The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto

92 Editor Rating*
Scale of 90-100

Elegant hotel conveniently located on the banks of the Kamogawa River within walking distance of the Imperial Palace and the Gion geisha district. Discreet entry gate leads to a four-tiered waterfall cascade next to the small lobby. The 134 lodgings feature a minimalist contemporary décor, oak and bamboo furniture, floor-to-ceiling windows and marble baths with rainfall showers; rooms with tatami mats instead of traditional beds are available. Some suites include separate living areas and private balconies or terraces with Zen gardens. Mizuki serves multicourse kaiseki meals as well as sushi, tempura and teppanyaki dishes; La Locanda for Italian cuisine. ESPA spa with gym, seven treatment rooms and 65-foot pool.
