Top tips for finding the perfect Kyoto hotel

To enjoy some of the local architecture and see impressive views of the city, consider booking a hotel near Kiyomizu-dera, a famous Buddhist temple that is located on Mount Otowa and provides a breath-taking vantage point of the surrounding area. The Imano Kyoto Kiyomizu Hostel is a budget-friendly hotel that is only a 5-minute drive from the temple, while the Saka Hotel is another great, close by choice.
The Gion neighbourhood is famous for being Kyoto’s geisha district, making it a popular destination for visitors who would like to experience the city’s culture and history. If you would like to be within walking distance of this area and its attractions, select a hotel nearby, such as the Hotel Ethnography that is located right in the heart of the neighbourhood.
If you want to explore some of the city’s natural scenery, choose a hotel near Arashiyama, such as the Grand West, a 3-star accommodation with Wi-Fi, free parking and included breakfast. Arashiyama is a large bamboo forest that contains many types of wildlife and water vistas, making it a lush and scenic area to explore.
For visitors who are food enthusiasts, pick a hotel next to the Nishiki Market, a historic marketplace that is over 400 years old and packed with vendors selling a variety of produce, meats, and ready-to-eat items. The Super Hotel Shijyo Kawaramachi is an affordable choice that is only a 3-minute walk from the market and a 12-minute walk from the Yasaka Shrine.
If you’re travelling to Kyoto with your family, select a hotel near the Toei Kyoto Studio Park, a theme park that contains a full-scale replica of an Edo-period village and a variety of games and activities related to this era. The Rhino Hotel is a straightforward choice that is less than a 3-minute drive from the park and only a 4-minute walk fromwal to the Saiin train station.
