We stayed here two nights and had no regrets. The hotel is getting dated, and there are more luxurious rooms to be had at other hotels at the price. But everything was clean and worked, and the location was perfect. Staff attention and friendliness was excellent. A dozen major temples and shrines are within walking distance, and the subway station... More

We chose this hotel for our 5 night stay with some reservations (excuse the obvious) based on the reviews found on the hotel website and tripadvisor. Our concerns were somewhat valid-but, entirely made manageable by the extraordinary kindness and genuine care of most of the staff-only the Concierge was very hit and miss with some staff particularly unhelpful. When booking... More

Amongst our booked accommodation during our recent trip to Japan (Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto), our stay at the Westin Kyoto was the one I anticipated the most. And perhaps, because my expectation was so high-- I wasn’t that “pleased” and was yearning for something better from the hotel during our stay. The hotel was not bad, but not as seamless... More

Can't say enough wonderful things about this hotel. The location was perfect, right in the middle of the Higashiyama district, a short bike ride to the temples in either the northern part of the district or the south. A shuttle ran every 30 minutes to Gion, a 15-minute ride away. The view of the city from the rooftop was stunning.... More

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.
