Hyatt Regency

The Hyatt Regency is a stylish and lively hotel located in the Kyoto’s historic Higashiyama sightseeing district, just a short walk from hallowed Sanjusangendo (temple of 1,000 Kannon) and a short taxi ride from the Geisha quarter of Gion. The light and airy interiors by acclaimed Japanese design studio 'Super Potato' are playful, well considered and imaginative with delightful re-interpretations of traditional zen concepts.

The 189 rooms and suites are soothing and comfortable with lots of clever touches, including the recent innovation of room cleaning and room service via your iPad using the complimentary in-room Wi-fi. The bars and restaurants have a real buzz and are a pleasure to dine at, with their Italian offering garnering particularly good reviews. The team at the Hyatt have embraced the fact that their client demographic has changed markedly, as foreign visitor numbers increase whilst the number of Japanese visitors has started to fall. The breakfasts are a great example of the Hyatt's positive response to this - gluten-free, halal, soya milk and so forth are not common in Japan but all can be found here. Throughout the hotel, the staff are friendly and efficient, with a higher than average level of spoken English due to ongoing training. All in all this hotel is a real gem!

Client Testimonials

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
