“Small, comfortable rooms with excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I stayed in the Daiwa Roynet Ekimae for business for 3 nights. Overall, I was really happy with the choice. The hotel is relatively new and rooms are in good condition. The A/C works great (once you figure out which mode is Air Conditioning!) It isn't self explanatory and only is in Japanese, so I had to ask the front desk clerk who happily explained which mode was A/C and not just fan.
The bed was comfortable, they have actual Wireless internet (a rare treat in Japan), the breakfast is basic, but good with a choice of western or japanese in adjacent coffee shops and the room was clean (expected in Japan). Overall, it was a great choice and I would stay here again!

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet, even though the rooms face a busy street. I always like upper floors to avoid...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Having travelled around Japan for three weeks and having some notion of what business hotels are like, I found this just average. Perhaps I hit a busy couple of days for Nagoya since I paid about double what I had been paying for similar places in other large cities (Y13,000 versus 6-8,000 otherwise). Room was slightly larger than average but faced an internal wall. Typical for Japanese business hotels, the instructions for using it were mor copious than the offering of ten Japanese-language channels. Internet was wired...I have learned to hate these short blue LAN cords. They did offer some free coffee and there is a fridge and pants press in the room. The bathroom cubical is basic and there was a long black hair stuck to the shower wall. In Japan this must be a criminal offense considering how spotless even low-priced hotels usually are. Good location just five minutes walk from the sprawling train station complex if you exit the correct (main) entrance.

Room Tip: The internal wall is rather ugly...try for something outside facing.

- within 5 minutes walk to main railway stations
- comfortable room (more than what I expect from a basic business hotel)
- minimal staff at reception -- the staff seems to be friendly but are there mainly/only to show you how to check-in and check-out using the machine
- no wifi at lobby and guest room

First off, there are TWO of these Daiwa Roynet Hotels in Nagoya near the train station. Make sure you pick the right one. The one I stayed at is the Nagoya Ekimae which is on the Southeast side of the main train station (the more "popular" side). The other one is on the Northwest side of the train station just about the same distance away (both are about a 5-8 minute walk from the station). If you get turned around at the station (like I did), you can easily end up at the wrong hotel and if you don't speak Japanese (like me), it can be "frustrating" trying to figure out why they don't have your reservation (and why they seem to be telling you that you are at the wrong hotel).
The hotel itself is very nice, clean, and efficient. The beds are hard, but every bed I had in Japan was hard, so that is evidently the norm. The room was small, but very efficient and clean. Everything worked well, including the wired internet (no wireless). There is a coffee shop that serves breakfast for a reasonable price (500 yen) on the ground floor. There is a convenience store right at the corner, the underground shopping complex (with almost limitless food and shopping choices) is just a block away, and if you must have American junk food, McD's is just across the street. You are near the main train station, so transportation options are almost limitless. The hotel lobby is on the second floor, but there is an elevator if you are too tired (like I was) to take the stairs. Overall, it was a good value for a hotel that close to the center of Nagoya. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Excellent hotel and good value, located very close to Nagoya station and lots of shops/restaurants. The room was well equipped with toiletries and practical extras to make the stay very easy. Comfortable bed, etc. All features of the room were labelled and clearly explained in both Japanese and English. Great wifi, telephone and TV facilities. Much better value than a more expensive American hotel that would have a bigger room. Breakfast facilities are limited to a small cafe next door, so it's a good idea to take a walk to find a nice breakfast place somewhere local. I stayed here just before Christmas and there was a great buzz around Nagoya. Staff were so friendly and obliging; just like most Japanese people.

Room Tip: Room with double bed was very comfortable.

I booked this hotel because it says it is Nagoya Eki Mae, i.e. right in front of Nagoya station. Wrong! I had two suitcases and a bag to carry and started walking. By the time I got to the hotel, I was really tired and became really angry for such advertisement was allowed to go ahead. Rooms and service are OK, no prob. They do not have their own breakfast but you have to go to outside to have breakfast. Nothing special about this hotel, I wish I had chosen other hotel that is closer to the station. I could not use their internet service.

I stayed for 5 nights at this hotel. It is a five minute walk from Nagoya station and I would advise you to get directions before you go for Nagoya station (like all Japanese stations) has several exits. I took the Meitetsu Line from the airport and got off at the exit (I forget the name) that put me on the main road on which the Hotel is. It is one block away from a unique black spiral tower that everyone seems to know. Small room, but very functional and clean with everything you want in it (pot to boil water, hair dryer, even a pant press!) and free internet. My room was overlooking the main road but not noisy. There is a convenience store at the corner of the block, a nice coffee shop downstairs, and of course, you can walk across to the station and find a whole world of shopping and restaurants there! Recommend the place strongly. It is well connected to get to anywhere.
