I stayed in this hotel from March 12th to March 17th 2017. When you travel nowadays, you are never sure if your hotel really earns the stars it shows in internet. Hotel Granvia Kyoto is a FIVE STAR HOTEL from the moment you enter it, just taking the escalator from the main hall of Kyoto train station. The location can´t...

Pros: clean, relatively bright spacious rooms. Included Breakfast on the 15th floor was nice with lots of choices. Great location. Cons: all hallways smell like cigarette smoke. Huge busy hotel. Gym and pool had an 11$ fee to use and they charge for coffee in the room.

This Western style Hotel was conveniently located within the main train station, which makes it very easy to access with luggage while traveling thru Japan. We were surprised that so much shopping and restaurants are within the train stations. Not exactly what I was looking for while visiting Japan. However, this hotel was very nice and the rooms were spacious...

Spent two nights here and it's excellent, great location and service, lovely rooms, great places to eat in and around the hotel. Only negative is they charge you in your room for the coffee and tea sachets ! Best to jump on the JR Nara line and get off at inari station, 12 mins away and see the real Japan...

This place was prefect for us to go touring all around Kyoto, the hotel is perfect situated at the hub of kyotos transport precinct, the hotel itself is more classy than we desire but the location was the key. The hotel was spotless and the staff were excellent

Besides being conveniently located above Kyoto station this hotel has great amenities, a friendly English speaking staff, comfortable beds, and large updated rooms. Note that there is an extra charge to use the gym/pool/sauna. The facilities are immaculate and were not at all crowded when we went so it seems well with it. We found this location perfect for exploring...

The location of the hotel makes it easy to access the trains for longer day trips. Easy walking distance or a short bus trip to many of the sites. The train station has many eateries and a supermarket. The hotel is comfortable.

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.
