The hotel is a regular big 4* hotel. There is always many people moving in and out. Localization is good to walk to several place in the city (15-20min depending on the area). Rooms are ok and big in dimension (western style in our case 9001) You have many places for food but actualy for western breakfast you get mainly... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with our almost 2 year old. Location wise the hotel is great and they provide a shuttle bus into town and the train station which was useful, there are great views over the city. The hotel is huge and really varied throughout in terms of style and quality. Our room was fine, nothing special (considering... More

I had a luxury suite on the top floor of the front facing building and absolutely enjoyed my stay. The bathroom was quite small and the furnishings were a little dated but overall this was a great place to stay in Kyoto. The balcony had great views over the town and temples and the staff were all super friendly and... More

A rather sprawling enormous hotel with Western facilities, but none of the local Japanese hospitality. Good location next to some sites, but a taxi or metro ride to others. Average buffet breakfast and average rooms. Concierge was helpful and guided us to enjoy some activities.

Fantastic service, spacious rooms, great food and drink. Affordable bike hire. We hired assisted bikes. Which was a great way to get around the city. To discover many of the temples. Excellent proximity to gion. Would recommend to anyone seeking to experience Kyoto. Would definitely come back again.

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...
