This is a huge complex and is spread out over a large site, it is well located and the staff are very pleasant, but it is bait of a rabbit warren and it takes a day or two to just find your way around. The Chinese restaurant is very good, and the coffee shop offers a good range of cakes...

I stayed at the Westin Miyako for 2 nights in January 2012. The hotel is conveniently located a 2 minute walk from the Keage subway stop, and also has a free shuttle service to and from Kyoto Station. The front desk staff is friendly and proficient in English, which is not always guaranteed in Japan. The rooms are clean, modern,...

The Westin Miyako is a behemoth of a hotel in Kyoto. Don't expect old world charm, etc. It's a large property with no soul. That being said it's extremely comfortable and the location is great. There are lots of restaurant choices with some great food. Our favourite part was the bikes that can be rented to explore Kyoto. This, my...

The biggest room that we saw in Japan exist in this hotel. It is the best one in Kyoto. I suggest you to have an early morning walk around the temples close to the hotel. Location is superb!

Photos of leaders/famous people who have been there gave it a feel of being a grand old hotel which was kind of nice. Our room had a beautiful view of the mountains and the city. You should ask for it though. The initial room appointed to us had no view. The hotel bar was great too -- had that nice...

I stayed here when I lived in Japan and was visiting Kyoto for a few days while my family was in town. The location is very good, you can walk to several shrines and temples, as well as great museums, nearby. Down the street there are some great little restaurants worth checking out- delicious food! They also have a really...

Great place to end our trip. Hard to find with GPS though. Took us to the back roads and walking route. Charged ¥1000 for carpark though. Good access up to reception via escalator from carpark. Free shuttle to town in 5mins but ends at 8pm. Then you need to take taxi or subway ¥210 for two stops back to hotel....

Stayed at the Westin Miyako Kyoto for 4 nights and it was a great home base for exploring Kyoto as well as Osaka. Kyoto is a little difficult to explore due to the lack of subways and trains and the congested traffic so no matter where you stay, expect to spend quite a bit of time traveling between all the...

I was given an old room for this stay. Small, cramp, totally unlike other Westin properties I've stayed in. The bathroom was alright, but I was expecting much better. Everything was clean and the hotel service staff were generally pleasant, but the room was pure letdown. The location was so so. There was a shuttle bus to Gion and Kyoto...

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.
