The Westin Kyoto is a big and expensive hotel. The room, the bathroom and the bed were very good. The internet in the room not bad but could be better. The breakfast good. The location not bad but perhaps we could find better. In fact the hotel could be excellent if we felt a warmer reception or if we felt... More

This Westin saved me - I was booked in a terrible hostel of a hotel (the Kyoto Dai-Ichi) and took refuge here. So I am positively disposed toward the hotel, and while it generally meets Westin standards it also fails on a couple of accounts. Here are strengths and weaknesses. Strengths: - Great views from higher floors of the beautiful... More

As a Gold Starwood member, stayed 2 nights on reward points. The hotel recently got devalued so I think at the current rate, it is an awesome deal. We were in Room 728 with a view of the park. I believe our floor was an Executive Floor but we did not receive an upgrade nor was there access to the... More

My wife and I came here on our honeymoon and loved it. 23 years later, it is as good as we remembered - even better. The rooms were gorgeous, the staff endlessly helpful, the location terrific and the free train station shuttle a real bonus. Nothing but good things to say about this wonderful hotel in a wonderful city.

Stayed here many times, both business and pleasure. This time attending a workshop. Initially gave me a huge suite in the older wing overlooking the city in recognition of my platinum status, but since it was quite a hike to get there, they kindly moved me to a smaller more modern suite close to the lounge, with views of the...

The Westin is a wonderful building on the outskirts of Kyoto with spacious rooms and comfortable beds. The bathroom is also nice. My biggest issue with the hotel was the outrageously priced breakfast (3600 yen) which was not all that great. It is also a bit far from the main sites.

During my second visit to Kyoto, I stayed at the Westin Miyako again. Why wouldn't I? This hotel has more than 100 years of history, one of the best places I have stayed at and the service is truly amazing. I had a group of 80 delegates staying for a technical event that was held at the hotel and with... More

Great city, nice sights and sounds, lots of things to do. Great rooms, good location and fantastic suite amenities. The only issue i have with the hotel is the lounge. An absolutely disgrace! 10 pathetic small tables tucked in a corner after a staircase landing. No doors for entry and just a walkway, no reception area but just a little... More

Beautiful hotel in a great area. Public transportation within easy walking distance or taxis ready right outside with friendly door staff. Extremely helpful concierges and front desk staff. The rooms were very large with luxurious products and robes. Highly recommend staying here

The hotel is near a tube station, it is on walking distance from many of the temples. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean and the staff is very helpful. Breakfastbuffet was fantastic with so many choices eventhough a bit noicy.
