Kyoto art hotel; good value for money

Opened March 2015, the hotel Sakura Terrace The Gallery is set in a modern building with a fashionable, arty interior design. The hotel lends its name to the eclectic mix of modern art featured throughout the public spaces set alongside natural greenery, water sculptures and fire pits.

Located in the heart of Kyoto, JR Kyoto Station is a three minute walk from the hotel and the city's largest shopping district along Shijo Street is a 10 minute train ride. Kyoto Tower and the iconic Higashi Honganji temple are both easily walkable in 10 minutes.

Unusually, the hotel bedrooms are divided into two wings - the North and South, which are separated by a quiet road. The 220 rooms are quirky and compact but each comes with free WiFi, humidifier/air purifiers, mini fridges, tea & coffeemakers, as well as a desk and small sitting area.

Upgraded rooms add sofas and balconies while those on the rooftop include furnished terraces with city views. Private bathrooms come with a bathtub, shower, toilet and complimentary toiletries.

The onsite restaurant is a light, airy space which serves both Western and Japanese cuisine. Dinner is a particular highlight here with Wagyu beef, maguro sashimi, sukiyaki and soba noodles on the menu. The bar serves a good selection of drinks, including local sake and shochu, and there is also an interesting take out menu available for you to enjoy in your room or on the hotel patio.

The hotel features separate Japanese baths and saunas for ladies and gentlemen. Because of the design, a slight inconvenience is that the hotel facilities are located across each wing - so, for example, if your room is in the North Wing you will have to exit your building to access the public baths in the South Wing. There is a small gym onsite and self-service laundry. Free coffee and tea is available throughout the day in the Gallery Lounge; and you can enjoy one free drink per person, every night during your stay.

No doubt about it, Sakura Terrace The Gallery represents very good value for money if you are visiting Kyoto as a tourist. The rooms might be on the small side but the facilities and the location more than make up for this. But, if you're travelling as a family look elsewhere as the hotel does not accept children aged 12 and under.
