The Hyatt Regency Kyoto offers excellent, spacious rooms, great on-site restaurants, attentive and polished service and a convenient location. It’s a top choice for a relaxing stay in Kyoto. It’s highly recommended.
While other hotels in Kyoto might claim slightly more convenient locations, like the Kyoto Hotel Okura or the Westin Miyako Hotel, no hotel in Kyoto offers the service, the décor, the stylish rooms or the overall professionalism of the Hyatt. It’s for this reason that the best and the brightest are to be found here.
With a spacious breakfast area serving food guaranteed to delight Western palates, a brilliant Italian restaurant, a fine sushi bar and one of the most interestingly designed bars in town, not to mention beautiful guest rooms, the Hyatt just nails it. Sure, it’s a little out of the way on Shichijo-dori, but you’re only 20 minutes’ walk from Kyoto Station or Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and a taxi will get you just about anywhere in town in 15 minutes or less.
