The Hotel Monterey Kyoto is a lot like the city itself.  At first glance it’s a modern 16-story high rise hotel, but look at little closer and you’ll find traditional Japanese touches as well. With a great location right in the middle of the city, adjacent to the Kyoto Imperial Palace and within quick walking distance to two different subway lines, the Hotel Monterey Kyoto is a perfect home away from home for visitors looking for a western style hotel.

The 327 rooms feature a colorful and contemporary decor.  There are 96 single rooms, 174 twin rooms, and 39 double rooms, all with complimentary high-speed Internet access, in-room refrigerator, tea making facilities and work area. The bathrooms feature heated toilet seats and a full range of bath amenities.

Playing off the east-meets-west theme the hotel has two restaurants–ESCALE offering French cuisine and Zuien Tei for Japanese cuisine.

With over 5,902 sq. feet of function space, and 4 different types of private event rooms, the Hotel Monterey Kyoto is a favorite venue for business functions, celebrations and weddings. The hotel even has its own beautiful wedding chapel.
