Right in the heart of Kyoto
Unizo Inn Kyoto is right in the heart of the city. You walk outside and you see the liveliest part of Kyoto. So many great shops as well. And the hotel is beautiful, a lovely entrance and a comfortable room. I highly recommend Unizo Inn Kyoto.

This is my favourite hotel in Japan!
This is my favourite hotel in Japan! The staff are amazingly friendly & helpful. The location is second to none--around the corner from Nishiki Market, cross the street and one block back is old Kyoto (Ponto-cho), about 15 minutes walk to Gion and Yasaka Shrine, 20 minutes walk to Fushimi Inari, the Imperial Palace and Nijo Castle. Wander the back streets and discover temples and shrines galore. The breakfast buffet is very good and plentiful. After lunch and into the evenings the restaurant is a very popular pasta restaurant with the locals and all you can eat appetizers. There are also on site laundry facilities. There is plenty of shopping in the local area--don't miss the Food Hall down the street! This was my second stay at Unizo Kawaramachi and I am certain to return. Only one word of caution--there is another hotel in the chain called Unizo Karasuma-shijo--don't confuse the two--it is easily done!

Fantastic location
Friendly helpful staff and a great location with a really cool market and shrines nearby. Also the street for the Goon Matsuri parade! The hotel and room itself seems very new and modern. Would book here again.

Exceptional Hotel!
One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. Nice sized room, walking distance to so many attractions--Ponto-cho a short walk across the street, Kiyomizu-dera about 20 minutes walk, Nishiki Market right around the corner, huge shopping street just behind the hotel, excellent breakfast choices--both Japanese & Western available, laundry facilities. In the evenings the hotel restaurant is a very poplular with locals, a few minutes walk from local transport, restaurants & cafes galore from ramen houses to the giant food hall just down the street. A big arigatou gozaimasu to the staff & management! Unizo Inn is everything a hotel should be and I hope that I am able to visit again. I have already recommended it to friends.

Contemporary hotel in great area
Great location, right in the heart of shops and restaurants. Room is very well equipped for its small size (typical of Japanese hotels). Has a small fridge and kettle, a safe and lots of electrical outlets. If you are using North American electronics, my room had one outlet for a 3prong plug (which I needed for my laptop) which was beside the door. All other outlets only for 2prong plugs. Also, a bit disappointed that there was not one English TV channel, like BBC or CNN. Easy to use washer/dryer off the lobby with English instructions. The hotel and room were very clean and modern, so I would stay here again.
