The rooms are new, modern and clean. I think they have the best rooms in Aomori city. The staff are very friendly and helpful too. The only downside is the inconvenient location. It's pretty far walk from Aomori Station and there are not many restaurants or shops nearby. If you don't mind long walk or taking taxi all the time,... More

From the outside, it doesn't look very inspiring. However, inside it was very pleasantly decorated, with friendly and helpful staff. The room was comfortable. Within walking distance of the station and the Nebute museum, as well as the ferry memorial site. (About 25 mins) Use a taxi when carrying luggage though. Breakfast was a buffet with Western and Japanese dishes... More

I stayed in this hotel on 22 & 26 November 2014. The first night was fine. The room was new and clean with enough air-conditioning. The staff was friendly and helpful. In general, it gave me a very good impression. However, when I stayed there for the 2nd night, I got a non-smoking room full of the smell of smoke.... More

This hotel is an absolute gem. It is totally unlike many Japanese hotels. It is new or has been refurbished. Rooms are much larger than the regular Japan size. Staff are excellent. They are highly skilled, supportive and willing to assist wherever possible. The hotel itself is about a 10 minute taxi ride from Aomori (JR) station costing about 900yn.... More

It was our first visit to Aomori and we were very happy that stayed in the Richmond hotel. It has very convenient location (10 min walk from Aomory JR station). Rooms are comfortable and big enough. Staff is high-skilled and very kind. Every morning we enjoyed tasty and diversified buffet breakfast. When booked we were not asked credit card number.

We stayed here one night recently and this hotel was a delight. The rooms have a sort of modern Scandinavian feel, with breezy white shears and light colored wood furniture. Although the room was small, it was designed so two people could sit and read or work. Note that the lobby is on the 5th floor of the building. In... More

Booked during Hirosaki Cherry Blossom Festival so the rate was a bit expensive. Although the hotel is not far but as most tourist spots are around or nearby the train station, so we had to use taxi from/to the hotel to every place. We stayed in the Hollywood Room which was very nice and spacious. Breakfast was adequate and simple.... More

The hotel is a 15-min walk from the Aomori train station. However, the walk is very pleasant as you will pass by a lot of shops and restaurants.

We booked this hotel for a five night stay in Aomori because there was an offer on for room rates. The website was very easy to navigate.
