We only stayed 1 night here, transiting to Appi Kogen to ski. Hotel is very easy to book through their website & is easy to get to - less than 5 mins walk in snow - which is great for us as we had to wheel our luggages to/fro hotel & train station. Hotel room is typical Japanese size -... More

Hotel room is a bit bigger than the other Japanese hotels that I have stayed in. Room is also very very clean. Be warned though that this hotel has the traditional public bath. This means there are no bath rooms inside the rooms (just toilets). If you want to take a bath, you need to go to the public bath... More

Walk out of the train station and look for tall tan tower building that is the Hotel Route Inn. Breakfast is included; no wifi in rooms but wired internet is available. Rooms are basic but clean and quiet. Restaurants are within a 2 minute walk. Morioka is not a tourist destination so enjoy being one of just a few westerners... More

This is basically a business hotel in a non-touristy destination, however, we were pleasantly surprised at the location, comfort and room view, but not at all surprised at the quality of the now expected level of Japanese staff service. However, the real surprise was how much we actually enjoyed Morioka itself.

For the money, the comfort and convenience of this hotel can't be beat. It's a business hotel, but it's relatively new, the rooms are a bit bigger than average, and the amenities are plentiful. I especially liked the big bath on the 14 floor. The breakfast was also quite good with lots of variety. I would definitely stay here again... More

Mainly a business hotel. Remember to take the south exit at Morioka station and the Route Inn is just across the road. Reception staff competent. Rooms are tiny, but the limited space is well utilised, with desk, fridge,TV, Wardrobe and hanging space - but not much room for luggage. Bathroom Is a reasonable size. Breakfast predominantly Japanese, but includes cocktail... More
