“Best quality-price relation in Hiroshima!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I can only say positive things about this hotel. It is very well located, only a 10 minutes walk from the Peace Memorial Park and with a tram station a few meters away. You can also reach the Hiroshima Station taking the tram and it's only 5 minutes. I stayed in a single room and I don't have any complain about the space, I think considering how hotels are in Japan my room was more than enough for one person. Bed was bigger than a normal single bed and also comfortable. If you have a laptop you can get internet in your room since there's a LAN cable in the room. Otherwise, you can use the free wifi at the lobby. Internet connection was good & fast. Room had everything you might need: hairdryer, sleepers, towels, fridge, boiler & tea, TV (only 4 japanese TV channels though...), DVD player, air conditioner, etc. Staff were very nice, maybe they didn't speak great english but they could make understand themselves. And price was very fair. I would totally recommend it!! Breakfast was not included in my rate but there is that option (for about 1000 yens), I didn't have it so I can't give an opinion about that. There is also a restaurant inside the hotel but I never ate there.
If I'd have to say something negative it would be that walls are like paper so you can basically here both neighbours snoring. However, for me that was not a problem since I used my earplugs and problem solved!

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.

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.
