The Westin Miyako Kyoto

4 star hotelSee nearby area

Lonely Planet review

This grande dame of Kyoto hotels occupies a commanding position overlooking the Higashiyama sightseeing district (meaning it’s one of the best locations for sightseeing in Kyoto). Rooms are clean and well maintained, and staff are at home with foreign guests. Rooms on the north side have great views over the city to the Kitayama mountains. There is a fitness centre, as well as a private garden and walking trail. The hotel even has its own ryokan section for those who want to try staying in a ryokan without giving up the convenience of a hotel.

Our independent authors have visited The Westin Miyako Kyoto and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Northern Higashiyama.
