"This hotel boasts Kyoto's most convenient location for travelers arriving by train: It's right atop the futuristic-looking Kyoto Station." Full review

"If you've only got a night or two in Kyoto, there's nothing as convenient as the 535-room Western-style Granvia, which sits, literally, on top of Kyoto Station."
"A fusion of ultramodern design with traditional Japanese style is what you'll find at this popular hotel above Kyoto Station." Full review
