Very comfortable hotel in Yamagata. It is walkable from JR Yamagata station and Shinkansen Line. The view from hotel is amazing in winter. Excellent service and really clean rooms. Breakfast is really good with a large choice of Japanese or European foods. The stay was a nice experience.

I stayed here whilst on business in Japan and found it to be a most comfortable and friendly hotel. The staff were very polite, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Definitely will stay again. The breakfast was a good mix of Japanese and European, and there was 24 hour coffee and tea available, well worth the stay.

My good experience with the Richmond hotel started before arrival as I needed to change my reservation to a day later with slightly less than 24 hours notice. I had no expectation of a refund and communicated that but was pleasantly shocked to find they changed my booking without fee and prompt communication. The day of arrival I again had... More

Extremely low price for its quality, location and service. Less than 10 minutes of walking distance from Yamagata JR Station (West Exit) even under heavy snow. There is a MaxValu next door with a big supermarket open for 24 hours. But good restaurants are all located at the East side of the train station while this hotel is at the... More

Great beds. Great Service. And they had a wonder breakfast buffet that cost 1,000 yen or about $10. Very convenient location next to the Yamagata Station. When we go back we will stay definitely stay there again.

Stayed a night at Yamagata Richmond hotel during the last week of February and had booked a corner room during the stay. Hotel and room condition still looks great. Room size is spacious and I feel it is worth to top up abit more to get the corner room. Location wise, it is about 5mins walk from Yamagata JR station... More

The Richmond is a nice business hotel, few minutes walking distance from the Yamagata Station. The hotel has a new look and feel, is clean and comfortable. Our room was a double room which is rather small. However everything was available. But you might want to go for a larger room if you would like to have more space. The... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Yamagata Richmond. Perfectly located near the JR station and restaurants. Would have to have the biggest room for 3 in Japan. Friendly, attentive staff. At 18,600 for 3 people perhaps a bit pricey but worth every yen.

The Richmond Hotel is on the opposite side to the main entrance of Yamagata Station. It is a 5 minute walk and can be easily seen from the station. Service and quality is excellent.
