We booked a room at the last minute as we decided to make a change to our itinerary. The Richmond was a pleasant surprise and a great value. We chose to travel to Ibusuki for the black sand onsen and the Richmond made a great base of operations. We did not have the breakfast option. There's tons of shopping close... More

typical of the Richmond hotel chain, rooms are clean and comfortable. Free wifi. Located right next to one of the 'covered' shopping street in Kagoshima, shopping and dining options are numerous. There's even a MacDonald less than 50 meters from the lobby. Due to its location inside a pedestrian shopping zone, car access is limited to the back street only... More

Front desk and staff were very polite and friendly service for room cleaning was great. If you stay for longer you can chose eco-service (they will not remove the sheets, therefor you will get a bottle of water) very eco-friendly The room size was good, the room has all you need, for example water heater, hairdryer and so on.

This hotel has nice rooms. It is located in the lively area of Tenmonkan, which offers a wide choice of restaurants. It is very easily accessible from the airport since the airport bus stop is just a few hudred meters from the hotel. We reserved the larger size room, which was not that large after all. I wonder how small... More

I couldn't agree with the previous reviewer; it was our first time staying at a richmond hotel but they far exceeded my expectations. We only needed a place for one night as we (regrettably) couldn't stay long in Kagoshima. I booked it the afternoon of on booking.com and got an additional 10% off since it's a last minute booking and... More

During my travels in Japan I've come to depend on the Richmond hotels for providing excellent accommodation at a very reasonable price, and the Kagoshima Tenmonkan branch was no exception. The hotel was easy to find - a short walk from the Tenmonkan tram stop on Kagoshima's easy-to-use streetcar system, about 10 minutes from the Kagoshima-Chuo station. The hotel fronts... More

Centrally located in the Tenmonkan district with plenty of choices of bars and restaurants within walking distance. The staff were very helpful despite my poor Japanese language skills. Room and bathroom was compact but definitely adequate for my needs, and always spotlessly cleaned. I would stay there again without hesitation.
