Good location and a comfortable stay”

near fushimi-inari station, come out the gantry and turn right, you will then see lawson, turn right and go straight, you will see koto inn on your left. just be very cautious as there is another station named inari, we checked with the local ppl, he is the driver of the train at Kyoto station, he told us no need to change the train and it is 2 stations away. we ended up at inari without knowing because we show him "fushimi-inari" yet still can get wrong. end up pay extra and walk 1 big round with luggage is no joke at all. if u alight at inari station, then u should turn left then walk till a junction turn left again, and go to the hotel using Google map. very close by inari shrine, walking distance since it is right opposite of inari station. We did not interact much with the owner as we are too tired with the walk but they seems very friendly and kids love this hotel so much that they request to stay more days, free small little candy up to 100yen each. the cons is you have to get ready to carry the luggage up the stairs, we stayed at 2nd floor, the owner's son (I believe) is very helpful to help us carry the luggage. we really enjoy staying at this place, feel so like at home and amongst all 3 diff hotel that we stayed, this Koto inn's bed was the most comfortable bed. all other friends commended the same.

More than expectation”

We were so surprised when seeing the guesthouse. It's overexpected. The staff is very friendly, speaks English fluently and supports us so so well. The room is comfortable. It's worth. Facilities are good for a guesthouse. The location is quite close to the Fushini Iniari Shrine, very convient if you want to visit this attraction early in the morning when there is not much crowded and you can take nice shoots there. Not close to the centre, but hire a bicycle and explore Kyoto. It's a good experience :) Will definitely recommend my friends! Thanks Stay Inn Koto for treating us good time in Kyoto:)

This place is close to Fushimi Inari Station and don’t use Google maps when finding the place”

Once you step out of Fushimi Inari Station, turn right and walk straight ahead until you see Lawson. Once you see Lawson, cross the street and turn right then walk straight ahead. You should be able to see on your left a cake shop, a beauty shop then next to it is Stay Inn Koto. You will know that it’s already the Inn if you see Shiba dog stuff toy in their display and some bikes parked on the side. Opposite Stay Inn Koto is I think a church. Please do not use google maps as you will get lost just like what happened to us. Overall our stay is really nice and they have big bathrooms with shampoo, body wash and extra towels aside from the ones you have in the rooom and you can request for more if needed. Good exercise as well to climb their stairs but worth the view too. They also provide snacks that you can eat and you can get up until 100JPY worth of snacks. You need to pay for detergent if you need to do laundry. They also provide microwave, ref on each floor and for utensils you need to go to the main floor kitchen to get it. If your check in time is before 11, you can go to the backside entrance by turning left then you can leave your things while exploring the area.

Best Place so far :)”

I stayed here two nights and I had a great time. Very good for socializing and the guys working there were super nice, friendly and helpful and I had a lot of good laughs with them and the other guests. If I come back to Kyoto I would definitely stay again. It's very close to Fushimi Inari and Inari Station and to the Inari Shrine. The place was clean and they have two kitchens. Just one request: change your name on the booking site ;) there is another "KOTO Guesthouse" - I was waiting a long time at the wrong place because I searched it over online maps ... so take care you get to the right place (or maybe I'm just dumb ^-^). You can leave your luggage before or after check in and they have maps available at the hostel. Locker in the room comes with a padlock, and we also had a table in there which was very convenient. Thanks for the good time :)

Planning to stay here again!”

The address is different than the one google maps gives so be careful! The guesthouse is actually less than 5 minute walk from the Fushimi-Inari Station. We were pleasantly surprised when we came to the right address and it was so close to the station. The house itself is very clean and organized. We had the Japanese style double room on the first floor which was connected to an outside terrace. We slept on mats on the floor and it was really comfortable. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated, and the owner even provided drinks for us in the room. Also, she provided a booklet of useful Japanese phrases, directions to groceries, etc. The toilet was One Piece themed which was very cute! The bathroom was large and very clean. Not to mention, the guesthouse is literally less than 10 min walk from the Fushimi-Inari Shrine itself, which was great, and surrounded by lots of cafes and restaurants, etc. Overall, when I return to Kyoto again, I will definitely book this place again.

Simple, clean, great staff. Make sure you use this address only: 1-6, Suzutsukacho, South Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan 612 0011. Otherwise you will be walking an extra 20 minutes over to a back alley guesthouse also called KOTA. The guesthouse KOTA with dorms and Japanese rooms on this site that you want to book is a 2 minute walk from the Fushimi Inari temple bus stop on a main street.

Convenient location with train stations (JR & Keihan) and local bus stations too. 5mins walking distance to Fushimi Inari Shrine & you would want to get there early before the crowds go. Many nice food shops around to & a big LIFE supermarket nearby. There’s also a direct bus 105 to the airport limousine bus stop too. Clean place. Have all the necessary facilities needed (room with aircon, thick duvet, personal lockers, bath essentials, adapters & charging cables, fully equipped kitchens) I would definitely go back here again & recommend to all my family & friends who are visiting Kyoto

This is probably one of the best places to stay in Kyoto. Aside from their proximity to the train stations, the staff are very accommodating and attentive to your needs. The house is well-equipped with all you need and the floor I got assigned to just shares the bathroom with one other. Hence, there's not a lot of waiting time. They even have a kitchen where you can cook. The best part is the label/instructions they put on all equipment - making it very user-friendly especially to us who don't understand Japanese. Highly recommended place!
