Profile: Nakagyo Ward

Profile: Nakagyo Ward

Steeped in history, Nakagyo Ward is in the center of downtown Kyoto, and features some of the city’s most imposing buildings. In particular, don’t miss the 16th-century Nijo Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site whose impressive fortifications give way to stunning painted chambers complete with “nightingale floors”, which squeak when walked on to warn of intruders.

Nakagyo Ward is also home to the quaint Pontocho area, known for its narrow, lantern-lit alleys crowded with cozy wood-paneled bars and the city’s last remaining traditional tea houses, where you may even catch sight of an authentic Japanese geisha.

    Very spacious and clean room. Staff was friendly and tried to help whenever they could. The only drawback was that it was some distance from the nearest train station so we had to walk a fair bit with the luggage.

    Verified Expedia guest review

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    In mid-November, we originally stayed 5 nights and we liked Kyoto and this hotel so much that we returned at the end of our Japan trip and stayed two more. The hotel is modern, beautifully appointed with exquisite lacquer elevator doors, tables and display pieces. It is located in a safe and quiet neighbourhood - 5 minutes walking distance to Nijo-Jo Castle, subways and buses. Both of our rooms were immaculate with fast wi-if and cozy duvets. But what made this hotel a stand-out was Sam, the manager, and all of the other staff, who were exceptionally helpful. We especially appreciated Sam’s help suggesting local restaurants to try out, and he would even make the reservation. It took the guess work out of where to have authentic Japanese meals in Kyoto. He even plotted our bus routes for us, marking the stops on city maps. Plus, he arranged for our luggage to be sent to our next hotel in Osaka and later to Tokyo (an essential service if you are traveling by train). A highly memorable stay in a modern hotel with courteous, helpful and knowledge staff. We have no hesitation if recommending this hotel to anyone.

    My wife and I stayed for four days at this property as part of a Japan vacation, and we were delighted with our experience. The room was pleasant and peaceful, and the location was quite convenient to the Nijo Castle and nearby bus routes (and a 10-minute walk from the subway). The best thing about this location, though, was the staff. They were incredibly friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for any better attention! One piece of feedback for the management: as this is primarily a vacation destination, I would suggest a later checkout time of 11 am instead of 10 am.
