We stayed at Hotel Granvia for 5 nights on our trip through Japan. This hotel was amazing, the staff was extremely friendly and everyone greeted us every time we passed by. We had a King sized bed in our room, very clean and spacious. There were many amenities the provided every day from toothbrushes to body lotions, they even had free house slippers!
I'd have to say the best part of this hotel was the location. You just can't beat being attached to Kyoto Station (JR). Walk out of your hotel down the escalators and catch a train to anywhere!
There were 3 shopping centers right in Kyoto station located directly below and attached to the hotel. The Cube, Isetan, and Porta. So many food options as well as general shopping. You just can't beat it.
After a long day of exploring Kyoto or nearby towns to just hop off the train and be at your hotel's doorstep is priceless. It makes it so much easier to explore and to stop off at your room for a quick change of clothes before going out for the night.
Would recommend this hotel for any type of visit in or near the Kyoto area.
