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

Our family of four adults had a very comfortable stay in Miyajima Grand Hotel Arimoto recently. We booked the western+japanese style room and it was still very spacious. The lounge area is transformed into a private japanese tatami sleeping area with sliding doors to give privacy if needed. On top of that, there is still the entrance lobby and sitting... More

We opted for the western room as we were doing a few nights of Japanese rooms later on in our stay so wanted to have a bed. The room was very nice, large and traditionally decorated. Our bed was very comfortable and the room and hotel in general looked very modern. The bath facilities were great. Compared to other places... More

This hotel seems to either thrill or disappoint patrons, based on the reviews and I can see why now. My partner and I booked the "Special Japanese Room - Sukiya"' room number 515, with the dinner and breakfast package, for one night. The hotel minibus was at the ferry terminal when we arrived (there by chance; we hadn't phoned ahead).... More
