“comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

This hotel is an excellent value. Blue Wave Inn Hiroshima is located roughly half-way between the Peace Park and JR station. You can either take a streetcar for 150 yen from the station, or if you have a backpack, it is an easy ramble. The hotel is a little off the main road, on one of the smaller streets to the south, just past the bridge. When I checked in, the deskclerk spoke English. The room was clean and modern, and most importantly - the bed was comfortable! I cannot stay at Toyoko or Super Hotels - their beds are much too firm for me. I had no noise problems, and everything in my room worked perfectly, including the TV, the AC, the shower, the teapot, and the LAN connection. For the money I paid (about $80) I would definitely recommend Blue Wave Inn for a solid night's sleep. An added bonus is that it is an easy, pleasant river-side stroll from the hotel to the excellent Hiroshima Museum of Contemporary Art.

The only downside to this hotel was the 10 am checkout time. But perhaps if one asked in advance, one could arrange a more humane 11am checkout.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

We stayed two nights at Blue Inn in Hiroshima. An advantage is the location of this hotel: just 10 minutes by foot from the dome and the memorial parc. The rooms are a bit oldfashioned and very noisy (from the streets). They have free internet on the rooms and a hot water pot with green tea. Staff is very friendly.
