Not impressed with the check-in. I arrived early in the morning and dropped my bag. I asked when is the earliest to check in, the front desk staff said 2pm (as stated on the booking receipt). My second question to the staff was whether there’s a business center in the hotel which I can use. The answer is a terse “no”. Then I asked if there’s a restaurant or cafe in the hotel, again another terse “no” and then said there are some nearby. It is just appalling to see this kind of service here. I have had better experience when I stayed at their Himeji branch. I guess am not sure if their Hotel Manager are not reading this. But I hope the readers out there will make a more informed decision when they book this hotel. Given they are so restrictive on the check-in time, my advice is that if you happen to arrive town very early, spent a bit extra to book an extra night so you have the room ready or stay in the capsule hotel for a few hours to fight that jet lag. The rooms are reasonable 18m square for a standard double, which is good enough for one person and I assure you can open your suitcase flatly on the floor. It’s clean and full bathroom amenities equipped except for shower cap. Please bring your own if you need it. Drip coffee bags are given to you at the reception upon your arrival. Location is within a minute walk to the Shijo subway station. There isn’t a lift or elevator at that exit, you will have to drag your luggage up for at least 2 flights of staircases if you plan to use the subway to the hotel. Hailing a cab from the Kyoto could be a better option if you have a large piece of luggage and it is only 780 yen. 15 minutes walk to Daimaru or Nishiki Market. Hope this is useful.

We had two stays of one night each at the Daiwa Roynet. The first was in a premium room which was a good size and was very modern and clean. The room faced into the main road. There was a separate bathing area from the toilet. The second one was a normal twin room which was much smaller and older. The hotel breakfast buffet was OK for Japan but can get crowded in the morning as it’s a busy hotel. The coin washing facilities for clothes were good. The location was also convenient to trains, shops etc. Overall a good value stay.

We recently stayed at the hotel in Kyoto. Overall our experience was good. The beds were comfortable. The shower was excellent. The WiFi was excellent throughout the hotel. There was a laundry room available. Two problems: the room had no safe and no cupboards. The hotel’s location was very good- adjacent to public transport.

This is a member of the Daiwa Roynet chain, very conveniently located in the heart of Kyoto. It is located at the Shijo stop (exit 5 from underground) of the Karasuma subway line (which goes to the Kyoto Shinkansen station among other places) and the Hankyu railway which is a cheap ¥400 from busy Umeda station in Osaka. The highway bus from KIX also has a stop a couple/three blocks away on Shijo, or you can take the train to the Kyoto Shinkansen station and transfer to the Karasuma subway line. I am sure the situation is similar for ITM. Many many shrines, Nijo-jo Castle, the Imperial Palace, and Nishiki market are all within easy walking distance, as well as a plethora of restaurants and bars, including Craft beer bars. Typical floor plan for a DR; a little more room and larger beds than manyJapanese business hotels, much smaller than American hotels rooms, but who needs all that space? Nice (optional) breakfast which I usually skip, but my package actually priced lower with, so I opted in. Individual drip coffee packets are also offered by front desk, which is nice when jetlag does not cooperate with breakfast hours. Reasonably priced laundry service.

This hotel was included in our Japan-Tour and belongs to the Daiwa Roynet Hotel-Group, which you can found all over Japan. The hotel is located very central, a metro-station is just near by and the famous Spopping-Street and the Train-Station can be reached by walking. I was positive surprised about the room, the size was ok and also the bed was confortable. The breakfast was as always not really for europeans made and the room for breakfast ist pretty small and it can happen you have to wait for a table. But for a Kyoto-Trip i would take this hotel again.

The rooms are compact, but we were quite comfortable during our week long visit. The bathroom was quite large and the amenities and towels were nice. The bed was comfortable too. We had a view of the rooftops of Kyoto out our window. The room was very quiet too. Others have reviewed that the customer service was poor. We had the opposite experience. The staff was very helpful. They made dinner reservations for us several times and also reserved a taxi to take us to Itami airport. My one complaint was the breakfast. The restaurant was not large enough to accommodate the number of hotel guests. We had to wait for a table most mornings. The selection did not change much over the week that we were there. There was little fruit and the western breakfast selections were minimal and disappeared quickly. The other hotels that we stayed at on this trip had much better and more western style breakfasts. In hindsight, I probably would not pay for the hotel breakfast and go to one of the neighboring cafes.

Didn’t like this hotel, unfriendly staff . Room small and bathroom small . Bed next to the wall and limited space . Toiletries and a face mask provided on check in. Drab and room was dingy . But good enough when travelling and living out of a suitcase .subway 1 minute walk away . Plenty of shops and restaurants near by .

This was by far the worst of the hotel's we stayed with in Japan. We first had to pay for a room upgrade as we could not have stayed for 5nights in the small box we were given. Staff during the room change were more concerned about the effect our short visit had on the box than our comfort. 5 nights gets you ten coffee bags and free water if you don't have your room cleaned. Breakfast didn't change for our 5 night stay with Coco Pops or Cornflakes scrabbled or boiled egg as the western options.

My family and I stayed in this hotel for three nights end of May 2019. We had an unbelievable example of the worst customer service I had to face in a hotel for the last ten years. In the afternoon, we came back at the hotel and went to the front desk for some help. We asked Mr Wakabayashi if he could help us by booking a restaurant for us by phone, as we do not speak Japanese. He refused to do so. Even after I insisted, telling him we were customers from this hotel, he continued to refuse, arguing “we don’t do this”. Please note there was no one waiting at the front desk, so we were not blocking anyone with our simple request. If this awful service to a customer is linked to a corporate policy that they follow, I would strongly suggest them to review this policy to ensure customers continue visiting them. If the refusal we got from Mr Wakabayashi was a personal initiative, at least you know what kind service level customers get from him. In both cases, it is just so unrealistic to have such a bad customer experience these days. I do not recommend this hotel.
