Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hotel Keihan Kyoto Grande located in the backside of Kyoto station (opposite Kyoto Tower) next to AVANTI shopping arcade where you can shop for Donki, Animate. ABC mart, GU and many more plus 7-11. Also if you travel from KIX by Airport Limousine Bus, bus stop is right in front of the hotel and you can also by returning tickets at the airport limousine counter inside the building next to the hotel. Room is big and bed is very comfy and if the hotel could eliminate lavatory smell and well vacuum in room carpet throughly would make it our 5 Stars for Kyoto.

We chose this hotel due to it being right next to Kyoto Station. It’s proximity puts this hotel within short walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We had added flexibility to visit the destinations we wanted to go to while being able to stay at the same hotel.

The room we stayed in had 3 beds. And it had sufficient room for us and our luggage. Most everything was to our liking, but there was a lack of finesse when it came to room preparation and initial cleanliness. We noticed that there were items on the floor left by precious guests, and the carpets weren’t as thoroughly vacuumed as they could’ve been. On the flip side, the room was well taken care of by housekeeping services, as they did a masterful job in keeping our room stocked with bottled water, towels, in addition to freshening up the room. Indeed, we found the hotel staff to be cordial at all times.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this hotel, and would easily recommend it for any tourists needing a good, solid place to stay in Kyoto.

Very convenient location and overall good. Service was fine, the auto checking machine was a bit confusing to me so a staff person helped me anyway. Room temperature was always settled in “heat” so it was hot to me, they suggested me “open the window” it did help. Most of the time I was out so it was good for what I needed it as a traveler.

Upon booking on agoda it was marketed as a 4 star hotel and in Japan that generally means its pretty decent. When arriving there you are forced to check in with the machine even though the receptionist is right in front of you. Additionally the machine I was guided to only accepted cash for the room tax so on the end the receptionist had to check me in. After check in the receptionist didn't guide me towards the elevator so I went up the escalator and took the elevator from the banquet hall floor accidentally.

Opening my room door I was surprised to see a very weathered room which was also still using white lighting instead of warm lights. The carpet was old and I immediately knew I was in a 3 star hotel. The wifi was not stable and I thus my sim data was used up pretty quickly. They said there was nothing they could do to fix this. Additionally my bed had hair on it that wasn't mine.

I tried to cancel through the hotel and agoda on the first day to no avail. The staff also could not speak English and there was no manager in sight, only front desk staff. Finally after the second night agoda let me know their Japan team was finally able to get a hold of the hotel staff and I cut my 5 night stay to a 3 night.

Everyone has different standards for hotels but I wouldn't recommend this one personally.

We’ve been to Keihan Grande in April 2023. It was the dirtiest hotel I’ve ever stayed in, from the hotel lobby to the rooms. There’s dust rolling everywhere, the windows opaque from all the dirt.

Staff won’t make the beds every morning, so it’s no different than staying in an AirBnB, but paying hotel prices. Some days, they wouldn’t even replace the complimentary water bottles, guess they just forgot.

On our first night, room temperature was very hot. We had to go down to the reception desk to complain (as there is no phone inside the room). The staff went up to the room to clean the AC filter, and then it was resolved. Such a thing should not require action from a guest, but just as there is no cleaning at the hotel, maybe there isn’t maintenance and quality checking either.

A very poor stay overall, their only strength being location, very close to the station. Would not recommend staying there, as other options are available for the same price.

Directly across from the Kyoto Train Station with an underground passage. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very nice quiet room. Many amenties available in lobby, so you just take what you need. Breakfast was very good, but was more Japanese then European/American. There were cereals, bread, cheese and meat and nice rolls along with juices and a variety of coffees. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel was much better than we expected. After reading the previous reviews we were expecting the worse. However, the rooms are very clean, quiet & bigger than the usual Japanese hotel rooms. It has ice making machines, washing machines which is very convenient. Biggest drawback is the breakfast offering. The absolute worst I’ve ever seen world wide. Plus it’s like a barn with people pushing g and shoving.

The hotel can be reached underground from the station, by heading to Avanti department store, then taking the elevator in the left corner. This goes direct to the hotel's 2nd floor reception (2nd US, 1st UK) and then on to the room floors.
The room was large for Japan, and the bathroom was not as small as some can be. The decor was clean, but worn and there were less comforts than usual - i.e. no safe, only instant green tea, no coffee. However, the bed was comfortable and the rates are good.
The hotel is south of the main railway station, which means you are separated from much of the town's centre. It's a 10 minute walk through the station to get anywhere, so it would be worth checking out hotels north of the station too.
For me, Kyoto was surprisingly quiet in the town centre... Then we found the Gion area! This had much better shopping, bars, restaurants.
