Seeking the benefits of a hotel with the flexibility of home? Look no further than a Hotel Residence Suite at Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto: the convenience and amenities of a hotel combined with the freedom of a Hotel Residence. And now, enjoy a host of additional complimentary extras with the new Hotel Residence Package, which includes transfers, welcome Champagne, in-room dining options, laundry service and more.

Much larger in size than their hotel suite counterparts, the 57 Hotel Residence Suites at Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto offer a choice of one or two bedrooms in the heart of the city’s best-preserved temple district, Higashiyama, ideal for families and friends seeking a stay that bring them closer to Kyoto.  

Each contemporary space has been carefully designed to maximise kutsurogi, the Japanese art of relaxation, with light-flooded living areas that open onto spacious balconies for entertaining, cooking and dining in privacy, with stunning views of the surrounding scenery and city.

And the surrounding scenery certainly merits a mention, as the Hotel Residence Suites are located within the Hotel’s beautiful 10,000 square-metre (107,000 square foot) pond garden, Shakusui-en: a 12th century sanctuary of lush foliage, tree-lined paths and vibrant ponds alive with koi fish, ducks and turtles.

The best of Four Seasons is also easily accessible, with a wide variety of dining options including Michelin-starred sushi and 24-hour in-room dining, as well as the city’s finest spa and fitness centre and an atmospheric Tea House within the 800-year old pond garden.  

But it’s the proximity of the Hotel Residence Suites to the city’s major sites that really sets them apart as the ultimate Kyotan home-away-from-home. Atmospheric temples such as Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Sanju-sangendo Temple are within an easy stroll, along winding streets that whisper centuries of secrets and buzzing markets filled with artisan crafts. And just a few minutes’ taxi ride away or less than 30-minutes by foot are Gion, Kyoto’s most famous Geisha district; the traditional nightlife alleyway of Pontocho; Kawaramachi shopping district; and Nishiki Market – the best place to try Kyotan street food.

Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto Hotel Residence Package is available for a minimum stay of two nights includes the following benefits:

  • One round-trip private transfer in a five-seat minivan between Kyoto Station and the Hotel
  • Daily In-Room Dining breakfast or buffet breakfast at Brasserie for two adults per bedroom

  • Complimentary laundry (three pieces a day)
  • A glass of welcome Champagne per adult, per stay at Tea House Shakusui-tei from 5:00 to 9:00 pm
