Great price for a great location”

The hotel is at a great location. It is location within 3 minutes walk from the Shijo-Omiya station. The NIshiki Market is 1-2 stops away. There is a tram station at the intersection that is direct line to Arashiyama Bamboo Forest. Kyoto station is a short bus ride away. There are multiple restaurants and food marts around. As mentioned by other reviews, the whole check-in process is digital. But if you follow the instructions in the email carefully, the whole process is a breeze. If you encounter an issue, there is a phone that connects directly to a staff to guide you along. The room is slightly small with sufficient space to only open one large luggage on the floor. But the bed was comfortable and all the necessary amenities provided in the room.

New hotel, new facilities and ok location”

The location is quite ok. Various bus routes just a minute away from hotel. In Kyoto you will be catching bus more than subway so access to a big bus stop is more convenient. few minutes walk to Shin-omiya stn which going directly to Arashiyama Bamboo forest. I didn’t use the train lines that much so depends where you go it will benefit you but 90% you’ll catch bus to shrines and temples in the city. The hotel is pretty new so cleanliness is good and facilities inside hotel are new also. Few limitations are you can’t leave your luggages at hotel itself because there is no reception desk there. The hotel check-in & out are done automatically on ipad. No actual staff presentation at hotel. They have their main office near Kyoto stn, if you need to drop off your luggage before/after your stay, you’ll need to pickup/bring luggage to office, quite inconvenient if you have few pieces. A friendly suggestion, should have communication app like Line, Whatapps to have quicker reply.

Modern Hotel”

Modern hotel with self check in. Location is not near Kyoto Station, but near Omiya Station and Shijo Omiya Staton. When travel to the hotel, they provide free shuttle bus from their office near Kyoto Station but they require reservation from their website. They also provide shuttle bus to nearby attraction in Kyoto, also need reservation in advance. Overall, the stay was nice and room was clean.

Satisfied”

The most important thing I want to say is: Do not confuse this property with other property with the similar name “Grand Japaning Hotel Omiya”. This property is the “Central” one. I first arrive in GJH Omiya, and was confused because I couldn’t find my room. Fortunately, in the unmanned reception desk, there was a map showing both properties, and after checking my email, I realized I entered the wrong building. Check-in is a bit complicated at first, be sure to follow the instructions correctly (check your email), or just come to the office in Kyoto Station for check-in and guidance. Room cleaning is only for those who stays more than 3 days. You should ask the office to change towel the day before. But if you forget like me, there is a free laundry room. (Bring your own soap, just in case the provided detergent is empty, and bring dictionary because the machine is all in Jap.) With such a reasonable price. I am satisfied with the facility, and the cleanliness. The building is also new. Defitely will stay there again (or other branches). However, I suggest avoid it if you hate the trouble of doing everything by yourself.

Cozy hotel at convenient location”

Traveled to Kyoto solo between august 7th to 14th. Decided to stay at Grand Japaning hotel. It was a very pleasant stay at a convenient location with local traffic to the most popular attractions right around the corner (both subway, train and bus lines), also easy access to central station. Nice staff and very clean and neat room. Big plus for the free smart phone one get to borrow from the hotel with unlimited access to internet, apps and other useful applications for your Kyoto trip. The only downside was that the free international calls only were to a few countries, but since I did not need that function for me it didn't matter that much.

Worth the price ”

Advantage : cheap , clean , laundry service provide for free and smartphone tourist guide for free (but I didn’t use because I can use my own handphone to search as well) , shuttle bus service is free (but this is not provide from the hotel to the tourist spot because you have to go Kyoto station they will only pick you up there so I rather go tourist spot by own transport if go to Kyoto station is more expensive than if I direct go to the tourist spot some more is more further . Free luggage storage (same thing as above , if you want to keep your luggage you may have to go Kyoto station also they won’t allow you to put your luggage in the hotel which you stay) Disadvantage : from check in until check up there is “self service “ ,there is no stuff at all if you seek for help it maybe take time for you because in the front desk only a phone there for you ( working hour is 8am to 10pm). If you stay more than one night there is no room cleaning service so you have to reuse everything for your stays (I got request to refill the shampoo shower gel because when I check in the shampoo everything is only left half and toothbrush also provide two but no one came)

Nice hotel”

The hotel is very new and clean. Everything is convenient. We checked in using tablet and got passcode to access our room (no need to keep the room key/ card). There are laundry and drying machines in the hotel which we could use for free. Location wise, not too close to the tourist spot, but still within walking distance to the shopping districts and pontocho alley. The only downside is we could only store our luggage at their main office nearby Kyoto station before check in or after check out.

Self checkin was good the hotel emailed with details regarding that. open wifi source avble at entrance to recover codes etc. room was nice and clean and comfortable - the bed was amazing. The phone staff at the main office spoke english well and were able to assist me with my questions. location is awesome just a short walk from Omiya station. Baggage holding is at the main office which is a little difficult to find as you have to walk through a restaurant to get to the elevator to take you up. just keep that in mind if you do need to visit the main office

Great location, convenient for public transport”

Location was great. Very near subway and bus stops.. maybe like 200m meters to subway entrance and bus stop. Very clean, fully functional room. Loved the heated toilet seat. Got food options nearby, daiso, mcdonalds, tully's cafe. Washer and dryer was useful.. but only 2 so you may need to wait your turn. Not so great is if you decide to locate their main office near kyoto station for luggage storage without wifi and google maps. No proper maps or landmarks given, had to ask around. We opted for their shuttle and it was not really fun to wait in the cold. But if you had internet and self check in at the hotel straight away you should be fine.

Save extra for Accomodation Tax per head per night”

Pros: Location: very near to omiya station, daiso is just at the corner and across the steet is the 24hour gyumeshi (yoshinoya like) restaurant. There are several restaurants and convenience store. Randen Line bus going to arashiyama is a big help. nishiki market and Nijo-jo castle is near good if you walk as you will explore the area but better to take train to save time and energy. Hotel: smooth check in. Basic amenities are complete, the room assigned to us is with a great view. No need for key card to open the door just make sure to memorize the codes given to you. Handy wifi phone is a plus. The staff is at the front desk every morning. CONS: the room is small, no housekeeping if less than 3 days stay made it much expensive than other hotel. Hard to fix between hot and cold shower, erratic wifi signal, no bathrobe, no english channel in tv, no english instruction in air con control use. Toilet seat is not warming, room coldness is coming inside the toilet. Did not avail their free shuttle tour need to schedule and go to kyoto branch. Upon checking out they ask 200 yen each person per night as accomodation tax. No advisory in website or email. Good thing we had extra money. Over all: omiya area is a good place. but will not choose this hotel again. Will also not recommend. For me daily housekeeping is a must in a hotel. Tv with english channel and strong wifi connection anytime of the day.

Nice hotel with very confusing location”

What ever you do , do not look up the hotel on google maps. I googled the hotel and I was given the location for "Grand Japaning Hotel Omiya". Instead use the link given in the email to find the hotel. The actual hotel is a couple blocks away walking. After 30 minutes of trying to contact someone, we figured it on our own. As we walked by the hotel at night we found other people who were in the same situation. Do not use Google maps!!!! For the hotel it was a good stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There is no common area, so if you need to make a call you need to do it in your small room or in the hallway. Overall, very confusing finding the location, but when we found it. The hotel was nice.

We will surely come back and stay at grand japaning hotel again”

I love the friendliness of the staff, keyless entry is very convenient, its nice that you can do your laundry for free, there are also amenities available in the room, the shuttle bus is good as well. Hotel is near a train station, bus stop and convenience stores which for me is a huge plus. Although I wish there was a microwave available maybe? The office of the hotel was a bit difficult to find so wished there was more instructions on how to find it. Staff knowledge on tourist spots and cool shops (like 100 yen shops) would be nice as well. But overall, we are very happy to have stayed at grand japaning! :)
