Hotel Granvia sets free Wi-Fi benchmark in Kyoto
12 June 2012
The Hotel Granvia
has become the first meetings and events focused hotel in Kyoto to provide a high speed wireless Internet service throughout the building for free.
In 2009, the hotel introduced a Wi-Fi service in its 13 function and conference rooms, lobby and restaurant areas, but the Hotel Granvia has recently completed a Wi-Fi upgrade and free Internet access is now available throughout the hotel’s facilities, including guest rooms.
Kyoto is ranked as Japan’s second most popular city for meetings, conferences and events, and is increasingly the number-one choice for company incentive travel. Kyoto offers a range of meeting facilities, international access, special venues, and plethora of sightseeing and cultural attractions. Kyoto was capital of Japan from 794 to1868, marking the longest period that any city has ruled the nation. It now has 17 UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites, a concentration unmatched anywhere else in the world.
