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

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

                • 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.

                • 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 views are beautiful and and the location is very good and you can see a very nice mountain from this hotel. The service and rooms are excellent and the price in October was reasonable.

                  The staff are incompetent and unhelpful.

                • The location is good and the hotel is huge. Heavenly bed and heavenly bath are really excellent, the buffet is lukewarm at best.

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

                • I liked the location, next to a subway stop Spacious and old photos of the hotel itself. Some cool buildings and great Price. Responsive lobby staff, good service and concierge were incredibly patient and helpful.

                  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 public areas are pleasant, Kyoto is big and the staff are exceptionally helpful and service is very good all round. Hot tub are great, the continental buffet is unusually substantial.

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

                • The location is excellent, keage subway is 2 minutes away and the hotel concierge has good walking map, and good advice. There's a nice swimming pool, and the lobby area is impressive, rooms and service are flawless, the breakfast buffet is very large.

                  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.

                • Good location for walking tours, from the station is quite convenient and anyway, great hotel, I recommend highly. 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.

                • 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.
