Like someone else said about this hotel, this really is the perfect place to stay in Kyoto. The rooms are very lovely, clean, modern bathroom, and being right at the train station, is wonderfully convenient to take a train, bus or to catch a taxi. We had a night view room, which was great to be able to look over... More

I visited kyoto many time, this time I was just passing by for one night so decided to stay in the station. This hotel is definitely not what I expected. It is absolutely massive wrapped around the very modern station. It was so big it was taking me 2 minutes to walk from the elevator to my room which was... More

I've stayed at this hotel severe times. It is conveniently located right inside the Kyoto Station. So, it's the most convenient hotel for foreign visitors with heavy luggages visiting Kyoto from Tokyo by Shinkansen or from Osaka Knsai Airport by Haruka express. If you visit Kyoto for short-term, you will find that your time is the most precious and you... More

The best part about the Granvia is its wonderfully convenient location right inside Kyoto Station. It's really easy to find--once you come out of the station look to the large escalators on your right, go up one floor and you're there. You can't beat it as far as being centrally located to quickly catch a subway, taxi, or train to... More

We visited Kyoto in May 2015 and stayed 3 nights in hotel Granvia. It was truly an amazing experience primarily due to its location which is Kyoto station itself. In fact all transport hubs be it taxis, buses, local trains and the Shinkansen are located ion the ground level ( while the hotel starts from the second level) and therefore... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. Right in the heart of Kyoto Station, this hotel is ideal for first time visitors to Kyoto. For those who arrive by train, there are signs that point the way towards the hotel and if you need to get any provisions, there is an Isetan right next door as well! Check-in... More

I stayed at this hotel for 8 nights at the start of June. The hotel was fine - clean, comfortable and affordable. Bed and bedding was great - probably among the best of the ones I've stayed around the world. The choice of restaurants and food was great but needs to be placed in the context of this hotel being...

Good location.. Close to shopping center and food.. Good service.. Quiet (even though on top of busy station).. Rather affordable, considering its class and location. Definitely will stay again in the future..

This my x visit to Kyoto. Last year I was unable max a reservation here and instead stay at the Granvia in Osaka instead. Next trip I will try to stay at a Hotel in or near Gion. Anyway, I have a regular room with no meals. Which is what I wanted. If it matters was on the 8th floor... More

This hotel is convenient in that it is in Kyoto station, however it is difficult to find when you arrive by the bullet train from Tokyo. The room was comfortable with free WIFI. We purchased the breakfast package for 2000 yen per person per day. If you paid at the restaurant it was 2200 yen. From the hotel we took... More
