Hands down, Granvia has one of the best locations to stay in Kyoto. Situated within the Kyoto train station complex, it provides flexibility and accessibility as you explore Kyoto. 5/5
Rooms were spacious and provides ample amenities. They we're perfectly refreshed daily. 5/5
Location, location location!
In very simple words this property has a great location, literally you just go downstairs and you're at Kyoto station. I choose this hotel because I wanted to explore this beautiful city but also wanted to explore the surrounding attractions, I was...More
We stayed in this very central hotel for three nights. On our previous visit to Kyoto we had a meal there and saw how convenient it was for trains and buses. It is located on the first level by lift or escalator on the left...More
Brilliant location, it’s part of the stunning architecture of Kyoto station and the convenient location means you have access to the city buses (to Kinkakuji etc) as well as the excellent Porta shopping complex downstairs and Isetan upstairs in station.
This was the most expensive...More

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.

The Granvia is located at Kyoto station, so you can easily get from Tokyo to Kyoto by train. The train is faster than the limousine, although it's also more expensive. In Japan, I would always bite the bullet (pun intended) on cost and go by train.
From Kansai airport, I would take the the Limited Express Haruka on the JR line to Kyoto Station. It takes about an hour and 15 minutes with stops at Shin-Osaka Station and Tennoji Station. I think it departs Kansai from... More
From Kansai airport, I would take the the Limited Express Haruka on the JR line to Kyoto Station. It takes about an hour and 15 minutes with stops at Shin-Osaka Station and Tennoji Station. I think it departs Kansai from platform 4. The Granvia is in Kyoto Station. Have fun in Kyoto!
