“Great location”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Again travelling for business does not give one the time to fully appreciate the surrounding environment however the New Miyako if nothing else(which there certainly is) is ideally located right across the road from the man Kyoto JR station. As with most things Japan, it is a little expensive in the hotel restaurants even just for coffee. No room service however a good assortment in the Vending machines on the ground floor in the South Wing if you get peckish in the early hours.

Room Tip: Request no smoking rooms if you are no smoker

You cannot get away from the smell of cigarette smoke unless you sleep with the window open and being right across the road from the main Kyoto train station this is not possible.
Seems very old, step up bathroom in the room, no joking, you can touch each side of the room without stretching.
Considered losing money on the booking to find a better hotel, but nothing available.
Only 1 English channel on the TV, free wired internet in room, or wireless in the lobby. Of a night time in room internet doesn't get you anywhere as I assume the whole Hotel is trying to use it. Gave up trying to use internet of a night time.
Bad news is we have 4 nights here.

Room Tip: ask if they have a non smoking floor!

Huge hotel located exactly in front of Kyoto train station, hence the ideal solution for people reaching Kyoto by train.

The hotel is quite old and it hasn't been recently refurbished. Service is fairly good, but you would expect more for the price you pay.

Wi-fi available only at the reception.. Very disappointing!

Good if you need just to stop in Kyoto for one night and you use train, but if you have to stay for a longer period for sightseeing I'd recommend to look for an hotel located closer to city centre

We spent 3 days in Kyoto..and we went by ourselves to many attractions in Kyoto,so we must choose hotel which has good location and easy access to any transportation in Kyoto,so we chose New Miyako Hotel.
New Miyako is in Hachijodori..it's across from kyoto station..very near..if you come to kyoto from osaka by jr,just walk to hachijodori side..and go to the right side of kyoto station..till the sign for crossing the road..
So many people in this hotel...so you can see lots of people in its lobby.
The room was quite small..but it had comfort and soft bed..
I really impressed of their service..especially their concierge..I forgot her name,but she had good English and told us about kyoto bus,number of city bus,where was the bus stop etc..
If you want to go to any attractions in Kyoto,just walk 5 minutes to the other side of the station and many buses there..and from any places,you can go by bus again to this main station..
And if you want to go to Tokyo by shinkansen like us,it's really easy...we could bring our huge luggage across the street,and go upstairs by escalator to shinkansen..just 5 minutes and very easy..

We chose this hotel since it was just across Kyoto station and we would be arriving late at night after landing at Kansai airport. We booked at the premier floor and got a spacious, clean, and well equipped room. It looked like the room was recently refurbished. The twin beds were very comfortable, a/c was fully functional, and the bathroom was spotless. I cannot comment on the wifi since I did not bring my laptop with me.

The service of the staff was good and they could speak basic English. The doorman (I did not get his name) was very friendly and we would always engage in some chit-chat everytime we left and returned to the hotel.

The property was just across the Kintetsu rail of the Kyoto station. Inside the station were numerous restaurants and shops where you could dine and buy stuff. In case you prefer to stay in the hotel, there was a souvenir shop and convenience store at the basement.

Moderate standard "no frills" hotel that offers clean comfortable rooms (with a capsule bathroom!) and a terrific location opposite Kyoto Railway Station. Like most mid to upper standard hotels in Japan eating in can be costly...walk across the road to the railway station and there are dozens of different eateries to try out. Helpful and friendly staff...would stay there again if it wasn't for the fact that that the in house Wi Fi was hopeless.

Facing the train station, cross the street, turn right. It's clean, reasonably cheap for Japan, and the service is excellent. That's the best compromise, specially for foreigners coming by train from Tokyo. Highly recommanded.
