“Probably the best hotel in Omiya”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Second time I've stayed here and it is probably the best hotel in the area. Then again, the other hotels nearby are coffin hotels and two star/comfort hotels.

Pros:
5 minute walk to Omiya train station
Close to shops and restaurants
Free internet (not wifi, ethernet cable provided)
Courteous and professional English speaking staff
Parking available (not free)

Cons:
Has smoking rooms so you can smell it in the hallway
If you are here to see Tokyo you are waaaay to far.
Small rooms (typical for Japan)
No iron (though I did not ask for one)

It's a good and comfortable hotel in a very good location.

Shopping options are also readily available with SOGO, Peach John, Fancl and Phiten all in nearby locations. WIFI is available in the room. Family mart just beside the hotel at Sonic City.

There's also a couple of restaurants and izakayas just opp the hotel, a building with restaurants on all levels. Good deals at the Y270 per dish one.

Cons
Omiya is quite far from main Tokyo

Its conveniently located near to Omiya bus and Omiya Train station. If you have business meeting surroundings of Omiya or Ageo this is the right place to stay. Unfortunately they don't provide Iron box for pressing in the room which is very much inconvenient for a business travelers. Even breakfast is not English breakfast most of them are Japanese food.

Great location, convenient, very easy access to the JR station and nearby shopping malls. Rooms are modern, comfortable and clean. Hotels in Tokyo are generally small so this was no exception. However, you have everything you need, bed, pillows and blanket are all sufficient and comfortable. Breakfast is also decent. All in all, a good stay.

The hotel room is well equipped and classy enough for this budget. I was pleasantly surprised by the absence of wifi in the hotel though (i have heard it is common in this area). The hotel is ideally located for shopping and also for airport transfers. Staff is extremely courteous. Try the shrimp in their ground floor restaurant !

Reviewed 13 July 2013

There are several business hotels near the train station and The Omiya Palace is clearly the best. The service is fantastic and the accomodations are close to Western standards regarding size. I would recommend a Deluxe or Twin Room so that you have more space. The Single Room is nice but smaller. While to hotel food is good, esecially breakfast, you should venture out to find some of the local restaurants and various entertainment.
