This was a real gem: spacious room, excellent and freindly service with staff speaking perfect English. Great value for money - new, comfortable, well positioned close to the station and only a short bus or taxi ride from the centre of Kyoto. Much recommended.

This was the start of our 14 day "craft n' food tour" of Japan. Chose hotel as very close to the Kyoto train station (and Shinkansen), had good reviews and photos showed a delightful "garden entry". Bit confusing to initially find, as has another Daiwa hotel in-front of it whilst walking east up to the location. Hotel staff everywhere were fantastic and totally engaging. Front desk was a United Nations (included Russian , Spanish, UK, German etc). The restaurant/bar staff equally as good (and wanting to chat .......was start of the COVID-19 lock-downs, so little/no holiday travelers anywhere). Hotel has 2 towers (up to 9 story) and hence a variety of room rates and quality. We had 2 double rooms (single users) and was large enough - with desk, fridge etc too. Bathroom the usual 'compact and educated toilet', free toiletries too.. Room rate (we stayed 4 nights) was great, but restaurant for brekkie a bit steep (about A$33 pp), we used once and dinner as well - food and service excellent). Would definitely return to this hotel and probably use their others elsewhere - seems Daiwa Roynet Hotels are AT EVERY train station (touring, so we found out).

We stayed six nights in an Executive Twin room. Room was decent size with a very nice bathroom. Great water pressure, but poor lighting. I think that is the law of hotel bathrooms - poor lighting! The Executive Lounge was nice and selection was ok. My one issue was breakfast. Why are so many of the “hot” dishes so cold? Many of the dishes that we’re supposed to be hot were barely room temperature. Small let down for what can be a remarkable hotel.

I could not fault this hotel. It has a great location within five minutes walk of Kyoto station. The staff were friendly and welcoming. On arrival we were offered a drink at the bar in return for accepting an “eco policy” of not having housekeeping. As we were only staying two nights this was fine. The room was compact but perfectly suitable. The beds are comfy and they also provide a Nespresso machine I.e. proper coffee! As we were tired from traveling we ate at the La Terrazza restaurant on the ground floor. I was a little nervous about it, not knowing the reputation of the food but I have to say it was absolutely delicious. Some pictures below - set menu 6 courses for around ¥7500 (about £50pp). Breakfasts equally good.
