Imagine being able to step out of bed and straight into the shinkansen (bullet train). This is almost possible when you stay at the Hotel Granvia, which is located directly above Kyoto Station. The rooms are clean, spacious and elegant; some get a glimpse of the shinkansen on the tracks while others look out directly at Kyoto Tower.

This is a very professional operation with good on-site restaurants, some of which have views over the city.
