I traveled to Japan with my 10 year old son and my parents. I had wanted to experience a traditional Japanese Room, but they wanted a Western Style Room. This hotel was able to accomodate both types of rooms, in a 4 star manner. My parents room was in a newer part of the hotel, with a balcony looking over... More

I was very happy I stayed at the Miyako Hotel. It is an historic property, and although I can understand that some might find it dated, I found it unique, classy and charming. I booked a decent price through Starwood Preferred Guest, and was thoroughly satisfied. FYI it does not have the same corporate feeling as some other Westin properties... More

High class hotel. Rooms differ from each other but all very Specious. Staff is very helpful and nice, speaking English well. The hotel is very close to the important turist parts of Kyoto. Hotel shuttle all day long, every 30 minutes, at 15 and 45. The rooms have free coffee, water bottles and tea. In room wifi that rally works.... More

Beautiful and comfortable hotel. The welcome by the staff was quit impressive. The staff was extremely professional and courteous. However, we were surprised that their proficiency in conversational English was very limited and not expected at a major hotel in an international city. The shuttle was very helpful as the hotel is not in the main area of Kyoto. The... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in June 2014. This was our second time staying at this hotel (first was 3 years prior). I had booked a Superior double room with 1 bed but got upgraded to a larger room but with two beds, no problem just pushed the beds together. Very generous sized room for Japan. Clean, comfortable. Nice tub... More

We splashed out a bit to stay in this hotel and one of the main drawcards (apart from the location, more on which shortly) was the pool, as we were visiting in Kyoto's notoriously sticky summer.So it was frustrating to find that having paid a not insubstantial amount for the rooms (two twins, for a family of four) we were...

Have a convenience store inside the hotel. Near to Keage metro station, but seems too dark to walk from the metro station to the hotel... More

Yes, the hotel might be a bit old fashioned but it is very grand! The service in this hotel is excellent, there seems to be someone at every corner of... More

... if you read the reviews below. This is a huge, a bit old-fashioned hotel a little bit away from the center. The public areas are big, there are many restaurants and some shops. It's really a conference hotel. Sometimes it's not easy to find everywhere, but luckily the Japanese staff is very friendly and helpful, as expected. The room... More

When we arrived at Kyoto station and asked the information desk how to get to The Westin Miyako - we were informed that they had a reception office right in the station.
