Kyoto Yura Hotel - MGallery features a contemporary classic designed inspired by the local neighborhood of the Gion District. The interior design combines elements from Kyoto's traditional matchiya wooden houses and teahouses. One of the unique features, and perhaps one of the selling points, of the hotel is the indoor bamboo garden which spans the height of two floors.

Kyoto's local culture and rich history are also showcased in the hotel's interiors. The local Nishijin fabric, for example, is used as accent pieces in the hotel's guestrooms and public areas.

Kyoto is one of the ancient capitals of Japan, and this is interpreted in design by the use of Chinese jars, Persian carpet, and European furniture used to decorate the hotel's Living Room.

During my stay, my request for a late check-out was granted by the hotel. This gave extra time in the morning to explore Nishiki Market and try out some of the local delicacies of Kyoto. I also got to swing by a ramen place for lunch.
