Neighbourhood
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.

Staff is pleasant and well-educated but I still see big possibilities of improving English skills. I was

京都站,可說是集所有手信牌子,拉麵店,好餐廳及百貨公司(isetan)的集中地手。
能住在京都站不輪是消費、吃飯、甚至到鄰近遊覽
(如嵐山或山崎)都非常方便。

- 算是high traffic 的酒店, 已有一套有效快速的check in 系統,check in 完成後,會安排坐在等候區攞鎖匙,取匙時會再問你需要bell service 嗎?若不需要,可即時上房

- 酒店於京都站內有多個出入口, 可以頂層的天橋穿梭京都站的南北邊。 計程車司機大都知道於停車場的入口處,避開人流及有瓦遮頭。

- 電梯內有小梳化,走累了的,可以稍歇一下

- 略

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The reception area is massive and seemed so busy and initially a little overwhelming, but everything was so well organised (well, it is Japan!). We arrived at noon, but were quickly registered, left our bags and simply picked up keys late

Is the hotel’s fitness center available for guests to use 24 hours each day? Are there any additional fees? Thank you.
It is not open 24 hours and costs about ¥1,100 for a whole day’s use (if I remember correctly). They just renovated their fitness center and replaced all the weight machines. They had some sort of strange pulley system weight machines before but now they have proper weight machines. They have one combo setup where you can do bench press, incline press, shoulder press and lat pull downs. They have a set of free weights that go up to 40 or 50 lbs. There are a few cardio machines like treadmills and step machines. Not a lot of people use the fitness center. There might be one or two people there. I try to book only hotels with fitness centers and Hotel Gravia Kyoto has one of the better ones.

I would like to ask if the airport limousine stop closed to the Hotel? Thanks!
The Granvia is located at Kyoto station, so you can easily get from Tokyo to Kyoto by train. The train is faster than the limousine, although it's also more expensive. In Japan, I would always bite the bullet (pun intended) on cost and go by train.
