The Junei Hotel Kyoto Imperial Palace West / Kyoto Kawaramachi・Karasumaru・Omiya 67


Kyoto Gyoen is where the imperial family was based during the Heian to Meiji eras. 
The Junei Hotel is located immediately west of Kyoto Gyoen. 

There are only 8 guest rooms at the hotel, with each room measuring 50 square meters. 
The interior exhibits an upscale Japanese design sensibility and each room is adorned with various artwork showcasing Kyoto craftsmanship, a Serta bed, and a Kyoto-made bed throw. The top notch amenities are sure to provide a luxurious experience for our guests. 

All rooms are equipped with bath tubs made from the renowned Shigarayaki ceramic. 
The ceramic has an exceptional touch and is a one-off, custom-made piece. To top it off, the baths are filled with concentrated hydrogen water, which is said to have benefits for the skin. We recommend guests to take a long, relaxing bath in the curated space. 

Various other details to comfort our guests are dispersed throughout the hotel: 
aromas, healing music, and fresh tatami which emanates a unique green fragrance. 
Various provisions showcasing Kyoto cuisine will invigorate your senses. Uji tea, Japanese sweets from venerable establishments, and a catered Kyoto-style breakfast are served to our guests. 

If you're looking to fully immerse yourself, we recommend participating in activities unique to Kyoto, such as wearing kimono and creating paper crafts. A special plan to invite maiko is also available. This is a rare opportunity, since traditional tea houses typically forbid first-time customers. 

The wonderful experience begins as soon as guests arrive at the hotel. We welcome visitors to stay at our hotel where you can experience Kyoto through the five senses.

The bath was big and nice, but I was disappointed that my hair was floating when I stored the hot water. It was a shame that there was no hot water though the spout was on the top. I did not understand the hydrogen bath effect well. As price is moderate, we think that cospa is bad. The staff was very kind and helped me with my lost items quickly. Thank you very much.
