We stayed at Chizuru Ryokan for one night in mid July 2013.
I had read the few reviews of this ryokan on TripAdvisor prior to booking - so I had some high expectations. I was aware that the ryokan would be simple (in terms of furnishings, no meals etc), which is in fact the case.
Chizuru is in the perfect location - walking distance to the Peace Park, Hiroshima Castle, Shukkeien Garden and Hondori Street. If walking isn't your thing (or it's just too hot!), the ryokan is 2 minute walk from the closest streetcar station. So if you're looking for a good base in Hiroshima, this is your place!
The inn itself is simple (as mentioned above), but traditional. Showers are downstairs, toilets are upstairs with the (few) rooms. Showers and toilets are shared - but I never ran into anyone during my 1 day stay and I'm fairly certain the inn was fully booked.
The family (who live downstairs) are brilliant! They were very welcoming and chatty.
I recommend Chizuru Ryokan, regardless of your budget.
