Noku Kyoto

Kyoto | First Class

Contemporary Japanese style, friendly service and its good location near many key sights make Noku Kyoto a great choice for anyone seeking a modern bolt hole in this ancient city. You’re close to Kyoto Imperial Palace and right next to a subway station, so transport links to other parts of Kyoto are on your doorstep.

The lobby’s blend of modern design and traditional Japanese arts sets the tone for the entire hotel. Here, you’re greeted by warm lighting, a Warhol-esque image of Japanese macaques, and ceilings inset with sections that resemble the rice paper screens in a traditional house.

Rooms are modern with a Japanese flavour, too. Each is spacious with a clean, minimal feel and streamlined furniture with a mid-century style. Bright, modern fabric on the headboards features images central to Japanese art - bamboo, cranes - and adds a pop of drama, but otherwise the spaces are a soothing vision of blonde wood, grey upholstery and white bedlinen. Many rooms have sofa beds or can accommodate three, making them a good option for families.

The mid-century-meets-Japanese look continues in the hotel’s café, where clean-lined furniture and parquet floors are the backdrop to Japanese and Western-style breakfasts and excellent coffee. There’s also a cosy, intimate bar which makes a great place for a relaxing drink at the end of the day.

We Say

A modern hotel that celebrates Kyoto’s cultural life in its design, and makes a great alternative to a western-style chain.
