Daiwa Roynet is a business hotel chain in Japan. Connected to Kitahama Station, Daiwa Roynet Hotel Osaka-Kitahama is good base for exploring Osaka or day trip to Kyoto. The hotel is set on a busy main road in a commercial area which can get busy during the peak hours.
The hotel lobby is located at level 3. Check-in was a breeze. The hotel uses printed key card engraved with your room details. The front desk also handed over drip-coffee sachets for the duration of my stay. I find this a bit unusual as most hotels will placed the complimentary coffee/tea sachets in the room.
My standard double room (18sqm) is located on level 13; relatively small and compact.
The work desk, TV, mini-fridge, tea and coffee making facility. Wifi is free too.
View from my room.
Small section for the open wardrobe and trouser press.
The vending machines and microwave is available for use at level 4 and 11. There is also a laundry room at level 7.
There are plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby the hotel. I would recommend Gokan, a pastry shop just a short walk from the hotel. There is also Fresco supermarket across the hotel at Kitahama Plaza basement. Manage your expectation in terms of service but Daiwa Roynet Hotel Osaka-Kitahama is reasonable choice to stay if you just need a place to sleep at night and wander around the city in the morning.
