I've stayed at a few Toyoko Inns and they are all great. They've all got a fairly good location, they come with breakfast and their staff have a reasonable command of english (enough for simple communication anyway).
The rooms are small of course but its big enough for me and there's enough space that you don't feel claustrophobic. The bed is comfortable, there's a tv, airconditioning and a small fridge. The bathroom is a bit small for my liking but well you can't have everything, its decent enough for the budget price that you're paying. Also the whole hotel and the rooms are very clean.
As for the location of Toyoko Heiwa Odori, it was okay. It was convenient but not very, very convenient, its a fair bit to walk to either the memorial or to the shopping area. Maybe 15 mins? I didn't time it but I remember walking quite a bit. And you know what? This is probably a short walk for some people anyway.
Also, they've got a shuttle car that drives you to Hiroshima Train Station every half an hour (I can't remember the intervals but quite frequent). I found this very convenient because the station really is quite far and when we left Hiroshima it was raining heavily, so thank goodness for this shuttle car! Also I guess I should mention that getting from Hiroshima station to the hotel can be complicated if visiting Hiroshima for the first time (unless you take a taxi of course). You've got to take a street car to a stop (can't remember which) and figure out how to pay the street car because you don't pay till you get off! Then you gotta walk another 15 mins to the hotel.
Anyway I'm not complaining, just stating what I went through. Great hotel, I loved it.
