We spent one night at the hotel in a twin and single room as part of a Japanese garden tour arriving from Kurashiki. The hotel is modern and situated adjacent to a long lively covered shopping street (where my son was thrilled to find a good pizza restaurant after several days of serious Japanese fare). We had a room overlooking... More

Hotel Nikko is in an excellent location, close to the tram line to get to the mainline train station, and an easy walk to the castle. We had a standard twin with an extra bed, which was spacious by Japanese standards and very comfortable. Our room (1215) had a good view of the castle and hills beyond. We didn't try... More

All Nikko hotels tend to be located in busy business districts of large Asian cities and this hotel in the city cartoonishly symbolized by Kumamon, is no exception. With refined skills is the design of this property a true oasis, from the quiet lobby one is welcomed into a serene and ornate atmosphere. After your visit to Kumamoto Castle and... More

We had a spacious and bright room with large twin beds. Perfect for our family of four. The room had a wonderfull view of the castle. It was like a fairy tale looking out, both day and night. The service at the hotel was nothing but excellent, at every level. Ok, it's not free but you get what you pay... More

The hotel is located right in the city center's shopping district and very close to the castle with a tram stop just steps away. This makes for a great "food stroll" at night and good sightseeing during the day. We had a room with castle view which would have been even greater had only the windows been cleaned during the...

There is nothing to complain about with this hotel. The twin corner rooms are spacious and very comfortable with all the usual tricks and treats of a modern Japanese hotel. The bathrooms are practical, well equipped and everything works as expected. Rooms above the 8th floor have uninterrupted views to either the castle or Mt. Aso. It’s also a great... More

I stayed here for a night in mid Jan. The hotel is well located. Shopping centres and restaurants are nearby and Kumamoto castle is within a walking distance. Staff are well trained and also able to communicate in English. I asked for a city map and their map is very well developed, very to read and follow. Breakfast is the... More

Excellent location for shopping. Endless restaurants on a covered shopping strip would satisfy any traveller. Hotel parking is underground. Staff speaks good English and were all very friendly. Good room size. Not a lot of extras for members of the One Harmony club compared to other Nikko hotels but we would gladly return.

My family travel in Kyushu for 8 days and we stayed one night at Nikko hotel Kumamoto. Good location, comfortable. Excellent service from the hotel staff particularly Nagano who help my family to find where we want to go in Kumamoto and Miyazaki. I would recommend this hotel for family stay.
