Within easy walking distance of the river on one side and the tram stop for the castle on the other. Clean comfortable room ( albeit small for a westerner and his wife ) with the added bonus of an extensive buffet breakfast. Helpful staff, too. Certainly to be recommended in its price range.

I stayed at this hotel because they have Kumamon room. Room is not expensive compare to other hotel with special theme room. Room was ok, but i felt hot during mid night and not sure air-cond working properly. Convenience location, close to major shopping area. Will stay again if i travel to Kumamoto again.

Stayed 3 nights. Room was ok, if not memorable. Comfy bed, quiet. Breakfast was adequate, but if you are looking for western food then choice is limited. Very little English spoken by front staff, hotel caters for mainly Japanese clients. This is not a criticism, I am just pointing it out.

Kumamoto is strange in Japan in a sense that its central (JR) train station isn't located at a crowded area (or vice versa). While there are few hotels next to the station, there are more choices in the central shopping area such as this one. Mitsui looks a bit aged in the lobby, but quite modern in rooms. We chose...

Good location with lots of restaurants nearby. Very nice room with comfortable beds, adequate sized room compared to other hotels we have stayed at in Japan. Window opens for ventilation. Good buffet breakfast. Would stay here again!

Very centrally located within 15 or 20 minutes on foot from famous Kumamoto Castle and only about 5 minutes from the lush green banks of the Shirakawa River. Modern, clean, well-designed; efficient, friendly and gracious staff. Pleasant breakfast restaurant. My room was small (as generally in Japan) but everything I needed was efficiently placed. Excellent and quick broadband internet. The... More
