We stayed here in May. Our room was a typical beautiful room at the westin. The location is a bit far from the city, but there is a shuttle. Food at the breakfast was the worst of all the places we stayed in Japan.Was really cold and not so tasty. Would probably stay closer to the center of the city...

We made bookings for a non smoking  room w/ 2 months in advance and were given a smoking room.  Concierge service was rude, guest relations desk was unfriendly and not professional at all. The buffet restaurant for breakfast was too full and the cleanness, food quality, presentation and taste was bad

I love Westin and I had heard good things about the Miyako hotel Kyoto. It is a legendary hotel that has played to host to world leaders, celebrities and other famous folk. Thus, I may have had higher expectations than I might have for other hotels. Which of course means, an average experience feels even worse. My disappointment began with...

The hotel might be considered a bit overpriced, but I thought it was worth it. Hotel is perhaps a bit tired, and past its heyday but I found it calm, clean, quiet, comfortable and decent sized rooms. Free wifi in the lobby but you have to pay hefty sum to use internet in your room - I didn't find it...

This is a budget hotel just like a budget airline. Everything is extra. 500¥ to use the pool for a hour, extra for the gym, 1500¥ for Internet. The room is small. The staff are unhelpful. When I complained they want to charge me a extra 3000¥ per day. All I can say is find another upmarket hotel that does...

This was my first time in Japan and we arrived directly from London to the Westin. At first you feel you are in a hotel that you could find in any city of the world, but when they start serving you is when you realised that the service is special. The staff was incredibly nice and efficient. Breakfast was incredible...

The location of the hotel and the service was good. But the room was very dated and small. I had expect more for the rate we paid. To use the pool we had to pay extra. The free shuttle bus to the train station was very convenient.

Walking from the hotel to Gion,the silver pavilion or imperial palace is possible,two out of three easy and the third walk is well worth the trouble.

As mentioned by another reviewer, this hotel is overpriced and in terrible condition. The lobby is nice enough, but the rooms are awful and dated.

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood 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.
