Decent location, very clean and quiet”

Daiwa Royal Grande Kyoto is located about 10 minutes walk away from the Kyoto Shinkansen Station. It is relatively new and very clean. The address on Agoda is still the old address, so when we took a taxi to Daiwa Rotal Grande Kyoto following the address from Agoda, the taxi brought us to the wrong hotel. So please correct the address on the site. I've read elsewhere that this hotel is so new that locals and taxi drivers still don't know its exact location. There is a 7-Eleven right next door, which makes quick food/grocery options very convenient. The room was also very spacious and clean. Service was friendly and excellent. Even though our room faced the train tracks, it was very quiet. It is a little bit far from the main shopping area, but still walkable (15-20 minute to AEON Mall). I loved my stay here and will definitely return.

Beautiful Modern Japanese Hotel”

Our stay at Daiwa Royal Grande was a delight. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and they all spoke very good English. The hotel is very new and the interior is modern, refined and elegant. The rooms are very nicely appointed and quite spacious, especially so by Japanese standards. Location is great as well, less than 5 minutes walk from Kyoto station. The hotel is on the south east side of Kyoto station. Much of Kyoto's local transport is by bus and the central bus terminal is on the north side of the station, roughly 9 minutes walk from the hotel. The restaurant is superb. Breakfast is an expansive mix of western and Japanese choices and there is ample seating. In the evenings the restaurant servers delicious Italian fare delivered with Japanese precision and elegance. One of my favorite things about traveling in Japan is a good onsen and the only drawback of this hotel is that they don't have an onsen

GREAT PLACE IN A GREAT LOCATION”

My friend & I were impressed with the Daiwa Royal Hotel Grande Kyoto for its beautiful ambiance, spacious rooms, quality service & amenities, and excellent location close to the Kyoto Train & Bus station. Our sound-proof room was large, with two very comfortable double beds, and a wonderful rain shower plus a bath tub.

The Daiwa Royal Hotel in Kyoto is an oasis in the bustling and in our case extremely hot Kyoto. It is brand new (opened June 9, 2018) and is very elegantly beautiful. Our room was very spacious with many amenities and the bed, extremely comfortable. The staff was very helpful with strong English and other foreign language capability. (I noticed French and Italian.) The breakfast buffet which in our package was included was outstanding. Kyoto train station is a 5 minute walk from the hotel which meant we could easily get around everywhere in Kyoto by public transport and we had an abundance of eating and shopping opportunities at our door step. I highly recommend.

Excellent customer service, location. Immaculate room.”

It was my first time staying in Daiwa Royal hotel and it was a very pleasant stay. After landed at Osaka, I took the Kansai airport limousine bus straight to Kyoto station and it was only a 5 min walk after alighting. I reached early and was able to leave my luggage with the concierge before my check in time. The counter staff was so nice to assure me that I can leave my bag here and come back anytime I want. During check in, I was greeted with warmth again at the counter, and was brought to my room by another nice service staff to my room with my bag by a bell service staff. The room is just immaculate, spacious and very very clean. The air conditioning can be adjusted to warm or cold to my preference, which I find not many hotel does during winter. It is so clean and new that I wished I could stay longer. I would rate this hotel more than 5 stars and would gladly stay here again on my next visit. Highly recommended hotel to stay for the excellent location, service and room.

I have stayed in hundreds of hotels in Japan in my life, but Daiwa Royal Hotel Grande Kyoto brings the standard to another dimension. Decor and theme appropriate to Kyoto, generous rooms with all amenities required including a coffee maker with pods. The toilet and bathroom were large, very suitable for a foreigner like me who is not that small. I will try to book for every future trip to Kyoto.

Excellent...same as 5 star”

I've stayed at other 5 star hotels in Japan and I'd say Daiwa royal hotel is up there with them - but at a fraction of the price. Rooms are huge, extremely super clean, very comfy bed, had great water pressure, large bathroom, had great extras like in room coffee machine and a guest mobile phone with mobile data. 2 minutes from kyoto station next to a super large bargain department store and food. Absolutely no complaints apart from being surprised with a small "hotel tax" at check-in. The best thing were the slippers. Probably the best hotel slipper's I've ever received.

Very nice and clean hotel ”

Daiwa Royal Hotel Grande Kyoto is a rather new hotel. The staff is very professional and friendly. They responded to our requests almost immediately. One thing to note is this hotel actually locates on the south side of the Kyoto station. If you are going to use the Kyoto bus very often, be aware that it is actually taking about 10 mins walk from the hotel to the front of the station where all the bus stops are at.

The main public bus terminal in on the north side of station which you need to walk across Kyoto station which takes about 10 minutes. However subway entrance is located almost everywhere which we highly recommend to travel around the city of Kyoto which is less crowded than public bus.

Stay here!”

We loved staying at the Daiwa Royal Hotel Grande. The staff are beautiful, are multilingual and so helpful. They went above and beyond for us even helping to ship our luggage on a date after we left. The buffet is delicious and has a good range of Japanese and western choices. The hotel is located close to the train station and it's easy to walk to shopping areas. The rooms are large and gorgeous. I would definitely stay here again.

Lovely hotel. Highly recommended”

Right next to Kyoto station. Hachidori East exit. After exiting station go left. You will see Daiwa Roynet across the road. Keep walking another block and you will see Daiwa Roynet Grande. This is a lovely hotel and breakfast is very good. The hotel is fairly new. Rooms are large by Japanese standards and spotless. Staff friendly. So convenient to the station. I highly recommend staying here. I've stayed in Kyoto many times and this is my favourite.

Excellent”

Being situated ~5 mins away from Kyoto Station, this hotel is in a perfect location for tourists. The Daiwa Royal Hotel was decent value for money (if a little expensive over the weekend). The room (standard double) was big and clean by Japan standards and, if required, could easily accommodate a two people. The bed was also comfortable. The bathroom was a little small, but functional. There was also a large rest area in the hotel lobby, which was useful at times. However, in the morning a fair amount of light entered the room come sunrise, which could be annoying. Noise from neighbours, such as doors slamming, loud talking and screaming children, could sometimes be heard.

New property, spacious rooms”

My first stay at the Daiwa Grande this season (I have a few more visits booked) and it is a step up from the regular Daiwa properties (which I also regularly use). The rooms are spacious (deluxe double this time), and well appointed. Things like enough power outlets, a/c that works and a decent sized bathroom. Comfortable bed so a good night's sleep. One design flaw I noted was the room light switches are behind the lamp on the bedside table (hiding). A little odd. Close to the central railway station, 7/11 next door, English speaking staff.

Very spacious, clean rooms. Excellent location: walking distances to the Railways station which is also a mall, 24/7 convenience store, and the big Avanti Mall. The staff was so helpful & answered all my queries, especially my concerns since we were traveling with my 92 y/o mother in a wheelchair. Also, when a shuttle service that I booked from Kansai to Daiwa suddenly and unceremoniously cancelled my booking, the Daiwa staff came to our rescue by answering my sos email immediately with very clear instructions on how to use the train (Haruka) to get to the hotel. This saved us so much money in the long run since it’s so much cheaper to travel by rail, and it even gave us the idea to get ICOCA cards which we used extensively to get around, even to our next stop Osaka, and eventually back to Kansai. It turned out so cheap and convenient even with a PWD in a wheelchair. I really appreciate the hotel and its lovely staff and will surely book here again.

A brand new hotel with spacious rooms near bustling Kyoto station. ”

This hotel was absolutely immaculate and the rooms had been designed with every convenience in mind, even down to the heated bathroom mirror. It was by far the largest room we had during our travels in Japan, plenty of storage and a separate seating area even just in a standard double room. We loved the complimentary yukata and nespresso machine and the daily free bottles of water were great in the August heat. The staff were very friendly and exceptionally keen to help although it was possible to tell that they were a little new, the hotel had only been open a few months and in their enthusiasm they'd talk over each other a little bit. The location is great for getting around Kyoto and the wider area, close to lots of bus stops and the huge expanse that is Kyoto station. We avoided breakfast at the hotel (VERY expensive) and grabbed snacks from the 7/11 each night to put in our fridge in the room. Negatives: we felt the restaurant was overpriced and very small portion sizes compared to every other meal we ate in Kyoto. Also as a coeliac (gluten free needed) they didn't understand at all which to be fair was the case across Japan as a whole. May be something they could learn about as they continue to get visitors from around the world I'm sure they will encounter this again. Also avoid getting a massage in the relaxation room. It's an external company that come in to the hotel. During my massage other hotel guests opened the door of the room and came in. When I told front desk about this I was offered an apology but not even a complimentary drink in the bar. I expected them to take it a bit more seriously. Lesson learnt! Overall we would stay here again as a good base for exploring Kyoto.
