The 144-room luxury hotel offers a secret hideaway for travelers seeking authentic Japanese hospitality.

MGallery Kyoto Yura Hotel takes guests on a journey to the crossroads of time in the dawn of modern Japan with interiors blending elements reminiscent of the legendary Samurai era.

MGallery Kyoto Yura Hotel pays homage to the traditions of Kyoto through art and heritage, providing a unique experience inspired by the essence of the local neighbourhood – a key consideration for all MGallery Hotels. Boasting 144 rooms with contemporary classical design, local fabric Nishijin-ori can be found in each of its guest rooms celebrating a weaving heritage dating back over 1,200 years, while the seating area is furnished with traditional tatami mats.

Located within walking distance of the hotel are Kyoto’s most scenic spots that include the famed geisha district of Gion, Yasaka Shinto Shrine and downtown district of Kawaramachi. Guest staying at the hotel can enjoy an evening walk or morning run along the picturesque Kamo River.

Designed to highlight the distinct historical heritage of the city, the all-day dining, 54th Station Grill is named after the ancient route connecting Tokyo and Kyoto. Guests can expect to learn about similar authentic stories in 1867 Bar, located in the lobby, which draws inspiration from the original Samurai era and features a range of traditional and modern cocktails, mocktails and wines.

At the heart of Kyoto lies Gion, the city’s most popular entertainment district and the centre of its traditional arts. The streets of Gion are characterised by old wooden townhouses (machiya) featuring teahouses (ochaya), shops and local restaurants. The buildings give the district a beautiful old world charm. Apart from temples and shrines, Gion and the geisha culture play a big part in Kyoto’s history while the surrounding vibrant downtown area is also home to some of the best shopping districts in the city.
