The Junei Hotel Kyoto Imperial Palace West / Kyoto Kawaramachi・Karasumaru・Omiya 34


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.

Read more 先日義父母と私たち家族で宿泊しました。全てにおいて満足でした。 こんな部屋に泊まったことない!と嬉しそうに話している義父母をみて、本当に良かったなぁと思いました。 スタッフの方も親切で、また朝ごはんも美味しかったです。 ホテルに入った瞬間いい匂いがして、癒されました!また機会があったら是非泊まりに行きたいです! ありがとうございました。

The other day I stayed with my father-in-law and our family. I was satisfied with everything. I have never stayed in such a room! Seeing my father-in-law talking happily, I thought it was really good. The staff were kind and breakfast was also delicious. The moment I entered the hotel I smelled good and healed! I would like to stay overnight if there is a chance! Thank you very much.

Read more お部屋やお風呂も広く、とてもよかったです。 記念の日に、おもてなしをしていただきありがとうございました。 とても楽しく過ごせました。 お祝いもしていただき嬉しかったです。 ただ気になる点が2つ。 ・Wi‐fiがとても不安定でしたので改善した方が良いかと思います。 ・引き出しにコンビニの袋が入っていました。前の人が入れたのかな?という感じでした。 今後も機会があればまた行きたいです。 ありがとうございました。

Room and bath were wide, it was very good. Thank you for your hospitality on the memorial day. I was able to spend very happy. It was a pleasure to have a celebration. There are only two points to worry about. · Since Wi - fi was very unstable, I think I should improve it. · There was a convenience store bag in the drawer. I wonder if the previous one got in? It was that kind of feeling. I would like to go there again if there is opportunity. Thank you very much.
