“Nice choice near train station”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

There are not many choices near JR Station. The price was the lowest among the hotels in that area, but I still think it's a bit over-priced comparing with other hotels I stayed in my trip.

Room is very small. Everything you need could be found in the room, except for space. I have to put my suitcase near the door and could not keep it opened.

Free breakfast was provided. Food quality was OK considering it was free. Choices are limited. Self-serviced free drinks were also provided throughout the day. Laundry machines near the hotel lobby are free to use.

Staff generally understand basic English, if your question is not too difficult.

Location is near JR Hiroshima Station, Shinkansen side. It takes 8-10 min to walk there without luggage. If you need to access another side of the station for Local Lines/Trams/mall, you need to walk through a tunnel.

The Urbain Hiroshima Executive is located within 5 minutes walking distance from Hiroshima Main Station (take the "back" exit not facing the city center), turn right, then a few hundred meters. Checkin was very friendly and provided good advice. The rooms we had were normal for a japanese business hotel (=small) but in good condition and well equipped. The bathroom was not heated - a bit cold in winter. The small breakfast buffet was included. Nothing to write home about but absolutely OK. In summary a pleasant experience.

This is typicall business hotel, which is very good located - 5 mins walk from Hiroshima station.

The rooms are clean, but small. The breakfest is basic buffet, but very tasty and the soft drinks, tea and coffee are available 24h. There's hot indoor bath in the hotel.

Good point is that this hotel is next to the Hiroshima JR station, which is convenient for leaving early morning to go to the station or to do one day trips in the area which is mainly going to Miyajima. Hence, the hotel is providing directions to go there, just tell them you plan to go to Miyajima and they have all you need.
Breakfast was a bit small for eating western style food, but if you like Japanese breakfast it is more than satisfying.
Staff is great and room is small as for every hotel in Japan cities but still very clean and lightly.

For merely less than 6680 yen per per room for a double bed. They provide everything from TV to hair dryer. They even have a free channel for x rated shows. Their breakfast is free and the drinks available at the dining area is free flowing all days with juices and soft drink. about 10 mins walk from the main train station so very convenient. Look forward to stay at other urbain chains in other parts of Japan if available. They also have PC available free to use

If you do not mind the 10-15 minutes walk to the mainstreet (citycentre), the hotel is located very near the train station (shinkansen). You are at the north entrance and the quiet part of Hiroshima. Do not worry enough shops and restaurants are in the neighbourhood. The room is small but everything is there. Also here it is very clean. Amazing is the toilet. It has a heated seat and build-in bidet/shower. Breakfast is good. You have a choice between japanese and western style. Also during the whole day you can have free drinks. From coffee to lemonade. Wifi is only in the lobby but fast enough. I had a pleasant stay!

Very close to the JR station (just a few step away on the right of north exit). Rooms are quite small but very clean and a ladies welcome pack is offered. Breakfast was average in quality but huge in quantity. Free beverages and hot drinks in the lobby.
The hotel is very convenient for visiting Hiroshima ( Hiroshima castle, Shukkei garden and A-bomb dome) by foot. Departing from the JR station the JR line take you straight to Miya-jima.
Street-cars at the JR station south exit will take you downtown where you will enjoy local oysters and okomiyaki.
The staff is extraordinarily helpfull and kind.
