Good Value Meets Excellent Location in Central Kyoto

Traditional Comfort in a Busy Urban Setting

With nearly 200 rooms on site, the Urban Hotel Kyoto offers guests the traditional comfort of Japanese accommodations in a key location central to Kyoto's most popular attractions. The hotel is situated in the center of the Fushimi ward, and guests are delighted by the easy pedestrian access throughout the neighborhood, in addition to public transportation just outside the hotel doors. 

As is traditional with Japanese hotels, each guest room runs smaller than western hotel rooms. Single rooms sleep one in comfort, with less than 140 square feet of space. Travelers who want room to stretch out should consider upgrading to a full-sized double room, which offers up to 160 square feet of floor space. However, what rooms lack in space is gained in free amenities offered by the hotel. Every guest is welcome to use free wireless Internet access in every room, as well as cable television featuring English and Japanese television channels. 

Central Location for Travelers' Ultimate Convenience

Travelers who choose to stay at the Urban Hotel Kyoto will not be disappointed by the available facilities. The hotel offers two restaurants for guests' convenience. Lavender Tea Lounge specializes in European and western baked goods, in addition to coffee and tea service. The café is open until 11 p.m. nightly for those who have a late-night craving. Travelers who want a taste of traditional Japanese cuisine at breakfast and dinner should stop at the Kyo-Wasabi restaurant. At dinner, this popular eatery specializes in sushi rolls and shabu-shabu, a traditional soup made with beef, vegetables, and tofu. 

In addition to the on-site amenities, the Urban Hotel Kyoto is within short distance of many popular tourist destinations in Kyoto. Start your day by renting a bicycle from the hotel and exploring the Fushimi ward like a local. The Fushimi Inari Shrine and Sekihoji Temple are located two blocks away from the hotel. And those with a taste for sake will enjoy the Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum, located due south of the hotel. For those who want to see the entire city, the hotel stands within a five-minute walk of the Fukakusa subway station. 

The Bottom Line

Despite its small rooms, the Urban Hotel Kyoto offers guests from around the world all the comforts of home. Guests of this hotel give high marks for the convenient location and high-quality on-site dining facilities.

Expert Reviews
The 199-room, three-pearl Urban Hotel Kyoto is within walking distance of the famed Fushimi Inari-taisha shrine. This isn't the most central Kyoto hotel, though, and it feels fairly...
