Hidden Gem
We were looking forward to our stay at Rihga Gran & were not disappointed. We left our bags & checked in a little later at check-in time. I had mentioned that it was our 1st year anniversary & your staff looked after us well & included a little gift of some royal pudding. Our room was spacious & loved the Japanese style bathroom with a separate shower & bath. Staff were always friendly & courteous. We also enjoyed the communal baths, first time for us to experience. Another bonus was the drinks & coffee/ tea station we could use between 10am & 5:30pm. We look forward to staying at Rihga Gran again in the near future & will recommend this hotel to all family & friends. Thanks for making our stay a memorable one.

Convenient, Clean & Comfortable
Very close to Kyoto Station (5 minute walk max). Super clean and comfortable. While the room is small (to be expected), the split shower & tub area is spacious. Love the ability to check the crowdedness in the communal bath and availability of laundry facilities. They have wash & dry units located on 3 floors. But each wash & dry cycle takes 2 hours and can get very busy at the end of the day! Overall, very enjoyable and will definitely stay here again!

The entrance and the escalator to the third floor lobby is breath taking. The 3 layer box breakfast is quite a culinary experience every morning. The rooms are well decorated in traditional Japanese decor. The shower/bath tub combo is great for guest who do not want to use the public bath.
