Staid with my family of 4 for two nights early June in this premise. Must say the location is excellent and easy to find. It's right between Karasuma stn and Karawamachi stn, and has a Matsumoto Kyoshi drug store right down stairs. Around the neighbor, you can find many department stores, restaurants, and the famous Nishiki Market. Our standard room comes with two comfy twin beds, a very nice massage shower facility, and a sofa seat, which are all nicely decorated with good ambience. They offer free MOD with a good selection of shows for kids to watch, and the beds are very comfortable with couple of soft and firm pillows to choose from. Their breakfast is superb, with both Japanese or Western set meals to choose from, and top up with all you can eat side dishes on the bar (bread, fruits, milk, coffee, etc). The Japanese breakfast is just amazing, with a drawer box layout with all kinds of small dishes to savor, while the western is equally detailed with cocktail style dishes laid on a 3 layer tea tray. They also offer afternoon tea and late nite rice with tea snacks free of charge, how bout that for a change! Then, the location is perfect for travelers who want to visit local department stores, the markets, and short walking distance to the Yasaka Shrine.
If you like to jog like i do, you can go straight north to the huge Kyoto Imperial Palace or northwest Nijo Castle, all very accessible and with few traffic during early mornings.
This is truly one of the best hotels i've every staid in Japan, and will recommend friends to stay here if they visit kyoto! I love this hotel!

Room tip: All floors and rooms are nice.

Excellent location, clean and functional, value for money. Given that hotel rooms in Japan are typically small, Grand Bach is no difference. However, they do take care of details such as a nice shower panel with adjustable shower jets to sooth and massage your tired body after a day of shopping and sightseeing. It has an excellent location, within walking distance to Nishi Market, Gion district and right smacked in the shopping street. Real value for money!

The hotel is nice with big rooms and close to the fish market and lots of shopping. Bus and train lines are close to everything.
There are lots of restaurants to choose from and in walking distance of some beautiful Temples.

My daughter and I recently stayed 3 nights at Hotel Grand Bach Kyoto. Our experience from beginning to end was terrific. The reception staff were kind and patient with the language barrier (my Japanese is minimal). We were so lucky to encounter the hotel concierge, Kyoko Kodama, who went out of her way to help us with maps, information, restaurant bookings, bike hire and endless tips. Kyoko's extensive knowledge made our short stay in Kyoto so much richer and enjoyable.We celebrated my daughters 28th birthday while there and Kyoko even made sure that was special. Thank you so much. We look forward to a return visit.
