Stayed at three places which offered tatami mats and futons and this was our favourite. We had dinner in a private room with western table and chairs and breakfast was in the restaurant with friendly staff. Dinner was really pleasant whilst breakfast is to be avoided. Cold and unappetising. Staff really pleasant and in a great position to look round... More

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Arimoto for one night and decided to spring for a room with a private outdoor bath. The room itself was huge, by far the largest room we stayed in during our trip. The bath itself was wonderful, it was raining during our stay but the bath was covered and it was wonderful to soak... More

I found this gem of a hotel searching in trip advisor and japanican (a great site for booking off the beaten path Japanese hotels) and couldn't agree more with the superb reviews I had seen. The hotel is located right behind the most famous temple in the island, a short 10-15 minutes walk from the ferry pier. A memorable stay... More

My husband and I ended up on the island of Miyajama quite by accident. We visited Hiroshima and asked our guide for a recommendation for our next stop in Japan. He suggested Miyajama, only a 30 minute train ride, and 10 minute ferry ride from Hiroshima. When the ferry arrived in Miyajama, our hotel van was waiting (he had called... More

I gave a 5-star rating for all category because the experience at this hotel was impeccable. They carried my luggage, explained the entire hotel, provided me with the best dinner and breakfast experience and drove me all the way to the pier even when the van was not in used. They made efforts to ensure that even if you do... More

I will preface this by saying that I highly recommend going to Miyajima Island if you are in Hiroshima (or even in the area) and doing the trolley car to the top. The views are AMAZING. They are on the level of wilderness in Hawaii; just incredible. That said, you don't need to spend the night on the island. 6... More

An amazing experience. We did the whole nine yards. Japanese room, meals and kimono dressing. It's an expensive place to stay but the food is out of this world and matched by the service and attention lavished on you by the staff. The hotel is well positioned to get into the thick of town. Wonderful. Don't hesitate, book it and... More

Others have written about the lovely rooms, the torii gate, the English speaking ability and so on. For us, it was the personal touch that made the stay so memorable. Our waitress at dinner brought out a textbook to show us what we were eating in English when asked, and was very sweet and friendly. In the evening, during a... More

Highlight of our Japan trip. We stayed only one night, so we arrived early, around 10:30am. it is very easy to get to Miyajima from Hiroshima. As another review suggested, we called the property while on the ferry and they picked us up at the ferry terminal. We reviewed the property and surroundings with wonderful english-speaking staff, Dropped off our... More

The Miyajima Grand Hotel Arimoto was a wonderful stay. Most exceptional was the dinner and breakfast. The chef stopped following the menu and each evening gave us his special choice. Moeko Kobiki our server, was friendly, kind and fun. Nobuko Ishii, front desk person, was fluent in English and quite helpful. Upon returning from a hot day of sightseeing, drinks... More
