Discover something special at FAUCHON L’Hotel Kyoto—a luxury hotel unlike any other, with a unique pink colour that is like cherry blossoms in spring. As the second gem in the renowned FAUCHON brand from France,  this hotel sets a new standard by seamlessly merging the culinary, artistic, spatial, and hospitable spirits of both Paris and Kyoto. From the warm entrance welcome to guide you up to the elevator and complimentary FAUCHON sweets, every detail reflects their commitment to an extraordinary guest experience.  They have especially curated a playlist that mixes French and Japanese music too!

Collaborating with local contemporary artists and craftsmen, the hotel’s spaces showcase art that beautifully harmonises FAUCHON and Kyoto, capturing a modern aesthetic inspired by Kyoto’s changing seasons. Notably, rooms and furniture incorporate the iconic Nishijin Woven Textiles, a royal warrant textile from Kyoto’s Nishijin area dating back to the Edo Period. Such textiles typically feature brilliantly dyed silk interwoven with lavish gold and silver threads into complex and skillful patterns. 

Meanwhile, FAUCHON L’Hotel Kyoto’s Prestige Suite offers a glimpse of Shigaraki-Yaki through a luxurious bathtub.
