We booked directly with Hotel Iroha via the Internet and were pleased at their quick and efficient response (in perfect english as well). The didn't request a credit card for confirming the reservation which we thought odd but there was no problem with our confirmation when we did check in. The hotel is about a 20 min bus ride from the Kyoto station but is very convenient for walking to shopping and restaurants. it's also close to the main bus route for easy sightseeing access. Check in was not until 4pm but they readily stored our bags in the morning before we checked in, so we could go sightseeing. When we did check in, they had already placed our bags in our room - nice that we didnt have to haul them up to our room ourselves.
The rooms are traditional ryokan style - tatami and futons, although western style rooms are available.
We stayed in the A style room which was very nice.- had a toilet (with a heated seat which we love!), sink, shower, small bath, blow dryer, small fridge and kettle. We were travelling with our two young children so we were pleased that they had taken the care to include 2 children's yukatas in the room. Our only issue was a burned out light bulb which was quickly fixed. The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke english well.
Their public baths are fabulous and it's nice having the yukatas to wear down to the baths.
Hotel Iroha is not fancy but if you are looking for a clean, quiet, convenient and very well priced hotel, this is the place. The service was great.
