Hyatt Regency Kyoto ハイアットリージェンシー京都
Class and convenience in Japan's ancient capital
The Hyatt Regency Kyoto somehow manages to be approximately 10 minutes from nearly everywhere visitors want to go, either on foot, by bike, by train, or by taxi. The original luxury hotel in Japan's second city, it was the only option for travelers for many years and went the extra mile to accommodate guests. Although in recent years other hotels have moved in, the Hyatt has maintained its high level of hospitality and appeal.
The rooms are comfortable and have a definite sense of place, relying on locally sourced textiles to add color to the light wood furniture. There are three excellent restaurants within, serving Italian, Japanese and grilled beef. But perhaps the most impressive aspect of the hotel is its superb breakfast buffet, offering up Western, Japanese, and Chinese favorites in a comfortable dining room just off the main lobby.
