Japanese inn or modern hotel? Guests get to decide

In the heart of Kyoto, steps from a subway station and minutes from dining and entertainment options, the Village Kyoto offers an intriguing twist on the traditional vs. modern hotel debate. Rooms are designed with traditional Japanese tatami flooring and sofa beds with optional mattresses and Japanese futon bedding, allowing guests to enjoy the space in their own way. The Village Kyoto offers a complimentary bento breakfast, communal baths for men and women, business services and fixed-room rates, making it ideal for families and large groups.

Highlights
  • Excellent location near Kyoto Tower
  • New property with flexible room design
  • Complimentary bento breakfast
  • Business services available
Location

The Village Kyoto is located near the unique Costume Museum, a must-see for those interested in exploring the history of Japan in miniature. Since 1974, the museum has exhibited dolls dressed in the varied and beautiful garments worn throughout the history of Japan.

Rooms

The guest rooms at the Village Kyoto are decorated in a stylish fusion of traditional comfort and sleek modernity, featuring Japanese tatami flooring and sofa beds. In this configuration, guests can relax in a more open, inn-style space. However, the property also features optional mattresses and Japanese futon bedding, allowing for a "normal" hotel experience. Rooms feature large LCD televisions, microwaves, refrigerators and bidet toilets. Guests also receive traditional "samue" sleepwear -- loose-fitting kimono-style tops and trousers. Complimentary wired Internet access is available.

Features

While the Village Kyoto does not have an on-site restaurant, it does offer guests a complimentary bento (boxed) breakfast each morning that is delivered to the room. Guests can choose between three bento options: Japanese, Western and sushi. The property also features spacious, separate communal baths for men and women, a traditional Japanese staple used for relaxation.

last minute booking

We got a last minute booking at the Kyoto Village Hotel, close to Shijoomiya station. Very lucky - good location, helpful staff and comfortable room. Would recommend and would stay there again. We hired bicycles near the nearby food market, and found travelling around the city very easy.
