5-Star Luxury Hotels

TOP5 5-Star Luxury Hotels in Kyoto

If you want to walk around Kyoto like a samurai whenever you want, Park Hyatt Kyoto or Luxury hotel SOWAKA is the best choice for you. Luxury Hotel SOWAKA is a small ryokan *Japanese inn and is not a 5-star hotel, but it is well worth it. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes ryokan.

Then If you have already visited Kyoto, then Suiran, a Luxury Collection Hotel Kyoto is for you. Staying in Arashiyama Area is truly a luxury. Alternatively, if you are staying in Kyoto for a week, you may want to stay in Arashiyama for a day. On the other hand, if this is your first visit to Kyoto and you are planning to do a lot of sightseeing, this is not the place for you.

Then HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO, a Luxury Collection Hotel & Spa, or The Ritz Carlton Kyoto is the best choice for those who want to spend less time sightseeing in Kyoto and more time in the hotel, relaxing in an elegant space and enjoying the pool, gym, and spa treatment service, etc. *Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto is a 5-star hotel in Kyoto, but I was not impressed with it, so I left it off this list.
