4.12km from Sasaki ClinicWe stayed at Daiwa Roynet Koriyama during our excursion in Tohoku, mostly to take advantage of its cheaper cost (comparing to similar hotels in Sendai) and proximity to JR station. The room was quite spacious comparing for a business hotel, and the bathroom was gigantic with a separate area for shower and bath. The room comes with plenty of amenities, and being less than 1 year old, everything was brand new and shiny. Wi-Fi speed was great and encrypted. The front desk staff was very friendly (even by Japanese standards) and everyone goes the extra mile to help you out. Some staff speak fluent English. We had no problem communicating some complex luggage logistic stuff with them. The housekeeping was amazing, but that's what we come to expect from most Japanese hotels. The hotel is about 2-minute walk to JR Koriyama station, and we were able to reach the Shikansen platform in under 4 minutes. The only downside is that Koriyama is a smaller station and not every Shinkansen stops there. There are several car rental shops within walking distance. Parking was plenty despite it being in downtown. The JR Station offers quite some dining and shopping options, and there is a Family Mart and a Lawson next to the hotel. We would definitely consider staying at this hotel again for excursions along the Tohoku Shinkansen and nearby area.
