Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

The Daiwa Royal Grande has some positive qualities -- the hotel is new and the rooms are very clean and up to date. They are also a decent size, particularly the deluxe ones. There is a very nice breakfast in the morning and it's quite near the main train station. But the

Our stay at Daiwa in Kyoto was simply perfect. The hotel is brand new, with comfortable, beautiful and big rooms for Japanese standards. It is conveniently located right next to Kyoto Station, so it's very easy to do everything by foot or taking the subway. The staff was nice

Daiwa Royal Hotel is located right in front of Kyoto train station and few blocks far from a big shopping mall with good restaurant and shopping options. It is new, with good design, comfortable and clean, although rooms are a little bit small like most of Japan hotels.

Thank you very much for staying with us while you were in Kyoto, and we would like to thank you for leaving a positive and negative review during your stay. We are pleased to hear that you liked our guest room. Not all guest rooms have separate bathrooms so we are glad to know that you found the bathroom in Premier type room to be spacious and to know that you were able to relax in the hot tub. However, we are sorry to hear that you were not fully satisfied with the price setting of Booking.com. As you mentioned, we are not able to amend reservations booked through Booking.com and we ask you for your kind understanding that we may have asked you to contact them to make any change on reservation. Rate and availability of rooms change constantly especially during the peak season so we advise you to make a reservation in advance to avoid issues especially when you are using online travel agents. Again, thank you very much for staying with us, and we are looking forward to welcoming you back to the hotel should you return to Kyoto for your next stay. Sincerely, Quality and Service Department Daiwa Royal Hotel Grande Kyoto

バスルームの作りは関連会社のホテルとあまり変わりませんが、シャンプー等の質はこちらの方が明らかに良いです。香りがとても気に入りました。
デスクコーナー。広々としているので、机の上の備品をずらせばかなり書類を広げられます。テレビが真横なので、視聴の際にはボリュームをかなり下げる必要がありました。

Hi, is it easy to get from this hotel to the main Kyoto city area? Thank you!

We also used the so-called “fitness center” during our recent stay. It is very small with only about 3 machines and no other amenities. Located in a tiny room, this could hardly be described as a fitness center or gym. Improvements are badly needed if this is even to be listed as an amenity of the hotel.
