Fodor's Review

A fusion of ultramodern design with traditional Japanese style is what you'll find at this popular hotel above Kyoto Station. Spacious Western-style rooms have good amenities: broad desks, separate tea areas, and bathrooms with big soaking tubs. The Choriku suite comes recommended because of the exquisite view from the open-air veranda. A stroll between the hotel's north and south towers affords a great view from the brilliant glass walkway. The sky lounge lets you enjoy a fusion of French and Japanese cuisine and a panoramic view of the city. You'll find 15 other restaurants close at hand, including a branch of the famed Kitcho.
