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...

The hotel is located just in the Kyoto Station so it’s super convenient to anywhere no matter in Kyoto or other cities. Think about it, after a long day travel, you can go back to your room directly after getting off the train or bus without any more walk! As a landmark, it’s nearly impossible for you to be lost...

First stay in Kyoto and this is a great spot. Believe the reviews the train station is an amazing location. The hotel is modern and clean but with a Japanese flair such as wood floors in the bathroom and Japanese style lighting in the rooms. The central location is perfect for touring and though the restaurants in house are pricey... More

So conveniently located, spacious, and luxurious all in one. Am very pleased to have picked this hotel right in the Kyoto Station which is so modern and awesome! The shopping, restaurants, trains, buses and cabs are all right there! The hotel lobby with soaring ceilings is very impressive. The optional Japanese/Western buffet breakfast is so worth it. Our room is... More

We had read how early arrivals rarely get their room. This was our case ay 11am, but not wholly unusual at any hotel at this time. We had a bike tour in the afternoon and when we returned the bags were in our rooms waiting. It was clean modern and perfectly located. A shopping mall underneath, the main train station,... More

We stayed at Hotel Granvia during our three-day stay in Kyoto and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is SO conveniently located right next to the major train station in Kyoto, as well as a main bus stop hub. The Skinkansan also stops at the train station right outside of the hotel so we did not need to hail a... More

If you plan to use Kyoto as your hub to visit Kansai areas and all their attractions, there is no other convenient place to stay than the Hotel Granvia. It sits on top of the JR Kyoto Station which serves both the Shinkansen and regular JR trains. This is not the case in many stations such as Osaka, Kobe, or... More

We used this hotel as a base while visiting Kyoto and surrounding cities such as Osaka, Nara, Hikone so for this reason we appreciated being within the station complex. The rooms were fine, nothing special, and despite the number of people staying in the hotel, we had good service. At the end of a long day of touring we appreciated... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. I booked this hotel online through United. The process was fine and the hotel looked great. We took the Shinkansen from Hiroshima to Kyoto. It was great that we could just get off the train and walk to our hotel and not have to worry about getting a taxi etc. We were about... More
