“Great location for Peace Park, surprisingly good sized rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

I didn't expect the Daiwa Roynet to be anything special - I chose it specifically for its location, since it's within walking distance of the Peace Park, which is obviously one of the main reasons for visiting Hiroshima. The hotel is also right on one of the main streetcar lines travelling between the Peace Park and the Station, so it's easy to get to other places as well, though you do need to allow the extra time for travel - by their nature, streetcars are not the fastest mode of transport.

At any rate, as promised, getting to the Daiwa Roynet from the Shinkansen area of the main station was straightforward - as long as you note in advance what stop you need, the announcements are easy to understand and as with the railways, all the stops and streetcars have signage in romaji.

Check-in was smooth and easy, and I also had luggage to collect that had been sent on ahead - this too was completed quickly and easily. The staff did not speak a lot of English but more than enough to deal with any enquiries I made, and certainly had more English than I have Japanese! There are machines at which you make your payments at this hotel, but don't worry - the staff can show you how to operate them and it's quite easy. I was also offered a selection of toiletries from a basket if there was anything I needed - I decided to try the bath cubes since they had been recommended on Tripadvisor and indeed I can vouch that the mint ones are very nice indeed for a relaxing post-travel soak!

The rooms were a nice surprise at this hotel - surprisingly roomy for a business hotel and plenty of room for my two small bags. There was also a coathook rail - I wish more Japanese hotels had these as it considerably adds to the hanging space for clothes without taking up too much room! You can expect all the usual things at the Daiwa Roynet - kettle, fridge, TV, Internet cable (though there was also a wifi connection that I managed to connect to once or twice - not sure if that was official or not since it's not in the hotel info *ahem*). One thing that they did have that I did not see anywhere else I stayed was a multi-adapter phone charger in the drawer with the Internet cable - it worked for my iPhone and also had adaptors for a number of other types of phone - nice touch!,

The bathroom was also slightly larger than those of other hotels in this class I stayed at. Having a soak in the bath was quite possible, and there was an array of toiletries provided apart from the ones that were on offer at check in. As usual there was also nightwear provided every day.

The hotel also provides a coin laundry on one floor, and communal microwaves, ice and vending machines too. You can eat breakfast in the restaurant next door for an extra cost though I didn't try it so can't speak to the quality.

The hotel itself is not in a busy area, though it is on a main road - it's sort of in a "between" area, so don't expect great views. However, there are three convenience stores and eateries close by (one of each are literally in the same block) and the tram stop outside can take you to the main drag in minutes if you want more food options. You can also get back to the station in 15-20 minutes if you want to take daytrips out to Miyajima, or south to Iwakuni and Yanai etc.

All in all I found the staff very efficient and friendly, and the hotel a good deal for the price, with larger rooms than I found in most other business-type places. I'd certainly stay there again and recommend it to other people. For the price,it's a good deal, and generally exceeded my expectations.

You wouldn't want to stay here for more than a couple of nights, but it was perfectly clean and comfortable for a short stay and good value (10,600 JPY for a 20 sq. m room). Clearly set up for the Japanese business traveller, the room was small, but had TV (only Japanese language channels), free wifi, trouser press, alarm clock etc. I used the laundry service, which was cheap and efficient, but beware, because my clothes came back a little faded and had shrunk! I guess a small point, but the bed cover was an unpleasant static synthetic material, which detracts from the room when it is so small that you have to sit on the bed. It has a restaurant and shop downstairs, which are very convenient, but we did not eat in the restaurant.

I travel all over the world and was hugely impressed by the Daiwa Roynet. I found it through tripadvisor and it far exceeded my expectations. Excellent central location, 5mins walking distance from the peace park. Exceptionally clean and well-appointed. Friendly and super efficient reception staff. Reserved room through booking.com via tripadvisor.

Room Tip: Room facing the street on upper floor for view.

Well located, with good price.
People speaks english and is clean.
The rooms are small, but I think this is everywhere.
Internet in the rooms are only with cable. There is no wifi.
It's a good option.

This was a good location for sightseeing at the Peace Memorial Park and walking distance to the shopping district and Okonomiyaki City! The room was very spacious compared to every other hotel in our Japan experience. There were some little extras provided at check in for a relaxing bath. There is a good breakfast for 500 yen if you want western style or Japanese style. We were disappointed that there was no free wifi but there is a free computer to use in the lobby with a lounge area. You can take the street car here and get off half a block from the hotel. Aside from the loud motorcycles going up and down the street all night, I think this is a great choice for about 8000 yen a night. Staff are helpful and friendly too.

Nice hotel and well worth the money (about £60 a night).

It's a nice location close to the Peace Park and not far from the night life.

Rooms are a good size for Japan and the hotel is clean and new. There's free internet in the lobby and a small restaurant attached to the reception which is fine if you need a quick meal.

Hotel is definitely aimed at the business traveller but is also very good if you are a tourist.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in October 2011 and were pretty happy. We were encouraged by the positive reviews on Trip Advisor, and they were accurate. Our room was quite large by Japanese standards, with an open plan layout - so for our family of four, there was a fair bit of space for bags, toys, etc. The staff at reception were very friendly - not all of them spoke English, but whenever we needed it, they would bring out an English speaking colleague from the back to help us! There is a good restaurant attached to the hotel, which we used a few times - it works on a coupon / vending machine system, but once we had worked that out it was straightforward, the food was good, and the staff in the restaurant were helpful.

The hotel is in a very good location. Close to the Peace Park, with a tram stop just outside the front door. The river is also very close, and I had a few nice runs on the river bank in the evenings.

Hiroshima is a great place to visit. The A-Bomb angle is of course interesting, but there is a lot more besides. We had a great trip to Miyajima - a fantastic day. We enjoyed the transportation museum (good for children). Overall it is a good city to just wander about in, taking the tram every now and then, with some lovely restaurants and cafes.
