The Granvia Hotel is situated above bustling busy busy Kyoto Railway Station - so convenient if you are travelling from Osaka Airport or Tokyo by train.
Check In was efficient and done by friendly staff who spoke excellent English. We were escorted to our room (2221), which was spacious, modern clean and well appointed. A picture window looked out over downtown Kyoto and the mountains in the distance. The bed was a dream - not lumpy, plenty of pillows , and no train noises.
The bathroom was great , fantastic shower, a bath, and a toilet that did the most amazing things - aside from the basic flush!
The hotel has over 10 restaurants serving both traditional Japanese or Western food. It's a matter of wandering past each one and looking at each the bill of fare. The station complex also houses many good eating spots.
There is a huge department store (Isitan) adjacent to the hotel which has the most amazing basement Food Court. Freshly baked pastries, bread, fresh fish, meat, cakes, vegetables, all beautifully presented , and good for a quick snack on the run.
The Granvia is the perfect hotel for a stay in Kyoto. Beautifully appointed and clean rooms, easily accessible good food, helpful tourist desk to arrange and suggest tours , polite and friendly staff.
Choose the Granvia, you won't be disappointed.More
