My mom and I stayed for 2 nights at Fujiya. The ryokan is located 2 minutes walking from the Kyoto main bus/JR/metro station, which makes it a very convenient spot. There are numerous facilities around, including restaurants and a big shopping mall. You can also easily walk to the main shopping area (it took me about 15 minutes).
Apart from that, the quality of the room and the overall services were just average. Hosts were nice, and welcoming. The atmosphere is more one of a stay-with-my-family than anything else. You have a free internet access in the "living-room" (pretty slow, but enough to check itineraries or emails).
NB - there is a cat living there, so anyone allergic must be aware of that.
I would not recommend this ryokan for elderly and/or persons with walking difficulties (really hard to get upstairs because of the numerous steps; futons were not particularly comfortable). Perfect for younger travelers, wishing to stay in Kyoto and visit a maximum.
