Palace Hotel Omiya
Ranked #2 of 34 Hotels / Ryokan in Saitama
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Excellent OVerall! We were staying at tne New Nikko Hotel in Odaiba and upon checking in at the Palace Hotel the next day we found the service to be quite excellent. We all speak English and a little bit of the Japanese Language. They have very friendly front desk staff members, housekeeping and porter. This hotel is near the Omiya station and the walk is just a few blocks away and it is centrally located to all the stores and restaurants. We had a very excellent view and they were nice to put all our rooms on the seventh floor next to each other. We did not request this but upon check in they put us all together. The breakfast is excellent, you can either buy breakfast separate from your hotel package or include it. It comes out the same anyway. We had breakfast coupons, but the difference we paid is about the same. So you might not want to include it since you might want to try the local restaurants around the area. There is even a McDonalds across the street and 7/11, this is where we bought our drinks, yea and some beer. The breakfast was quite good for the price, about 18 dollars, compared to the New Nikko Hotel where we paid 30 dollars per person. We liked the Japanese breakfast better than the American food.. We had the twin rooms and its clean. This is probably the best hotel in Omiya and the feeling in this hotel is old style traditional japanese and quaint. Excellent overall and highly recommend!! Aloha

It may be a little unfair to just give this an average rating as it is probably the best hotel in the area but it is set up more in the Japanese style than western so therefore the rooms are very small and anything other than an overnight bag is hard to deal with in the room, apart from that the breakfast buffet is also a little limited but there is an awful lot of restaurants and shopping areas surrounding the hotel.
So why choose this over the numerous other hotels located in town? Once again it was for its location close to the Saitama Arena where we were working, it is about a 10 minute drive as opposed to potentially 90 minutes in traffic from anywhere in central Tokyo.
All in all a decent place.

3 times visited Ageo on business trip but chose to stay at Omiya since this hotel was really very good.
The hotel service was also excellent.
Rooms are really nice & well maintained.
Morning breakfast although of little choice but nevertheless is good.

If you plan to go to city of Omiya(Oh-Me-Ya) for any reason, go ahead, make a reservation to Palace Hotel Omiya. I made a reservation by InterNet, about $100 night. There are some great special deal on their WebSite. My room was a single room. Yes, it is a kind of small room, but it is big enough for me to have a comfortable experiences at this Hotel. Inside room, contemporary interior design is impressive. My room has a small window/venetian blinds between bedroom to bathroom. That's so classy. Bed was big enough for my height: 6-feet. and is comfortable. Clean sheets, blanket and cover. Very quiet refrigerator has some drinks available inside. Heater is nearly silent. Nice desk has a big desk lamp. Real ceramics coffee and tea cup set. TV has access to BBC and all Japanese TV channels. Long skinny box shape cool clock on near bed and there are night light and foot light. Huge mirror is near door against wall. This is so clever, there are wardrobe (6 hangers) and shoe box area behind huge mirror between wall in order to save space. Functionally, it does work well. Inside bathroom, everything is so contemporary style and so neat. You get everything you need for your bath, shower, brush your tooth, wash your face and makeup for woman. They have Japanese Hi-tech bidet toilet. I love Shiseido ECO soap bar. It is a kind of small bathroom, but everything is very neat and beautiful. Door has no conventional key, instead, you get wireless power open and lock door with credit card size key. Location of this hotel is excellent. It is only 10 minutes by walk from to Omiya train station. There are many restaurants, retailers, Drug stores and department stores all around Hotel. This location is very safe area. Some people may feel this Hotel is good place for business stay rather than traveller. I agree, because my single room was a bit small for having a big travel suitcase. This hotel isn't like international 5 star hotels such as Ritz-Carlton and Four Seasons, but all amenity they offer, clean and neat beautiful room, I would give score 5 out of 5. I could say Palace Hotel Omiya is 5 Star business hotel. And I paid only $100 per night. What a great deal.

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)
