640–1 Shimogoryomae-cho, Kyoto, 604-0995, Japan

Its chic interiors have enabled this boutique hotel near the Imperial Palace to gain a foothold in this competitive market. Each suite is the unique creation of a different renowned local or international interior designer. The styles range from traditional, with sliding doors painted with gold leaf, to ultramodern, with everything in ethereal whites. In a popular one, diaphanous white curtains halo the walls and bed. If your suite isn't to your taste, if at all possible the staff will move you to one that is. The rooftop bar has fine city views, and you can dine under the stars in the courtyard.
