Mercure Kyoto station is the first Mercure brand in Kyoto which belongs to Accor hotels. It opened in September 2020 during the COVID-19 crisis. Hand sanitizers are everywhere for your own safety.
The hotel is located approximately 7 minutes walk from Karasuma-guchi exit of Kyoto station at relatively quite neighborhood area. The hotel has one restaurant opened for all day which breakfast starts at 06:30. Also there is a lounge in B1 floor.
The significant point of this hotel is that the bathroom is large. The shower is not located above the bath tub and you can wash your body outside the tub. Of course there is a safe and fridge where you can put your beverages inside.
One bad thing is that there is no desk which you can work with your laptop. Therefore the hotel is more likely for tourists rather than for business.
