Here are four hotels in Kyoto that are recommended for their ladies’ plans.
1. Hotel Grand Bach Kyoto
Hotel Grand Bach Kyoto is a hotel that is situated in an ideal location at the heart of Kyoto, just a five-minute walk away from Kawaramachi Station. With its Joshi Tabi/Haha Musume Tabi plan for female pairs, including mother/daughter pairs, (starts at 6,730 JPY for twin) that is available until the end of March 2017, guests are given pouches with a traditional Japanese design that give off a high-class feeling as they are made from kimono fabric. They are also treated to a choice of a free Japanese breakfast, centering on Kyoto’s traditional home-cooked meals, or a free western breakfast. In the afternoon, the restaurant on the 2nd floor is turned into a lounge for the exclusive use of staying guests, where guests can happily partake of coffee and tea, and bite-sized ochazuke (tea poured over rice) for dinner. This hotel is also perfect as a base for sightseeing in Kyoto.
