What is a historic hotel like in Arashiyama?
A historic hotel gives guests a chance to stay in a building recognized with an official historic designation. Historic hotels throughout the world have had many former lives and uses, such as castles, palaces or even pubs or old police stations — any building that’s been identified as being of special interest. These types of hotels in Arashiyama typically retain original qualities like traditional architecture and period features in their communal spaces or guestrooms.
What is the difference between a historic hotel and a heritage hotel?
The two are similar. The term “historic hotel” is more common in the U.S., while you’ll often hear “heritage hotel” in Asia and Europe. Historic hotels tend to focus on the physical building and architecture. A heritage hotel draws meaning mainly from the cultural value that the place has and how it inspired the surrounding community.

Yes. Every effort is made to preserve the historic aspects and traditions, but hotel interiors are fitted with modern conveniences and safety features. Guests can expect the amenities you’d get from a hotel such as WiFi, heating and air conditioning, and updated bathroom facilities. In Arashiyama, booking a historic hotel doesn’t mean you’re choosing a place that’s uncomfortable for guests or simply rundown.
