The hotel feels a bit like a Japanese version of Premier Inn or Travelodge minus the comfy beds. I was slightly put off by the fact that there were smoking rooms, surely a health-conscious nation like Japan would have caught up with the rest of the world and introduce a non-smoking policy in all public buildings by now?

A short taxi ride to the hotel covered by the hotel. Very clean room, yes it is on the smaller side but for 2 people for 1 night it is perfect. Close to the historical area and castle. Would definitely stay again. Travelling around Japan on a 7 day rail pass, so hotels near stations are great.

We have stayed in a Dormy Inn previously and were impresed. This hotel, smaller in a smaller town, did not disappoint us. The hotel is a short taxi ride from the station and well located for the Hirosaki Castle and, for us, the snow lantern festival - only about a 7 minute walk. The hotel staff were very helpful and...

I have never been in Hirosaki and was looking for a hotel with hot spring bath, walking distance to Castle and reasonable price...well, I found this one! It was bit difficult to find the hotel because we did not have GPA - but if you are driving, look for the sign to Hirosaki University Medical Center. It is a block... More

When I arrived at the hotel, I was blown away by the warm hospitality of the staff. The room was very clean, almost like it was never touched. The spa on the top floor was amazing with a gorgeous view of the mountains. I highly recommend this hotel!

The location of this hotel is good although its not close to the JR station. Its an easy walk to the castle and castle grounds which was why I was in Hirosaki. I believe there is a free taxi service which meets at the "apple" at the JR station, but we didn't know until we got there. The room was... More

To be honest, my expectations were very high after the fabulous time I had in Dormy Inn's sister chain hotel La Vista. So I was a little disappointed with Dormy Inn, although it is a good hotel, with all said and done. Luckily I read the earlier reviews, and found out there is a free taxi service between the JR...

I am quite pleased with my stay in this hotel. I would have rated this as excellent had it been next to the JR Station. That said, the hotel provides transport free of charge (arrangement with local taxi) to/fro station. When I arrived, I was lucky enough the Tourist Information Center staff at the station's ground floor pointed me to... More

I stayed at a single room for a night in early snowy January. I go to Hirosaki about every month and know most of the hotels with the same price range, but this hotel is definitely the best. The price is unbelievably reasonable. The hotel is super clean, the room is very stylish and efficient, and yes, the hot spring... More
