Directly connected to the JR Kagoshima train station, this hotel is really value for money choice. Room is clean and modern. Hotel staff speak good English and very helpful. Breakfast served at hotel restaurant is good. As the hotel is within the transport hub, we visited various parts of Kagoshima and Sakurajima conveniently. There are many restaurants within the JR...

Found the hotel on Internet hotel booking websites and it lived up to its well-deserved high cleanliness score. The hotel even leaves a card with the name of the housekeeping staff for the day, in the room. Room is compact but good utilisation of space and fully equipped. Although right next to the rail tracks, was not bothered by noise.... More

When in doubt, go to JR Station in Japan. That's my rule of thumb when traveling in Japan. This hotel is located right in the middle of the station building. Can't beat the location. But it is a small hotel primarily catering the Japanese tourists. English is not widely used. But the staff are friendly and courteous. Their breakfast is... More

Super easy access from the JR station. We had a very pretty Deluxe Twin room but there was an awful lot of space wasted on a lengthy entrance hall and bar, space which could have been used elsewhere in the room to great advantage. Excellent staff with good English. We were allowed to begin check-in when we arrived many hours... More

Spent a wonderful couple of nights in Kagoshima when touring Kyushu as part of our long overdue honeymoon. The hotel is lovely- rooms are well appointed and a fair size by Japanese standards.

We stayed here during a JP national holiday, when few hotels were available. We enjoyed the convenience, modern facilities, and not-too-cramped rooms. The price, however, was a bit too on the high side. Of course, being next to the Shinkansen station it's not entirely quiet.

The hotel is just above the Kagoshima Chuo station where we alighted from the ShinKansen (Bullet Train). No better location! From here one can go anywhere by bus or tram. Tourist information counter is also one minute away. Strongly recommended for any one visiting Kagoshima.

The hotel is located just above the JR station which is very convenient for train travelers. For the room features provided, we consider the room rate is over priced but we may pay for the location. You cannot expect much but a standard business hotel with a small (normally in Japan) room which can give you a night of sleep.
