“Good and affordable ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

The breakfast was okay, with a small selection of western dishes! The room size was good, as far as the Japanese standard goes! Nice location: 20 minutes walk from the peace park! Many good restaurants are located in the nearby streets! Overall nice bang for your bucks!

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

Typical tiny rooms though very clean. Quiet and mostly business men staying here (from my observation). They offer pajamas though adverage sized westerner would never fit!! Great value and would definately stay here again!! Japanese style breakfast available in the morning and tea, coffee and ice water available 24/7 in lobby. Wifi only available in lobby which is a bit of a bummer.

The location for this hotel isnt the best, although its also not bad at all- close enough to downtown Hiroshima. the breakfast was good but the space was small - it felt like they couldnt seat everyone there....the room was nice although I personally was not a fan of the odd decor- it felt a little cold. That being said, its not a bad choice for a business hotel.

Room Tip: My room was next to the neon sign for the hotel that they turned off only after I asked, so it was s...

Loved the room we were given. Very clean. Cute little sofa. Many amenities were provided in the room (hair dryer, iron, ironing board, refrigerator, robes, and house slippers amongst other items like shampoo and conditioner). Loved the free breakfast and 24hr drinks in lobby. Also, I believe my brother said laundry detergent was provided. Only thing we had to get used to was the lobby being on the 2nd floor. Would definitely recommend.

Yes it was a spartan little room by my standards, but overall clean and comfortable. If I had 2 or more people I would have been cramped. The "hardwire" internet in the room would not work for me, but the lobby wi-fi did. It was funny, hanging out in the lobby, there was a loudspeaker playing a music-box version of "Close To You" over and over again.

Staff seems nice, however they only speak a little English as it seems like mostly Japanese from other parts of the country stayed here. The breakfast is hearty enough and had several options, you could sample a bit of everything. Note, they gave me these 2 "Que" gift cards on check-in which you should use just like money in some convenience stores, etc. They don't take them everywhere, so search "How do I use que card in Japan?" online to figure it out, as that's real bonus money (5000 yen per card) you should try to spend on food or some fun souvenirs.

This hotel is fairly new and so the rooms were in excellent condition. The room are small, which I think is not unusual for Japan. The free Wifi was only available in the reception area of the hotel, not in the rooms as mentioned by an earlier reviewer. The location was ideal for our visit, as it was about half way (10-15 minute) walk from the station and a similar walk to the Peace Park. As the name suggests its in a fairly central part of the city, so walking to shops and restaurants was also very easy. The "free" breakfast wasn't great, but part of that might down to my preferences at breakfast time. Overall, I'd be happy to stay here again.

perfect location (central, next to main tram lines, close to train station and peace park), comfy rooms (small), breakfast could be better (however you get unlimited beverages during your stay), good value for money
