We stayed here for one night on 3 March on our way to Hokkaido. It was a good spot to break up the journey from Kyoto. The hotel is about a 10 minute taxi ride from the Shin Aomori station. Taxi fares are so cheap in Japan. We discovered when we left the next day that the hotel is actually... More

I went to Aomori for business and I spent two months in Richmond Hotel. So I will say that I know well the hotel.hihi. It's a luxurious hotel with a modern decoration. And it's close to the most active area in Aomori. You will be served by a very professional staff. (Nice ppl).

Richmond Hotel Aomori is an exceptional hotel with all the good points you would expect for this price. Accessibility is the only negative point for this hotel. Hotel lobby is located at the 5th floor with 3 electronic checkout machines like ATM. The lobby is tastefully decorated and very spacious. Within the same building, there were restaurants like Tony Roma’s... More

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

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
