Suiran, a Luxury Collection Hotel Kyoto

If you love the Arashiyama area, I really think you should stay at Suiran, a Luxury Collection Hotel Kyoto.  Perhaps, if you want to get much of an immersive “Japanese-style luxury” experience as you expect, I would highly recommend it.  We were overwhelmed by the beauty of the traditional garden, architecture, and interior.  On the other hand, if this is your first visit to Kyoto, I wouldn’t recommend it.  Because the location is not in central Kyoto.  It takes 30-40min by car or train from Kyoto Station.  Suiran, a Luxury Collection Hotel Kyoto would be great for couples, families, small groups, or solo travelers.  The ambiance is serene, elegant, and relaxed.  There are 39 rooms only.  This is like a small luxury hotel for adults.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room with a private hot spring.  Most of the rooms tend to be cramped for this price range.  You may want to book a more spacious room as much as possible.  The spring quality was wonderful more than I expected.  If you are a hot spring lover, you should try it.  Also, there are two private family hot springs in-house.  It costs 3,500JPY for 45min.  You need to book it in advance.  They are open from 6:00-12:00, 15:00-24:00.  *There is no communal bath, no club lounge, and no swimming pool in-house.  Then all of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, pajamas, bathrobes, yukatas, bottled water, and a Japanese tea set, etc.  Complimentary coffee is available in the lobby.  Room service is available for 24H.  There is a convenience store nearby.  Turn-down service is available.  Free Wifi reception was good in the property.  Then Suiran, a Luxury Collection Hotel Kyoto is child-friendly.  Staff can provide baby cribs, amenities, and yukatas for small children if you request in advance.  Also, café HASSUI in-house offers a “happy hour” from 16:30-18:30.  Complimentary champagne, wine, Japanese sake, and dry fruits were available.  We fully enjoyed drinking while viewing the river.  That’s precious time.  Don’t miss it.  Then the hotel is universal design and wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the reception.  Then the food experience for breakfast was good but the portion tends to be small.  You can choose either Western or Japanese cuisine for breakfast.  We chilled out at the restaurant while viewing the amazing garden in the morning.  Breakfast starts at 7:00 AM.  Then if you stay here, I would recommend visiting the French restaurant “Arashiyama Mitate” for lunch or dinner.  Actually this is a Japanese & French Fusion Cuisine.  All dishes were artistic, exquisite, and sophisticated.  You need to book a private room in advance.  The restaurant has private rooms only so a family with small children is also welcome.  The location is just near the hotel.  *Please note that most of the shops, restaurants, and cafes in Arashiyama are closed around 6 PM.  If you go out for dinner nearby, you may want to book a table in advance.  Most of the restaurants for dinner are reservation-only.  Also, most of them are open from 11 AM.  You may want to have breakfast in the hotel.  Then the staff tends to be patchy.  If you expect sophisticated hospitality, this is not.  Then access to the property would be easy.  A free shuttle service is available.  Staff can arrange a TAXI from Exit Hachijoguchi of Kyoto station, or a rickshaw from JR Saga Arashiyama station, Arashiyama station on the Randen Line, or Arashiyama Station on the Hankyu Line.  Absolutely I would recommend the latter.  You need to book it by 3 days before by  Overall, the location fee would be included in the cost of accommodation but we definitely felt the authenticity and luxury at once.  Anyway if you stay here, you wouldn’t need to travel far until check-out time.  There are many attractive spots within walking distance.   You should take a walk around Arashiyama before breakfast in the early morning.  There would be few people around there.  The atmosphere would be very special.  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.  *Check-in and out times 3:00 PM/12:00 PM
