We enjoyed this hotel. By Japanese standards the room was large and very comfortable. The staff is very friendly and very attentive. The hotel is at a great location and Kumamoto castle is very nearby.

I will be staying at "Kumamoto Hotel Castle" by tomorrow. You might say, why would you say they have excellent service even before you staying in their hotel. The story being, I have booked the room to stay in Kumamoto Hotel Castle 2 months ago, and in last week when I am planning where to go and eat, I found... More

We recently stayed at the Kumamoto Hotel Castle for several days. Our room was booked as a double room for two persons. I’m never exactly sure what that means, but, in case this helps others, we received a room with two beds that to my eye were smaller than standard US double beds, but definitely larger than US twin beds....

Stayed a night at this hotel with Western-style rooms. The lobby and public areas are spacious, but the rooms were on the small side, and since we were a party of 3, the extra fold-out bed took up most of the remaining floor space in the room. The small windows faced the castle, which looked great when illuminated at night.... More

I stayed one night on a business trip. It is an unspectacular hotel in every aspect. Nothing offended, nothing "wowed". Service at breakfast much better than the breakfast itself. There was nothing offered that made me want to stay again.

I have stayed in this hotel recently and I find that the hotel has a good location in terms of shopping. Although I have been there for only one night, I notice that this hotel is well connected to their shopping streets. Breakfast is also great. I have no complaints about this hotel.

Inspite of its imposing size this is a tipically Japanese hotel, with small rooms, electronically controlled toilets and descreet service. Hatch like windows can be opened just wide enough to let in some air for ventilation to avoid using aircon. Interesting breakfast arrangement allowes guests to choose whether to eat early (european or japanese food) or after 11 am. with... More

I've stayed here work at weeks at a time, the staff is great it's in a great location with a bunch of great restaurant around it. It's a really safe area to walk around even by myself, I would also say check out the real Castle if you can, it’s Amazing!

The hotel is perfectly situated for exploring the vast and famous Kumamoto castle. It's also located in the city center with shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is modern and sports spacious rooms even by western standards. Many rooms if not all have views of the castle lit up at night. The design interior is slightly influenced by "castle" motif.... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a type A double. The hotel is simple but very convenient for a quick stopover to visit the castle. They have a parking garage available for a moderate fee. Overall it was good value. One main drawback for us was that there was no computer available for guests to use however. Our room was... More
