I recently stayed at the Richmond for two weeks during a business trip. This hotel is close to the train and bus stations making it very accessible. The staff is very helpful and courteous. The Hotel is very clean and kept up. This is my second stay here in the last two years. If I go back I will probably... More

Very nice hotel with allot of western ammenties. Rooms are decent size especially for room standard in Japan. Humidifier in each room is great. Internet is very good. Breakfast is good but no variety. This hotel has been my best experience in Japan thus far. Staff is great and will go out of their way to help.

It was really very nice stay. But please try to add some Indian food in breakfast if possible. Thanks for the chocolate- orange cake, it's taste awesome. It is because of your good WiFi service I was able to talk to my home freely and with no breakage.

The hotel is reasonably priced, comfortable, conveniently located by the train station, and surrounded by restaurants, shops, etc. Breakfast is also good. Strongly recommended for people who want to visit Utsunomiya.

Comfortable rooms and very conveniently located. You can find many options to eat nearby and is just walking distance from utsunomiya station. Also couple of Indian restaurants are also nearby. You can have English breakfast in the morning but mostly menu remains the same.....

The hotel is very good overall, rooms are nice and their size is reasonable by Japanese standards. Location is very convenient for the train station, although marginally less so than the Chisun hotel. Bed is comfortable but duvet was way too warm for the season. You can have either Japanse style breakfast or occidental style breakfast but you have to... More

Staff very kind. Rooms are quite small. Probably wont stay again. Would prefer to be even closer to station. There were several restaurants. I only tried Ottowa, but I didnt find it very tasty. Buffet selection was few.

The staff went out of their way to ensure that our visit to a local customer was a success. We really apprecaite the staff going above and beyond to help us. In addition to the customer service, the rooms etc... were beyond expectations for a typical "Business Hotel."
