Daiwa Roynet Hotel Kyoto-Hachijoguchi
Ranked #27 of 376 Hotels / Ryokan in Kyoto
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

The hotel is a short walk from JR Kyoto station from 烏丸八條囗. Since Kyoto JR station is big. It can take you sometime to find the exit.

Love the hotel staff, they are very helpful and provide a lot of tourist information. They handed me 2 booklets about the kansai areas and what to do. Great if I got this the first day I arrive Kyoto. U fortunately I am leaving.

The payment system is self service. You room key get activated after payment.

The room is spacious and very clean. Can easily fit 2 big suitcases in the corridor. Opened of course.

A very stylish and modern hotel indeed.

5-10 minutes from Kyoto main station and just a few from Kujo Subway station. Business class hotel, clean, quite new, bright, practical and good value for money. Most tourist locations are to the north of Kyoto Station so this is clear of the tourist trail but still accessible to sights.

Several good restaurants across the street and english is generally manageable.

Double room / single use has a very generous bed. Free WI-FI throughout the hotel. Only Japanese TV channels.

Good business-oriented hotel with an excellent location very close to the impressive Kyoto train station and its endless variety of restaurants. Being also the town main bus network hub, it's very easy to get everywhere from there.

As always in Japan (in my experience), staff is friendly and efficient, and all premises are perfectly clean.

Our room was small (normal by Japanese standards), but was made smaller by the size of the unnecessarily large beds, so that we had trouble trying to find floor space to open our small suitcases. Free wifi is available in the room, but no foreign satellite TV channels (pretty normal in Japanese hotels, though).

There's a convenient laundry room available with cheap prices for washers and dryers. Unfortunately we were unable to find instructions in English on the use of the machines, so we had to imagine how to proceed. Hotel staff would certainly have helped us if asked, but we preferred to save the fuss.

Breakfast was OK, with a reasonable choice of Japanese and Western food.

I can't comment on value because we stayed as part of a package trip.

It's a very good choice if you want to visit the city for tourism purpose.
It's veryclose to the Kyoto Station, so convenient if you come by train as most tourists do (perhaps with a JR pass..).
The staff is very kind and helpful (furthermore able to speak a good english), the hotel is clean and everything is new. There is a free wifi high speed connection into the rooms.
I strongly suggest this accomodation.

Perfect choice if u r looking at a near (steps) rail station location, quite far from central Kyoto. Hotel looks new and rooms are "giant" according Japanese standard, bathroom too. crystal clean everywhere. Free WiFi in lobby, only disappointing is breakfast, too much Japanese oriented.

We enjoyed 5 nights at the Daiwa Roynet Kyoto in June 2012. The hotel is located less than 5 mins walk from Kyoto Station. From the Shinkansen side of station, take the East/Hachijo Exit, use the underground walkway under Hajchijo dori. You will come out by Avanti Shopping complex. Then walk about 100 m up the Karasuma dori to the hotel on the left side of the road (with the station to your back).

The hotel has a very nice lobby and friendly staff at check in. We were staying on the 3rd floor in a Deluxe Double corner room and could see directly up Karasuma dori to Kyoto station and the Kyoto tower.

We were very pleased wtih the size of our room, being a corner room the bed with a small side table and lounge chairs was on one side and a large desk with a set of drawers and plenty of space for our lug.gae on the other side. Relatively snug bathroom area but nothing unusual for a Japanese Hotel. The room and hotel in general was very clean and tidy. The free (wired) internet was very fast also). We also made use of the laundry room on the 5th floor which was reasonably priced.

There are several convenience stores on walk between station and hotel and a CoCo Curry house is straight across the road (a favourite of ours across Japan for cheap and cheerful Japanese curry). Of course Kyoto station is very close and is in itself a tourist attraction. There are dozens of wonderful places to eat here, you will not go hungry! There is also shopping centres off to the side of the station and a large BIC Camera also.

We were really pleased with this hotel, would happily stay again. Very convenient to Kyoto Station which makes everything easily accessible for a traveller.

Great location in Kyoto, only a few blocks from the train station. Good sized room and friendly staff.
We walked to the Nijo-jo, which was a bit of a hike but nice to get a feel for the city.

It's not really near any nightlife but overall a good place to stay at a decent price (we opted out of breakfast).
