Accor has expanded its portfolio of hotels in
Japan with the opening of the MGallery Kyoto Yura Hotel.
Located within walking distance of the
144-room hotel are Kyoto’s
most scenic spots that include the famed geisha district of Gion,
Yasaka Shinto Shrine and downtown district of Kawaramachi. The
hotel is also perfectly located for guests to easily enjoy an evening walk or morning run
along the picturesque Kamo River.
“The opening of
Kyoto Yura Hotel MGallery strengthens our luxury footprint in
Japan following the successful launch of Pullman Tokyo Tamachi
last year. Home to 17 stunning UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Kyoto
is considered the heart and soul of traditional Japan. Famed for
its great temples, beautiful gardens and intricate works of art,
the place offers the touch of a modern city as well as the
historical treasure,” said Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Office
at Accor for Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and Maldives.
The General Manager of Kyoto Yura Hotel MGallery
is Kazunori Tanaka.
