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.

We had a beautiful one bedroom suite on the ground floor overlooking a courtyard (Room 101) , so much space, own laundry , separate bedroom, separate toilet, big lounge area for relaxing with a kitchenette. Enormous amount of space by Japanese standards.This is a modern and spotless boutique hotel nestled in the narrow back streets of Kyoto.The staff were all attentive, we interacted with them more than in a normal hotel as you have to hand over your room key when going out for the day.A nostalgic touch !

A beautifully curated tray was delivered into the room for breakfast every morning at the requested time. This was included in our room rate.
Less than 10 minutes walk to 2 different stations, bus is a good option with some research and preplanning.

Part of the adventure was dinner each night in one of the myriad of tiny restaurants hidden in this area (and the quirky bars).Sake bars, wine bars, beer only bars one full of vermouths from around the world, most places with only a few seats. I was captivated by how it all works as a business model as there was only one sitting in the restaurants and we never felt rushed.A few language barriers but every meal was wonderful ,and very reasonable prices by Aussie standards.Absolutely no tipping anywhere including bars.

This was a FABULOUS stay, down to the detail. Arrival, room, service, cleanliness, staff and location.
We had a room on the 4th floor which was very spacious and comfy. Perfect temperature, lovely bedding and linens, the lighting, bath and bathroom were all of the utmost simple and elegant standard.
The staff was very helpful thanks to the services provided by Nishkawa, Hori, Ruri and Hirota. They helped us get around Kyoto, arranged for our baggage delivery to our next hotel and even helped arrange for a 24 hour laundry service since their pickup time had already passed.
The anteroom also had a lovely couch and makeup dresser (boudoir) which my girlfriend used and liked a lot.
All around 10/10, highly recommended. If I were to come back to Kyoto I wouldn’t doubt staying here again!

We absolutely love this boutique hotel/apartment. Not only that it is conveniently located to near subway station, tourist attractions and nice restaurants, this hotel is clean, rooms are spacious and cleverly designed, wifi is fast and have double basins in the bathroom (very important for people travelling with family). And most important of all, staffs are so friendly, polite and their willingness to assist ensure our stay in Kyoto is enjoyable and memorable. Highly recommended to all our fellow travellers.

3. The room is cleaned spotlessly each day.
3. Good size separated toilet and bathroom.
4. A closet area for us to store our luggages and bags.
5. Good location, about 5 mins walk to the subway and many excellent restaurants nearby.

Well appointed room with balcony. The room was large and modern in comparison to other Japanese hotels. Very helpful staff in advance and during our stay. We ended up visiting an exceptional French style restaurant within walking distance called Bistro Ramage for dinner. We highly recommend it. This hotel is a great stay if you are visiting Kyoto. Our only recommendations are to be able to customize the breakfast options and have foam pillows are an options

The Tomoya is a fresh new boutique hotel of only 14 rooms well located within the ‘downtown’ area of Kyoto and set amongst the mix of old houses and shops and newer infill buildings.
The streets are tight and generally one-way with more bicycle and pedestrian traffic than vehicles. Each street provides its own surprises that are only found by walking.
The area is within walking distance to the Imperial Palace and other historic sites and close to MRT and bus routes.
Being new the hotel is clean and the rooms comfortable and well appointed with a modern Japanese aesthetic. The mattresses are generally hard and the pillow options restricted. The prefabricated shower rooms are great but you need a degree to operate what should be a simple function.
The staff are very helpful and attentive with nothing being too much trouble with most staff having a reasonable grasp of English.
A little oasis in a lovely area of Kyoto well suited to couples wanting an old-town experience.
