This is arguably Kyoto’s coolest hotel, featuring Ace Hotel’s trademark retro style and creative artworks and sculptures throughout. There are 213 rooms, a 24-hour gym, garden courtyards, three restaurants, and the first Stumptown Coffee shop in Japan, all under one roof.
The hotel is housed within the former Kyoto Central Telephone Company, built by architect Tetsuro Yoshida in the 1920s. This is Ace Hotel’s first venture in Japan, which has been given a new lease of life by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and Los Angeles-based design studio Commune.
Ace Hotel is a stylish hotel located on Karasuma Street, in the heart of Kyoto.
