Although the basic tones of the guestrooms are Fauchon pink, gold, black, and white, which are the standard colors of Fauchon Paris, they are decorated here and there with creations of Kyoto’s artisan’s expertise, such as curtains and fabrics made with Nishijin-ori textiles, and lampshades made with bamboo from Arashiyama, creating a space where you can feel the fusion of Paris and Kyoto.
