Fujita Kanko Inc. opened Hotel Gracery Kyoto Sanjo South on May 1stin Kyoto, Japan, the country’s ancient capital, and a highly popular tourist destination with international visitors.
The hotel stands next to Hotel Gracery Kyoto Sanjo North, which the company opened in July 2016. Both moderately-priced hotels were constructed in adjacent lots, strategically complementing each other, and bringing the total number of rooms at the location to 225. All 97 rooms at Hotel Gracery Kyoto Sanjo North are double rooms while all 128 rooms at Hotel Gracery Kyoto Sanjo South are twin rooms. Guests can choose North or South based on their needs. Standard rates for double rooms start at 21,600 yen and 22,680 yen for twin rooms.
Centrally located in the Teramachi Kyogoku and Shin Kyogoku shopping arcades, covered historical streets lined with long-established family stores, both hotels provide an ideal base for visitors exploring Kyoto. They offer easy access to numerous historical monuments and tourist attractions, and are conveniently located a few subway stops from Kyoto JR station (approximately fifteen minutes by taxi), the main entry point to Kyoto.
The hotel emphasizes concierge service with designated staff who can provide local information and assist international visitors with various activities. Spacious guest rooms all have separate toilets/bathrooms for additional comfort, and the hotel’s restaurant, Bon Salute, serves a wide selection of buffet breakfast items prepared with fresh local ingredients.
Honoring Kyoto as the birthplace of Kabuki, the 500-year old Japanese theatre involving elaborate costumes, makeup, acting and dance, as well as Kyoto’s long history of tea ceremonies and heart-felt hospitality, two one-of-a-kind themed rooms, the Kabuki Room and Kyoto Room, add unique character to the hotel. A corridor connecting to the North hotel is also decorated with colorful paintings of Kabuki actors and traditional lanterns, transporting guests to the world of Kabuki.
