This hotel is well located, only a few minutes walking distance from the JR/Shinkansen station in Kyoto. It's not what I would call downtown though but you can easily reach the main spots using public transport.
Check-in was quite different. You go to the desk, they greet you and acknowledge your reservation then direct you to a self check-in machine. You basically enter your details and your credit card and pre-pay the entire stay. Check-out is the same. You put your room key inside and pay whatever extra you had. Quick and efficient but maybe a bit unpersonalized for this kind of hotel. Auto check-in and out would be more appropriate for budget hotels.

The room was small. Might be ok for a "small" couple but two big adults would feel a bit cramped in there.
The room is clean though, and the bed comfortable.

This hotel is located very close to the main trainstation which is convenient for transport, shopping and eating.

The rooms are on the small side but all clean, modern and fresh.

Breakfast included western and asian options.

Recommended if you're looking for a business hotel in this area.

Not in the 'exact' city center but close to Kyoto train station (only 3mins walk from the south exit, *if you're not lost in the station), which is a huge advantage if you have a big luggage with you; and the train station is also a subway/bus hub, so it's very convenient. Big shopping malls & 24hr convenient shops are within walking distance.

Friendly & welcoming staff; hotel amenities similar to same grade business hotel with thoughtful toiletry packages included (hairband/hand lotion for ladies and shaver with cream for the man on top of the usual stuffs), clean & comfortable room. Automated check out system is a breeze, just insert the room key & check out process is done (if you paid up front, of course).

They're opening another branch in the middle of Kyoto (on the 4-th street) and if the same standard is maintained, then Daiwa Roynet is definitely my first choice of hotel in Kyoto at this price range.

I was travelling for business but with family (i.e., grandparents & 1-y.o. child). We had the 'universal twin', which is made for wheelchair access, so that we could fit in an extra bed. This 3rd bed didn't leave much space in the room, but that bathroom was very nice and spacious.

The hotel is less than a 5 min walk from Kyoto Station (JR & subway), which made it very easy for me to travel between there & where I needed to be for work.

The rooms were clean and new, with plenty of amenities (they tended to overload us with new toothbrushes every day). The sound proofing was excellent! My child would scream in the room and I would perhaps hear it faintly in the hallway.

With a little coin laundry in the hotel and LAN connection in the rooms, it was very convenient for our 5-night stay.

Japanese breakfast was fine--buffet for 1,000 yen is a pretty good deal, although there wasn't much variety once you stayed longer than 2 days and the Western food was terrible.

Great value for money.

The hotel is right beside the train and bus stations but it is a little bit outside the city centre. However the buses are really easy to use and the staff in the bus station are very helpful. The hotel staff were very friendly, not all had much English but they usually found someone who did! The laundry room was a godsend, as we had been travelling for a week so it came at just the right time. There was a free LAN connection in the room too.
