Ace Hotel Kyoto

Last updated: 27 December, 2023

A Kyoto hangout for hipsters, this centrally-located hotel was designed by internationally acclaimed architect Kengo Kuma in collaboration with LA-based Commune Design. From the ultra-fashionable lounge and bar to the record players in guestrooms, the result is most definitely aimed at creatives rather than family holidays.

As well as being near the magnificent Nishiki food market, the Ace has a good arty location, with Kyoto Art Center and the Museum of Kyoto a short walk away. Although this is a busy part of the city, the free bicycle rentals make for a chilled way to explore central Kyoto’s nooks and crannies without having to brave the crowded buses.
