Stayed here with the family for 3 days and found the hotel very comfortable. Rooms slightly dated but clean, comfortable and quiet. Nice views over Kyoto from the balcony. Tried the restaurants in the hotel and all good although a little pricey. Hotel is a taxi ride from the station and Gion but walking distance to many tourist sites and... More

Very close to the main sites and very quiet at night. The nearest subway is a few minute walk, so it's very convenient for going into town (please note: the surrounding area has very few dining options at night, so you need to get on the train and within a few stops you're in town). Although certain areas of this... More

Seems the hotel could use some tender loving care and a detail focus, but overall still has great bones. The tennis court a good example of run down. Not in town itself, but the location still very good for historical sites and walkability. Downtown is not far away this is not a large area to do the tourist stuff. Our... More

The hotel is slightly dated however it has a very homely Japanese feel about it. We opted to stay in a traditional Japanese room where you sleep on futons/tatami and get to experience the bamboo bucket bath. Yup, when in Japan live like the Japanese. The room has a small rice paper sheet door that opens up to natural lighting... More

My entire hotel experience was tarnished by concierge trickery. I usually put enormous amount of effort into researching restaurants wherever and whenever I travel; this time unfortunately, staying only 36 hours, I had not done so. I asked the concierge to reserve for me the best Sushi and Kobe beef restaurants in Kyoto for my two consecutive nights. They told... More

This is a large hotel which looks a little austere from outside, the slightly elevated site helps give many rooms nice views over the city or towards the mountains. Service is very good as expected for a Westin / Starwood group hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and mostly well equipped. It takes a bit of time to find your... More

The room was lovely, separate sitting n bed area divided with rotating plasma screen unit, which was quite cool. Spacious n great view to the mountain behind. Walking distance to the city centre, however the subway was around the corner from the hotel lobby. Free shuttle buses to and from Kyoto main railway station and a few other subway stations... More

We stayed here as a family in September for 6 days whilst on holiday. It is a large hotel for sure, but its design and location are such that it has the feel of a smaller, luxury hotel. The reception area is welcoming and the check-in process is managed with friendly, Japanese efficiency. When we arrived at 11am I really... More
