This is a very nice hotel, with striking architectural must see. The buffet breakfast and lunch are worth it! Close to the train, subway and buses makes it really easy access to everything. The staff is really helpful. There is a mall inside the building, don't forget to visit the food floors. I would recommend this hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for four nights recently. It didn't start off well as the hotel put me (solo female) about the furthest they could from the elevators. This meant I was looking at a 3-min walk along very dimly lit corridors (yes, plural) at night. When I told them I was not happy with the arrangement, they quickly moved...

Located in the Kyoto station, this was super convenient for us, the restaurants in this hotel are very good and there are a lot of options to eat and drink. We ordered breakfast in the room which was absolutely delightful. The concierge needs improvement its not that tourist friendly could be better in guiding the tourists, a lot of temples...

We took the train from Tokyo for one night in Kyoto and stayed at the Hotel Granvia Kyoto. What a perfect location. Each individual we came into contact with at the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. The concierge pointed us in the right direction for a noodle shop that the locals love (it was delicious). Our room was great...

Hotel Granvia Kyoto is a fantastic hotel. We stay for 2 nights in a Deluxe Twin room on the top floor (15th floor). The room was gorgeous: fantastic view of Kyoto (see pics), spacious room with a large bed, lounge chair and desk, large bathroom and quality amenities, and a huge TV (that we never watched). As a bonus, there...

Typically when I have stayed in hotels near train stations they are decent but not the best so I was not expecting much. However the Hotel Granvia definitely exceeded my expectations. The room was good size, while we had 2 twin beds (vs a King or Queen) it was also clean and quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful....

This hotel is attached to the main train station and shopping mall, so travel is easy, and, if you want, you don't even have to go outside to shop or eat! Rooms are a good size with comfortable bed and quiet.

We travelled by train and this hotel is in the perfect position being above the station. I would say no more than 4 mins from the platform to the hotel. Good room 1219, everything in that was needed. Free wifi. The hotel is a little impersonal, possibly because of its size, but apart from that nothing that can be criticised....

The title of this review summarizes the only redeeming feature of this hotel. Central location, above the Kyoto train station, means that it is a great place to headquarter in Kyoto. But...this is not a hotel I would recommend for anything other than a one night, convenient location. It is anything but a fine hotel. The hotel is huge and...

I was a bit concerned about reserving a hotel in a train station but this is Japan and train stations there are something else ! The Granvia is a luxury hotel. Booked a Superior twin. Large room, very comfortable bed. Room very quiet, looking over the Kyoto tower. Breakfast was good. Paid Y350,000, breakfast included. Definitely recommend this to anyone...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
