This my 2nd hotel in Kyoto, quite different from previous one (down town hotel), Westin just locate nearby mountain. You could see 360 degree view of Kyoto city when you go top floor. And there's a small lane behind the hotel building, the lane is to hotel back yard and Japanese type rooms. If your budget is enough, it's a... More

We stayed here for our first time in Kyoto and the Hotel is well located. A nearby metro station (Keage) and the hotel's shuttle bus provide easy access to the main parts of the city. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was ok, but expensive. The room (a Superior Double Room) was comfortable , clean with internal... More

A couple of things: 1. Had to pay additional ¥500 to use gym/swimming pool each visit. 2. Location was okay to visit temples but far from Kyoto station. Need to take complimentary hotel bus which we were lucky enough to board without fuss the entire time. 3. Overall, the room was average and dated. Bathroom was just renovated which was... More

I stayed in this hotel on SPG points and with the Gold membership room upgrade, so my perspective could be a bit biased. However, the quality of our stay was all in all quite high. The room was nicely furnished, with a fast free Internet connection and a nice bathroom. The room's balcony had a nice view on Kyoto, despite... More

Hotel prepare free shuttle buses (staff told me there are 20 seats for guests and 5 seats for their luggage) between hotel and JR Kyoto station every 30 minutes. It sounds good because taxi will charge you about JPY3000 at this distance. However, this time I was not able to catch the bus total of four times at the first... More

Love this hotel while in Kyoto. Really good price and super comfortable. Not in the center but an easy walk to many of the wonderful sights of Kyoto. Breakfast is very good and internet works perfectly. Appreciate the mirror that doesn't steam up when you shower. Can't wait to go back!

Me and my husband stayed there for 3 nights last week. The room is quite large, and by far the largest one we stayed at in Japan (from 3 different hotels). I contacted the hotel via email a couple of days before my arrival, asking for suggestions on how to get from the train station to the hotel - sad... More

Great Westin, perfect location if you are looking to visit great Temples in Kyoto. Nice upgrade because of my Gold SPG membership (very much appreciated), is not always the case around the world. One minus point is Moonlight Bar, unexperienced staff, not great service, especially, when buy a cigar (expensive) and that cigar is too dry, no replacement, except this... More
