We have spent 2 nights in this hotel. We had a room with a very nice view on the lake. The room was large and very clean. Corridors would deserve to be cleaned and renovated. This is a large, modern hotel which 'claims' to be at 4 stars level and is not, specifically on service side. Bar which charges 800... More

I stayed in the East Wing of the hotel where I suppose they offer spacier and more modern rooms. My room was really big, spotlessly clean and supplied with the usual array of amenities. The only drawback was probably the windows that couldn´ t be opened from inside the room and centrally regulated heating. Air-conditioning can be set individually but... More

Really enjoyed staying in this hotel with Western facilities. Very helpful staff and good service in the dining room. an unforgettable experience was watching the early morning fishermen in the lake - a free cultural show

This is the second time I stay in this resort. I find it quite comfortable and sufficient for the purposes of my travel. Lovely rooms with a magnificent view to the lake, excellent service by the personnel. Gentle figures everywhere!

We spent three nights in Matsue at Hotel Ichibata. I can believe that it is an old and reputable hotel....you can still see lots of Japanese locals coming in, dressed very well, to attend dinners and weddings, etc. I'm sure that, in its yesteryears, the hotel was truly impressive. However, the accommodations are now dated. Our "air conditioning" did not... More

It's like smoke have attached to objects in the room even my smoker friends complained. On the plus side, the view of the lake at sunset was awesome.

Our group of 3 had a single - overlooking the little train station, and a twin - overlooking Lake Shinji. The views over the lake were awesome, definitely worth the extra we had to pay to be on the lake side of the building. Unfortunately there are no single rooms on the lake side, so one of our group did... More

The hotel room was the smallest one that I have ever had and the smallest per their chart on the door: a bed, a desk, three hooks--no closet, no cabinet, no nightable. I could reach the desk to shut off my alarm while lying prone on the bed. The bathtub was so small that I couldn't sit in it. I... More

We stayed here because it was advertised as "english-speaking". Although the staff were very friendly, I think that may have been an overstatement. This hotel is a little bit further away than most others in Matsue (which are near Matsue Station). But, the hotel is on a bus route which gives you access to almost everywhere you want to go...
