Buyer: MGallery Kyoto Yura Hotel has debuted in the country’s ancient capital, with interiors blending elements reminiscent of the legendary Samurai era.
The hotel pays homage to the traditions of Kyoto through art and heritage – a key consideration for all MGallery Hotels. Boasting rooms with contemporary classical design, local fabric Nishijin-ori can be found in each of its guest rooms celebrating a weaving heritage dating back over 1,200 years, while the seating area is furnished with traditional tatami mats.
Located within walking distance of the hotel are Kyoto’s most scenic spots that include the famed geisha district of Gion, Yasaka Shinto Shrine and downtown district of Kawaramachi.
“The heart and soul of traditional Japan”
“The opening of Kyoto Yura Hotel MGallery strengthens our luxury footprint in Japan following the successful launch of Pullman Tokyo Tamachi last year.
“Home to 17 stunning UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Kyoto is considered the heart and soul of traditional Japan. Famed for its great temples, beautiful gardens and intricate works of art, the place offers the touch of a modern city as well as the historical treasure,” said Patrick Basset, COO at Accor for Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives.
MGallery Kyoto Yura Hotel will be the first of its kind in Japan, joining the collection of 101 storied boutique hotels around the world in addition to 48 others under development.
Each hotel is inspiring, enhances local discovery; hotels are known to be highly individual ensuring guests are enriched with delightful and unique experiences. MGallery will expand its collection with captivating new hotels in the coming months including MGallery Cannes and Hong Kong.
THPT Comment: Good to see the Japanese tradition being retained in this new MGallery hotel.
