The Hotel Gravia Kyoto is conveniently located right in the Kyoto Station complex. The rooms are spacious and clean. Not necessarily luxury but very comfortable and great staging point for a trip to Kyoto and beyond. There are restaurants in the hotel but more are close by in the station itself or outside.

At risk of repeating others' observations, the Granvia couldn't have been more convenient for anyone who like me planned to use the JR pass and subway frequently. It's a big hotel but not impersonal.. interaction with all from bell hops to concierge were never less than helpful or friendly. I only ate breakfasts there which had a good spread. On...

Hotel Granvia was an ideal location for our group of nine travelling by the bullet train from Tokyo to Kyoto and then onward to Osaka. We had lots of luggage and with the hotel located on the main JR Station it meant we didn't have to cart or organise all this luggage from the station to a hotel located elsewhere....

I really wanted to give the Hotel Granvia Kyoto an 'excellent' overall rating. That's what I would have given it had I been reviewing my stay there a few years ago. Like last time, the Concierge service was truly indispensable for the help in booking a kaiseki meal at a 3-star Michelin restaurant. This time we were there the first...

Great location to stay. If you are travelling from other places to here, the hotel is just on top of the train station. Very convenient with many other shops and stores all near by. the bus station is also just beside the hotel. Except for the corridor is very long, as each floor has many rooms.

We've stayed in this hotel many times. It is in the perfect location for easy access to train, subway, buses and taxis in Kyoto. Although right in the station it has a wonderful quiet and relaxing lobby. Rooms are well appointed and relatively spacious. For friends going to Kyoto, I always recommend this hotel.

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.
