Four Seasons Kyoto is perhaps the most enjoyable hotel experience I’ve ever had in my life. I’ve stayed in fancier places, but nothing with such kind and helpful staff. The concierge was endlessly helpful in getting us to the trains we needed to take for our day trips. Almost everyday there was some fun and special gift waiting for us in our rooms when we returned. The room was cleaned for us multiple times per day. The facility is superb. The rooms are amazingly beautiful. Ours had a more “average” view of the beautiful bamboo grove next door. The steam room, gym, and baths are wonderful and lifegiving. If I had to nitpick I would say the pool is strange. It’s like it’s in a cave. Beautiful but without sunlight. The restaurant is a bit overpriced. I mean, $15 for a cup of coffee? Also the music in the hotel lobbies and such is lame. Typical elevator music. But that’s about all. Truly a beautiful hotel. Tip: come during the low season! We got a room for $700/night in mid January which is significantly cheaper than other times in the year.
