Located in the historically and culturally rich Horikawa-Oike area nearby the Nijo-jo Castle World Heritage site is Mayu Grace Hotel, an apartment hotel in which guests are immersed in the experience of living in the area.

Mayu is the Japanese word for silk cocoons. Inspired by the traditions and creativity exemplified by Japan’s silk culture, and embodying the elegance and dignity of the word grace, Mayu Grace Hotel treats its guests to a luxurious lobby reminiscent of a painting in the Rinpa school style, guestrooms that are perfect for unwinding, and genuine hospitality by experienced staff.

We welcome you to enjoy a deeply relaxing stay surrounded by the gracefulness and character offered by Mayu Grace Hotel.

Concept

Like being enveloped in a soft cocoon,
in the heart of Kyoto, a city spun from history and culture.

A 5-minute walk to a World Heritage site

The hotel is in an excellent location, being just five minutes on foot to the Nijo-jo Castle World Heritage site, which is where rule over the Japanese empire was restored from the shogunate to the emperor in the late 19th century. The Horikawa area, where Mayu Grace Hotel sits, is a traditional center of culture and commerce that flourished with the development of Kyo-Yuzen silk dyeing. It is a highly convenient area, with many popular sightseeing spots and restaurants as well as great access to other key spots in the city, yet is marked by a serene atmosphere, with none of the noise and bustle of a metropolis.

Experience the traditional culture of the ancient capital

Mayu Grace Hotel is produced by Nishimura Kogei Dyeing Co., a Kyo-Yuzen silk dyeing house that has been in business for more than 110 years. Guests at the hotel are invited to try their hand at making traditional crafts at our sister facility Marumasu-Nishimuraya, in which there are workshops where guests can learn Kyo-Yuzen dyeing techniques using stencils and brushes, how to wrap furoshiki, which have become popular among the environmentally conscious, and how to carve their own chopsticks out of Kitayama sugi (a kind of cedarwood). *Marumasu Nishimuraya on this picture.

The comfort of a home away from home

All of the 22 guestrooms come complete with mini-kitchens, which makes guests feel truly at home. This makes Mayu Grace Hotel a great place not just for sightseeing but for long-term business stays as well. The lobby is designed for the ultimate in comfort, and features raised tatami-floored seating as well as sofas. Staff from Leaf, a local publishing house that also operates hotels, are available onsite 24 hours a day to help guests get the most out of their stay in Kyoto.
