New Miyako Hotel
Ranked #46 of 374 Hotels / Ryokan in Kyoto
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Good location, polite staff and convenient to the station. We were disappointed to find that wifi only worked in the reception area and only a limited number of wooden benches were available to sit on.

Stayed: October 2012, traveled as a couple

1. Location: just at back of Kyoto Station. Limosine Bus stop to Osaka Kansai airport is about 5 minutes walking distance.
2. There are many resturants, fastfood around, very convinient
3. Room is spacious, even with 3 beds compare to many other hotels in Japan.
4. It's a big hotel. So you might be in a long line waiting for check in.
5. No free wifi in room, only wired connection.
6. Great breakfast buffet, rich and hot.

Room Tip: I booked a premium triple room in Main building, seems south buiding looks newer.

Right across the Kyoto station, we stayed at a room in south wing, the room itself is quite nice but the bathroom is a bit small, wifi only available in the lobby. its free but you'll have to ask the staff for password.
The staff was very helpful, he helped us a lot as we were deciding which shrines to go for the day, and we didnt think of nijojo, he strongly recommend us to go and it was very worthy.

Kyoto station is so close - the hotel is just across the road. The station is amazing - it's massive. lots of shopping and great restaurants and even a theatre!

The hotel is massive. the vending machines are pretty crazy - they had one that would heat up food.

The staff are very helpful and a great bus tour leaves from the lobby.

very easy to stay in - the rooms are on the small side but they are nice.

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
