Hotel The Celestine Kyoto Gion

Quiet beauty and tea in the heart of the city

With its dashing façade of crisp colours and handsome window blinds, the Kyoto Gion cannot be missed from where it sits in the city’s Higashiyama district. This pad is a great starting point from which to see the city’s revered sights, such as the Kamo River, Kiyomizu-dera temple and Kyoto’s national museum. Inside, its design infuses traditional Japanese architecture with modern-day functionality. One accommodation acts as a tea room, with local blends served in pottery cups. Its eatery, Yasaka Endo, provides a buffet breakfast and tempura, along with maiko dancing. For the health-conscious, the large communal bath and Kyoto-inspired garden should suffice.
