Location, location, location

Right above the tracks but super quiet. Best location in Kyoto, the station building is a mini city in itself with shopping, dining and inbuilt entertainment! Hotel staff were gracious and super helpful. We had standard twin rooms that were like new and beautifully kitted out. Extremely comfortable. If I was super picky, there was one thing I didn't like, was the background music that as everywhere in the hotel, it was a monotone of chanting and temple bells, too much every time you walked into the building. At the price we paid it was an absolute bargain, even our local guide said it was his pick for favourite hotel in Kyoto. We wouldn't stay anywhere else if we came back.

Great location, small rooms

The Granvia is part of Kyoto station, and so very convenient for arriving and departing by train. The lobby area is huge and bustling, and the rooms quite adequate, but a bit on the small side, and perhaps in need of a refresh soon. Exceptionally polite and helpful staff.

5 Star all the way

This hotel is 5 star all the way, large rooms by Japanese standards. Plenty of room for luggage, also table and chairs, lovely and extensive range of bathroom products, robes and slippers. Air conditioner welcomed. Complimentary bottle of water each day. TV good selection of channels. Staff wonderfully helpful. Being attached to the train station was a positive - close to transport of all types, and great for people watching, shopping etc. No train noise heard in our room on the 12th floor. Excellent.

Mixed bag

When I first arrived at the hotel they had no record of my booking despite the fact that I had the print out to prove it. They claimed they must have lost it and weren't sure if they had any rooms. Initally they said to come back at 3 and check again. I was not happy with this so after further questioning they found a room for me - a double. However when I returned back that afternoon to check in to my room, they had changed it again to a single. The didn't really seem to know what they were doing. I said I'd been told about the double earlier, they questioned that. Anyway I complained as I was infuriated by the service and general incompetency. Much to my pleasure then they upraged me to a suite which was lavish. Absolultely fabulous. Walk in robe, marble bathroom, separate lounge. Beautiful. After al the inital hassles I had a very pleasant stay. Staff were helpful and the breakfast buffet I would highly recommend. I ate that and it filled me for the day! Good value for money.

Great Location

From the moment we dropped off our luggage and went off sightseeing to coming back to a very comfortable room, we felt welcomed. The staff spoke very good English and the information for sightseeing was very good. The location above the train station is excellent and there are good restaurants to get breakfast, lunch or dinner in the shopping areas in the station. This hotel if far superior to its namesake in Hiroshima. We had a buffet dinner in the restaurant and found it reasonable in price with a good choice of food.

We used a guide from tours by locals and can highly recommend such a tour. Our guide, as arranged by email, showed us the main sights but also took us to places which you would not see on any other tours. We only had one day with her but she gave us other places to see on the next day.
