The hotel is well situated just south of the Imperial Palace along a street of boutique and neighbourhood shops and restaurants, about 20 minutes north of the railway station. Everything about the hotel is stylish, some parts light and airy and some parts a little dim. The restaurant food is beautifully presented and the roof terrace bar a pleasant place... More

A Boutique hotel with around 13 rooms if I am not mistaken the number of rooms. Every room has their own interior and style. Very clean and quiet hotel. Staff are helpful and very friendly too and the amenities they provide are in super good quality!

Good restaurants in the street and an amazing patisserie for breakfast a few blocks down also! This hotel has 12 rooms all individual in their design and decorating by different ".... More

Stayed there for 4 nights in two different rooms. Both different design, both excellent. Conveniently located close to Teramachi market and behind the Imperial Palace. Walking distance from the Centre. Extra friendly staff, very good service. Fantastic breakfasts. Lovely champagne bar on 5th floor. Highly recommended.

We spent 4 nights in room 102 and absolutely loved everything about this hotel. Room was very large and comfortable, free wifi, nespresso coffee machine, Ippodo tea and great bath products all unexpected pluses. We had complementary use of the roof bar between 15:00 and 19:00 every day: whilst drinks were free, I would have happily paid for them, given... More

Staying in City Center

Neighborhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
