Opened in Kyoto on March 16, 2021, becoming the second FAUCHON hotel globally after Paris.

Upon arriving Fauchon Hotel Kyoto

It is a Western-style hotel that doesn't resemble the traditional Kyoto architecture.

The atmosphere created by the hotel is truly unique—a luxurious lifestyle hotel crafted by Fauchon.

At the entrance, there is a magnificent staircase, and as I looked up at the ceiling, cherry blossoms were gracefully dancing on the walls and ceiling, creating a sense of fusion between Kyoto and Paris.

On both sides, there are pink sofas, and the carpet is also very stylish.

Check in floor

Check-in is at the reception on the 10th floor. Take the elevator to the 10th floor ! the front desk is connected to the bar.

On the central table, there are decorations of Fauchon macarons and tea. The welcome tea and dessert consist of apple tea and macarons.

Don't forget to take a photo sitting on the pink sofa and share it on Instagram!

Everyone was lining up to take photos, so I waited until there was no one around to take my own picture.

The macaron and tea offered as a welcome treat is absolutely delicious.

Head to my room

This is what the hallway looks like...! It's elegant and beautiful.
The carpet with the Fauchon pattern has a great sense of design.

Room Unboxing

The hotel, which opened in March 2021, has 53 rooms, and each room is equipped with a complimentary Gourmet Bar.

The unique worldview of Fauchon Hotel creates a space where girls can forget about reality. I highly recommend it to those who love the color pink.

⭐ Gourmet Bar

I believe the standout feature of Fauchon Hotel is its Gourmet Bar, which takes center stage in every room!

The Fauchon cookies and candies in the room are complimentary and include a variety of options such as cookies, pastries, macarons, and cakes.

The caramel cookies, in particular, are incredibly delicious,fridge is stocked with chocolates, and coffee and tea are provided to mix and match the desserts.

There is a wide variety of teas available, including THE LA POMME apple tea, THE MELANGE FAUCHON citrus fruit and vanilla tea, THE UN SOIR DE FRANCE almond and orange tea, THE UN APRES-MIDI A PARIS rose tea, Earl Grey tea, and Darjeeling tea.

I'm glad that all these teas are Fauchon's own flavors.

Of course, it's impossible to finish all these desserts at once (it would gain weight so easily), so the hotel also provides an original eco-friendly bag.

If the desserts cannot be finished, guests can pack them back in the bag. The value of these snacks is over 75~80 USD! It would be such a shame if everyone doesn't take them with them!

Having a stylish umbrella is so adorable! This is an original umbrella from Fauchon Hotel Kyoto, priced at 5,500 yen (approximately 38 USD).

You can purchase it at the snack boutique on the first floor of the hotel as well.
However, when I wanted to buy it, it was already sold out.

Bathroom

The hotel offers 5 room types, and only the basic Classic Room does not have a bathtub, only a shower area. The other 4 room types all have a bathtub.

The bathrooms are equally exquisite, featuring glass-encased gold kimono-style textile screens, grey marble surfaces, monotone tiling, and vibrant pink lip-shaped soap dishes.

The bathroom has Fauchon shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel, as well as a facial mask! These amenities have a sweet dessert-like fragrance.

Additionally, the hotel provides its own original soap with a refreshing lemongrass scent.

Even the hairdryer is pink, so I assume that it's a Dyson brand hairdryer inside, and indeed it is!

Restaurant

Fauchon Hotel's concept is "FAUCHON Meets Kyoto. Feel Paris." So, I highly recommend having at least 1-2 meals at the hotel (even if you're not staying there!).

The unique worldview of Fauchon Hotel creates a space where girls can forget about reality. I highly recommend it to those who love the color pink.

Breakfast

The breakfast at FAUCHON is a set menu, and in the morning, you can enjoy delicious salads and crispy hot bread while admiring the outside view.

Croissant, chocolate bread, French baguette, country-style bread, rye bread, all paired with strawberry and rose jams.

Fauchon's jams are quite expensive, and I didn't have a chance to buy them myself, but they were truly delicious, I licked every bit of it! Coupled with the excellent service from the staff, I highly recommend it!

Dinner

Dinner consists of delicate and rich French cuisine that incorporates Japanese ingredients, resulting in exquisite and flavorful dishes.

Afternoon tea

How can such a romantic hotel be complete without the beloved afternoon tea, adored by lady everywhere!

Bar (Fri , Sat avail)

"Le bar FAUCHON" is only open on Fridays and Saturdays from 16:00 to 23:30!

There are various Fauchon signature wines to choose from. After a long day of work, relax your body and mind against the backdrop of Kyoto's cityscape at sunset.

Hold a unique Fauchon cocktail or enjoy a glass of Fauchon's original rose champagne. This is the ideal place for you to unwind and refresh~

Fauchon Hotel Kyoto Hotel Location

Located on the Kamogawa riverside, offering beautiful views of Higashiyama. It is a 6-minute walk from Kiyomizu-Gojo Station and a 10-minute walk from Kyoto Kawaramachi Station.

I took a taxi from Kyoto Station and arrived in about 10 minutes.

Not only is it close to the bustling Shijo-Kawaramachi shopping district, but it also takes about 20 minutes on foot from the hotel to Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Ninen-zaka. So it's nice to take a stroll after enjoying desserts or a meal.
