We stayed ”Triple room “with3”(11F). The location is very good! Higashiyama area is full of nature and quiet, but it is easy to access to central Kyoto city using the shuttle bus. The rooms are very wide and the beds are fine with heavenly bed, Westin style. and The night view is beautiful. The only thing is that the bathroom... More

We stayed here for 4 nights & it was truly the Japanese hospitality which we had heard of. The property is wonderful and it is located in the middle of natural surroundings. The staff is extra courteous and food quality very good. Love to visit again.

We stayed in the executive room for 2 nights and the room is very spacious even with the extra bed added. The beds are very comfortable which recharge us after a long day of sightseeing.

We spent our last 3 nights of our Japan trip here at Westin Miyako, which confirmed to be in a very good location to visit the myriad of temples and shrines which are scattered along the hills north-east of Kyoto (were the Philosopher's Path can also be found). We booked a superior room and were assigned (at 3 PM sharp)... More

The Westin Kyoto was an excellent location. It was a little too stuffed shirt for my appeal, though everyone was absolutely great. The housekeeping staff on through ladder was wonderful. The Restaurant staff when we hosted 19 individuals for dinner went out of their way as we grew from 8-10 to 19 people. They were great right down through reserving... More

While the Westin Miyako Kyoto is not quite as up-to-date as many of the other Westin properties in Japan the hotel is in a great location on the outskirts of town, offering amazing views of old Kyoto. The staff was wonderful and the room was comfortable.

The location of the hotel is ok, close to an underground station but nothing else around here. It is possible to walk to a few temples. The check in was nice, the reception guy was really welcoming and friendly BUT there is a very rude lady at the concierge desk, she cannot do her job well at all. We asked... More

This is a great hotel to explore Kyoto. We stayed in it for 4 nights during our first stay in Japan and it was an easy start to get to know the country and city.

Staying in City Center

Neighborhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
