Hotel Granvia Hiroshima
Ranked #2 of 123 Hotels / Ryokan in Hiroshima
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 30, 2014

A great central location, and despite being above the busy train station, there is hardly any noise. The rooms themselves are immaculate and comfortable, and the steakhouse on the 21st floor is a very good example of teppan and Kobe beef.

My only slight gripe is that the hotel's check in time is 2pm, so if (like us) you've had a long flight and arrived in the very early morning, be prepared to find things to do, as that 2pm deadline will REALLY drag by.

Stayed here for 3 nights the location is good in the train station it could be better signposted though,head for the Shinkansen exit and look for a smallish sign with a arrow pointing ,you go through a long corridor.plenty of reasonable places to eat in station,the airport limousine stops outside which is useful aswell.
Hotel lobby looks grand but the rooms don't match up I'm afraid! Very small no storage apart from a wardrobe we felt very cramped! They need updating as they feel very old and tired.there was an odd smell from the bathroom not sure about that one!breakfast was ok if you get there early as the food is hotter and there is more choice as in pastries as there were none on our first 2 days
We were a bit upset on our last night as we decided to have a drink in the bar on the 21st floor but no chance as they had a private party! They said try the main bar so off we went but were told we couldn't sit at any of the seats apart from the ones seated directly in front of the bar as they too were reserved !!we wanted a quiet drink in a comfy seat not much to ask when your a resident there! It became obvious the hotel caters to business men as about 14 came in to take their seats.
We didn't feel welcome and left soon after as did an American couple near us would I stay again answer is no

We only stayed one night in Hiroshima, but this hotel made it easy. Located right at the Shinkansen station i worried about the noise but it was never noticed. Restaurants located in hotel and Train station. Sight seeing bus stops right outside the hotel- which is free if you have a JR Rail pass. The staff was very friendly and helpful when we were looking for a place to eat, or the easiest sightseeing. The room was clean and nicely decorated.

apparently all the "Granvia" hotels are own by JR, no wonder there's always one next to the main JR station in each big city. The room is actually fairly big for Japanese standard. Room is clean, nice toiletries. Located right next to Hiroshima JR station, take the north exit!

We stayed in the Granvia Hiroshima while traveling and sightseeing with family. Although the rooms were small, the luxurious bathroom more than made up for it. It was a relaxing pleasure to soak in the deep tub after a long day of walking or hiking. The location right next to the main Hiroshima train station was quite convenient, especially because the station was full of good, inexpensive restaurants where we sampled local dishes like okonomiyaki.

This hotel does it all exceptionally well. The location is 1 minute from the shinkansen and is well marked. The JR scenic tour bus to the peace park stops right outside the main door. The staff are comfortable in English and their care and attention to your well being is impeccable. Lobby is a work of art in itself!!

We had a standard double room which was comfortable and large enough for our short stay. Cleanliness is absolute, great WiFi in the room. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Hotel Granvia was firm on their checkin time, but wonderfully located adjacent to the Hiroshima train station. The hotel is easily accessible, especially if you have a rail pass which allows you to cut through the turnstiles of the station without having to pay a fare. The rooms are spotlessly clean, totally quiet and had nice amenities. There are several restaurants of good quality and a convenience store (Lawson's) within a couple of blocks. I didn't try to the restaurants in the hotel; they looked a tad pricey, but catty-corner to the hotel are a couple of Japanese places on the second floor, we tried two and enjoyed both immensely. We also easily walked to Peace Park, though others might prefer to take the street car, which is also right out front.
The room might seem a little small but the beds were very nice and the bathroom is a decent size, with close to a full size tub. There are tempurpedic pillows (normal ones included in the closet) and lounge robes. I'd stay again and recommend to anyone.
