Economical and quite convenient

We spent 3 nights here. It is at a good location and the front desk staff are very helpful. Nothing really to write home about. The best thing is that it is just across the street from the Keifuku Electric Railroad station, making it very easy to visit Arashiyama.

If you arrive at Kyoto by JR, then do take the bus from Kyoto JR station. It is much more direct with no need to change. You can buy a full day bus pass for 500yen and use it in Kyoto for the whole day. (One journey is 220yen and if you take 3 journeys you will already have saved money.)

My husband and I went to Kyoto for a week as part of our honeymoon. This hotel was simple, but had everything we needed. The rooms were spacious enough and the TV even had an English channel- although the films were ones we'd not heard of before, but it was nice to hear some English. The staff can't speak English very well, but they are very patient and helpful. We weren't keen on the breakfast - as I don't eat fish and found that most of the riceballs / potato salad etc had fishy flavourings, but it's ok because there's a Macdonalds just down the road, which is very reasonably priced. There's also a Daiso (like a £1 store) which is fab to pick up some nice souvineers and gifts nearby and lots of bus stops. The bus will take you to Kyoto station, where you can get to all the main tourist spots and you'l even be able to get to Gion (the Geisha district- very reccomended) and some of the main shrines & temples using the bus service. There are 3 laptops in the hotel foyer, that guests can use for free, which is useful to contact home and the travel agent as well as to get online assitance with maps etc.

Convenient for sightseeing in Kyoto. Reception staff had poor English, but were polite. Breakfast was Japanese/Western, as mentioned on other reviews. Room was small but the free wi-fi made up for it! Launderette on the ground floor very useful. Definitely good value for money if you are on a budget.

Room tip: Stay in hotel if you want to visit Kyoto - wonderful and interesting city.

Had a great stay at this Toyoko Inn. Desk people could have been a little more friendlier, but they weren't rude either. Room was a decent price, especially for Japan. Bought the Toyoko Club Card for 1500Y (you have to pay cash) and got a 30% discount on the second day. Japanese breakfast is included. Consists of musubi, miso soup, potato salad, tsukemono, suimono, toast, coffee, and tea. Room was small, but comfortable. Wifi is included too!

Be early for breakfast! There is a mixed Japanese/Western buffet breakfast in the foyer area. Some foods do run out. The rooms are fairly cramped but clean and with TV and tea-making facilities. On the gound floor there is a coin-operated washing machine, tumbledryer and drink machine. There are also computers in the foyer. The staff do not speak much English so get brushed up by the time you reach here. We found it easy to catch buses from nearby bus stops and walked to the Gion district where there are plenty of food providers.

Booked here by our agents. Arrived at the hotel - 15 mins before check-in, but were made to wait!
Men sleeping in the lobby and checking out 'interesting' websites.
Business Twin room - very strange - 2 of everything (TVs, kettles, fridges). Walk in - door to bathroom right in front of you. No more than a foot from the end of the beds to the wall. No space for luggage, clothes, to sit or swing a cat. Windows overlooking a building less than 3ft away - no light! Beds as hard as rock.
All very clean though, but not a place if you intend to relax a bit after a day of activity before going out for food. We checked out and found another hotel (using this hotel's free internet).
