Stayed 5 nights as Westin is my favorite chain with SPG. Was quite disappointed of the standards. The breakfast was acceptable but a bit cheap compared to usual Westin standard. The room and bathroom was average. The service was ok but needs to improve their English. Not really at Westin standard. Note that noise from room above was heavy and...

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...

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...

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.

This is an efficient and nice hotel that gives you a view of Kyoto. Some great temples nearby and the shuttle bus brings you to the station and has two stops on the way. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed the hotel but it did not excel. It is very efficient, the food is fine, the lounge has great...

This hotel is in a leafy part of Kyoto compared to the hustle bustle near Kyoto Station so a more relaxing feel. At close look you will see the hotel is in need of refurbishment. Our room size was adequate but furnishings dated and the mattress in need of replacement. Not up to Westin standards. On the positive side, the...

Spent two nights here at the Westin Miyako Kyoto - it was a very nice hotel. We lucked out and had a upgrade to the room for preferred starwood guests - so our room had a private garden balcony with city view :) The breakfast buffet was only okay, very crowded and selection was decent. I would recommend going to...

My mom and I moved to this hotel after stayed one night in Hyatt Regency Kyoto. Didn't like the Hyatt, small room with minimalist decor, maybe they're trying to interpret the Zen spirit in Japanese culture. However I'm traveling and a spacious bathroom, comfortable bed and convenient location are essential needs. Westin fulfilled all my needs. Right at the corner...

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
