Fodor's Review

At the foot of the mountains, the Westin Miyako feels far from the city while retaining great access to downtown (the Keage subway stop is nearby). Picturesque temples like Nanzen-ji and Chion-in are also nearby, making sightseeing easy. You can get even closer to nature by taking advantage of the hotel's walking trail, traditionally manicured gardens, and indoor and outdoor pools. Annexes hold Japanese-style rooms with the feel of traditional ryokan lodgings.

Disappointed

With all the guide books recommending this hotel above all the rest it was an easy decision and my expectations were high for my first visit to Kyoto. The hotel was a disappointment in every respect. I would recommend it only to large tour groups, wedding parties and conventions. Definitely not for the traveler looking for superior comfort and extraordinary service. A decent hotel but unworthy of its lofty reputation and hefty price tag.

A great experience

This is a fantastic hotel! Our rooms had beautiful views and were perfectly appointed. The mountain in back of the hotel was fun to climb with my eight-year-old son. The health club and pool were spotless. The breakfast and dinner buffet were delicious. The service was excellent, delivered with plenty of style. Temples and the city zoo were a short walk away. I'd recommend this place to anyone.

Very good hotel, great service and location

Well just coming back from a 5 nights stay at Westion Miyako Kyoto in April 2005. Overall very satisfied, good location and excellent service as well as particular nice rooms ( Deluxe rooms with grand view) make this hotel an excellent choice, the Executive Level is an excellent choice if possible, we loved this hotel and will stay again in this hotel if in Kyoto

Far exceeded expectations!

Great location in the midst of NE kyoto, where many of the most important sightseeing are located. Gorgeous views, impeccible service, beautiful suites, great concierge lounge, the Westin 'heavenly beds', reasonable prices, and starpoints to boot! Who could ask for anything more? Even the room service menu was excellent and reasonable!! Far exceeds any other western-style hotel in Kyoto!

As Good as it Gets

What an improvement after the renovation! Beautiful, comfortable rooms, great location for walks in Higayashima, yet close to subway for getting around. Outstanding concierge service gets you places where unaided gaijin don't. A few days here will long be remembered.
