Fabulous hotel, great location, impeccable service, and spacious, stylish room. Great attention to detail. Hotel Granvia has great amenities and numerous dining options both in the hotel and around the adjacent station and theater. A friend had recommended The Thousand as an alternative - which I visited and was underwhelmed. This was my second stay at Hotel Granvia and definitely plan to return!

The hotel is located within the Kyoto Central Station, and looking out of the lobby, the view is quite breathtaking as there stairways in the structure lead 5 or 6 stories up! And one looks down onto the hustle and bustle of a big station. The location is perfect for any activity in Tokyo, and every cab driver knows Hotel Granvia! As for the room itself, we were only staying one night, so we treated ourselves to a very special room, double bed and lots of room to spread out (unlike our room in Tokyo). All in all, a great place to stay.

Only one thing is that too far from room to elevator. It’s a really good hotel to stay! Always come back!! Thanks Orbitz!

Great hotel in a fantastic location. So easy to get around since it is right at Kyoto Station. The only reason I didn’t give it a perfect rating is that you have to pay to use their gym facilities. It should just be included.

The property was in the perfect location above Kyoto station. Isetan dept store is right below with lots of shops and food. It's a very convenient location to stay at if you want to save time walking from hotel to train station. The rooms were clean but furniture could use update.

A very nice hotel in a cannot-be-beat, terrific location for transportation access. The hotel is connected to the train station which is an architectural marvel with fabulous shopping and some excellent restaurants. Rooms on the 14th and 15th floors have been renovated (we stayed on the 14th). They were pleasing and very clean, but not necessarily 5-star elegant. Truly terrific service -- the concierge desk staff are simply fabulous.

The hotel was located in the station where the Shinkansen stoso

Good hotel, super central, just massive. Appreciate their level of service and how spacious and clean our room was.

Love this beautiful hotel located in Kyoto station, very nice room, great breakfast and easy to go every where! We definitely will come again, thanks Orbitz!

Great location and value. High class hotel which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Convenient location Stayed for 2 days and room was average size companred to other Hotels in Japan. Air conditioning was working great and room felt clean.

Amazing service. Very attentive and worthy of 5 stats.

This is an excellent new hotel with attention to details. Room was large and with nice decor. The location can't be more convenient right next to Kyoto station. Aeon mall is 10-minute walk and the underground shopping and restaurants in Porta are also fantastic. Highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is centrally located (literally on top of The Kyoto Central Station), has great restaurants and cafés, gym and pool and excellent service. Wouldn’t go anywhere else...
