Great location! The hotel does live up to it's name (Ekimae - Eki = station, Mae = front). It really is just steps from the JR Kumamoto station. Room is slightly bigger than typical budget hotels in Japan. Bathroom is compact just like other hotels in the Toyoko chain. Breakfast is also typical of the chain. The hotel also offers... More

I found a girl at the reception speaking english and very kind, I have left her my baggage because was early morning. the check in is at 4... More

I stayed one night at this hotel. Hotel suddenly gave us a free dinner when we check-in(not informed ahead), so it was a little surprise. Hotel located 5-7 minutes walk, and bus station was also close to city center. Got a bus ride around 10 minutes to city center and Kumamoto Castle & walking-streets. Room and bed were small but...

This is a great location, it is right beside JR Kumamoto station, and offer free Japanese style breakfast, but expected lineup for breakfast. One thing needs to remind, it does not offer currency exchange services, need to exchange it at bank.

This is one of the bigger Toyoko Inn hotels we have stayed in Japan so far, in terms of the number of floors the hotel has. It rises tall and can be easily spotted. However, when you get out of the JR Kumamoto station, make sure you find the right exit, i.e. East Exit, Shirakawa-guchi. If you end up at... More

It's so hard to communicate with them using English. They can't express anything useful in English. I think that they need to train employers harder. They are kind of friendly and polite. The hotel is clean and the nightview was pretty good there. However, the breakfast wasn't that good.

The hotel is just a comfortable 4 min walk from the modern kumamoto shinkansen station, next to the JR Kyushu Kumamoto hotel. The breakfast is substantial and good start to the day. Free wifi is accessible only from the lobby Hotel is near to the bus and tram station...just take a 130 yen bus ride to any of the attractions
