Being in Kyoto for a long stay, it was important to find a hotel close to transportation at a reasonable price. Kyoto Itoya Hotel exceeded our expectations! During our stay our room was clean with towels replaced daily. We appreciated the bathroom space with separate shower area (Japan style) and bath for relaxing after a long day of walking. The room is small but there was plenty of space. The bed was comfortable and the amenities as well as refrigerator were nice. There is no view which didnʻt matter to us. We also very much liked that the room was warm as Kyoto was chilly. To this review, weʻd like to add that the main desk staff was always helpful and ready to our questions. As we were there on the day of the recent earthquake in Ishikawa area, it was good that they could help our understanding of the news. We would also like to say that the folks who clean the rooms do an excellent job and in our interactions completely courteous and helpful. There is a breakfast and "lounge" area but we did not use it. If you are looking for a well-located, clean hotel central to transport with a positive staff, this might be the place for you.

If I could give this hotel 4.5 stars, I would - as it is, since that option isn't available, I do believe that it deserves five stars. The hotel room is very spacious, especially by Japanese standards. It's also very clean and tidy, as per Japanese standards. The front desk staff are very friendly, and speak enough English to help you in case you don't speak Japanese. The location isn't perfect - but it's made up for by the fact that the hotel charges less than many other hotels in Kyoto. The location might be a 4/5, but the value certainly is a 5/5. They do bike rentals as well, which easily mitigate the suboptimal location of this hotel. All in all, I do recommend that travelers come and stay here, and I'd likely return here on my next trip to Kyoto.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was smartly decorated and a really good size. Staff were friendly, efficient and very helpful. We didn’t have breakfast so I can’t comment other than to say it was quite expensive and there are plenty of cheaper options away from the hotel. We did day trips to Hiroshima and Nara from Kyoto which I recommend. The train station has a lot of food options if you want to get breakfast there.

We had an amazing stay there. Very conveniently located next to a central metro station and bus stops and 10mins walk to a main street with lots of shops and restaurants. The staff went above and beyond to help us and recommend best ways around Kyoto, which contributed greatly to our lovely stay there.

We spent 2 nights here in early November 2019 during our Japan trip. This is a very nice, quiet, well located hotel in Kyoto. The rooms were larger than I expected, although the bathrooms were standard Japanese size (i.e. small). The hotel is quietly elegant, with a well appointed lobby and breakfast room. The breakfast room also doubles as an afternoon break room, where you can enjoy a complimentary soft drink, or discounted beer. Public transit is easily available, with a subway stop just a 5 minute walk, and a bus stop almost at the front door. As with most of Japan, there are innumerable restaurants within walking distance from this hotel. Considering that the Kyoto hotel scene is usually overpriced for what you get, this hotel is a good cost friendly option.

For the first time in Japan I feel cheated. The rooms are clean and spacious, the place looks good overall, nice music and furniture. Where does my feeling come for? Mainly two things: 1- Poor breakfast, they make this optional and if you buy it before 10 pm it’s cheaper. Don’t do that, you get better quality and portion in the majority of the places on the street. 2- At the check-in they offer you a voucher for drinks, only when you use it you realize that it’s only for a tea or something similar or can be used for a discount on a beer which is of course overpriced to 600 yen I am picky since I travel a lot and I like clear and direct communication. It would take little effort to be rated good from me but I cannot at this stage. I hope they will get this message as a suggestion for improvement.

We’re leaving Kyoto today after 5 nights at this gem of a hotel. A 700Y cab ride from Kyoto station and a 10 min walk from the market and shopping area, this is brilliantly placed. At under 100€ a night for a modern, clean and well presented property it’s also excellent value for money. The staff are lovely and accommodated all our requests with efficiency and precision. There are a number of coffee shops inside a 3 min walk to take a cheap breakfast - we especially liked Caffe Veloce. The room is small but big enough for our stay. The bed is a 1.6m and very comfortable. The air con has multiple settings - we preferred the dry setting to keep the moisture from the air but not dry us out as much as aircon. At night the unit was near silent. The bathroom is a modern typical Japanese style. The shower had great water pressure. All in all if you want a great experience for a very reasonable price take a cab ride or 20 min walk from Kyoto station to this place. You’ll not be disappointed.

I really liked this hotel for a number of reasons. It is fairly new so everything is clean and in good order. The rooms are surprisingly large for Japan. One downside was there was no in-room safe but things could be left at the front desk. I’d have preferred to have had an electronic key rather than have to go to the second floor reception each time. The location is great. Gojo subway station is one stop from Kyoto station then a 7 minute walk. Better to take the bus. Number 5 and others stop right outside. From the same stop you can go right to the bamboo forest area too.

Extreme courtesy of people at reception and at breakfast (speaking english). The room was not very big but comfortable enough for two, with modern forniture, with a nice bathroom. Breakfast is very good although with no sweet items: the choice is between four different menu based on eggs or cheese, ham etc, coffe and orange juice. Excellent quality. The hotel is just in front of the bus stop (a few stops from Kyoto Station with bus 22 or 5) and close to metro stations, which is very useful because Kyoto is a town where buses go everywhere are frequent and easy to use thanks to the map that is given when you buy the 24 or 48h pass for bus or bus+metro at the bus information on the right when you exit the station from the central exit). Close to the hotel are several (economical) restaurants and a few supermarkets. Absolutely recommended for visiting Kyoto
