A short walk from the west exit from Akita station; easy to find using the map on the hotel brochure. Friendly and obliging reception staff, who kept our cases on arrival and departure as our train timings were not in line with check in and check out times. They were also helpful in providing information on the rather limited local... More

Richmond is proud of their services provided, from the moment check in to check out, I am all happy with it. The room is also modern and stylish. I was having fever during my stay, I borrowed their thermometer and measure the temperature in the lobby, the staff are helpful and still carrying smile, but they didn't have intention to... More

Spent two night during a business trip. Very close to the JR station. Rooms are fine and food is good. Small gripes: 1) Get rid of the stinky shower curtain 2) plastic dishes at breakfast. Otherwise, I would go back to this hotel again when I visit Akita.

I booked this hotel online because it was very near the train station and apparently in the middle of Akita City's activity. I've been in Japanese hotels before so I was expecting tight quarters. I am soooo glad that I was wrong. My friends and I arrived quite late in the evening but the reception staff was on their toes... More

As others have stated the RIchmond Hotel is conveniently located near the Akita train station. There are many places to eat, convenience stores, and near the station there's a department store. You can buy breakfast groceries and keep it in you refrigerator to cut cost and avoid going out every morning. There is a microwave available for use at the... More

I've stayed in another hotel in Akita, but wasn't very excited about it, so decided to try this one. This will now always be my go-to hotel for Akita! I stayed for one week with my daughter, in a Comfort Twin room that was a corner room. It was very spacious for a Japanese hotel. We had two comfortable beds,... More

We checked-in to this hotel for 1 night on the 10 December 2013. The room decor is nice and hotel staff were very friendly. The most important thing is that the hotel reception is able to converse in English.

I stayed here back in Apr, and after debating which hotel to book initially, I think I have picked the right choice ! The hotel is only 5min walk from station. Like all other Richmond hotels in Japan (I have stayed in a few), this one is clean, modern, well managed and very good deal for the price I pay... More

A very comfortable hotel with only a short walk to the railway station. The staff were very helpful with excellent English skills. We used the hotel a as abase to explore the countryside of north Honshu. Would recommend on the basis clean of friendly staff, clean rooms and good value for cost.
