Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto



If you are looking for luxury hotels in Higashiyama area, you must stay at the hotel. The hardware is clearly outstanding and is enhanced by the memorable views. In particular, we were truly impressed with the traditional garden. On the other hand, the software, personnel and service was not of the same class and still has a long way to go.  The problem would be insufficient training.  Also I noticed that there was a shortage of labor when we stayed at the property in 2017.  If you have ever stayed at other Four Seasons Hotels, you may feel disappointed it.  Anyway, once we entered the gate, the four season’s world was perfectly created.  Facilities, such as rooms, lounge, lobby, swimming pool, spa, restaurants, and traditional garden are absolutory spectacular.  If you are going to stay there, I would highly recommend booking a room with views of the traditional garden and the tea house.  It’s truly worth staying it.  You will be able to see a magnificent garden anytime while chilling out at the room.  That’s the precious time.  Then all of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, bathrobes, a coffee machine with 6 capsules, English tea bags, welcome fruit, a Japanese tea set, bottled water, complimentary milk in a fridge, etc.  Also skin care cosmetics are available if you request.  Then if you bring your infants, you may want to inform staff of it in advance as staff can prepare baby carriages, cribs, baby soap & lotion, baby’s nappies, etc.  Also room service is available for 24H.  Turn down service is available.  You can request the above services etc., by iPad which is placed in each room.  Then the property is perfect universal design.  Wheelchairs are available.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform staff of it in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift as much as possible.  The building tends to be long from side to side so some rooms would be inconvenient when you move around.  Then don’t forget to visit the bar in the garden called Shakusui-tei.  The tea house is open between 17:00-21:00.  It is supposed to be a café in the daytime from 14:00-17:00.  The ambience is surprisingly awesome, mystical and romantic.  Probably most of guests visit Brasserie to view the traditional garden from the terrace but I think that the garden view would be more charming, elegant, and luxury from the tea house.  Then there is an includible heated pool, two Jacuzzis, public baths, saunas and gym on B2.  The ambience is absolutory amazing.  This is definitely one of the best hotel pools in Japan.  Don’t forget to chill out at the pool side.  You can bring your own swimming wears or disposable swimming wears are complimentary available.  It is open between 6:00-22:00.  The gym is open for 24H.  Sport wears and shoes are complimentary available too.  *A minimum age requirement of 16 applies.  The buffet-style food for breakfast was excellent.  No doubt this is one of the best in Japan.  You won’t be resist even you are full.  Don’t forget to bring an empty stomach. Breakfast time is from 7:00 to 10:30.  We didn’t have dinner and lunch in the property.  You can request if you have any food allergies or dietary needs.  Then the location is almost perfect.  There are many well-known spots around property.  You wouldn’t need to travel far.  Just hanging out around there would be much exciting.  It takes 6min by TAXI from Kyoto Station.  It costs around 700JPY.  It takes 10min walk from Shichijo Station.  At last, the best season to stay there would be in spring or fall.  You will be able to fully enjoy breathtaking views in the garden.  The weather is just nice, not so hot, and not so cold.  The hotel is one of the popular in Kyoto.  Also I noticed that there were many local people using restaurants only on-site.  If you want to relax there in a tranquil atmosphere, you may want to avoid staying during Lunar New Year, late April to early May, weekends of November, and the end of year and New Year holiday.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about the property from the below space.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.
