This hotel is a little out of the way, but it's setting really made up for that. There are some beautiful trails right on site. There is a very convenient shuttle that will take you to the main train station every 15 minutes that was very easy.

This Westin is a nice hotel. The people are lovely. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. It is located close to a subway station that is easy to get to and get around. Taxi's are easy to get as well. The food is adequate but not worth the price. There are so many other places to go for...

We had our booking at a small ryokan in Kyoto cancelled a week before we were to arrive in Kyoto. We happened to be arriving, unknown to us, at the peak of Cherry Blossom (Sakura) Season and it was impossible to find a place to stay. With patience we were able to get two rooms at the Westin Miyako for...

The service in this hotel is good, although English language ability is limited. The hotel itself is rather old but the rooms in the main building are nice, including the Japanese (tatami) rooms. The evening buffet is nothing to write home about but reasonably pleasant and not expensive. The hotel has a fresh scent with its air freshener. There is...

Very close to the station as well as some beautiful cherry blossoms rows lining an out of use railroad. If you go out and turn left downhill you quickly come across a delicious noodle shop. We were disappointed to find out the hotel's "spa" was limited to hair and makeup styling and facials.. No saunas or massages available.

The location is good and rooms ok but the food was terrible for what this type of hotel should deliver. Room service food was extremely bland. The western options in the breakfast buffet I found to really limited and bad quality and we felt rushed as two different staff told us the breakfast would close in 20 minutes, they even...

We both travel for work several times a week and have stayed in many Westins (Sheraton and Marriotts as well). This is not a Westin quality hotel. The main lobby is pleasant but beyond it is worn out carpets, old dented and bruised furniture and wooden walls that haven't seen any stain in some time. The halls go up down...

Came to the hotel in the evening after a van ride through the dark streets of Kyoto and the reception and lobby areas and personnel were welcoming. Our room was large and had all the amenities. The view from our room was of the garden that was well kept but had yet to have the spring blooming except for the...

cannot deny that its a comfortable place to stay in However, its a bit far from the Kyoto main station definitely not within walking distance. The hotel is big .. as compared to normal Japanese standards.. Its international branding afterall. But I would prefer the smaller hotels near the train station. Cosy and more convenient

very large hotel lots of public space, geared for convention and group travel which it does well. I recognise one or two areas are looking worn at the edges but I guess fitting new carpets in some of the larger rooms cost more than my house. I spotted that the dining room had new carpet with matching wallpaper and curtains....

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
