“A very good deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2011

We stayed three nights in a double room at the Hotel Active for the 3 day Hiroshima summer kimono festival. The room was small but well presented. The hotel provides excellent value with a complimentary buffet breakfast and free coffee and internet all day.
Streetcar stop (M5) is just outside the hotel - which is well located next to the shopping and nightlife areas.

The only negative is the room size which is small - even by Japanese standards and the lack of space either side of the bed did diminish our sleep quality - but the twin rooms are designated as smoking - so those were not suitable for us.

Room Tip: Room would be perfect for smaller people

Stayed for two nights in May 2011. Great hotel. Great spot in Hiroshima. Free internet. Buffet style all you can eat complimentary breakfast. Free hot chocolates and coffees at the end of each floor. Couldn't ask for more really. Room neat, compact and cosy for Japan standards but it has everything you should need. Would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed here 2 nights. The price is amazing! we paid in cash so very cheap rooms. The room itself was small but modern. Most rooms are small in Japan anyway especially if its not expensive. If you want space you'll have to pay for it.

The staff were friendly and spoke excellent english. Internet downstairs in lobby. Location was good and close to transport if you're not the walking type. We walked everywhere and it was fine.

Basically, I would stay here again when I go back to Hiroshima without looking at other options!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2010

Stayed here for two nights in October. The hotel is perfect for a short stay. The rooms are not large but very few rooms are large in Japan. The location is very good and within walking distance to the main attractions and nightlife. It’s close to the tramline stop and therefore easy to get to the train station and the ferry terminal.

Found a wonderful warm welcome at BLKS sports bar in the Ebisucho district (across the main road from the hotel) and they recommended that we try Okonomiyaki (don’t leave Hiroshima without trying it) at the Fumichan restaurant - excellent. We also had had dinner at Bokuden (4-20 Horikawa-cho) – this is a fantastic Korean restaurant with a great atmosphere and wonderful staff. English menus available in both restaurants.

Miyajima Island is a great day trip from Hiroshima and the trip (cable car and lots of steps to climb) to the highest point is so rewarding - fantastic views and a sense of peace and tranquillity.

First of all I have to say, that for the price you pay you get a good value. It is a stylish place with a nice lobby and free breakfast.

The hotel is conveniently located (about 4 stops from Hirsoshima Station) and within walking distance to the A-Bomb Dome, the Peace Memorial Park as well as the Shopping district.

The room is quite small with an even smaller bathroom, but if you are just there for one or two nights it is enough.

The thing we did not like about this hotel is the musty smell of our room when you enter. Even after opening the windows overnight, the smell did not vanish.

This is a great hotel. The location is close to the train station (4 tram stops away.) It was only 7500 JPY which is cheap for a hotel in Japan. It is walking distance from a very nice shopping area. You can catch the tram to the Peace Memorial Park and the train to Miyajima Island. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was small but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was exceptional. They offered smoked salmon, eggs, rice, soups, juice, fruit cocktail, sausage, tea and coffee. We will stay here every time we come to Hiroshima.

We stayed here on a two night break to Hiroshima and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The price worked out at around £60 per night for two of us bed and breakfast. The rooms are quite small but the facilities such as free hot drinks on each floor and the vast breakfast buffet completley make up for that. I did struggle with the online booking form that (using Google translator) appeared to say the requested dates were full, however when I e-mailed the hotel directly they made my reservation and were very friendly.

Great location, clean and top value!
