Candeo Hotels: Kyoto Karasuma Rokkaku is a beautiful hotel with a mix of modern and traditional. We feel in love with the hotel for it’s charm and the heritage infrastructure of Kyoto Machiya being preserved . The rooms are a perfect size and beautifully done with traditional aspects but all the modern amenities that you can think of. The location is perfect since it’s close to the subway and also not far from all the popular spots to see. This location also has an amazing Skyspa to relax in after a full day of activities. Do not miss out on their traditional breakfast bento that can be eaten from your room or in the preserved breakfast venue.
