Introduction to《Moxy Kyoto Nijo》
“The Moxy Kyoto Nijo, which opened on July 1, 2021, did not exist prior to the pandemic. According to its official website, the hotel boasts a minimalist design and is equipped with a wide range of amenities, offering an exceptional modern accommodation experience. The hotel’s innovative lobby design is sure to inspire, while the thoughtful and attentive room decor provides a comfortable space to relax and enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi, catering to guests from all corners of the globe. If planning a trip to Kyoto post-pandemic, this hotel is certainly a new option worth considering.”
Review of《Moxy Kyoto Nijo》
If arriving from Kansai International Airport or Osaka to Kyoto, one can take the San’in Main Line from Kyoto Station to Nijo Station, which is a two-minute walk from Moxy Kyoto Nijo. As the check-in date coincided with a three-day weekend in Japan, the hotel was fully booked, and the entire lounge area was bustling with guests chatting and enjoying drinks at the bar.
The room decor at Moxy Kyoto Nijo is 87% similar to that of Moxy Tokyo Kinshicho, and prices are naturally in a similar range. The standard Ume double or twin rooms range from approximately 100 USD per night, and may potentially increase slightly in the future due to the expected surge in travel demand. However, the prices should not be excessively high, making it a great choice for those who want to select a Marriott property while also saving money among Kyoto hotels.
In addition to its proximity to Nijo Castle, there are also other nearby attractions that are easily accessible from Moxy Kyoto Nijo. For example, visitors can take the Tozai Line from Nijo Station to Sanjo Keihan Station, and then walk a short distance to reach Yasaka Shrine in the Gion district. Alternatively, for those who prefer not to walk, they can take the city bus number 46 from Nijo Station, which goes directly to Gion. As for its location, Moxy Kyoto Nijo is situated in the central area of Kyoto, making it convenient for travelers to access various destinations throughout the city.
The room’s design exudes a greater sense of sophistication compared to typical business hotels. Of course, budget constraints make it difficult to expand the space further, but at least the quality is superior to subpar options. I recall a time before the pandemic, when I played table football with foreigners on the first floor of Moxy in Tokyo. This is a rarity in other conventional hotels, making it a suitable choice for those who enjoy making new acquaintances.
For the other aspects, let’s leave them to the photos. Lastly, I would like to remind you that currently, when entering Japan, it is necessary to apply for “Visit Japan Web” in order to facilitate a swift passage through customs. The address of the hotel you will be staying at can be filled in on VJW for customs declaration purposes.
