“We've been wanting to do a project in Japan for 20 years, and collaborating with a visionary like Kengo Kuma and being lifelong friends with Commune makes it even more special. Kyoto has been an epicenter that has inspired countless artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, and poets. Kyoto is a city that sparks creativity and inspires travel, and we look forward to Ace serving as a central gathering place for locals and travelers alike.” -Kelly Sawdon, Partner and Chief Brand Officer, Ace Hotel Group

Ace Hotel Kyoto aims to become a monument to Japan's creative epicenter that celebrates simple pleasures and respect for traditions. Reverent of the unexpected, yet receptive to the city's unique energy and culture, the hotel will feature original works of art (including works by artist Samiro Yunoki), several courtyards, including one centrally located between the historic and new buildings, carefully landscaped gardens and room details that include Japanese bathtubs. Ace Hotel Kyoto extols the city's abundance of nature, art, ever-evolving culture, sophistication of craftsmanship and deep history.
