Stayed here 3 nights. Location is awesome, opposite the JR station! Its a bit tricky to make sure you get out of the station on the right side but there are plenty of signs in English and the Japanese people are always willing to help. Rooms are super clean and the size is OK for japan standards. Used the luggage storage as we arrived early by train..this was done very professionally. Staff are very welcoming and professional. This is certainly the location you would want to stay at in Kyoto if you want to be in the middle of everything with transport, food and sight seeing options in abundance. Use the subway and bus stations ( which are very close) to get to all of Kyoto's best sites which are scattered all around this beautiful city!

So the perks of this hotel - Great location, friendly staff, good food at the breakfast buffet in the morning.

I do not know if all the rooms are like this but we really struggled with mold/mildew smell in our rooms. They moved me twice because I have a severe allergy to mold and I could not breathe in two of the rooms. I noticed there were dry watermarks along the wallpaper which indicated there was water damage at some point. They switched me to a different side of the hotel and I did not have any problems there. The rooms felt much like a dorm but that's okay. If you're out and about exploring Kyoto and use the rooms to sleep in you're alright. The staff was very accommodating and understanding when they had to switch my room. The employee actually stayed with me when we got to the second room to make sure I was going to be comfortable.

The location is very convenient as it is located by the train station, very close to the bus station. The train station includes a mall and lots of restaurants.

Rooms are small as with all Japanese hotels, but at least foreigners can fit in, not like the real Japanese hotels where Japanese lodge

It has a nice sky bar

Room Tip: By the station side, there could be an entertaining view, yet more noisy. So if you prefer absolute quietness, avoid it. Corner higher rooms at the station side are better

If you arrive by train and are tired from continuous travel for 24 hours, getting out of the Kyoto train station on the right side may be your greatest challenge. Depending on the line on which you arrive, you may need to escalate over the rails and back down to street level. The problem is that with all the shops and levels, the signage does not consistently point you where you need to go. The Hachijo West exit is the one you want to take. If you are on a level with no signs specifying that exit, change levels and follow signs for Exit 7, or West exit or JR West exit until you see signs for Hachijo West exit. This exit is opposite the bus Porta and subway terminals that are on the east side. On one level following the Pedestrian Walkway will take you to the signage that you need. As you approach the Hachijo West exit there are stairs down to the right and an escalator to the left. The stair side is the direction you need to go but if you need to take the escalator with your bags you can do so and then turn 180 degrees for a long block walk to where you will see the New Miyako Hotel sign high up on a large white structure just across the street.

The New Miyako Hotel was our home for six lovely days and nights. We had a run of the house room in the older section and found it sufficiently large and pleasant. The hotel was very competently run and extremely convenient to train, bus and subway. The concierge was very helpful. The bell desk loaned us great see-thru plastic umbrellas. We had our own internet access device so the complaints by others about slow internet access in the evening did not apply to us. The device was handy when we were out on the street because it was portable and we could look up maps and track our progress on buses so we knew where and when to get off. We didn't eat at the hotel but did pick up food at the train station for breakfast and dinner and the price there was right. Nice experience over all.

Room Tip: Our room in the older section on the fourth floor looked out over the train station and we could see the Shinkansen trains go by but there was little to no noise to awaken a jet lagged individual. Even located just by the elevator shaft area, we heard few revelers in the halls which we attribute to the local customs of politeness.
Stayed: November 2012, travelled as a couple

This is a very nice hotel conveniently located across the street from the south side of Kyoto Station. Rooms are very nice, with special mention of the the tea set for brewing tea. There are several restaurants in the hotel. But you also have the choice of restaurants immediately across the street in Kyoto Station. It is within a ten min walk to the three temples Nishi Hongan-ji (西本願寺), Higashi Honganji (東本願寺) and Tō-ji (東寺). Since it is across the street from Kyoto station, it is easy to plot out the routes to other Kyoto attractions.using public transport. The staff is very helpful to give directions to attractions. Further directions are available from the tourism office inside the train station.
I was booked this hotel by the popular JTB Sunrise Tour and this hotel was apparently a central hub for their tours organised by a desk early in the morning in the lobby. Many local tours to Kyoto, Nara and Osaka departs from the hotel for which one can conveniently sign up.
The hotel is easily accessed via a train from the airport to Kyoto Station

Room Tip: If you fancy watching bullet trains arriving the Kyoto Station (see photos from this review), ask for a room facing the Kyoto Station
