Enjoying an enviable address in the heart of downtown Kyoto, the Nagomi-tei branch of the reliable Hotel Vista brand is a solid choice for any traveller. Being less than 10-minutes walk from the tastes and smells of Nishiki Market, as well as the subway stops on Karasuma Street, the whole city is readily accessible from here. Plenty of shopping, dining and nightlife lies on your doorstep, but the rest of Kyoto is easily within reach too.
The property itself is spotlessly clean, with welcoming staff to make sure your stay is an enjoyable one. Despite being an affordable option, this hotel is certainly not a boring budget choice. The decor in the lobby and the outside of the hotel are in keeping with the subtle, understated beauty of traditional Kyoto architecture. For the 21st century traveller, a free smartphone can be borrowed to help you find your way around the busy city.
If you happen to be here in July for the Gion Matsuri festival, you can even enjoy the parades as they go right past the front door – make sure you book early though!
