Factory to boutique hotel conversion

Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Shinmachi Bettei opened in 2014 and is a good example of how to convert an old factory into a modern hotel. In this case an historic former textile factory has been turned into a place of rest and relaxation whilst retaining many of its original period features.

From the outside, it looks more like a traditional ryokan, but on entering the spacious lobby with wooden floors and large glass windows overlooking a Japanese garden, you get to appreciate the impressive redesign.

Located north of central Kyoto in the quiet Nakgyo-ku area, you have to do a bit of travelling to see the main attractions but Shijo and Karasuma Stations are both within a 10 minute walk so access to the city is fairly easy. Nijo Castle is 1.2km away while Kyoto Imperial Palace, Higashi Honganji Temple, Gion Corner and Kyoto Tower are all around the 2km mark.

Like a lot of Kyoto hotels, the bedrooms are on the small side and be warned, some of them have frosted unopenable windows which limit views and hinder light - not ideal if you want some fresh air. However, they are clean and modern and free WiFi, mini fridges and tea & coffee making facilities come as standard.

Upgraded rooms offer living areas with sofas. Bathrooms come with tiled floors, shower/tub combos and generous complimentary toiletries.

Izama, the airy, polished restaurant, looks out over the Japanese garden and serves Kyoto specialties at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dishes are cooked with carefully selected local ingredients and locally grown vegetables. If you want to get out in the evening, there are several restaurants and wine bars nearby and its a pleasant area to explore.

One of the highlights at the hotel are the traditional Japanese communal baths, with artificially carbonated spring waters, which are separated into men's and women's. A coin operated laundry is available. Vending machines with both alcoholic and soft drinks are available on site.

The Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Shinmachi Bettei is a fusion of traditional Japanese design with modern twists and comforts and its well-priced for what you get. So if you're not too bothered about location, its certainly worth a second look.
