    Wonderfully bright, clean property with large Wesern style rooms. Staff was typical of the Japanese style of service... polite and nicely attentive.

    Restaurants close and open typical of Japanese hours which was not convenient for late arrivals. I could not find anything open in the area. I arrived at 10 PM. It would be nice if at least the hotel had some late dining options, not all of us are Japanese.

    Superb

    Free shuttle bus to and from Gion and the Kyoto station. Friendly and helpful staff. Very close to subway station. Nice restaurants close by.

    Having to pay to use the swimming pool - this should be free for hotel guests.

    Superb

    This hotel is so good for relaxing and watching the green mountains surrounding the hotel. Restaurants are so good in hotel as well. Best thing is the free shuttle bus thats goes to more than one place in city including Kyoto Train station.

    Fabulous

    Location was great. Room clean. Great bedding. Good coffee.

    Need wireless in the guest room, not just the lobby. Should not charge to use the fitness room or pool as prices are already high.

    Very good

    The Westin Miyako Hotel Tokyo has a grand history - and it was great to see the images of past famous guests and old photos of the hotel itself. The hotel is well located on the edge of town - quite near a few of the more interesting sites. We received an upgrade on arrival - so had quite a large bed. The hotel was very friendly and helpful when one of us fell ill.

    The bar was open only for limited hours and had a steep cover charge for guests at peak evening times (due to a live band). Other options for chilling in the hotel itself - other than the restaurants and the foyer - were limited.

    Fabulous

    I did not like the breakfast buffet. There were two price choices yet everything was co-mingled.

    Guest rating

    The location was good for my purposes. There is a regular shuttle to jr Kyoto station and Keage subway is 2 minutes away.

    They charge extra for everything. This is irritating and petty as their room prices are quite high. The exercise room is very small with one of two treadmills inoperable. If you want to use the gym and pool, you have to pay twice, and don't leave, or you will have to pay again! There is a fee for room internet which isn't wifi. Not what I expected for a four star international quality hotel.

    Superb

    The Westin Miyako has great facilities, pool and work out area, plus its own personal route to shrines in the area in Kyoto. Our room was large, not massive, but it was great to have English language television channels.

    Every little thing incurred extra charges. Internet rung up a fee of over $15.00 a day and it cost another $6 to use the swimming pool. Ridiculous. It all should have been included in the room fee. I have never had such nitpicky charges in a first rate hotel.

    The bus service. Room size.

    Room was old. Staff are sticky. Not flexible. No free Wifi. Small hotels have that thrown in. Bicycle rental is expensive and time not flexible. Should have hourly rental or at least have hourly extensions. Staff have stiff upper lips. Too formal till the point of unfriendly.

    Very good

    Reasonably priced and well equipped rooms and facilities. Commend the bird walk trail around the back hilltop.

    Not a great location but the shuttle bus to the station helps. Pretensions to luxury class mean the public areas are dull, with expensive catering.
