Toyoko Inn Kyoto Shijo-Karasuma

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 October 2016

The hotel has what most travellers have come to expect in a good hotel, that is, clean, everything works in the room, front desk staff are very efficient and the location was great! The subway/bus stops are about 2 min walk away which make travel to places like Uji, Arashiyama, Kobe, Ohara, etc. are within easy reach. Great food was literally a stone throw away and shopping was everywhere we turned. The only thing that may need a slight improvement is the breakfast. A change in the daily food selection would help.

Reviewed 24 July 2016

I was about to book a hotel close to the central station of Kyoto but last minute i changed my mind and booked this hotel. It was the best decision that made the trip easy and enjoyable. The hotel is located in one of the central streets Shijo dori which is very beautiful and atmospheric at night, has all the shops around. It has a metro station nearby, train, and multiple buses going infront of the hotel, all these make most of the sights approachable. Nishiki market, imperial palace, Kawaramachi disctrict, all approachable even by feet. The staff was frinedly, the hotel clean, the breakfast very bad but there are several cafes around to make up for it. Free wateer was also offered. I would recommend this hotel to travellers

Room Tip: i picked a smoking room because it was a good offer, but it was not smelling at all

Toyoko Inn Shijyo-Karasuma is located just above Hankyu Karasuma station, and this area is the very center of Kyoto. The street, on which the hotel is standing, is Shijyo Street, a famous shopping street, and Shinkyogoku shopping arcade is just 10 minutes' walk from the hotel. Since this hotel is very popular, you should book in advance.

In the middle of two subway stations. Close to hotel have a bus stop. Walking to shopping area is a bit far. But still considered walking distance. Hotel provides free breakfast in the morning. Not many choices, but taste quite ok. Enough for you to fill up your stomach and save money. My uncle, auntie and my parents like the breakfast there. Hotel quality = Price.

Been there on Dec'15. Location is between stations but in walking distance with nice weather in Kyoto. Convenience store is next to. Breakfast was fine. Room was not that small. Just there was no smoking box inside the building. Must come out to freezing smoking outside.
