This was the second time that I went to Miyajima. First time was 5 years ago where I stayed in a much smaller (boutique) luxury Ryokan where I experience the charm of Miyajima. This time I also had a great time. I thought Miyajima Grand Hotel Arimoto was a grand hotel, great service and good Kaiseki dinner. However, for someone... More

I really enjoyed my stay here and would happy return. The staff was very friendly and helpful and convenient shuttle bus to/from ferry. Breakfast could have been a little better but it was fine. Dinner was very nice but a lot of food, nobody could finish everything! Rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. Most places in Miyajima are within walking... More

We stayed here one night and it was OK. The location is great, a few minutes walk to the shrine and the tori gate. They provide a free shuttle to the ferry, we didn't call beforehand but the shuttle was waiting there. Shuttle stops a few steps above the hotel, staff were very helpful with the luggage, they brought us... More

In my opinion, this is not a luxury hotel. It doesn't have a lot of facility except for the bath. It is still a relatively nice hotel regardless. We stayed in the traditional room, as we really wanted to truly experience Japanese culture. The dinner is elaborate and interesting; It wasn't the greatest dinner I had in Japan, but the... More

I'm sure this place was amazing at one point but it is a bit date now and is not aging all that gracefully. The island is definitely worth seeing but we would not repeat this location. The rooms are worn and smell of smoke. Most of the staff are nice but the English speaking front desk staff aren't especially nice.... More

We had a wonderful experience at Miyajima Grand Hotel Arimoto. The service was excellent and the location was perfect to visit the Torii. We stayed in a traditional Japanese-style room and were treated to a full Japanese dinner.

Beautiful place with a fantastic locación, few steps away of the giagant Torii of the Itsukushima Shrine, once of the three top views of Japan. The hotel requires minor maintenance details. Personnel makes an effort to provide a superior service.

This hotel was very nice, with excellent staff and service. The rooms were clean and the meals in the restaurant were wonderful. The public bath was nice. The hotel is within walking distance to shrines, parks, and the ropeway that leads to the hiking area. There are also shops nearby; try the cookie ice cream sandwiches (sold on a road... More

We caught the local train from Hiroshima station (JR line platform 1) to Miyajima Guchi port (last stop 26 mins), then ferry to the island. Tip: if you have Japan Rail Pass take right hand subway entrance to ferry which takes you straight to JR ferry. Get the hotel bus up as it's a beautiful ride through the forest and... More

Situated in the town centre close by the temple and Floating Torii Gate, it does not look much from the outside. However once inside it is much more traditional. A real plus is there is a free hotel shuttle bus from the ferry pier although you can walk to the hotel within 15 minutes (just turn right at the pier... More
