Fodor's Expert Review Grand Prince Hotel

Takaraga-ike, 1092-2 Hataedacho, Iwakura, Kyoto, Kyoto-fu, 606-8505, Japan

Directly across from the Kyoto International Conference Hall, nestled in a forest setting, the Grand Prince Hotel will make you feel like visiting royalty. Rooms are spacious, will views of lush greenery on both sides, some facing the nearby mountains and others the inner garden. Demonstrations of the tea ceremony take place in the teahouse beside the garden pond upon request. The chef of the French-themed Beaux Sejours restaurant is one of city's most talented practitioners. The Kokusai Kaikan subway station is a few minutes away by foot.
