“Nice, just not great”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

There are alot of positives about Daiwa Roynet Kanazawa. It's conveniently located; a mere 2 minute walk from the train station & faces a large shopping mall (with plenty of restaurant options). The double room is also very spacious by any standards [let alone Japan].

I guess my reason for rating it average, is because the room is average. Other reviewers have stated the hotel is modern; I think that is a stretch. The lobby is relatively modern, but the room itself has a distinct 90s vibe ... chunky brown furniture, brown flecked carpet and a symphony of moulded beige plastic in the bathroom ... and the bed quite hard & thus, not very restful.

I've stayed at a number of hotels on this trip & I'd easily rate this room at the bottom of the list. However, the location makes it super easy to get to the station on time - but would I choose to stay here again... no, probably not.

Just had an overnight stay here which is all you need really for Kanazawa. The hotel was modern, clean and very reasonably priced with fridge, tea making facilities, trouser press and free wi-fi. We just had a standard room which was a little small but that's usual for many Japanese hotels. It's only a two minute walk from the train station and shopping malls but still very quiet. There are plenty of restaurants nearby also and good bus services. Staff were friendly and efficient.

We stayed here overnight to see Kanazawa and had a really pleasant stay. We were upgraded from a basic room to the next level up. The hotel is right next to the train station and the bus station which is the main way to travel around the city. For 500 yen you can get a day pass to get around the city.

Rooms were clean and modern, free WIFI in the rooms and comfortable beds as well as being fairly competitive in price range.

This was our first stay at the Daiwa Roynet chain and in Kanazawa. We took an economy double room for one night. For a business hotel, this one is on the very high end. The hotel seemed new new and spotless and the room was slightly bigger than what we had in 'classier' hotels in Tokyo and Takayama. The location exceeded our expectations, it's really very close to the station and the mall, but surprisingly quiet. There was fast internet, and front desk staff spoke fluent English. Altogether very nice. I'd like to try out this chain again.

We visited Kanazawa for the night sakura view at the palace. This hotel was recommended by a relative whom has stayed at this hotel before.

Location: Great location since it was located right next to the main train station. There are 2 shopping malls located next to the station. You can find many good restaurants in those malls. The 24hr convenience stores were located just 5-10 minutes by walking.

Room: Big rooms by Japanese standard. Even for a standard room. They also provided free wifi for guest, which was a plus because many hotels in Japan only provided wired internet.

Service: Regular japanese standard service, which means good. The staffs were helpful and tried to understand our request even most of them couldn't understand English.

If you wanna stay in a business hotel in Kanazawa, I'd recommend this hotel.

I stayed there on business trip. This is typical business hotel but I can recommend for anyone to look for reasonable hotel in Kanazawa. Cost is reasonable and the hotel is very close to Kanazawa station. What's more, quality of amenity goods is really nice and room is relatively big. It's not a typical business hotel in Japan. If I travel alone, definitely stay here again.

If you feel expensive for 5 star hotel, you can consider this option. (You can see English website by googling "daiwaroynet")

This hotel is on the 'quiet' side of the train station...but still within walking distance of the market, etc. The room was quite big for a Japanese hotel...bed was great...bathroom was decent size. Really a good value.

There are some bizarre things: like the lobby is filled with these weird, gray machines...couldn't figure out if they were for paying hotel bill...or collecting pay-tv vouchers... Also the elevator says (in English) that vending machines are on floor 2.8...they mean floors 2 and 8...so don't pull the emergency stop between floors 2&3... My only real gripe is (like many Japanese hotels these days, it seems) they give you pajamas instead of yukata (robe) which I don't like as much and as a big foreigner, never quite fits me...

But I'd highly recommend staying here.
