“A bed to sleep in”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Its an old hotel, but situated right in front of the station. They do not accept credit card and this was a bit of a disappointment. There are many shops in the vicinity inside Hiroshima station. Do not plan to stay here again if I can avoid it. They do not speak english, but not much is required. Internet is free as usual, same as in all hotels in Japan. The vending machine on the floor was not working.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

Our party of six stayed for one night whilst visiting the A-bomb dome, Peace Museum and other sights in and around Hiroshima. The rooms were very small like in many other Japanese hotels, but we were out most of the time so this wasn't a concern. However, ventilation is a problem as we could not open the window for fresh air. Hotel management were all extremely friendly despite limited English. The location of this hotel is ideal - it is just a few minutes from Hiroshima JR station so there is no need for transport, .A good place for a night or two.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a non-smoking room on a higher floor to avoid traffic noise. The hotel overlooks a...

The location is excellent - 3 min walk from the station. Our triple room was very small but we were only staying for one night so it didn't bother us. This hotel is a great place to stay if you are in town for 1 or 2 nights.
