I stayed at Kyoto Grand Hotel for three nights for a convention happening in the convention center. Since I left to register at the last minute, most of the other hotels were already sold out.
The hotel room was nice, but it was a little bit outdated. I'd say the bathroom needs some remodeling.
The hotel site says they offer a complimentary shuttle within a three mile radius of the hotel. I was only able to use this complimentary service 1 out of 3 times I needed. One time they told us they were busy and another time they told me that they only did a 2 mile radius when I asked to go to the convention center and couldn't take me there.
I also had problems with the Internet on my first night and couldn't use it to find a restaurant close to the hotel. So I asked their "concergie", i.e. front desk, for suggestions for a nice restaurant not very far. They ended up sending me to a restaurant that was already closed and they even gave me the wrong address. Ended up going back to the hotel since the cab driver couldn't suggest anything and had dinner there - the food was horrible (Rendezvous). The hotel doesn't have anything close by and is not safe to walk around at night.
They have a complimentary fitness center. It's just Ok. It's very small and the treadmill is kind of old, already tearing.
In a matter of one month, the ranking of this hotel has already dropped from 54 to 60.
