“Will stay here again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

This is by far the best stay in Kyoto. You have an easy access to Kyoto station, around 5-10 minutes of walking. Best Wi-fi network and lovely staff. Everything is very clean and they have a coin operated laundry which I found it very useful. Surprisingly my room was very large comparing with other hotels I’ve stayed in Japan, everything is modern and it’s very quiet. The staff is very attentive and will make you feel great.

Just want to add to the previous review (by Papa_Panda) which I fully agree with (except for the breakfast and the laundry which we didn't use): the staff were so nice they stored our luggage for 4 days while we were travelling to Shikoku after our intermittent stay in Kyoto for one night, and when we returned to stay for 3 more nights they took our backpacks to storage while preparing the room for us and when it was ready they brought all of our stuff to the room. Great service, great location, great value.

My wife and I wanted somewhere close to Kyoto Station as we were arriving in the evening after flying from Australia to Kansai. The hotel was easy to find and the underground walkway from the station to Avanti Mall makes access really easy.

The hotel staff were friendly on arrival and we have had no problems with our lack of Japanese language when dealing with the staff.

Our room was a double (Queen sized bed) on the second floor and non-smoking. Decor of the hotel - lobbies, hallways and rooms is modern and the rooms and public areas are perfectly clean. The bed is firm but that is how we like ours so that was great. The weather that we experienced in Kyoto whilst there was unseasonably hot and humid for October but the air-conditioing in the room works a treat.

Room service staff were unobtrusive and our room was always left immaculately cleaned. The wi-fi coverage in the hotel is fantastic and we were easily able to upload photos, blog informations and Facetime with our daughter (and dogs!) in Australia.

Coin operated laundry in the hotel is economical and clean and we were pleased that it meant we were able to put a load of clothes through after the hot sticky weather we had experienced.

We paid for the buffet breakfast one morning to try it out and for Y1000 each it was very good value and the food was appetising.

The Aeon Mall to is only a short walk to the south of the hotel and has a great supermarket. Access to all the shops and eateries in Kyoto Station and Porta Mall is also a breeze. There is a microwave oven in the vending machine room on Floor2. And when you need to leave town, if travelling on the Shinkansen, then you are already on the rights side of the station.

Last time I was in Kyoto my daughter and I stayed in another hotel on the other side of the station and the Daiwa Roynet and its room and bathroom size in comparison is so much better. If I return to Kyoto then I will certainly stay here and will be recommending it to friends who visit Japan.

Only sad thing was that the hotel was unable to sell me one of their special soba pillows. It would have mad my sleeping at home so much better!!!

We wanted to visit other cities beside Tokyo and Kyoto seemed like a good city to stay in since it was close to Osaka, Nara, etc. This hotel was literally like 5 mins away from the Kyoto Station. It was convenient when we came home late from Osaka. The hotel itself had a very nice vibe, very clean, modern, professional and very friendly. Since we don't speak Japanese, it was good that they knew some English. The rooms themselves are very clean, they have AC. We requested a no smoking room. The only negative I have to say about the rooms are that they're quite small. If you have big luggage, it will take up a lot of space. The service is great, expected for any good hotel. We even had the breakfast buffet, it was roughly 20 bucks CAD for two people, but it was quite good. Anyways, we loved our stay, if we go back to Kyoto (which we will likely do in the future) we will definitely come here again. Thanks!

Clean room, easy access from Kyoto station (5 - 10 mins walk), helpful staff, fast wifi network! There's nothing I can complain about!

One side note: We arrived Kyoto at night and had a hard time finding the hotel for the first time. And apparently people do not know / understand the name of the hotel. Please have the map / even hotel pic ready if you are gonna ask for directions! And don't worry about the food in the hotel, there are plenty of restaurants in the train station!

Decent value, decent rooms.

This was our second stay in the Daiwa chain and were pleased with our experience.

The location is on the south side of the train station so not the most ideal location but is a 10 minute walk over to the main side of the station and the other parts of Kyoto.

Good quality hotel. the hotel also has a coin operated laundry which was good for us to was a dry a few bits an pieces.


Would recommend to anyone wanting to see Kyoto at a good value price. free wifi in rooms

I paid $68.00US including tax for a single room in this hotel, booked through hotels.com about 3 months prior to the trip. All the previous positive reports here on TA are accurate....my only complaint was a foul smell in the bathroom.....until you ran the shower, then it went away, not sure if a drainage or ventilation problem.There was also no English News channels on the TV.
The Aeon Mall is a 10 minute walk away for some good dining options at the food court on the 4th floor, and an excellent supermarket/Grocery Store on the ground level, which saves dealing with the chaotic Kyoto Station.
