Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good hotel, close to Kyoto train and bus station. Rooms are of a good size and have good Wi-Fi, tv, safe and kettle. Beds are comfortable. Bathroom is compact with very small bath. Staff are friendly and helpful. There is a suite of lockers on the ground floor which are very useful. Breakfast is excellent with various styles of food available.

I booked the hotel through a accommodations and bullet train package deal. It's located close to the Shijo subway station. The hotel is clean, staff friendly and helpful, and the bed was comfortable.

Breakfast was included in the deal. I opted for the Japanese option. The food was good and fresh coffee was available.

宿泊込みの新幹線ツアーで当ホテルに宿泊しました。地下鉄の四条駅や繁華街に近く、コンビニもすぐそこにありました。

ホテルは清潔でスタッフは親切丁寧に対応下さいました。枕は堅かったですがベッド自体は寝心地が良かったです。

朝食付きのプランでして、和食か洋食を選ぶことができました。和食の豚汁が美味しかったです。

I stayed at the Via Inn Kyoto during the Cherry Blossom Festival. I found the hotels rates very reasonable and that was one of my reasons for booking with the Via Inn. The hotel facade seemed small, but the hotel was spacious inside. It was clean, bright, and decorated beautifully with items from traditional Japanese culture. The staff was very friendly and eager to help with whatever I needed. I actually did not have a room for part of the time I was there (because the city was FULL for the season), but they contacted me when they had a cancellation and offered me the room at the same rate I had for early booking. I thought this was very kind of them. I found all the people of Kyoto (and Japan for that matter) to be beautiful and kind. The room was small compared to American standards, but we do love to waste space here in the US right!! I found the room fine, it had everything you needed... just more "efficiently planned". The bathroom... let me start by saying American toilets will never be good enough again. This thing did everything short of cook breakfast for me!! Speaking of breakfast, they offered a free continental breakfast every morning that included: Coffee, Tea, Juices, Breads and Jams, Pastries, and the most fantastic "cabbage slaw?" with peanut dressing. I became addicted to this "salad" and am still trying to figure out the secret back here in the US. I did squirrel away one of the packets of peanut dressing and plan on taking it to my local Asian Market to see if they carry it. So the hotel was very nice, the staff was fabulous, the amenities were great, the free breakfast was more than adequate,... Oh! The location was fantastic! It's located off of the main roads on a small side street that's lined with lots of little shops, restaurants, and bakeries. It's VERY close to a train station. If you are planning an extended trip like I did I would recommend renting or buying a bike. You find that LOTS of people ride bikes in Kyoto, and it's a great way to see the city. The service at the hotel was excellent, the rooms were very clean and cleaned daily. I plan on staying at the Via Inn the next time I'm in Kyoto. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Did you know that Kyoto is only second to Rome in the number of World Heritage sites?? There is so much to do and see in Kyoto! Oh, it does not have a swimming pool, I accidentally clicked that and it TripAdvisor won't let me un-select it!

This is a no frills hotel but it's very good value considering the location, quality of room and the period we were there (cherry blossom peak period). The room, though small, is clean, bright and functional. The reception staff were very helpful though their English ability may not be that good. Most of the guests staying there seem to be japanese, but we saw a few other foreigners there too.

A simple breakfast (3-4 types of bread, salad, coffee,tea, juice) was provided. Very good value considering we only paid 9900 yen for a twin room. the bread was delicious!

It's 5 min walk to Shijo subway station and near Nishiki market as well as a few departmental stores.

We chose this hotel to stay in Kyoto for 2 nights. Location is good, near Karasuma station and plenty of food choices nearby. Bus stops are near so you can get to the temples, shrines and other tourist destinations.

Overall the hotel is good value for money. Service as usual in Japan is very good. Room (Twin) was comfortable although they are still using winter quilts so I got quite hot.

There appears to be a mixture of tourists and business guests. I first came to Kyoto back in 2007 and since then there has been an explosion in Tourism. They come from everywhere, Australia, Europe and Asia. Its great for local businesses but does detract from the place.

Internet was good and free breakfast was adequate. Overall, if you get a good rate its not a bad alternative for Kyoto.

2 days in Kyoto to see Sakura. Since it is Sakura season, really difficult to book a hotel with good location at reasonable price.
Location: Shijo is a place to stay because it is in the middle of temples, castles, food markets. Most importantly, there are two subway lines (Kyoto subway and Hankyu subway) stopping in Shijo and many bus lines of coz. Via Inn is about 5 mins walk from subway exits (look for Kyoto Art Center for signs, since Via Inn is opposite the centre). Nishiki market is about 10 mins walking distance from Via Inn.
Room: The size of single room is a bit small (around 13sqm), which is similar to other Via inns. Free wifi in the entire building but needs different passwords to lock in (better security). But it is clean anyway.
Facilities and services: Microwave on each floor, efficient check-in/check-out, free breakfast (though limited choices...but certainly make you full).

This hotel is really accessible from the subway Shijo station and within the walking distance from the city centre of Kyoto. The location is a main matter for myself when choosing an accommodation, so this place is very ideal, I would say. As the hotel itself is located a couple of blocks away from the main streets, the traffic noise did not bother me at all. However, as some other reviewers mention, I heard noise of the alarm clock or similar stuff of the room next door.

As I chose the lowest rate available for single use, the room was not that big, but the cost easily met the quality of the provided room and service, especially by considering the rate was inclusive of breakfast buffet. The buffet range was not much and longer stay guests may get bored, but for short stay guest who would like to stay economically, this is the hotel you could think of.

Now this came as a surprise...tiny little room that ends as it begins (i guess most of japan is like this), yet very efficient and you ask for it and it is there....a nice bed, all the neccesities, a microwave across the passage, tea maker, hot water, toiletaries, a writing pad, phone service, night pyjamas and a free LAN connection. And a friendly staff who would find English difficult, but the difficulty would melt away in their humble hosting for their guest. The hotel is clean, not new but not bad ....its a good hotel. the breakfast is meagre as all three days I had to eat the same buns and salad and tea and juice. no variety. situated on shijo, with lots of amenities (bustop, MRT, family mart and the main market a little way ahead) its a nice location to stay in.

I found the location very handy. Of course the room was small but this is to be expected. Hotel was clean. nice breakfast included and staff was helpful. Some spoke better English that others. I was one of only a few non Japanese there. Close to the big market and the staff directed me to a street/alley with lots of pub style restaurants where I had a great time. Very good value.

I would have given this hotel 5 stars but for the fact that our tour operator had booked us a double room for 5 nights in the “smoking” side of the hotel and I could hardly breathe as the smell of smoke was so strong. It even permeated the air conditioning in our room. Apart from that the room was a good size, the hotel had good laundry facilities and an ice-making machine (which we needed as it was 33 degrees in Kyoto when we came in May). The breakfast was good when they remembered to get in some fruit and cereal. They did that for the first couple of days and then stopped. I had to ask them to provide that again as I didn’t fancy a fully-cooked Japanese breakfast at 8am every morning. The service was friendly and efficient and I would recommend this hotel as it was very well located with lots of good restaurants around for dinner in the evening.
