I stayed in this hotel during a visit to Hiroshima in late May of 2005. The hotel is centrally located and it was a comfortable walk to the main attractions of Hiroshima such as the Peace Memorial and the Art Museum and Gardens. The room I stayed had a nice view of the river. The room was spacious, the bedsheets and towels were almost like new. In fact, the entire hotel seemed like new. Breakfast was included in the price of the room and it was quite good. The staff was courteous and friendly. Of the five different hotels I stayed in during my trip to Japan, this was the best one.
