24.May.2019 | SPOT

TRASTA is opened the third branch of its Stay Hotel brand “Sutei” in Kiyomizu Gojo, Kyoto on March 20. This hotel is made to feel like you’re actually living in Kyoto.

There are three types of rooms to choose from: Standard Twin, Superior Twin and Japanese-Western. The two twin rooms each have two beds while the Japanese-Western room has a Western-style area with two beds and a Japanese-style area with futons. This offers guests a chance to experience the tradition of rolling out a futon to sleep and rolling it back up again to put away.

Standard Twin: From ¥20,000 (Tax & Service Charge Included. Accommodation Fees Separate)

The Standard Twin has two single beds which can be pushed together to make a double bed. The room is relaxing and compact while having everything you need.

Superior Twin: From ¥25,000 (Tax & Service Charge Included. Accommodation Fees Separate)

The Superior Twin also has two single beds. These rooms however enjoy plenty of bright natural light filtering through thanks to the large windows which also give the room a feeling of openness.

Japanese-Western (4 People Max): From ¥42,000 (Tax & Service Charge Included. Accommodation Fees Separate)

Japanese-Western is split into two areas: one with two single beds that can be pushed together and another with tatami flooring, a table and futons. Its larger capacity makes it the ideal choice for families and groups.

The first thing guests will encounter at any Sutei hotel are their original indigo dye entryway sign curtains. Known as noren, these curtains are unique to Japan and not found in the US, Europe, or other countries around Asia.

The curtains give a hospitable feeling upon entry. The more they are dyed, the deeper the colour becomes. The hotel hops that the curtains will leave a deep impression of staying in Japan to those visiting the hotel.

 

Sutei was established to give people an authentic Japanese experience to those travelling to and staying in Japan. But Japanese culture has strict social rules, so they also wanted to ensure it is comfortable and fun for guests too. Staying with Sutei gives guests an opportunity to get their fill of the country.

The hotel is also situated in a favourable location within walking distance of many Kyoto tourist spots such as Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Sanjusangendo Temple, Kyoto National Museum, Gion, Shijo and more. Its interior design is also based on Japanese architecture and blends in with the natural environment. Amenities and other services are also prepared to give guests a taste of Japanese omotenashi, or “hospitality.”
