Hotel Kanra Kyoto
Located less than a mile from Kyoto Station and less than five minutes from Gojo Station, this hotel is also within walking distance of the famous Higashihonganji Temple. It is convenient because public transportation to any part of the city leaves right from that stop.
The structure consists of two interconnected buildings that were once a school. The wide lobby is tiled in style, and there’s a fancy café selling fine handcrafted goods. The zen rocks and plant art in the halls are works of art.
Each room’s entrance is adorned with a wooden paneled relief wall, paper lantern, and granite step for maximum wow impact. There are only four treatment rooms in the spa, but they are all exquisitely designed around natural elements like “rock,” “dirt,” “wood,” and “paper.“
Both the foyer and the cafe/bar occupy the spacious ground floor. Coffee, cocktails, and Japanese sweets are all on the menu. In addition to serving as a cafe, this establishment also functions as a shop offering exquisite Japanese handicrafts. Child-sized amenities, suites, and twin rooms are also available for families.
