The General Kyoto Takatsuji Fuyacho
- Set across five Zen-inspired buildings, The General Kyoto Takatsuji Fuyacho is all about harmony. This artful boutique retreat blends seamlessly with the cityscape, inviting you to walk Kyoto's historical paths as you explore the hotel. Each of the five buildings has a different contemporary feel, yet their traditional Machiya structure brings a sense of unity and calmness.
As you step inside, the aesthetic attention to detail is immediate. Designed with tranquillity in mind, the calm palette and crisp lines in each suite invite you to relax – right away. Uncover clarity of mind in the Zen meditation room, or take lessons in traditional cooking and crafts. Walk, run and cycle between the hotel buildings: these spaces are where mind and body can come together, away from the bustling crowds of Gion.
The unique layout of the hotel encourages exploration. Wind your way through the city’s traditional and modern architecture, soaking up the Kyoto way of life. From the famous Nishiki Market, to Gion's magnificent temples, to the understated 'ochaya' teahouses – this is Japan in its element. Relish local cuisine, explore the arts, crafts and philosophy, and be swept up in one of many festivals in Kyoto's calendar. It all happens on the doorstep of The General Kyoto Takatsuji Fuyacho.
COVID-19 SANITATION & SAFETY GUIDELINES
Our 'Stay Small, Stay Safe’ initiative offers enhanced health and detailed safety guidelines for all 520 SLH hotels in 90 countries.
With just 50 rooms on average, SLH properties are able to offer secluded, discrete options with the highest safety standards. Our hotels commit to welcome you on the safest conditions and provide examples of their heightened standards for hygiene on their hotel page.
The programme provides peace of mind for guests as they prepare to travel the world once again. The ‘Stay Small, Stay Safe’ initiative acknowledges the desire for intimate hotel experiences with fewer crowds that travellers are seeking.
In order to safeguard these standards, SLH has entered a partnership with the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) for its hotels to pursue GBAC STAR™ accreditation, which provides third-party validation to ensure hotels have the elevated cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques and work practices in place so guests can truly relax during their stay.
All SLH hotels are currently seeking GBAC STAR accreditation.
