“Good priced business hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Hotel for Japan was quite good. Was not too close to downtown but right along the river and close to mass transit locations. Food choices around the hotel were also very good. Hotel staff was friendly although many new little to no English. Breakfast offered both western and Japanese style food. Hotel was quite and the rooms were small but adequate for the amount of time spent in each room

My husband and I (older folks) stayed here for four nights being in town for a couple family events. The reception staff were very hospitable and kind. We ate one dinner here and it was pretty good. (We were the only ones in the dining room). The waiter was nice but wasn't able to answer some of our questions (My husband is Japanese and I speak Japanese so that wasn't the problem). Breakfasts, good choices available. We had one lunch on the terrace next to the river - loved this and the lunch set was very reasonable in price.

Because we came back from an outing just after lunch, our room cleaning was not yet finished. The person doing the room immediately went to our room while we waited in the lobby. She called down to the desk to tell us it was ready. Very nice service.
Although we like a firm mattress, ours were a little to hard. The room decoration was simple and tasteful.
Liked the smallness of the hotel.

One negative - smoking allowed in one open part of the lobby.

Location- we walked to the wonderful Hiroshima Prefectural Museum. Do not miss it.

Yes, we would stay here again.

This is a business hotel, smaller than some of the mammoth hotels we stayed in elsewhere in Japan, and with one single restaurant. JAL City is a chain, and we were expecting something of a budget fee to this stayl, but were pleasantly surprised. The rooms themselves were clean, modern and smart, and not a bad size for Japanese hotels. The pull-out washing line over the bath was a real boon. I disliked the fact that there was a mini-bar rather than just a fridge, with the usual overpriced drinks, and that the tea and coffee was similarly exorbitant if you chose to use it. However, the beds were outstanding. As far as I'm aware, all the rooms are twin-bedded rather than double, but each bed is (I think) 4ft wide, and the bedlinen is of excellent quality. Firm mattresses as with everywhere we stayed in Japan, but an exceptionally good night's sleep - the whole family commented on how blissfully comfortable we had all been. The rooms are a little on the dark side because the windows are actually quite small, and the policy seems to be to leave the aircon off when the room is unoccupied, which is fair enough from a green point of view. This extends to the corridors, which are not air-conditioned at all. We visited at the height of summer with temperatures up to 40 degrees, and stepping out of your room and into the corridor was like jumping into a steam bath - quite a shock, and made you grateful for the efficient aircon in the room! The restaurant had a basic but decent menu and was not too expensive in comparison to some of the hotels we stayed in - we ate there one night and enjoyed the food. The view from the rooms over the river was nice, and there's a riverside terrace area off the dining room that would probably be a very pleasant place to sit out and eat or drink in slightly cooler weather. The hotel is about a 5-minute walk from the railway station, and convenient for Hiroshima Castle and the other attractions. We were quite happy with our stay here, and would have enjoyed another night in this hotel had our timetable permitted.
