The hotel has a spectacular view overlooking the city and the Sakurajima. We loved the room on the top floor and the food was great. Breakfast buffet is already known, but we also enjoyed the dinner buffet at Holt. In the last day in Kagoshima, we checked out and moved to another hotel near the central station. Then, there was...

I lived in Japan (Tokyo) for a number of years, but never made my way west to Kagoshima until earlier this year. I read about this hotel, which is famous for having hosted the Emperor of Japan as well as Sean Connery when he did the Bond movie. Also, that the "Sakurajima side" has a remarkable view of Kagoshima's active... More

Arrived in the dark so didn't get much of a view of the outside but the rooms are fine and the staff are really friendly we found a great bar with very reasonably priced drinks. Also they have a spa fed hot tub.

This is more like a resort hotel with many families coming to stay here. Our check in was quick and kind. Our room had a great view, but even though it was spotless and in good condition, it needed some modernization. The breakfast was adequate. We enjoyed their bar area-good snacks, etc.Near the hotel are some lovely walks. It is... More

You enjoy the best view when you indulged yourself in the nice onsen or outside the restaurant/lobby. Service was great. Breakfast was just perfect - you could find icecream/froyo at breakfast!!! There's free shuttle bus at several points of the train station and shopping area - they just don't run fast. The only drawback was that the closing time of... More

I stayed in Shiroyama in one night, and I were totally impressed by the view inside and outside. I were in a single room with Sakurajima Mountain View in plum blossom. It was as a paradise in my eyes. Shiroyama Hotel is special by its style. You can see both Japanese and Western style rooms, even Indian one in Shiroyama.... More

Due to an accident, we had to change our plan from hiking the mountains in Yakushima to staying and getting around Kagoshima instead. We booked the cheapest plan available only 3-4 days in advance (around 11000 JPY with no meal, no view) and didn't expect much. However, we were surprised when arriving. The hotel looks very nice. The staffs were... More

We stayed three nights at the Shiroyama while travelling around Japan with our 6-years old. The hotel is quite far from downtown, but the free shuttle stops at several points of interests every 1/2 hour or so. It was easy to find upon our arrival in Kagoshima by train. The first that meets you while checking-in is the sight of... More
