I’ve stayed at Hotel Granvia Kyoto twice in the last ten years and found it excellent on both occasions.
The hotel is part of the Kyoto station complex, which is an architectural wonder that includes the hotel, the station platforms, a department store and various bars and restaurants, all housed in an amazingly futuristic structure. This makes it very convenient to access the areas in and around Kyoto by train or by taxi as there is a constant supply of them available in front of the station.
The hotel itself is high end, with multiple food options and a great top-floor bar looking out over the Kyoto Tower and the city lights.
There is also a great pool/spa/gym area but you have to pay extra to use it.
The rooms are generous by Japanese standards and very comfortable. It’s worth paying the extra to get a room with a view of the city.
The breakfast buffet is wonderful, with a huge variety of Western and Japanese food on offer.
The location, the service, the amenities and all of the entertainment options right outside the hotel make this a great base for exploring Kyoto.
