Vessel Hotel is probably one of the best ones in the city of Ishigaki. It is in the middle of the city, so not a "resort hotel". It does not have swimming pools nor facing the beach. It doesn't even have restaurant, although breakfast is available. If you are a diver or an active traveller and usually don't stay in... More

Dear PSIshigaki, Thank you very much for sharing your experience at tripadvisor. How was your family trip to Ishigaki Island? As you mentioned in your review, our hotel rooms are half as spacious again as similar business hotel rooms, so they are very suitable for a family trip or a group trip. For more service, we offer kids-free-stay (under 18)... More

Very comfortable and well-equipped room; fairly newly furnished; clean and large by Japanese standards, though small bathroom. There was an impressive selection at breakfast; a lot of Japanese-style foods (very good), but also fruit, yoghurt, breads and jams etc which might better suit some people's tastes. A 10-minute walk from plenty of restuarants and hotels. The hotel was simple; nothing... More

Easy to find. Easy check in (although for some reason they assumed my wife and I wanted a 3rd bed... and japanese wife told me the japanese written on the counter insinuated they would provide a 3rd "person" to sleep with you--typo, of course...) very roomy compared to japanese hotel rooms... bath was definitely Japanese size, though. Beds fine, no... More

Stayed here one night. Rooms very large, clean and comfortable. Location excellent with many good restaurants and bars close by. Bed very comfortable, rates reasonable, breakfast good. The service was friendly at the front desk and at the breakfast service. Staff very willing to help all round. Highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

Spent 2 nights in the hotel: Pros: - Nice and clean room. Large and very new. - Great breakfast. - GREAT STAFF. They all speak little English (level varies), but they will invariable go out of their way to help and communicate. Even look up words in their smartphones. After a few days in Okinawa, you lean to appreciate this.... More

We spendt one night at this hotel before heading out to the islands. I thought the size of the room was quite big for japanese standards and the morning breakfast was decent. The staff were friendly and helpful in advising us on evening dinners options nearby. The furniture of the room makes the hotel look older and a bit outdated.... More

The hotel is clean three star no frills hotel with central location. At JPY 7,140 per person p.n. (inc breakfast), I would consider it a bit pricey for the no frills hotel rooms. Postives: - Good location, only 7 min walk to Ishigaki-jima Ritto Ferry Terminal and 15 min walk to center of town for shopping/restaurants. Hotel is next to... More

This is a business hotel with several everyday Japanese couples and families. Not for romantics. Very clean and practical. Every other floor is a non-smoking floor. They set out an entire breakfast every morning, includes a hot dish. In the lobby they have an entire computer set-up with printer and fax. Having brought my own computer, I stayed in touch... More
