“KYOTO GRANBELL HOTEL” is a creative hotel that produces various “chemical reactions” by curating Japanese DNA and thought, overseas trends and skills, and multiplying every hotel function.
In the reception desk wall and the bar, the old chest and the transom more than 150-year-old function as art works. At the front desk counter, hexagonal roof tiles made by a tile craftsman and Edison bulb lightings welcome guests, and at the lounge, Kimono fabric of Jotaro Saito are coordinated with the vintage and contemporary contract furniture. Besides, the 10 meters long buffet counter integrated with the display shelf, the solar lighting of Paolo di Trapani streaming down on the open-air underground large public bath, the underground guest room based on the idea of the Tsuboniwa of Kyoto town house and the bright and quiet underground housing, and the walking art corridor that has Mariko Hayashi ‘s mural painting on floor are provided. By linking these elements with “chains of chemical reactions” in a hotel scene, we created a new “Japanese creative hospitality space” for both Japanese and foreign guests.
