All around a great place to stay.

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.
