The best was the location. Close to the station, within a few BUS stops from the central station, and a BUS stop (Karasuma Matsubara ) in front of the hotel. Walkable distance to Nishiki Market, department stores and restaurants. The room was clean, comfortable, free bottles of water each day, and have bikes to rent if you want. I didn't... More

Very nice and cute hotel in the heart of Kyoto. Several nice restaurants close by and staff very good at making recommendations. Also close to convenience stores ans shops as well as sights. Possible to rent bikes at hotel. Would been 5/5 if rooms where slightly larger and breakfast had a non Japanese offer.

Loved this hotel - the location was nice and central, amazing and helpful staff who were always polite and willing to make reservations for us and help us navigate the train and bus systems. The Wi-Fi was really fast and helpful for planning out our days in advance. Spacious and comfortable room for Japan :-). Definitely recommend staying here!!!

When traveling to Kyoto you expect lots of things, but having a quiet hotel in a nice neighbourhood is not one among them. In this case, Itoya Kyoto Hotel, makes this quietness its first name. In a very nice area, a bit a part from Gion but in 15 minutes walking from there. Good location, good staff.

Super cute hotel. Great location and very friendly staff that speak English. You must order the breakfast, very delicious. But, note that the breakfast is more like a filling lunch including salmon and miso soup. Close to the train station too.

My wife and I spent five nights at the Kyoto Itoya Hotel in April 2016. We enjoyed our stay however there were a few quirks to the hotel that, over a five night stay, became irritating and as a result I feel that I can only rate it as an average hotel. We arrived in Kyoto by train and tried... More

Buses are really well organised for visiting tourists.We made good use of the 3 Raku buses,each of which run a loop from the station to salient interest points. Our room was high with a view at rear,we requested... More

We had a triple corner room for three, two adults and one child and the bed just fit in so no room to swing a cat. That said the staff are very friendly and helpful, the service was first class. Position was excellent, a short walk to the prime shopping district and a short bus/subway ride to the hub of... More

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighborhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
