K, this Is something very Simple, but I can't Seem to get it...

(I don't Have A Kana or Kanji Set up onmy Key PC, 'O-negai Shimasu' bare with me, I write it in Romanji)

Okay, I think I know how to say this, but I'm not Shure:

"Anata wa Kyoto no (ni? e?) ikimashita ka"

<You went to Kyoto?>

Is that Right? And if It is, how could I add, <last year>?

Any help would help (a pun, I guess).

So that means that Kyonen (kyo meaning day?) least year? And e and ni mean to?

"Kyonen" means "last year" and "e" and "ni" are direction particles. However, the "kyo (去)" in "kyonen" has not the same meaning as "kyou (今日)" which means "today".
Be also aware of the fact that "ni" has many more functions than that of direction.
