Great place! Great location! Amazing staff! ”

I would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone traveling to Kyoto. It is located right in the heart of the city. The bus stop is 2 mins away. The room was very comfortable, clean, and had all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. But above all, it was the helpful and friendly staff that we will remember. Mr. Yoda at the front desk was extremely helpful. He helped us find a pharmacy which was open at midnight as we urgently needed some medications. He printed out a map and directions for us. We were extremely happy with our stay at Hotel Gracery Kyoto Sanjo and would recommend it to family and friends.

Great Location - road cross to 2 Shopping Centers”

A very well located and convenience hotel - 1. About 700m from either Sanjo (take Exit 6) or Kawaramachi (take Exit 6 or 9) Stations; 2. In between 2 Shoppings centre - Teramachi & Shinkyogoku. At the longer end of these two shopping centres, you can find Fuji Daimaru and Takashimaya (Kawaramachi Station); 3. Less than 200m to Nishiki Market; 4. Less than 15minutes walk to Gion - Pontocho Dori St, Hanamikoji Dori St. Another 5 minutes, you will reach Yasaka Shrine. We actually walked to Nene No Michi St to Kodaji Temple and back tracked to Yasaka Shrine. 5. Many good food outlet surrounding the hotel. Must try is Tendon Makino (tempura in rice bowl) in the Teramachi shopping centre. We enjoyed our stay at Gracery South wing (newer wing) except the bedding. The bed was rather very firm. The pillows were just too flat to sleep on. We asked for extra pillow but still the flat one. My wife did not have good sleep for the 3 nights we were there. I have to agree with her as we came from other hotels and we can noticed the differences.

My husband and I really enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Hotel Gracery Kyoto Sanjo! The staff were super helpful with any request we had, from calling a taxi, to showing us how to use the laundry facilities, to calling a restaurant to make a reservation on our behalf. The room was spacious by Japan standards and I loved the shower and all the product freebies that came with it. It's right next to a ton of shopping, restaurants, and very close to two stations. Would definitely stay here again if I'm ever in Kyoto!

Beautiful modern hotel in the heart of Kyoto”

Two years ago when I visited Kyoto for the first time I was booked into a nearby hotel. This year that place was not available so I booked the Gracery just a block away. I knew the location was superb which is why I thought this would be a good choice. There are covered shopping areas adjacent to this hotel so even if it's raining you can get out and find a place to eat or drink an, of course, shop. It's also only 4 or 5 blocks from the Kamo River with its riverside eateries and famous Ponto-cho Street. Kawaramachi Street has buses which run to and from Kyoto Station and to all parts of the city. Several subway stations are located nearby, as well. The hotel staff are charming and the breakfast buffet is sumptuous with Asian and Western choices. Rooms are small as in most modest Japanese hotels but well supplied with amenities.

Best location - near everything!”

I loved our stay at the Gracery in Kyoto this week. I booked the room after doing a little research, but it surpassed my expectations. Right out the door is the Shinkyogoku shopping district and a few blocks away are some of the best spots to eat in the city. The room itself is all you need. I expected the rooms to be smaller than the typical room found in the US, but it was more than enough for our three-day stay. After traveling for a few weeks already I was over the moon to find out they had two washers and dryers for guest use. It was 300 yen for wash and 100 yen for drying, nothing compared to the expense of sending out for dry cleaning at other hotels. The staff was very attentive and the breakfast had a good mix of western and eastern dishes. The only thing that would have made the stay better was a view, but we didn't spend much time in the room. Overall a very good experience and if we went back to Kyoto, we would stay at the Gracery.

Great hotel in the centre of downtown Kyoto.”

Hotel Gracery is located right in the middle of downtown Kyoto, so lots of shopping and food options plausibly the seafood lane where one can get everything from the sea world imaginable. The hotel is also located to some of the key sights, so very handy in that regard. The hotel has all the modern ammenities you would require in your room for a great stay. The breakfast is good with a reasonable range of both Japanese and Western dishes to select from. I would happily recommend Hotel Gracery to stay at.

In the middle of kyoto downtown where shops and restaurants are just ouside the hotel. About 10 minute walk to Kawaramachi station (can take hankyu railway from/to umeda station osaka to/from kyoto). Modern hotel with good toilet and bath, and with complete amenities. Room size is a little larger than usual in Japan (we booked twin rooms). Their pillows though are very hard. they have one hard pillow for head and an extra soft one per bed. Had to request extra pillows for us to be comfortable.

Although the hotel location is excellent but it is a bit confusion to find the hotel at the bargaining, because it is located in the area that taxi won't be able to get in after 10:00am. If you walk along the street then you will figure it out right away. We love to stay in Gracery next time if we are going to visit Kyoto again.

Excellent location with a comfy room”

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in Japan so far. The location is right smack in a shopping district which has rows and rows of covered walkways. Everything is within walking distance if you don't want to venture anywhere far (I am sure you will). The staff is extremely helpful. One even wrote down the different places we wanted to go and the bus numbers we were supposed to take. They were very patient. Buy the day bus pass -- it's worth it. The room is comfortable and everything is well thought of. They provide phone chargers, clothes sanitisers etc. Also, the bathroom is well designed and well thought through. From what my friend says (he has stayed in the Gracery chain before), this is one chain of hotel I will use if they are at locations I will be in in Japan.

Great place to be in Kyoto”

Hotel Gracery was spotlessly clean with modern furnishings. The location is good, in the midst of traffic-free shopping streets. Kyoto doesn’t have the extensive subway system of Tokyo and the nearest stations are about a 10 minute walk. Lots of restaurants nearby. We were in the South Tower. Breakfast was expensive for what was on offer., better options in the neighborhood.

This is a great hotel with a few VERY MINOR drawbacks”

I opted for this location because our last time we were in Kyoto we were quite far from the downtown area and we had to walk very far for a restaurant that was open later in the evening. This time we chose this and it was smack dab in the downtown area. However, that means a taxi cannot drive you to the front of the hotel. They will drive you to the main street and you must walk in the 5 minutes or so. It is also far from Kyoto station so you will need to catch a subway (8 minutes from the hotel to the nearest station) or use a taxi. I recommend hiring a driver in Kyoto, FYI. The staff doesn't speak much English but their breakfast buffet is REALLY good so grab this option if you can. Breakfast places in Japan don't open till 10am. There are only 2 washers in the building, but the room is very nicely appointed and the lobby has a very nice feeling. I would definitely return to this location.
