The Tower View Rooms offer a spectacular panoramic view of the city, including Kyoto Tower—the landmark of Kyoto—located directly in front of Kyoto station. This unique setting allows guests to look out at the ridge lines of the five mountains in the distance. Whether in the morning, afternoon, or at night, the charming appearance of Kyoto is a superb sight to behold.
Following Granvia's concept of "The production of KYOTO's sensibility and the succession of the Wa identity" harbored since the company's founding, the interior design of the Tower View Rooms express the lingering charm and shape of the old capital.
The view from the window both offers guests the opportunity to encounter the Kyoto of yesteryear but also prepares them for the new excitements waiting to be discovered.
Enjoy a relaxing atmosphere accentuated by the view of historic Kyoto surrounded by mountains outside.
Each room includes a “tsukeshoin”, a common feature of traditional Japanese formal residential architecture. This recessed alcove also provides added functionality as an extension of the dining table.
The windows in Tower View rooms have been expanded to envelop the eaves of the ceiling. This creates a relaxing veranda-like space under the eaves for guests to sit and relax.
A soft, rustic fabric reminiscent of the kind often found in thatched huts is used to add another element of relaxation.
Enjoy the early morning view of the city below accented by the light and shadow created by the morning sun hitting the clustered roofs of buildings just outside the window.
Appreciate a fulfilling breakfast in the refreshing morning sun without needing to leave your room.
Tower View rooms offer a fantastic twilight view that can only be enjoyed for about 30 minutes after the sun sets. As the colorful sunset gives way to the growing dark, guests are treated to a magnificent transition of color in the skies above the city.
To enjoy the full splendor of this daily lightshow, return from sightseeing a little before sunset and relax until dinnertime.
The Choraku Suite concept room is based on the idea of a “hidden villa in the heart of Kyoto.” As the only room of its kind in the hotel, the Choraku Suite offers a commanding view of Kyoto and includes a private bath where guests can enjoy the city’s nightscape outside.
