What kind of boutique hotel is Villa Sanjomuromachi KYOTO?
This is like a hideaway for adults. There are only 12 rooms. We didn’t see other guests during our stay. Absolutely the property completely emphasizes private experiences for each guest. If you are looking for sophisticated boutique hotels in Kyoto, I would recommend it. Perhaps, if this is your first visit to Kyoto, you should stay here. The location is convenient when you go sightseeing and great access to public transportation. On the other hand, if you are a connoisseur of Kyoto, I wouldn’t recommend it as the location is not very much Kyoto. I would rather recommend staying in the Higashiyama area. The exterior of the building is like an apartment but once we entered the property, we felt relaxed. The boutique hotel would be great for solo travelers, couples, business person, or small groups. The property with a relaxed environment that women can feel comfortable staying even alone.
Is the location easy to access?
Yes, very easy. The location is in the center of Kyoto city. The hotel is near Karasuma Oike Station, just a 3min-walk. Alternatively, it takes 15min from Kyoto Station by Taxi. It costs around 1,500JPY. Please note that most of the TAXI drivers wouldn’t know the property. You might want to show a map where it’s located.
The rooms I would recommend?
If you are going to stay here, I would recommend west-facing deluxe rooms. You can see quaint white walls of traditional warehouses from the spacious window while chilling out at the room. Then facilities tend to be the latest. Everything, such as decorations, furniture, and interior, etc., is stylish. The room is spacious, functional, and user-friendly. The housekeeping was excellent.
How about toiletries & in-room amenities?
All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, pajamas, bathrobes, a green tea set, bottled water, coffee bags, and tea bags, etc. There are PROVINSCIA amenities in the bathroom. Also, iPads, DVD players, air cleaners, cribs, and umbrellas, etc., are available for borrowing. The wifi reception was great in the property.
How about In-house Facilities?
The property is almost universal design. If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance. Then there is a small cozy lobby lounge on 1F. You can order wine, beer, Japanese sake, coffee, and tea, etc. There is no communal bath, no spa, no swimming pool, and no gym in-house.
How about meals?
The food experience for breakfast was good. The portion tends to be small. You can choose either Western or Japanese cuisine. Also, you can choose either your room or the lobby lounge for breakfast. Room service is available only for breakfast. Alternatively, you can go out for meals. There are many nice restaurants around the property. There is a convenience store nearby. Most of the restaurants in Kyoto city would be open from 11:00 AM. The staff is helpful, attentive, and informative. If this is your first visit to Kyoto, you may want to ask the staff about the recommended spots, restaurants, cafes, etc.
Overall, the price range would be reasonable. The hotel would be perfect if you are looking for modern boutique hotels in Kyoto. The atmosphere around the property is not very much Kyoto, though. We always stay around the Higashiyama area because the atmosphere is very much Kyoto, but for this trip, we didn’t have enough time to move around so we chose one of the conveniently located properties in downtown Kyoto. At last, if you stay here, I would recommend joining Kyo Yuzen Workshops after breakfast which is the traditional dyeing technique of Kyoto. The location of the shop is nearby. It just takes 10min on foot. We enjoyed it so much more than we expected. Have a nice trip! Welcome to receive any questions about Villa Sanjomuromachi KYOTO from the below space.
