Ace Hotel recently opened up reservations for its upcoming Kyoto, Japan location, which will officially open on April 16. The 213-room hotel was designed in partnership with renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma who is also notably the principal architect of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Stadium.

The building itself is largely inspired by Kyoto’s rich history, as it is both a partially new and partially historic structure. “I intended to design a cultural catalyst for various people to visit and create a seamless relationship with Kyoto’s community,” explains Kuma. In a previous life, the historic section of the building used to be the headquarters of Kyoto Central Telephone Company, originally designed by architect Tetsuro Yoshida.

Ace Hotel Kyoto will offer multiple courtyard with landscaped gardens, a gallery, event spaces, a cafe and three separate restaurants. Inside the hotel rooms, careful nods to Japanese culture and traditions were made, including the addition of Japanese soaking bathtubs and tatami mats. Throughout the hotel, original art by Samiro Yunoki will be on display alongside various collaborations with local artists.

“Kyoto has been a longstanding global hub that has provided inspiration for countless artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers and poets,” says Ace Hotel Group Partner and Chief Brand Officer, Kelly Sawdon. “Kyoto is a city that generates creativity and inspires travel, and we hope Ace will serve as a central gathering place for locals and travelers.”

Ace Hotel Kyoto is set to open prior to the Olympics on April 16. Reservations are now available for booking over on Ace Hotel’s website. High season rates begin at $400 USD per night.
