If in Japan, do forget about luxury hotels unless you are that type of fussy traveller.
If you visit Hiroshima and want to see what the city has got to offer, rather than lounge around in a hotel, then this is the place for you.
The hotel largely caters for Japanese businessmen and is best classed as a functional hotel.
It is conveniently located just across the road from the impressive JR Hiroshima Station. There is therefore no problem about finding the hotel late at night and no problem if you are carrying heavy luggage. (But do beware there is another Toyoko-Inn in Hiroshima. So do be careful finding your hotel after late night Sake drinking!)
Once in the hotel lobby, which is functional and not ornate, you meet the cheerful but efficient receptionists dressed in either bannana colured or strawberry ice cream coloured uniforms. Language can be a minor problem but their politeness offsets everything else.
The rooms are small but clean with the basic amneties.
Breakfast is served in the lobby and is a buffet style breakfast which, whilst not the best breakfast in the world, is quite adequate. Breakfast time also gives you a chance to talk to the Japanese businessmen.
Outside the hotel is the JR station from where you can get on a tram car and visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial and other attractions.
As I said before, it is the location which matters!
