The hotel is located outside of downtown Kyoto, but conveniently next to the subway station. They also offer complimentary shuttle bus to Kyoto station. Room is clean enough but the interior is not quite Westin style. It is modest and plain. And the bathroom is a little tight. Bed is comfortable and the night is quiet at least for the...

We visited Kyoto for the Lantern Festival which was very impressive. The Westin is around the corner from the subway which was very convenient for getting around. It's also very close to two temples which we quite enjoyed. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Furnishings could use some updating, but they were acceptable. Definitely recommend staying here in Kyoto.

At the back of the Westin, they have a beautiful traditional set of tatami rooms with a lovely garden on the side of a mountain. You can walk along a winding path up the mountain for a scenic view of Kyoto. A quiet contemplative setting. Bev

A very comfortable bed - clean, tidy with a nice bathroom. Delightful staff, nothing was too much effort. There was a pool which unfortunately you had to pay for - they didn't mention this in booking.

The room was well appointed with a good bed. The restaurants were good. I strongly recommend the Chinese restaurant which was excellent. Service was impeccable throughout the stay. I found the breakfast buffet to be ok but certainly not up to the standards of some on the Rim. There are some nice walking trails around the hotel including a nice,...

Great location for walking Kyoto. Also nice restaurant for breakfast. Friendly staff. Shuttle will take you to / from the train station, so this makes a nice overnight trip out from Tokyo. It's an easy walking distance to several shrines.

It's a nice hotel to stay in Kyoto. Staff were very friendly and responsive during my stay. The room was clean and tidy.. It's advisable to take city view room if you are planning to stay longer and would like to enjoy the evenings or early morning with a cuppa with better view..

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.
