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.

The convenient location is the main reason for me choosing stay here for two nights. Apart from the Nishiki Market, there is a local supermarket in front of the hotel! We stay on the highest floor. The room is clean but a bit small. The shape is not a rectangular one but there is a gentle slope at the entrance parallel to the bed. We had two big luggage. We could open one of them between the bed and the desk. For another one, we opened it on the slope but it blocked the entrance. This is an interesting design. On the other hand, the staff are nice and helpful. The security measure is comprehensive. Although there is not a 24-hour front desk service, the password lock helps to filler the hotel guest and other people after the front desk service hour ends. After all, I am satisfied with this stay.

I liked how small and cozy this hotel was. It was located in a perfect location with plenty of shopping, food, and subway stations. As expected, the room was small, but space doesn’t really matter when you’re a tourist and you’re meant to be spending all the time sightseeing and exploring. Come hungry because there is so much food around the hotel. A note, staff does not work from 12-6:00am, so keep that in mind if you’re thinking about partying late.

I went to Kyoto for a conference and book this hotel. It was further from the conference centre than expected but the location was great for exploring the city area. The staff who checked me in didn&t really seem to understand English but we got by. I got to my room which was plain and on the small side. The window was covered and with good reason... There was just the view of the building next door so it stayed closed for the three nights I stayed there. Breakfast was a little annoying as the hotel gave me tickets to local cafes that I can get breakfast at. Walking through the local mall looking for the cafe took a while as the directions from the staff was not really helpful. For the price, it was not so bad. The location was the biggest selling point of the hotel.

We stayed 3 nights during the recent Sakura season and enjoyed our stay. While Izutsu is a small hotel with just around 40 rooms, the helpful front desk staff and little amenities (bottles of water in the room, coffee/tea/soup available in the lobby) were better than in some bigger hotels we stayed in. Room size was decent. Location of the hotel is great. Walking distance to Gion, Pontocho, Kamo River. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

The room is small and dingy with covered windows. The bed wasn't very comfortable. But I was still able to enjoy it and have a good sleep. The hotel is super central, with shopping, restaurants and cafes all around. Can't ask for a better deal than $209 for two people for 4 nights! The wi-fi is good. There is a TV and AC. They also have a laundry machine in the lobby as well as a coffee machine. Coffee and water are also included in the room. The shower had good pressure, and the toilet had the bidet capabilities I had grown so fond of. If you are going to arrive late, let them know!! We arrived at 1 am to find the hotel locked. A nearby hotel rang them up and someone opened up immediately. The hotel locks up early but they'll give you a code to the side door for your late nights. Check-out is early, but they allowed us an extra hour. They also have a service to ship your luggage to your next destination (depends where) but you need to send by 3 or 4 pm for arrival on the next day. They don't have a restaurant, so we had our breakfast at Unizo Inn next door. It seemed like a very beautiful and expensive Ryokan, but another reviewer mentioned it's much cheaper. If so, I'd stay there next time because I fell in love with Kyoto!! :)
