THE THOUSAND KYOTO

 

If you are looking for stylish hotels near Kyoto Station, I would highly recommend this hotel.  Perhaps, if this is your first visit Kyoto, I really think you should stay here.  To be honest, I thought that the property would be like a typical chain business hotel.  Because it is rated 3 star hotel.  However, I was betrayed by the hotel, in a good sense.  Absolutory it would be one of the best in Kyoto.  It’s like you’re in another world.  This is like a contemporary art museum.  Everything, such as architecture, interior, furniture, and decorations, etc., is truly sophisticated.  This is a spectacular place to stay with attention to every detail.  The ambience is very unique in that it feels luxurious and down to earth at the same time.  The property would be great for couples, family, groups, solo travelers, and business persons, etc.  It completely emphasizes private experiences for each guest even though this is a big hotel with many rooms.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room with a terrace.  You can chill out at the terrace with a beer in hand after long day out.  That’s the precious time.  Most of rooms have no nice views.  It cannot be helped as the location is near the station.  Facilities are bland new as it opened on JAN, 2019.  The room is functional, user-friendly, and comfortable.  Wifi reception was excellent.  All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, samue outfits, bathrobes, English tea bags, an illy coffee machine, bottled water and a Japanese tea set.  Also you can complimentary request skincare products by iPad provided in each room.  DVD players, air cleaners, and voltage converters are available for borrowing.  Also baby baths, cribs, and bed guards are available for borrowing if you request in advance.  Room service is available from 6:00-26:00.  There is a convenience store within 5min walking.  Turn down service is available if you stay in Suite or Premier room.  You need to inform staff of a specific time you want to request when checking in.  Then the property is universal design.  There is a room for wheelchair users.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you take people with weak feet, you may want to inform staff of it in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.  Then there are a nice gym, bedrock baths, hot water baths and a sauna.  *A minimum age requirement of 16 applies.  All of them are available at JPY3,000.  You can complimentary use the gym only.  They are open from 7:00-22:00. Sportswear, running shoes, and yoga mat, etc., are available at JPY500, but availability and sizes may be limited.  You may want to bring your own.  *If you have tattoos, you wouldn’t be able to use the spa area only.  Then there are wonderful Italian, Japanese restaurants and a café & bar in-house.  If you are a gourmet, I would highly recommend having meals at the Italian restaurant.  Each dish was very fresh, exquisite, and well presented.   Also you can choose either Japanese cuisine, Italian buffet or room service for breakfast.  We fully enjoyed the buffet.   The food presentation was not so quite extensive, but each dish tends to be high standard.  Then all staff was excellent.  If this is your first visit Kyoto, you may want to ask hotel concierges about recommended spots as they are informative.  Overall, the hardware and the software would be clearly outstanding although the hotel just opened on JAN, 2019.  When we visit Kyoto, we always stay in Higashiyama area because the atmosphere is very much Kyoto, but there was not enough time for this trip so we booked this hotel.  It’s well worth staying here.  The location is just 5min walk from Kyoto Station.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about the property from the below space.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  **Check in and out times 15:00/12:00  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on Booking.com or Agoda
