              • Great location and luxury, convenient to train station. Throughout our stay was exceptional and the price was too high compared to other Granvias had a better equipment. Our room looked south over the shin tracks was fine as we could see the mountains beyond and the staff were very helpful.

                The hotel is very busy and the lobby is constantly crowded.

              • The location is good, we liked the rooms and 's near a bus line to Gion, staff hotel are very helpful &. Beds are very comfortable, food readily available in Foodhalls and restaurants close by.

                Buffet breakfast expensive and repetitive.

              • Its location is very nice and Kyoto station itself is a piece of modern art worth visiting. The hotel facilities are good and great view of the city by taking the escalators to the top of the building. Staff is very courteous and rooms are excellent. The continental breakfast costs 1,400 yen per person and only consists of bread and coffee.

                The price is a little bit expensive and lobby design is poor. Bathroom on the small side and a bit dated.

              • Location is good for everything and also taxis are easily available. Hotel granvia has the best and high quality rooms set in the amazing Kyoto station building. The lobby's plush seating and dim lighting makes for a romantic getaway, service is excellent, lovely bathroom, easily accomodated our party of 2 adults and 1 child.

                Not worth the money, beds below average not very comfy and drink expensive cocktails.

              • Great location and views, nice room decor, concierge Staff speak good English and is knowledgeable and provide sound advice. Bathrooms are well accomadated.

                The usual absurd prices in hotel bars & and the subway wasn't as convenient for going to downtown Kyoto at night. All restaurants very expensive.
