This hotel was easy to get to on the streetcar from Hiroshima Station. So glad we booked a place close to Peace Park/Museum, rather than near the station. We stayed two nights. The first afternoon, we strolled to Peace Park and surrounding areas, then easy walk back to hotel for a break, before heading out again.
We found hotel to be really good value. Good sized room, fridge, TV (all japanese stations), robes, good shower pressure, free ice from vending machine a couple of floors down, ethernet internet connection in room (wifi in lobby). Hotel also seems to hire out just about everything you need "for free" - bicycles, umbrellas, internet "booster" if needed, and ... would you believe ... toenail clippers! (we passed that one up!). They also hire out laptops if required for around AUD$5.00 a day.
Breakfast was included - a weird and wonderful mix of western and japanese food, including german potato salad. Be warned, if you go for breakfast around the time the working business travellers are there, food will run out quickly. They do replenish it though, up until about half an hour before breakfast closes.
Also had a great (and very cheap) lunch at a confusing restaurant just down the road. Menus outside, but faced with machines when inside. You pick what you want from menu, find the pic on machine (including beers etc), put money in, tickets come out. Put tickets on table and staff will collect them and deliver drinks/food. Very confusing at first as staff don't speak english, and we don't speak Japanese (we were waiting for 2 cans of beer to come out of machine)! Hand signs, smiles, patience, and much pointing eventually solved the problem and we had a delicious (and very generous) lunch and two beers for under $20 AUD for two people. We weren't starving at dinnertime due to the good lunch, so just headed to nearby 7/11, bought some wine, and as is the norm in Japan, they had a great selection of tasty japanese food to choose from, already cooked, reheated in-store, then ate it in our room.
A very good stay!
Peace Park and museum are the sobering highlights of this visit - a must do experience. We really enjoyed Hiroshima. It was very different to what we expected; to our surprise had a very positive vibe to it. Also a beautiful city, with its rivers and gardens.
