A stylish trainspotter’s paradise in central Kyoto

Don’t let the conventional image of a railway hotel put you off the Hotel Granvia Kyoto. If you have children (or a husband) who go a bit breathless at the thought of a bullet train, this is the place for you.  Perched at the top of the landmark Kyoto station building, this luxury hotel has views of the bullet-train tracks and is right in the heart of the action.

For You -

Relax in the adults-only pool, jacuzzi and sauna, then choose from 12 restaurants and bars, including kaiseki (Japanese haute cuisine) dining on tatami mats in a traditional teahouse-style restaurant.  The 15th floor Sky Lounge cocktail bar has views over the old city.

For Them +

Staff will provide children’s yukata, or traditional Japanese robes, and slippers.  The ‘Le Temps’ restaurant has all-you-can-eat buffets for children at lunch and supper.  The concierge can advise on child-friendly activities, the most popular being the ‘Ninja for a day’ package – a ‘cosplay’ trip round the city’s sights dressed as a ninja (complete with plastic sword), finishing up in a ninja-themed restaurant.
