What kind of luxury hotel is Park Hyatt Kyoto?
The hotel opened in Oct 2019. If you are looking for a 5-star luxury hotel with a great location in the heart of Kyoto, then this is the most perfect place for you. There is a five-star Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto and a four-star Hyatt Regency Kyoto Hotel nearby, but the location of Park Hyatt Kyoto is much more spectacular.
This is probably the only hotel where you can enjoy the Yasaka Tower glowing in the morning and evening sun from the comfort of your elegant room. There’s nothing like spending time looking at the amazing view overlooking the city of Kyoto.
If you love the atmosphere of Kyoto and get a thrill from walking through the streets of old Japan, this is the perfect hotel for you. Alternatively, if you’ve already been to Kyoto a few times and want to stay in a 5-star hotel this time and enjoy the streets of the ancient city while strolling around at your leisure, this is the place for you.
While staying here, you won’t need to take a train or bus here and there to go sightseeing. There are many wonderful temples and gardens to visit within walking distance. It is also close to the Gion area, which is dotted with famous restaurants.
On the other hand, if you want to enjoy a wonderful gym, pool, and hot springs, etc., during your stay in Kyoto, I would rather recommend Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto, The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto, or HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO, a Luxury Collection Hotel & Spa, which have great amenities. Unfortunately, Park Hyatt Kyoto has a only small gym, saunas, and baths on 3F. It’s located next to an area designated as a World Heritage Site, so it is probably restricted by the Building Standards Law.

Is the location easy to access?
If you take a taxi from Kyoto Station, it’s easy. It takes 15min and costs around JPY1,500.
The closest stations are Gion Shijo Station or Kiyomizu Gojo Station. It will take you 15 to 20 minutes to walk from either station. If you have a lot of luggage or are visiting Kyoto for the first time, you may want to take a cab from Kyoto station.
Then there is a Hyatt Regency Kyoto Hotel nearby, so you might want to show the taxi drivers a map to avoid mistakes. Alternatively, show the address and TEL No. in the below Japanese as they can enter the phone number into the car navigation system to confirm the destination.

Rooms I would recommend?
If you are going to stay here, I would recommend a room with views of Yasaka Tower and Kyoto old town. I wouldn’t recommend others. From the large window of the room, the city of Kyoto spreads out like a picture. The Yasaka Tower, symbolizing the city of Kyoto, and its traditional roof tiles are very impressive.
How about toiletries & in-room amenities?
All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, bathrobes, a coffee machine with capsules, welcome fruit, and a green tea set. There were SANTAL 33 bath amenities in the bathroom. You can also request skincare products, pajamas, baby lotion, baby shampoo, etc. for free. A Blu-ray player, a DVD player, and a BOSE speaker were placed. Room service is available for 24H. Free Wifi reception was good in the building. Turn-down service is available.
Then this is child-friendly. Staff provides amenities, baby cribs, and yukatas for small children if you request in advance. *King, Twin, Garden Terrace King, Garden Terrace Twin, View King, and View Twin are rooms that can sleep with children.

How about In-house Facilities?
There is a spa treatment shop. You need to make an appointment in advance if you receive a spa treatment. It’s open between 10:00 and 18:00
Then the hotel is a perfect universal design. Wheelchairs are available for borrowing. If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.

How about meals?
There are Italian, Teppanyaki, and Japanese restaurants in the hotel.
For breakfast, you can choose Western or Japanese cuisine. If you love Japanese food, I would recommend choosing Japanese breakfast. I think the Japanese food here is probably the best in Japan. Each dish is delicately seasoned and full of flavor. It is truly a breakfast prepared by a first-class chef. *Japanese breakfast is available in limited numbers, so please request in advance. Also, let the staff know what time you want to have breakfast.
Then the Italian restaurant called Kyoto bistro with reasonable prices and a cozy ambiance. I had the beef curry for lunch, and it was good.
Then we had dinner at the hotel’s Teppan-yaki restaurant, which is a French-based Teppan-yaki restaurant, and it was very tasty. You can also enjoy the view of Yasaka Tower and Kyoto Tower from the restaurant.
The staff, the building, the room facilities, and the location, was one of the best hotels I have ever experienced. I liked the room so much that I didn’t feel like going out anywhere, but instead spent the rest of the day looking out the window at the city of Kyoto. The view of Yasaka Tower from my room was so extravagant that words cannot describe it. I hope that one day I will be able to see this view again.
