Hotel Granvia Kyoto, Kyoto: 2,713 reviews and 8 photos
The Granvia is a stylish hotel that is a part of the very stylish JR Kyoto Station building. The room I stayed in was smallish by an American standard, but by no means did I feel hemmed in, and I found the contemporary western decor with a Japanese touch very pleasant. It had a full suite of amenities, both Japanese (such as yukata) and western. The bathroom is western but with a washlet, and the extra deep bathtub was great! My room faced away from the train yard and it was completely quiet, but it didn't have any view. Free, high-speed internet connection (wired) was much appreciated, although the short DHCP lease cycle bugged me a bit. The only bummer: the coffee for the coffee maker in the room was not free (but tea bags were).
There is a wide range of eating options, both within the hotel and in the larger station complex. I had tempura in one of the hotel restaurants; it was very good but it set me back quite a bit!
JR Pass holders can get a discount rate for the stay (also at other Granvia and JR-affiliated hotels); you should book by phone to get the rate.
