Marriott International is planning a Moxy Hotel for the Nijo Castle area in Kyoto City. Construction began in July, with the opening scheduled for 2021. This will be the third Moxy hotel in Japan and the first in Kyoto.
The 158 hotel rooms in Moxy Kyoto Nijo will be around 20 sqm in size. Guests can enjoy a 77-seat dining lounge on the ground floor, along with a gym and library space. The 8-story building sits on a 1,230 sqm site and will have a total building size of approximately 5,800 sqm.
The area around Nijo Castle is seeing several new hotels under development. In June, Shangri-La acquired a 4,700 sqm site on the northern side of the Castle. In 2020, Mitsui Fudosan plans to open a luxury hotel on a 7,000 sqm site on the eastern side of the Castle.
