Was great the area is very good the only probleme is all TV channels are in Japanese except CNN in English
Gerard, us3 night trip
Hotel Granvia Kyoto, Kyoto
Adequate, but not the best option in Kyoto.
I felt as though they placed me in a room that smelled like stale cigarette smoke and was right next to the busy elevator because I was either there for only one night, or because I purchased the room at a discount rate through a third party sight. Aside from.that, it's an extremely convenient location if you just need a place to stay between legs of your shinkansen trek out of Tokyo, as it's located within the Kyoto JR station. However, if you are staying for a few days in Kyoto, there are other options I would recomend.

Hotel Granvia Kyoto, Kyoto
One of the greatest hotels! This hotel is located in a perfect area. The city is magic and the hotel is the perfect place to stay to experience it! It's located on top of the station so that's a plus! The food options are amazing and the staff were all great!

Good shuttle, expensive pool
Nice hotel but rooms were pretty small. I liked that they had a pool but it’s not clear from the description that guests actually have to pay extra to use it — 3,000 yen per adult and 1,500 per child! The shuttle to the train station was very convenient.
