SAKURA TERRACE THE GALLERY hotel in Kyoto

The atmosphere of this hotel is not traditional Japanese or Kyoto style. But it is an open-air concept, nice and cozy with some modern arts and materials from wood, stone, and metal.

It depends on season, but 70% to 80% of the guests are foreign travellers (most of them are individual travellers because this hotel doesn't accept a gourp tour).

So, almost of all staffs speak fluently English. You won't have any problem with check-in, check-out, and getting information about Kyoto.
