Located adjacent (inside?) to the Kyoto station and just up on the second floor is this grand old hotel. It's very conveniently located. It's pricey and naturally crowded with tourists. There's a breakfast buffet that's got the best coffee I found in Kyoto. The food itself was pretty good. If you don't want to spend lots on a standard hotel meal, there are at least 110 restaurants in the Cube. I wasn't that moved or impressed, but it's a decent hotel if you don't mind spending a lot.

We have been staying in the Granvia (and in other hotels of the chain) again and again. The standard of the rooms is high and the service outstanding. The closeness of the trains is very convenient; the Kyoto visitor should however be aware that the city center (Shijo/Kawaramachi) is further than an easy walk away!

Nice hotel for both business and leisure trips to Kyoto. It's a bit on the pricy side, but consider that one saves both time and fare thanks to its location in Kyoto's train station. One day during our stay it was pouring rain and I observed the travellers waiting to fetch a ride in front of the station. Boy, was I happy with our choice. Our room was clean and the staff helpful and professional. There are several nice restaurants in the building - their opening hours seem a bit too regimented t... Read more

This is not a ryokan or high end luxury experience, but a wonderful place to stay. The hotel is beautiful and conveniently located in Kyoto Station (if you are taking day trips out of the city it is ideal). The service is OUTSTANDING in every way, especially the concierges. I learned about places to see and eat not mentioned in any guide book, good advice on transportation, etc. The rooms are comfortable, quiet and spotless.They will even ship your purchases home for you. My second, of hopefull... Read more

We stayed here for the final night of our Kyoti stay, as we had to depart quite early. The location is excellent for the train, but also for exploring Kyoto. Room was alright, and breakfast (included in rate) was generous in portions, but quality was lackluster. The staff were very friendly, but very slow at check in and check out. I was also disappointed in the recommendations of the concierge. For such a popular hotel with many travelers, I was disappointed in the dining recommendation the... Read more

After arriving from an 11 hour flight to Osaka, this hotel was more than perfect. The train from Osaka airport to Kyoto stops beneath the Hotel Granvia. It is a simple excalator ride from the train to the lobby of the hotel. The concierge was fabulous and we were in correspondence via email for some time before my arrival so that everything was arranged when I arrived. The breakfast is rather sumptuous and the location was perfect. When I was there it was the start of cherry blossom viewing ... Read more

What a surprise to stay at an excellent hotel in a central railway station. The hotel is located on the second floor of the most spectacular building. Stores, restaurants, cafes..... the list goes on. I loved the concept of the 10 level department store that is part of the building. It is so big I got lost - provided an opportunity to discover even more. The room was very comfortable and deep bathtub was a plus. We had breakfasts at the 2nd floor restaurant, it had a very good food selecti... Read more

Hotel was Ok for a business trip. Room on 12th floor was small, with a view of railway station roof, a non-adjustable shower and really hot water., Plenty of space in fridge to put your own items, but safe too small to fit a computer. Breakfast was pretty good (buffet, self serve) but needed to queue on each of the 3 days I was there. The coffee is from a machine and could be better. Had a delicious dinner of carbonara with Kyoto eggs at the Italian restaurant. There is a pool but you have ... Read more

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and it was a pleasure to stay there. The room was large, modern and clean with great views to the Kyoto Tower. The staff was very helpful and nice. The localization is perfect with direct access to Train and Bus station. The breakfast has a good selection of fresh food - Japanese and American. We highly recommend the Hotel Granvia Kyoto.

This hotel is part of the enormous complex that is Kyoto Station. Main access is by escalator from the station concourse. Service is good, rooms spacious and well-equipped. You can choose three locations for breakfast including an Italian on the top floor with excellent city views though the ground floor buffet has a wider choice of foods. Do go out into the station concourse and take the escalators up to the 15th (?) floor roof gardens at night to get an idea of the scale of the place. Locati... Read more

Part of a huge development of shops and restaurants around Kyoto station. Large spacious room, unfortunately it appeared not to have any soundproofing.(room929) We heard every single train throughout the night.It was also a very long way from the lifts. The hotel staff were apologetic and changed our room for us while we were out to one at the front of the hotel.It had tremendous city views and was very quiet.And much nearer the lifts!

The reception was extremely friendly and courteous. Speedy check in with everything explained fully. Floor staff/service were the same. The room had flawless modern furniture and was exceptionally clean. Room was quiet. Beds and furniture were very comfortable. Nothing was lacking, the room had everything you could need. Great location. Easily one of the best hotels I have stayed.

Awesome location if you are taking the Shinkansen in or out of Kyoto. Otherwise, I would recommend not staying right by Kyoto Station. The hotel itself was beautiful and clean. The staff was very welcoming. This was a business trip so I did not pay out of pocket, but the cost seemed reasonable. You could find a business hotel for cheaper further out from the station. The WiFi kept dropping on my computer.

We basically needed a hotel room for the day 9 am-5 pm. Unfortunately despite multiple attempts in advance, no such day rate existed and the options were to book two nights, which is ridiculous if you are only using during the day. Check in the person was rude and had little command of English. Had to bring in a supervisor to "check us in at 9 am" despite paying for two nights. Room was fine. Restaurant for breakfast needs to be expanded to handle the crowds. Self service coffee, no French ... Read more

We were quite impressed with the hotel and especially the surrounding train station/shopping complex. I was even able to replace my broken camera with an excellent value at a electronics store across the street. We had a superior twin room for three nights and paid about $250 USD per night through the JapaniCan agency. The room was spacious even by western standards. It was well appointed and had excellent free WiFi. We ate at the very extensive breakfast buffet each morning. The food was e... Read more

We stayed at the Granvia for a week. It's has location as well as great facilities. We had a club room on the 15th floor that included breakfast, lounge and pool access. It's expensive but very comfortable. We were very disappointed by the club lounge which does not have the services of other international 4 and 5 star hotels. It's really a concierge service with tea, coffee and a few cold drinks. A small bowl of snacks too. Nothing worth paying the extra for really. It could have been so much... Read more

The family room is big enough for 4 persons. Bed is really comfortable. a Staying here is just like staying at home,easy,comfortable and convenient. The breakfast is wonderful with buffet and japanese style. The most important is the location. No matter where you want to go,no problem, it is just beside the station. No matter what you want to buy, no problem . It is just beside the department store. The only problem is ,it is not so easy to book, because it is always full.

Seriously, you must consider staying at Hotel Granvia Kyoto if you are visiting Kyoto. Let me explain. First of all, it is just above the JR Kyoto Station, so it is very convenient to move around even with young kids like my family. In addition, there are so many restaurants nearby - both inside and outside the complex, and the food is really delicious. My family (2 adults and 3 kids) stayed there for 3 nights when we visited Japan in Dec 2015. Our room was on high floor and we had a nice panora... Read more

I stayed there with my son from 29/03 to 01/04/2014 and it is so comfortable to arrive by train (Nozomi) and just walk in the train station to the hotel.

If you're looking for a beautiful and central place to stay in Kyoto, the Gran Via is it. It has all the modern luxury amenities you can ask for, as well as it's proximity to shops, restaurants (in and it of the hotel), as well as super easy access to the Japan Rail Shinkansen, which stops right inside the hotel! The rooms are large (compared to Tokyo standards and sizes) and the staff are really friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Highly recommended!

I have only stayed in a couple hotels in Japan, but this one was really nice. It was spacious, a great view of the city from the room, right on top of a transportation hub and mega mall, large taxi stand out front, a couple 7/11s downstairs, a theater next door, every kind of restaurant up the escalators... of course you are likely to be spending most of your time seeing all the shrines and antiquities the city has to offer.
