Also easy to get to the tram, and walking distance to Kumamoto castle. The staff went above and beyond with every inquiry, and the in-hotel restaurant was a great value and selection. Room was really nice, no... More

Great place to stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and well presented with everything you could want. The location was great with eating places shops, seven eleven etc just outside the front door. An excellent base to see the town, castle and gardens. Would highly recommend.

Breakfast was decent, but not enough supply for side dishes and always seemed to be put away earlier than stated end time. Great location with convenient walk to... More

I had read that the location of the hotel was right smack in the middle of the shopping arcade, but I was still surprised at... More
