Editorial review:

This large, spread out complex sits atop the Higashiyama area, one of the best locations for sightseeing in Kyoto. The hotel is used to foreign guests. Rooms are clean and well maintained, however there have been rumblings amongst the guests that the standard rooms are becoming a big scruffy. The deluxe rooms are a major step up but come at a steep price as well. On the negative side, the breakfast room is dimly lit and there have been complaints of poor service.

Overview

This four-star hotel is located in the historic part of Kyoto, overlooking the ancient capitol of Japan, featuring everything needed for a comfortable stay.

There are many types of rooms, several business facilities, a lovely teahouse, a swimming pool and a wonderful Japanese garden.

Every guest room includes tea and coffee facilities and Wi-Fi.

The hotel has many restaurants, so don’t miss the opportunity to taste different national specialties.

Number of floors   11.  Number of rooms   502.

                                • Great location, beautiful hotel and nice decoration. Best concierge service ever, i complained to the manager was apologetic and the room size was alos very big for Japan Standard.

                                  Internet access was 300 yen for fifteen minutes and was inconvenient to boot.

                                  Old tv.

                                  The staff command of English is poor.

                                • Just outside the city centre, really handy for the subway into Kyoto and the Philosopher's path, the hotel was very friendly and helpful one of us fell ill. Staff were typical of the Japanese style of service and the room was newly renovated and had a nice bathroom. Lunch in the restaurant was very good, the concierge was quick in arranging two bycicles for us at the price of 1500 yen/person/day and the gym was adequate.

                                  The location was good, not great, the breakfast was overpriced, and very mediocre.

                                  The staff are incompetent and unhelpful.

                                  Staff a bit sterile and internet rung up a fee of over $15.00 a day.

                                  Not just the lobby and service is spotty. The rooms are quite run down and old.

                                  The rooms were absolutely tiny and the decor was dated, the wireless signal was very bad. The restaurants were ridiculously expensive at the westin.

                                  The location is beautiful and rooms are boring and tired. The restaurants are ridiculously expensive, even for breakfast.

                                  Not worth the price and incompetent unhelpful staff. The bathroom was even worse, restaurants close and open typical of Japanese hours was not convenient for late arrivals, the receptionist was very polite, and didn't take long to check in.

For the price you pay, i think you do get you paid for, the lobby is impressive and the service was stellar, the staff are very helpful. The beds are very comfortable and nice restaurants close by. Gardens are beautiful.

                                  Every little thing incurred extra charges and not worth the money. Air conditioning is old and the food is expensive.

                                • Without great views, excellent stay and on the bright side, the staff were helpful. The room was spacious, spotless.

                                  The location of the hotel is not convenient.

                                • Nice location, great hotel and the staff were helpful, friendly, courteous. The bed was amazing.

                                  Room was old.

                                • The highly efficient staff managed to get tickets to rare attractions and the hotel is in a great location for touring eastern Kyoto. My room class entitled me to use a very nice breakfast room.

                                • Overall, no complaints, extreamly helpful staff, and the location was no issue for us, the Westin Miyako Kyoto was excellent. The bathroom was large.

                                  No breakfast included the high room rate.
