What's the best way to get to the hotel from Kansai airport?
From Kansai airport, I would take the the Limited Express Haruka on the JR line to Kyoto Station. It takes about an hour and 15 minutes with stops at Shin-Osaka Station and Tennoji Station. I think it departs Kansai from platform 4. The Granvia is in Kyoto Station. Have fun in Kyoto!
