Well located ryokan
Iroha Ryokan is a larger ryokan (85) rooms conveniently located just a few steps from the Sanjo-Keihan subway station. While the building is a little dated - it looks like it is from the 1970s - everything was clean and well kept. Two of us were comfortable in an 8 Tatani-mat room, which included a private bathroom and a small refrigerator, as well as a small sitting area with a view of the street and a small garden below. Our room looked just like the one in the photo, which I took from their web page.
The room charge included a full breakfast and access to the public bath facility. Service in the lobby was helpful and friendly, and there is one computer available for free Internet access.
Directions: Turn right as from Sanjo-Keihan subway station exit #2. Cross the street and it is justs a few steps away.
Japanese Style Inn
Although Hotel Iroha is not a new hotel, my stay there was fantastic. Service was good and most importantly, it is centrally located. There is also a hot bath.
Hotel Iroha is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Thanks to Colleen Colleen69) who recommended this place to me.

Iroha Ryokan or Gion Fukuzumi
We are a family of four travelling to Japan to visit our son who is working in Oita. While there we plan to spend about a week in Kyoto and Nara. I am currently looking for accommodation and like the look of both Iroha and Gion Fukuzumi as I would prefer this area of Kyoto. Has anyone stayed at either of these and could recommend/advise?
RE: Iroha Ryokan or Gion Fukuzumi
Kyoto is incredible -- it's fascinating and fun.
I stayed in a western style hotel in Pontocho, though I prefer a ryokan. You can't go wrong with either ryokan. You'll have a great time, I am envious!
RE: Iroha Ryokan or Gion Fukuzumi
I am an American English teacher living in Innoshima. I have been to Kyoto many times and everytime I go, I always stay at the Motonago Ryokan. It is a traditional ryokan set within a house that dates back 100 years and tucked away on a quiet little street in the heart of Kyoto. It is absolutely charming and the staff are very friendly and familiar with foreigners. It is very convenient, being only a short walk to Gion and all the major temples. As, accommodation in Japan goes, especially Kyoto, it is quite reasonably priced for the quality of service and convenience. I would highly recommend this ryokan for the best experience of traditional Japanese-style accommodation.
Have a great vacation! You'll love Kyoto, don't miss Nara either. While not as grandiose as Kyoto, I find Nara less hectic and overflowing with charm.
