Location - directly attached to JR station Super- helpful concierge - one of the best ever really nice rooms great breakfast
A bit of noise from the station The hotel was VERY pricey
loved the exchange machine loved that they billed in us dollars loved that the management spent time to listen and help me loved that the pool had a swim suit spin dryer
noise from train station check-in employees
easy access, from Osaka airport and from Tokyo, trains arrive beneath the hotel to Kyoto station very easy even for first arrival to Japan. hotel resides above a mall and a department store, 10 minutes from city center by taxi , $7. very clean, variety of food in breakfast.
hotel is old. don't expect much of the room, still very clean due to high level of maintenance. lounge is actually serving nothing but coffee.
Helpfull and efficient staff roomsize for standard room excellent location for moving traverllers(nara,miidera) Breakfast corner in the lobby,quick service and not over crowded
Overcrowded buffet restaurant missing amneties
Excellent location for transportation, dining & shopping. Above the train station. Buses and taxis are in front of the hotel. Plenty of shops nearby. Perfect location for tourists! The room is spacious by Japanese standard.
It's location is excellent as we always travel to Kyoto via Shinkansen. It's a great base from which we can explore other places near Kyoto.
Nothing that comes to mind.
Wether to take the subway a cab a bus or a train (Shinkansen included) the Granvia is ideally placed.
Room menu lacked in deserts. The mall downstairs is luckily more than enough to compensate.
it ok very not comment.
With easy access to both Bus and Trains, this was a excellent choice if you want to sight see or shop (there is a huge shopping mall downstairs)
Location, comfort, cleanliness, service level
Location. English speaking staff.
We travelled with our 70+ years old parents and 2 kids below 10 years old in December 2014. The hotel was centrally located within the Kyoto train station, so easy to navigate both the aged and the young as we made our way by train to Nara, Tokyo and other local sites in Kyoto. The weather was very cold when we arrived in Kyoto after a 7 hour flight and an hour's train from Kansai International, and we were so pleasantly welcomed by the lovely heating, easy check in process and best of all, our rooms were so spacious. We had reserved an extra bed in each room, and room facilities catered for 3 in the room easily. This was not our subsequent experience elsewhere in Japan so we doubly appreciated- and missed - the Granvia Kyoto experience. We also found the easy access through the hotel passageway into the kyoto ramen street and food halls such as Eat Paradise so convenient, we were able to shop eat and sleep almost indoors most of the time , which was appreciated when travelling with the aged and the young. Loved the heated toilet in the room! Cost may be higher than other accommodations in the area but you can't go wrong with this hotel if you want to minimize walking. excellent value.
Took the JR Nara line to Nara and on the following day, took the bus to other attractions. Very convenient.
The spaciousness of the room, the lovely view over to the hills and trains arriving and departing, nice bar, efficiency of service including laundry. Great range of shops and restaurants in the railway complex, and nearby.
As might be expected slight noise from railway, as our room was on the railway side, but this did diminish overnight.
Location, next to JR station and just one minute walk to the main bus station Booked kikunoi kaiseki through email before arrival - and it worked
Slightly on the pricey side given the facility was a bit worn out
Location, tourist office, busses, trains was great. Great selection of food and shopping in the area
Breakfast starts a bit late
The breakfast at the hotel restaurants were uninspiring and not value for money.
Location: We stayed here our first night in Kyoto and visiting Fushimi-Inari was made easy by a direct train. Visiting Arashiyama would be equally easy, again by a direct train. Access to Higashiyama is via Raku tourist-oriented bus. Service: The staff here was polite and efficient although it's a bit unnerving when the staff stop and bow as you pass them in corridors (I definitely don't feel worthy enough to be a 'sama'). Food tip: If you're into ramen, try the ramen "street" on the 10th floor of the building on the north side of the station. Take the escalators up to the top and hang a left to enter then take your pick of 8 different styles.
No view: Our room faced into the courtyard but was at the wrong height so we were looking into the courtyard roof and didn't have a view either of the city nor the courtyard itself.
The hotel was lovely situated right above Kyoto Station, so very convenient for day trips and meals, as there are many dining options at the station. The beds were really comfortable and we were given a room near the elevators, as requested. The hotel is huge with extremely long corridors so if you don't enjoy walking request a room near the elevators.
I rang through to book breakfast and was told a voucher would be delivered to our room. It never arrived and when I tried to explain this to the front desk they did not understand what I was saying due to limited English. We ended up paying more for breakfast due to this. I would think that a hotel of this class would be able to coverse in English as at the other hotels we stayed at. Perhaps it was only the staff we encountered.
Staff very friendly, helpful & great English. Food at buffet very good. Can't beat the location.
Excellent location for transportation, dining & shopping. Very friendly and helpful staff who will help you to arrange travel and dining. The room is spacious by Japanese standard with a great view of Kyoto.
If you come to Kyoto from Osaka airport, the bus drops you at Kyoto station on the opposite side of the hotel. Can be difficult to get to the hotel on foot with luggage. Easier if it is by Shinkansen.
Everything about this hotel was fantastic
The hotel location is excellent if arriving by train. Size of room and views very good.
Next visit we would stay in a more centralized location.
