“Very friendly hostess”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2009

We booked this ryokan over the phoen (in English). The lady didn't speak much English but did her best.

When we arrived, she was at the door and gave us a wholehearted welcome! After showing us the room, then she proceed to tell us all the attractions around the hotel (Peace Museum, etc) within walking distance and where we could get cash, food catch the tram, etc. Very friendly hostess. She also takes a picture in from of the ryokan with all her guests (there's one full wall with all the pics).

The room is rather small but with all the things you need. I'd recommend it if you are not staying for very long.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2008

Booked thru Hostelworld.com

Got some bug bites outside the door so use repellent. It's nearby the waterway. Very steep stairs which are not very deep so if you're wearing those mandatory slippers which never fit can be quite dangerous!

It's quite hot upstairs but the A/C does work well. No privacy in the wash area; no door; not a room really; just a sink and vanity in the hallway. Shower area is adequate downstairs under the stairs.

Location is just OK kind of a long ride on the trolley from the JR station but if you're going to Miyajima anyways you're kind of halfway there. Ryokan is half a block from the trolley.

Owner is a lady who tries to be very helpful, but English is limited. Best to give her a map and have her draw the directions. Not a lot around the hotel in terms of stores.

  • Liked — A/C worked well
  • Disliked — Room weren't too soundproof; could hear each person walking on the floor or using the wash area.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2008

My husband and I stayed at this Ryokan for 2 nights on our recent trip to Japan. We were able to book online in English through the Welcome Inn website. The Inn is conveniently located within walking distance of the Peace Park/museum and city, and also very close to the tram line for going to the JR station at the other end of town, or getting to town if you don’t feel like walking. The rooms were quite small compared to other ryokans we stayed at but they were comfortable and contained everything we needed. The toilet/bathroom facilities were clean and convenient and the dining room contained lots of tourist information on sights in the area. The hostess is able to communicate in English and was very helpful and organised. Paying by credit card is also very convenient, but be warned you may be asked to pay in advance! We were a bit taken aback by this but it seems that there isn’t always someone at reception so they prefer you to pay first so they don’t have to worry about missing you when you leave. Overall we found Ryokan Sansui to be a very pleasant place to base ourselves while visiting Hiroshima.
