the hotel is located close to nanzenji temple, the zoo and the philosophers walk. the service is flawless and very friendly. the rooms are not modern but still well maintained and clean with enough space and a nice view. the shuttlebus is a plus.
"Expect more from Westin"
We had been staying at the Westin Miyako for the previous four times when we visited Kyoto. We were quite disappointed with the hotel during this trip. The room was decent enough, but the service standard was not what we would expect from the Starwood Group of Hotels. We are thinking of trying other hotels for our next Kyoto visit.
"Great service and quietness "
We stayed there 2 nights right after our arrival in Japan. We really appreciated the flexibility of the staff and the quietness of the place. We were upgraded in a big Japanese style room but as soon as we arrived we could here the elevator from the bedroom. We called the reception and were given another room on the highest level. We did not feel we were bothering them and an nice Italian lady, Paola, helped us to move our bags to our new room. We slept so well in this other big room; it was so quiet and the beds were really comfortable. We were also offered a good cake for our honeymoon. The hotel is located in a quiet area, closed to the "philosophy trail". It is a 25-minute-walk from Gion. The shuttle service from the train station was greatly appreciated and on the last day, we could collected our luggages at the train station after our morning trip to Nara.
"Older hotel, good condition"
Solid experience and comfortable bed, found it easy in and out. Good condition room, was sizable and nice bathrooms. Excellent water pressure in shower. Ate dinner off campus, but ate good breakfast in morning. Quiet rooms.
"Older hotel and a bit out of the way"
The Westin Miyako is a bit out of the centre of the city but they do provide regular shuttle to Kyoto station etc. The rooms are quite big but are quite dated. The one thing that drove me crazy was that they have these door frames in the bathroom that are only 6ft tall so I hit my head twice already!!!!! Staff is helpful. I probably will not stay here again unless they upgrade.
