Hotel Granvia Kyoto Japan

Hotel Granvia, Kyoto, Japan


The team will meet and greet you on the platform as you step off the Shinkansen at JR Kyoto station, after all the hotel is connected to this entry-way into the city. The sprawling hotel towers over Kyoto and from higher floors you can see all that the city has to offer – a 270 degree view apparently – and train-spotters will love the station-facing rooms.
Hotel Granvia Kyoto Japan

With 535 rooms and suites, it’s a gentle giant and a well-oiled machine, but that doesn’t mean it lacks on service – staff are attentive and you get everything you’d expect from a multi-national chain.

What makes the Granvia special is its commitment to LGBT equality, being the first hotel in Japan to offer same-gender wedding packages in partnership with the progressive, 400-year-old Shunkoin temple. The Granvia is among the first Japanese members of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association and those in the know will recognise the rainbow-flag pins that all hotel concierges wear to demonstrate their gay-welcoming stance.
