Right in the heart of the downtown Kyoto shopping district, the Gracery is a well-run moderate hotel with small but comfortable rooms and everything you need for a short stay.
Divided into two buildings alongside the Shinkyogoku Shopping Arcade right in the heart of downtown Kyoto, this new hotel has small but efficient rooms, a friendly staff and touches of Japanese style in common areas. There’s a good on-site restaurant that serves a filling breakfast, either Western or Japanese. It’s a great way to start the day.
So, if you want to be right in the heart of the action and want a good value hotel, you won’t go wrong with this excellent little hotel. It’s recommended.
