    Everything is wonderful except-avoid room service
    Each and every day of our eight day stay room service was not up to standard of a fine hotel. The orders were late and always always with issues. When items were forgotten the “re-do” would be met with a verbal apology but would still be incorrect when the arrived again. I called the main reception and let them know of all the specifics. Again, more pleasant apologies but no action or discount for the missing items upon the check out. It’s all about the way of handling issues. So overall the service was just ok.

    6 nights at Four Seasons Kyoto
    The location was beautiful, quiet and private - the room was spacious and peaceful with a very adequate balcony with seating for 2. Walking or taxi rides will take you to major sights. If you are comfortable with trains and subways, then you can get everywhere. We used taxis, and traveling across town was only $28 one way. Across the street was a small special Italian restaurant - Il Pappalardo. Some of the best Italian food and fresh fish we have had anywhere.

    Delightful stay
    It was absolutely fantastic. Angela at the Concierge was knowledge, professional and patient. The housekeeping staff was amazing - they paid such great attention to detail. The hotel was impeccable and beautiful as well as clean. The only thing we were caught off guard on was the price of coffee at ¥1500 a cup during lunch!

    My favorite FS property to date. Getting to the hotel from Kyoto station was very easy. I just grabbed a cab and at the station and driver knew how to get there. The hotel is beautiful and although we paid an extra premium price for the Autumn season it was worth it. Rooms are beautiful, staff had excellent recommendations for sightseeing, breakfast buffet was perfect with local and Western options, and spa was great to relax in after sightseeing. Pick this hotel--you won't regret it.
