Perfect location

Would recommend Tue, Oct 13, 2015
This hotel is in the perfect location for anyone who will be traveling by trains in Japan. Hotel is a little dated but conveniently located and very clean. Gym was nice. Hotel bar was absurdly expensive - there are many better places nearby.

Perfect location if coming from Tokyo on the bullet train. Hotel was very nice, if a little large and generic. Staff, particularly concierge desk, was very helpful.

Extremely good location and nice room

Would recommend Sat, May 3, 2014
Being at the Kyoto Train Station, this hotel is ideal. Kyoto transportation system is almost centralized from the Kyoto station. Hotel is clean, and extremely quiet in the guest floor. We had the room facing north, i.e., seeing Kyoto Tower right out from the window. That's a nice plus.

Dining

Across from the hotel is the department store on the other side of the train station building. For something to take back to your room, there is a supermarket at the basement; for something simple, there is a 'noodle alley' (many noodle shops) on the 10th floor; for something fancy, there are many restaurants on the 11th floor.

The very Best in all our visit in Japan

Would recommend Fri, Feb 28, 2014
Strategically located, since you can move from the station to ANY part of the city surroundings like Nara or other cities like Tokyo. Buses go from there to visit the town. I can not imagine a better service than received always friendly and efficiently almost perfect. I travel quite frequently for business and leissure around the world and certainly thi is a hidden treausure. Is a Pitty there are no other Gran Vias around Japan and the rest of the world!

Dining

Restaurants in second floor super affordable and very good in the 15 th the expensive obes

Can't fault the hotel. Check-in efficient and were upgraded. Staff gave all the information needed for our stay. Room very clean and comfortable with all amenties required. Room service excellent. A pity we didin't have time to take advantage fo the gym and pool. Great location above the station (but not noisy). Made the trip to and from Osaka airport very easy. Would definitelt recommend.

Beautiful hotel located right in the Kyoto train station, with views of Kyoto tower across the street and a pool as well. Room was was spacious and clean, and multiple restaurants etc right nearby.

Dining

If you go up long escalator and go to 11th floor there are many restaurants to choose from, some with unbelievable views of Kyoto, some requiring reservations.

Getting a little older but great location

Would recommend Thu, Aug 23, 2012
I stayed at this hotel several times before. When it was newer, the room condition was excellent. This past experience that I had staying with the hotel was in general still pretty good. Especially, I was making a quick 1-night stay in Kyoto for a business trip, and was taking the express Shinkansen train between Kyoto and Tokyo. You couldn't find a better location than Granvia Hotel for an on-the-run business traveller, as the Hotel is right there in the same complex of the Kyoto train station, with an easy access to the gates of the train station that connects with the express train, the JR train, the local train and also the subway. The station is right in the heart of Kyoto. Within 10-minute ride on the subway, you will be visiting the amazing and always crowded Kyoto downtown shooping district. Or, if you have very limited time for a qucik but nice dinner or breakfast, you will find the Isetan shopping mall right next to the Hotel in the same train station complex, with more than 50 restaurants under this gigantic mall, which has probably the longest escalator, inside any mall in the world, that goes all the way up for 11 floors. It is an amazing scene just by looking at this unbelievable escalator. Well, if you have not yet stayed with this Hotel, I would suggest to try it for yourself. Another good thing is that its room rate has been somewhat reduced to a very reasonable range, as there are a few new and wonderful hotels recently developed near the shopping district.

Convenient location in a very nice hotel

Would recommend Tue, Jul 10, 2012
Being right in the train station made arriving and departing Kyoto very easy and saved cab fares. City buses depart from the station and with the all day pass (500 yen) one can go antwhere. The station provides diverse and reasonably priced eating options. The only thing the hotel needs is wi-fi.

Dining

Wonderful food hall in the dept. store in the station.

Wonderful for sightseeing!

Would recommend Mon, May 14, 2012
The location of this hotel was marvellous! We arrived late at night at Kyoto railway station from Osaka airport and were immediately in the hotel! It was very quiet (despite being a part of the railway station) and we had a wonderful view of the trains coming in and out of the station, as well as the city. The next day we went out the station door to find all the tourist buses waiting for us. You can buy a day pass for all the buses for 500 yen at the little bus ticket office. It also has a bakery where you can buy coffee and something to take with you for a snack.
