Granvia Kyoto was excellently located on top of the train station and close to bus services to all the sights. The hotel is quite large and the foyer busy as it seems to a meeting place for people not staying at the hotel. Despite that, check-in was fast and efficient. Our room was quite large for Japan and comfortable. For a 5-star hotel, there was not a lot included in the price of the room. Breakfast was very expensive, no coffee making in the room (had to pay for a filter coffee?) and also they charged 1000 yen per person per visit to the pool which was off-putting. Overall, the hotel was good and we would stay there again in we return to Kyoto someday.

So this morning that's where we went! We walked down the path, stopping at a shrine and a temple along the way; the gardens are so very peaceful, and incred...
