JAPAN Inspiration Gallery 11 Japan
Back to Listing


Situated in the heart of Kyoto, the Screen is ideal for those wishing to experience contemporary Japanese culture. It is one of just a handful of boutique hotels in the city, and the quality of the experience makes up for the fact it's a fifteen minute walk from the station. Hallowed Hongan-ji Temple and the strolling area outside Kyoto Imperial Palace are both an easy stroll away. Nijo Castle and the mighty Heian Shrine are within a mile of Screen.

The 13 boutique rooms are all individually decorated by a variety of designers from around the world, offering a unique experience for every guest. These are modelled on motifs ranging from forests to Manhattan apartments, and are spacious by Kyoto standards. The Bron Ronnery restaurant offers guests innovative dining of French fusion combined with the finest local ingredients, with an enjoyable and light atmosphere. The stylish bar provides a combination of serenity and urban comfort, with rooftop terrace views and a distinctive sense of Japanese contemporary art nestled amongst the historical sights of the city.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Client Testimonials

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
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!

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
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!

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
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan 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
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
