The Hotel Grandvia in the Kyoto Station is a very beautiful modern hotel. You never leave the station. it is so easy to come and go, to get buses, cabs and the subway.
The 15TH floor is a nice place to be as you have your own concierge to help with your stay in Kyoto. We booked an English speaking taxi driver for five hours to tour the some of the many shrines. The whole thing was taken care by the great ladies at the concierge desk on the 15TH floor. You can relax in the guest lounge with nice views while enjoying some coffee or tea drinks with some little treats.
The hotel has some of the best body wash, makeup removers etc... That I've ever used in a hotel.
We had breakfast included , it was quite the international buffet, something for everyone.
They had fresh carrot juice from the biggest carrots that I have ever seen, really!
If you want to tour Kyoto and be in total comfort, this is the hotel for you. The rooms were large like western hotels not like the typical smallish Japanese ones.. Beds were very nice with quality linens and a great sleep, our view was of the city, quite! You might get a discount with your JR rail pass, check it out.
