"Shocked this is a 5 star"
Let me preface this by saying i just stayed at a 4 star in tokyo where the rooms were much better. Im staying in a solo room which is reminds me of the rykoan. Room is tiny and ac doesnt have a temp conrol only low medium or high . The way the bed is set up , the vent is right across me making it much colder that it should be . I probably eould not recommend unless the other rooms are better
"the perfect Kyoto experience"
My daughter and I spent an idyllic 4 days at the Westin Miyako. Our rooms were extremely comfortable and spacious. The bathrooms were sparkling clean and up to date. Japanese toilets are quite an experience (good!). I didn't know there would be such beautiful grounds surrounding the hotel. A short climb to an dreamlike Zen garden a few steps from the building. The breakfasts included were huge and ranged from traditional Japanese to Chinese to Hallal to Continental. We had drinks in the Moonlight Bar, watching the sunset over the hills.. I can't imagine a better way to experience Kyoto. O Fox
"Wonderful Staff.....Loved Kyoto"
We loved our 13 nights in Japan.....the highlight of our trip being Kyoto where we spent five nights and could have enjoyed another night or two. We occupied room 1323 which was a corner room, Perfect combination of time in Japan would be 3 nights in Tokyo, 5 in Kyoto (side trips to Nara and Himeji Castle), 2 in Naoshima and 2 nights in any other place of your choice....we were in Hiroshima and a Miyajima which were enjoyable The room had a small entry hall with mini-bar cabinet including a pitcher, coffee maker, glasses, coffee cups and small bowls. A dresser was provided with three very small drawers. Furning included a desk, desk lamp, excellent desk chair sofa with a floor lamp , coffee table, twin beds, 2 night stands, good reading lights, excellent air conditioning, A very pleasant room of 30x13 feet. Excellent flat panel T.V with some channels in English. The bath room had a separate shower and tub area with an excellent shower....wall mounted soap, conditioner and shampoo.....so much better than providing little bottles of these items There is a single sink within the cabinet....A comb, nail file, shower cap, hair dryers, unlit magnifying mirror, excellent/plentiful selection of towels ....... all combined to make a very comfortable bathroom.. A nice and adequate breakfast was included. Service in the hotel was outstanding including the concierge desk which provided a great deal of information prior to our arrival and while we were at the hotel Maid service was excellent. The hotel was a bit out of the way,
"Very relaxing "
Very relaxing stay at the Westin. Close to metro stop from Kyoto but far walking from the rest of Kyoto. The grounds are very nice, nice walking paths and very relaxing rooms. As always in Japan, very very lovely staff.
Great hotel with beautiful traditional room and excellent breakfast! The traditional wing is really beautiful, it's antique building and super well maintain, the garden will amazed you! and one night is not enough!
