Enjoy the culture and wellness of Kyoto

GION ELITE TERRACE is a hotel located in Gion Bishamoncho, Kyoto City, with private saunas and the concept of "Culture & Wellness".

With Yasaka Shrine, Kiyomizu Temple, and Gion Hanamikoji all within walking distance, our area is filled with all the atmosphere of Kyoto.

Please enjoy a relaxing time with all your five senses together with your loved ones.


Feel close to the 1,200-year history of the ancient capital. Kyoto is known throughout the world for embodying a broad range of traditional Japanese cultures.

Located in Gion, surrounded by an elegant atmosphere, our hotel is within walking distance from famous sightseeing spots such as Yasaka Shrine, Kiyomizudera Temple and Kenninji Temple.

Enjoy the real Gion and take a special glimpse of the city you can't usually see, such as the quietness of the early morning and the bustle of the night. With the concept of "travel as if you were living in Kyoto”, we offer an exceptional experience for everyone who loves Kyoto, from solo travelers to friends and families.

Stay & Room

Spacious guest rooms with lots of natural materials

Natural materials are used extensively in the guest rooms, creating a sense of nature throughout the building.

For the comfort of families and foreign tourists, guest rooms are as spacious as 28-45 square meters.

There are also connecting rooms, a rarity in Kyoto hotels, and a super suite combining three rooms with a private entrance, with a total area of 105 to 125 square meters. These three rooms are our largest accommodation arrangement: they can accommodate up to 11 people and can be used for a variety of purposes.

All guest rooms are furnished with convenient facilities for families and long-stay travelers, including a kitchenette, microwave oven and a common laundry space in the building.

Embody Wellness

Private saunas and oxygen bubble baths to express the concept of “wellness”

"Wellness" is embodied in the original custom saunas provided by "Finland Sauna Japan" (installed in 11 of the 31 rooms) with the possibility of creating steam from hot stones. There are still not many hotels in Japan that have authentic saunas made in Japan using an abundance of Japanese cypress. In addition, an oxygen bubble bath is installed in the bathrooms.

The oxygenated microbubbles have high cleansing power and warm up the body, so you won't feel cold after bathing, and your skin will stay moisturized for a long time. If you use the sauna and this oxygen bubble bath, the fatigue of your trip will disappear in no time.
