Location was nice, it was near temples and shopping area and if you didn't want to walk downtown they have a shuttle you can take that runs twice an hour and also takes you to the train station. Our room was not the best. We walked into the lobby and were very excited about staying there, when we got to... More

The hotel condition is well maintained although there're some sign of aging, but everything was clean. Bed was of course Westin Heavenly Bed up to standard you would expect from Westin. We requested for suite upgrade 2 months in advance as this was for our anniversary but SPG would only started working on the upgrade 5 days prior to our... More

Stay or 3 nights with two friends in mid November. Price quite steep as it is the high season. Room is quite small especially after adding the extra bed as there are three of us. Hotel is a bit of the old style and amenity is adequate and room nice and tidy. There is a small nice Japanese garden leading... More

Old hotel with poor service. If you are traveling - the hotel is far from everything. Taxi rides only. Breakfast food is very poor quality. Go to executive floor and have coffee from the machine and some pastries there.

We liked this hotel. The hotel was ok. The lobby nice, and the staff was very responsive. In some ways the concierge services were overwrought with everything being written down...maybe it's just Japan. The room was very plain and slightly worn. The bed was comfortable. Our room was located on a busy street which had a nice view but could... More

Dear SPG Corporate Quality Control / Standards Department: Your franchisee in Kyoto, Japan, who admittedly owns a phenomenally located property in one of the World's great cities, is letting you down at every turn, and is absolutely diminishing your brand by resting on his laurels and pinching pennies in all too obvious ways. To wit: 1. The entire property needs... More

This hotel is a pretty good hotel - located very well in the scenic Higashiyama district of Kyoto. In fact, you can take a train/bus/taxi out of the hotel to Fushimi (in the south) and Ginkakuji (in the north) and take a scenic walk back to the hotel! You will cover the majority of historical/points of interest that way. It... More

As others have said, this is not a typical Westin experience. The hotel is rundown. We stayed three nights in a Japanese style room. It was very large and an interesting experience (a futon will be laid out on the floor with a pillow that feels a bit like it's stuffed with straw; there's a low table for tea and... More

Convenient spot, good restaurant and food, very clean, excellent concierge services. This is the ''MUST'' hotel in Kyoto. I recommend this hotel for family, couples, singles. Don't forget to reserve Yoshida Steakhouse in Gion area and visit the bamboo forest....
