In the heart of Kyoto, our hotel offers the perfect location for exploring the city.

The Kyoto Brighton Hotel is located in a quiet residential area, about a 5-minute walk from the Kyoto Imperial Palace, and is surrounded by historic shrines and temples, as well as many long-established shops that have supported Kyoto's food culture, such as Japanese sweets, soy sauce, miso, and sake.
The Kyoto Gyoen, where the capital once stood and is rich in nature, is just a short walk away.
Why not spend your time in a place where history and the present coexist, while experiencing the daily life of Kyoto?
