A Space for Temporary Kyoto Residents to Call Home

Long-Term Stays With All the Amenities of Home

With 120 rooms on site, The Palace Side Hotel caters primarily to travelers who intend to call Kyoto home for a long period of time. The hotel stands near the Kyoto Imperial Palace and is within walking distance of many subway stops. Travelers who want to immerse themselves in traditional Kyoto will feel right at home at this luxurious hotel.

Catering to long-term guests, The Palace Side Hotel offers discounts based on the length of stay. Each of the rooms on site offers a number of amenities that a traveler would expect to receive at home, including free access to wireless Internet and tea service. Though single rooms are small, The Palace Side Hotel offers a number of double rooms with over 200 square feet of floor space. Certain deluxe rooms offer a kitchenette in room, making the hotel room a true home for the guest who plans on staying a while in Kyoto.

Surrounded by Kyoto's Historical Heritage

Perhaps the biggest attraction of The Palace Side Hotel is the Kyoto Imperial Palace. This structure is one of the most opulent of Feudal Japan's palaces, and guests can tour the grounds and two palaces on site just by walking outside the hotel doors. In addition, the hotel is central to over a dozen historical sites, shrines, temples, and World Heritage Sites — the only barriers to adventure here are the limits of a traveler's imagination!

For those who want to explore every inch of Kyoto, the hotel is four blocks away from Marutamachi Station, offering access to the entire city.

Even the most excited travelers need some down time. This is where The Palace Side Hotel shines, offering travelers everything they need to enjoy their stay. The Café Fermata faces Kyoto Imperial Palace Park and offers service for all three meals of the day at an affordable price. Travelers are also welcome to use the Compass Community Room, featuring a community kitchen, library, and meeting rooms. And when deep relaxation calls, guests can make a reservation at Sabai, the traditional Thai massage parlor located at the hotel. 

The Bottom Line

Travelers who plan on staying in Kyoto for a while — be it three weeks or three months — will feel right at home at The Palace Side Hotel. Travelers will enjoy the central location and the balance between a traditional hotel environment and the comforts of a long-term residence.
