Needs to be updated but good location and service
Reviewed 12 hours ago

The hotel has a nice location, right next to the subway, which makes it easy to get to places without relying on cabs. They also have a mobile concierge at Kyoto station - which is very useful to leave bags while sightseeing. they also have a shuttle from Kyoto station to the hotel. The property itself is a bit dated; however renovations are in progress. The lounge is not much of one but it has a nice view. Lots of nice little restaurants close by that are pretty reasonable.

Why is this a westin ?
Reviewed 1 day ago

This is an over 50 year old hotel. And looks like it. Worn and frayed. Rooms don’t even have empty drawers. The three tiny ones are filled with bathrobes etc. Bathroom is tiny and uncomfortable. The step up into the room is dangerous. Except for the gorgeous gardens, the hotel is charmless Again why is this a westin !

Perfect hotel choice for Kyoto!

The renovated rooms are beautiful. Honestly the best shower I've ever had - roomy shower space, incredible water power, multiple water sources (rain shower, hand spray on wall, foot wash) which can all work simultaenously. Ambient lighting in room, comfortable bed, space for storing clothes, very quiet. The concierge was so helpful in recommending restaurants and making reservations for us. They also directed us to a place where we could rent bicycles - a good way to see the temples (go early in the morning to avoid crowds). We love walking, and this location provided an easy walk to many of the more historically charming areas of Kyoto. Very nice to have a shuttle bus to/from the train station. I'd recommend this hotel and we will stay here again next time we are in Kyoto.

Large Hotel with Friendly Staff in an Old but Refurbished Building
Reviewed 1 week ago

The hotel is very large, located about 30 minutes's ride away from the train station. There are shuttles from the station to hotel, but it can accommodate only 25 pax. There are number of good restaurants in the hotel. Breakfast was average but got very crowded due to conference attendees. Staff throughout the hotel was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were of average size, clean with modern bathroom. The building is old but well refurbished. I was told some rooms are undergoing refurbishment.

Spacious Room

Visited yet again , BEAUTIFUL KYOTO - this time summer experience !!!!💐

Room was spacious but the furnitures (chairs) were rather old. Understand that the hotel has started renovations and in 2020 there will be an onsen in this property .

The shuttle service from the hotel to and from the Kyoto train station is really helpful.

Buffet breakfast spread was ok.. was surprised to see a Long Q as early as 7am..one has a Choice of having the traditional Japanese breakfast set or the international buffet..

This hotel has some ryokan rooms .. was tempted to try staying for a night but changed my mind.. as one has to get to level 7 to get to the Ryokan rooms .. if you come back late you need to walk pass a garden to get to your room.
For this , I wasn’t that adventurous as I came back very late most of the nights🙈.

I must say the Ryokan rooms are pretty though 🤔! And it gives you a different kind of experience staying in compared to the standard hotel rooms !

There is a convenience shop located at the basement of this hotel.. titbits are sold at a reasonable prices ..

The front desk staff were very helpful.
Having too many coins in my bag , I approached them to have my coins changed before heading back to Singapore.... without hesitation they changed!! BRAVO 👏

I would love to stay again in Westin Miyako. Hopefully the next time when I return, there are newer furnitures.

Thank you Westin Miyako for making stay an enjoyable one!
