Luxury Hotels and Ryokans for Solo Travelers

TOP5  Hotels and Ryokans for Solo Travelers

If you are a solo traveler, I would recommend staying in the Higashiyama area.  Because there are many attractive spots within walking distance.  Then if you don’t have enough time, you should stay near Kyoto Station.  When I travel alone in Kyoto, I always stay at Yasaka Yutone Kyokoyado or Muromachi Yutone Kyokoyado.  It would be not easy to book the rooms during the spring and fall seasons, though.  In particular, two of them are very cozy for solo travelers and all staff is so friendly.
