This was another hotel selected by our tour agency for the 3-day stay in Kyoto, so I cannot offer any insight as to why this was chosen over other accommodations in the area. While I can't disagree with the previous assessments that the hotel is showing its age in places, after the previous 2 hotels in other cities, I can... More

When looking for a hotel in a country you have never been, it is very helpful to read the comments on Tripadvisor. That is why I am taking the time to write this review to help other fellow travelers. Location: Just as everyone commented, the hotel is conveniently located just across from the Kyoto Train Station. You can't go wrong... More

I stayed in New Miyako for a few days while visiting Kyoto. The hotel is HUGE and from what I understood most of the people used it for a 1-night stay due to it's proximity of the train/metro station. This location may make it a reasonable place to explore Kyoto. The hotel itself has absolutely nothing special. Service is just... More

This hotel was totally overpriced. We only stayed here for one night and am glad I didn't books entire Kyoto stay with them. The rooms were very old and in desperate need of refurbishment. The mattress was rock hard and pillows were flat. Also beware that there is construction going on in the east wing of the hotel. It's loud... More

This is a big, busy hotel with excellent service, though there are lines at check in when a large number of people arrive. Rooms are good size for Japan and my air conditioning was just fine and totally quiet. Its right next to Kyoto station - which has a huge number of restaurants and shops - and less than five...

This Hotel was up there with our favourites that we stayed in while travelling around Japan. I would recommend the included breakfast option. This hotel had the best included breakfast option by far! There was a particularly friendly and very helpful woman at the concierge office who helped us a great deal to book a tour so all of their... More

the air conditioning did not work. Train noise was muffled by me wearing ear plugs, the room was hot, but could not leave the window open because of the noise. The bed as firm and the pillows were awful, and the spare pillow is small and useless, the put it in a large pillow case. Breakfast buffet, runny eggs, thin... More

Across the street from Kyoto station (west exit) New Miyako or (shin Miyako) is a great location if you're using the JR lines and other trains. The shopping and restaurants in Kyoto station, alone, can occupy your time. We stayed in the older wing, I believe there is a newer nicer wing. The older wing is a bit worn. We... More

We stayed there for four days from 7/16-7/20. It was located directly across from the Kyoto station on the Shinkansen side. Ours was a triple room with three full size bed( they were bigger than twin size)? It was adequate in size, a bit small due to the extra bed. The room was clean and updated. All hotels in Japan...

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighborhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
