“Best Hotel we stayed in Japan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2010

While travelling in Japan we stayed at budget hotels, dormy inn was definitely the best in terms of value for money.

Rooms were clean and comfortable

Also within walking distance of the peace park.

Staff were friendly and spoke english well, also 2 computers with intrernet access in the loby for free use (and they worked!).

I stayed here last week we caught the Bullet from Kyoto to Hiroshima. The hotel is just a short tram ride from the Railway Station - however you can arrange for a shuttle bus to pick you up if you contact them early. The hotel's rooms are small but comfortable. The highlight is the Onsen bath on the top floor - a great relaxation after a few hours on the bullet. Staff spoke English well and were very helpful. Very close to Peace Museum which is must to go to.

Typical western-style hotel rooms with bathrooms, very clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and could communicate well in English.
Location was very good with plenty of restaurants within a few mins walk and the tram journey to the station took around 20mins.
Laundry facilities were available free of charge (inc detergent). An onsen is also available.
Good selection of food for breakfast.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2010

This is a 'business hotel' - in other words, not a luxurious place but more geared towards clean, adequate, user-friendly accommodation. Judged by that criteria, it succeeds. It is located near the peace park but a fair distance from the rail station. Since you will likely be going to the peace park that shouldn't be a big problem - especially with Hiroshima's excellent tram service.

I particularly liked the onsen on the top floor. It was unpretentious but comfortable. The 'semi-double' was fine for a night or two for a 'reasonably sized' couple. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Limited english spoken.

The prices in Hiroshima are less than most of Japan and this hotel is a good economical option that I would recommend.

I found the people of Hiroshima to be extremely friendly. A woman in a small fishing tackle shop gave my wife a present just so she would "remember this day". That was typical of the attitude we met in this city. By all means try the local version of ekonomiyaki. Only down side was a Korean barbeque that served pig-fat - those are the problems when you can't read the menu!

I only stayed one night in the hotel. It is very close to the restaurant/shopping/bars area and also to the peace memorial park which make it a perfect location for a short stay in the city. Place was spotless, room was small as all in Japan but bigger than average, for that price (around €65 for a double) we got fantastic value

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2010

On my three-week vacation in Japan, I normally stayed at guest houses and ryokans, but wanted to have a western-style bed for a couple nights, so I stayed at Dormy Inn in Hiroshima. The location was convenient for what I wanted and served its purpose. The room was small, but I had privacy with my own bathroom and own bed. All was clean. There isn't a view out the window, so no natural light.

Easy walk to the Peace Memorial Park and one tram ride to the train station to go to Miyajima. There was free internet access with computers in the lobby, baths on the top floor (didn't try them out), and laundry facilities (free wash, pay to dry) with Japanese instructions only on the machines.
