Kyoto Hyatt opens its doors

Hyatt Hotels & Resorts has opened the Hyatt Regency Kyoto. The 189-room hotel is conveniently located in Higashiyama Shichijo district in the traditional cultural heart of Kyoto, a neighbourhood with the Sanjusangendo Temple, the Kyoto National Museum and many temples and landmarks. The hotel is just a few minutes drive from the Japan Railway Kyoto Station.

Designed by Super Potato, a well-known interior design firm in Japan, Hyatt Regency Kyoto blends contemporary Japanese style with traditional design elements. Elegant bamboo trees provide a dignified entrance, leading to a mature, beautifully maintained Japanese garden, with a waterfall and pond, dating back 850 years to the reign of Emperor Goshirakawa (1155-1158AD).

Each of the 189 guestrooms offer a comfortable and relaxed environment, combining traditional Japanese aesthetics with modern facilities. Guestrooms are designed with a simple functional concept, using natural colours, white oak wood and Japanese kimono fabric. All rooms are equipped with flat-screen televisions and high-speed broadband Internet access.
