We chose this hotel for its location which was great. We arrived and left Kyoto by bulletin train and also took the train to Osaka as a day trip. The station itself also has a lot to offer in terms of shops and restaurants and more surprisingly the sky garden. The concierge also recommended some great restaurants near by (the... More

We stayed for six nights in July 2014 and we had a wonderful stay. The service and comfort were wonderful. We enjoyed our stay immensely. The location was perfect and central to our getting around Kyoto, right above the station and all the shopping.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights during our stay in Kyoto. It was actually the best hotel of our whole stay in Japan (we visited several cities). The location is just great: above the central train station of Kyoto (we were never disturbed by train noise which is surprising), next to the central bus station, next to a... More

We stayed here with our 14 year old nephew who is in a wheelchair. Overall we found the hotel felt very large and impersonal compared to other places on this trip. Staff were pleasant, so we're not criticising them, it was just impersonal. The buffet breakfast felt busy and was in a large westernised restaurant; it was busy so hard... More

I’ve stayed at Hotel Granvia Kyoto twice in the last ten years and found it excellent on both occasions. The hotel is part of the Kyoto station complex, which is an architectural wonder that includes the hotel, the station platforms, a department store and various bars and restaurants, all housed in an amazingly futuristic structure. This makes it very convenient... More

We always stay at the Hotel Granvia when visiting Kyoto. Since navigating the tourist sites in Kyoto is complex, even for those of us who speak fluent Japanese, the Granvia is optimally situated in Kyoto Station for day trips. Despite its central location, it is incredibly quiet, and has so many restaurants, you could stay without ever leaving the hotel... More

WE spent nearly a week at this delightful hotel, staff could not do enough for you, the rooms were above expectations, and the facilities were more modern and better than we have seen for some time. It is central to most of the downtown Kyoto shopping, food and being above the railway line very easy to access. WE wouold recommend... More

Hotel Granvia Kyoto is located right at the Kyoto Station facing the beautiful Kyoto Tower, with easy access to taxi, train, limousine to Osaka Kansai Airport, and not to mention a good department store Isetan and a few floors of eateries with ramen (noodles), yakitori (skewers), traditional Japanese cuisine, etc! Washroom and shower bath tub facilities average, but reasonable price... More

Enjoyed staying at the hotel. Right at the Tokyo station and easy access with metro to the city, restaurants, sight seeing. Enjoyed the traditional Japanese spa/pool. Have your comfortable shoes and be pared to walk. Hotel restaurants are a bit pricey but many dining options nearby. Quick metro ride to the city. We visited the Nishki market on daily basis....

We knew we made the right choice the moment we arrived by bullet train at Kyoto station, a masterpiece of new architectural design. I'm pretty picky about where I stay, but this hotel gets the highest marks I could give - a resounding 10, and here is why. We walked from the station into the beautiful hotel lobby expecting a...
