Kyoto, Japan, January 14, 2022 / TRAVELINDEX / Best Western Hotels and Resorts has reached two important milestones in Japan with the launch of The Hotel Kyoto Palace, BW Signature Collection by Best Western, which marks the group’s first hotel in Kyoto, the country’s former imperial capital and charming heritage city, and the inaugural BW Signature Collection® by Best Western branded property in Japan.

Nestled in the city’s central Nakagyo Ward, which is home to many of Kyoto’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed temples, shrines and museums, as well as multiple shops and restaurants, The Hotel Kyoto Palace, BW Signature Collection by Best Western is an outstanding addition to this enchanting city. Its low-rise architectural style and wooden façade perfectly blend into the historical cityscape, while the locally-inspired interiors exude the essence of a traditional Japanese home.
