Travelers watching their wallets appreciate the eclectic style and thoughtful extras at this reasonably priced hotel.
Done right, fusion brings out the best of the cultures it unites. This is the case with Hotel Monterey Kyoto, an intriguing property whose facilities range from Zuientei serving classic Japanese kaiseki (multi-course) cuisine to the Chapel St. Simon Zelotes, an authentic recreation of a historic chapel in Upper Chelsea in London. Add a French restaurant, British pub and Scottish arts-and-crafts style, and the result is surprisingly harmonious. Guest rooms are handsome and well-equipped with kettles, air purifiers, pajamas, slippers, pillow selections and free Wi-Fi. The hotel welcomes meetings and events with elegant banquet and conference rooms. Spa Trinite resides on the penthouse level and offers pampering with pure natural hot springs pumped from more than 3,000 feet beneath the city.
