All of the 13 rooms are individually designed by local and foreign artists, each with their own take on contemporary art. Each has the usual up-to-date mod-cons with speaker docks, flatscreen TVs, coffee machines and humidifiers.
Semi-suite rooms range between 38-47 sqm and most are either full kingsize beds or hollywood twin bed set-ups. Suite rooms are bigger at between 52-67 sqm and often have separate bed and rest area.
Executive suite rooms number only two of the total rooms (72 and 78 sqm). The first, the Saito suite is designed by kimono designer, Jotaro Saito, and in keeping with his passion and the city's most famous market, this room comes complete with a Nishiki textile wall. The second, the Iga suite, is much more modernist in style with clean fresh white lines and polished materials used throughout.
Sitting in the heart of Teramachi, or the area where most of Kyoto's shops and restaurants are, the Screen is well placed for exploration after a day of sightseeing temples.
Food and drink
The Bron Bronnery Restaurant, open for lunch and dinner, serves up a mix of local fresh ingredients with a twist of French culinary ideas. In the summer, the top terrace is open where you can enjoy fine wines, apéritifs and some light snacks in the Sho-ki Lounge.
Facilities and activities
One of the hotel's highlights is the Sky Lounge on the 5th floor with great views over the city. It's open for you to use during the day for a spot of relaxation or sunbathing, and decked out at night with candlelight.
