The hotel is located nearby Ishigaki Port, about three-minute walk away, so it was very convenient to access to remote islands, such as Taketomi-jima. Our non-smoking room was on the 8th floor, so the view from our room was beautiful. Especially, the sunset was gorgeous to look at. All the rooms face the marina, so the views from rooms on... More

Do not book this! We booked 5 nights but could only stay for four due to the stench of molds in our room, we tried to change room after first night but got information that the hotel was full. We felt sick from the smell in the walls. Will never go back!

The good thing about this hotel is the location. Closed to the ferry terminal, local market and many restaurants. The hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is ok but nothing special. The room is a bit old and the windows are not so clean. The parking is not free because there is no hotel parking. You can... More

The location is excellent as you are less than 500 meters from ferries, the market and many restaurants etc. The layout of our room was excellent with plenty of room, the staff and level of service was average for Japan which is excellent elsewhere in the world. We were lucky enough to get a non-smoking room. The buffet was average,... More

Clean hotel, all ocean view, close (3 min. walk) to the ferry terminal, and easy to get away from Ishigaki-city. Staff was very helpful. Wifi is (now?) available but only in front of the lobby. You need to ask for the password at the front desk. Breakfast in buffet-style is plenty and the Champloo is changed daily between goya, fu,... More

We stayed with 3 persons, an extra bed was put in the room and still enough space for us to move around and having our luggages in there. Sea view on the harbour with balcony. Complimentary tea and bathroom amenities. Clean room. Great variety in breakfast, mainly Japanese (warm) food. Salad, croissants, yam are available. Unfortunately no internet nor wifi... More

Stayed with the collegues for the second time for 2 nights. Everything is nice. The beautiful sea view in every room. Just 3 minutes walk to a ferry terminal, to the city market and bar/restaurants street. It was a nice lovely stay!

The Hotel East China Sea was a great internet find. We were looking for location, comfort and view at a reasonable price--admittedly a combination rarely achieved--but in this hotel we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel overlooks the tiny harbor in the town of Ishigaki, and from one of the upper level rooms we got an excellent panorama of the island's... More
