Kyoto Century Hotel

680 Higashi Shiokoji-cho, Shimogyo-ku, Kyoto 600-8216 - Map
I stayed in this hotel on my very first trip to Kyoto 17 years ago. Thankfully they have done some sprucing and upgrading. Still it has that certain old-world charm that's nice. The room was quiet even though it was on the train station side. It is also very convenient to the train station.

Kyoto Hotel Okura

"Atmospheric, central, and utterly likeable"
Verging in on 5-star level in many ways, this is a stylish and comfortable base in Kyoto. The lobby with its 2nd-floor balcony, grand columns and elegant staircase is gorgeous. The rooms are comfortable and stylish. I had a river view which was great, although I imagine the other views would be just as interesting. A thoughtful touch is a pamphlet placed on the coffee table, explaining items such as temples visible in the view. Extremely convenient location right by City Hall and a subway station. Walking or taking the subway to sights in Kyoto has its limitations, and taxis will be necessary sometimes. However, this location is among the best as a walking base, just to soak up the flavour of the city in general. The two restaurants on the 17th floor are almost as pricy as those in top Tokyo hotels ... but also equally excellent. The hotel stay itself, though, was very good value indeed, about the same price for three days as a single day in 5-star Tokyo hotels which the Okura runs very close. The 17th floor Orrizonte bar is also great for breakfast or a pre-dinner cocktail. The 2nd floor Chippendale bar is an English gentlemen's club oak-panel cliche and I loved it! For the post-dinner malt, heaven. The hotel's website uses the term "dignified" and actually, that is accurate. I would love to go back to this hotel for longer - and no matter what the length of one's visit, Kyoto itself always seems to reveal reasons for wanting to stay longer next time!

"Nice hotel"
Nice hotel close to shopping and food. Within walking distance to gion district and a few temples. Quick check in, English speaking staff, nice, clean rooms. Hotel showed a few signs of wear, but still very nice. Couldn't figure out why lights went on and someone was there within 3 minutes and showed us how to use it properly.

The Westin Miyako Kyoto

Keage, Sanjo, Higashiyama, Kyoto 605-0052 - Map
"Nice hotel, if not aging."
From what we were told, this hotel was once the gold standard of the city. Multiple US presidents had stayed there. No doubt once likely true, this hotel is in dire need of an update. When comparing it to other 5 star hotels around the world, it's obvious this hotel just doesn't hold up. We stayed in one of the nicer rooms and it was the equivalent of staying in a best western. There's no way it warrants the price tag it requests per night. That being said, the staff was very accommodating, the location was not remote and access to the heart of the city was easy and close by. The view from the terrace and the premium rooms was unparalleled and gorgeous. Overall with the friendly staff and great views it made for a great experience. If you want old school decadence, this is the place for you, if you are looking for any type of fancy hotel room or modernity, it might be best to look elsewhere.
