My Favorite Hotel”
Before arriving in Kyoto I hemmed and hawed over whether to stay at a hotel on the Kamogawa River or at the Granvia. We ultimately chose the Granvia because we were able to secure a "Family Room" (NOT advertised on any of the booking sites!! You have to email them to inquire about the availability) which was HUGE by any standards (62 sq m) and had 4 "twin" beds. I put "twin" in quotes because they were each wider than your standard American twin and longer. My 2 children, husband and I all had some of the best sleep of our lives in this hotel. The beds were incredibly comfortable with wonderful linens. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful. I disagree with some of the reviewers that this is more of a 4-star hotel than a 5 star. It absolutely deserves its 5 stars. The breakfast was OUTSTANDING. Best hotel breakfast I've ever had. We absolutely LOVED this hotel and would stay here again.
Great location but abit dated”
Our room had a massage chair which was awesome for your tired feet and back at the end of the day! The bed could be more comfy and room looked a bit. Location, as all Granvia hotels, are great and located so conveniently within the station. Going around by cabs is easy as you need only tell drivers that u are gg to JR Kyoto
The hotel is just right inside the Kyoto JR Station. The main bus station is just right outside the central exit. I stayed in the new renovated twin-bed room 954 facing the train station with a great city view. The room was large and it was able to open 2 large and 2 small bags together. The design of the room was modern and it was super clean.
Nothing to complain. Best hotel experience ever. I have two young kids to share room with me and the hotel setup an additional bed for one more. Everything else is in set of 3s instead of 2 with the same price. Worth it.
5 star hotel in fantastic location ”
Hotel is located in Kyoto Station with close proximity to transportation, restaurants, shopping, site seeing - everything you may want to do in Kyoto. The rooms are clean and spacious for a Japanese hotel, great bathroom facilities. Concierge staff very helpful.
Good location. ”
Good location. Provided all the toiletries including makeup remover, facial wash and so on. DOnt need to bring anything.
Love the room. ”
Love the room. Great location. Executive lounge had free breakfast. Don't need buy breakfast.
Great hotel location, right above Kyoto Station, service was awesome, best among the 3 hotels that we have stayed during the trip. Check-in was smooth, we arrived earlier than the check-in time, left our luggages at the concierge, went back at 3pm to collect our room keys and our luggages were already delivered to our room, great service. All booking requests were fulfilled. Room was spacious and clean, we are very pleased with this hotel, will definitely be back.
Bull’s eye location & pampering respite from hustle”
Location is such a sweet blessing after the Shinkansen ride from Tokyo. Everything else is just a train ride away!!! The wonderful staff @ Conceirge are smooth Operators who’ll direct you to wherever you wanna go!
Thank you for everything.”
I think that I want Japanese site.
Best location in Kyoto”
Second time we've stayed at this hotel. First time was in 2015, and was impressed enough to stay again in 2019. The hotel is at the heart of Kyoto, and has easy access by bus and train to all of the major attractions.
This was the right choice ”
My sister regularly stays at this hotel for her family vacation and told me this is the best hotel for its location and the value. She was right. Having a central base for travel around the city, it will help you get around town in the limited time. I will be staying here again when I come back to Kyoto.
Excellent location in Kyoto station, nice rooms, great amenities. Close to lots of shops and eateries (Isetan, Mister Donut, sushi, etc.). We only stayed one night, wish we had stayed two more. Next time we come to Kyoto I would stay here again.
Very convenient location”
Right at Kyoto station.Stayed their for 4 nights .We traveled quite a bit through JR so loved the location. My 5 year old son has stomach pain one day and the front desk staff kindly found an English speaking doctor and booked appointment for us .
Let down by Reception Staffs!”
Everything was so good, Great location, Room was clean & big, Porter provided outstanding services, helpful & spoken good English, the only unacceptable during our stay was Staffs who work in the reception: 1) Poor English 2) Unfriendly 3) Not being helpful 4) Stone Faces
Always a fantastic stay!”
Incredible location at Kyoto Station! Ease of access to the Shinkansen and all train lines and most importantly, just a five minute walk to Dai Ichi Asahi Ramen! With the Japan Rail pass, you can use this as a hub for your travel to many places...and many different experiences. Rooms are very comfortable and I'd recommend booking early for a better rate. Enjoy!
Perfect hotel in a perfect location ”
Sometimes you book a hotel on the recommendation of a friend and it makes your whole trip better. That’s what happened for me and my teenager this month in Kyoto. An old friend heard I was traveling to Japan from the US and took the time to share his experiences here. Among his excellent suggestions was this hotel. We flew into Narita from the NYC area and then immediately got on trains to Kyoto. Arriving in the late evening (our flight was delayed), it was so convenient to walk off the train and right into the hotel. The staff was welcoming and professional. The room was perfect. Literally perfect. The combination of western style beds and Japanese style bathroom had us immersed (pun intended) in the culture but comfortable. The days we spent in Kyoto were easy and luxurious. I can’t say enough about this hotel. They didn’t put a foot wrong, even carefully avoiding misgendering my trans son. Just stay here. It’s worth it.
Hotel location is very convenient, hotel staff is very nice and polite.”
The hotel staff was very polite and the room was very well equipped. Every time I returned to the hotel lobby, I saw the waiter greeted with a very polite and cordial attitude. Hotel breakfast offers a choice of restaurants, each restaurant is very good for breakfast, staying at this hotel is a wonderful holiday for us.
Both my husband and I are very pleased with Granvia Kyoto. Big room, Nice bathroom, AC is very quite, very clean, Very good breakfast and excellent location right above Kyoto Station. My husband love the gym and the pool. I did not bring swim suits but I can rent one from the hotel with free of charge since I stay in deluxe room. Highly recommended.
The location was perfect as Kyoto was the hub for our travels. The hotel was very clean and rooms were very spacious. The pillows could be better and the first two nights our window wasn’t closed properly and we could hear the trains. It was fixed on day 3. Still would highly recommend.
