The City Hotel Andoh is a Business Hotel located about 2 minutes walk from Iwakuni Station on the JR Sanyo line . Rooms are clean and comfortable . Good service .
For those who don't know what Business Hotels are , they are hotels with small comfortable rooms and are generally located close to main transport stations . They are frequently used by businessmen hence the term business hotel .
The hotel is built above shops ( on a corner ) on one of the main streets . The main street entrance is up a flight of stairs to the 2nd floor . NOTE in Japan the 1st floor is street level . The main entrance complete with lift ( elevator ) is on a back street parallel to the main street . Just turn right at the corner , right again , and your there . Japanese breakfast was excellent . Sorry can't remember if that was included in our twin room price of Yen 9,700 . The hotel has a coin laundry . This is a major plus in my opinion .
There is a regular bus service between the Sanyo Line station and Iwakuni Shinkansen station . Trip takes 30 minutes . The famous Iwakuni bridge is about half way .
When you visit the bridge, you have to pay to cross it so buy the pass which includes the cable car up to the castle on the hills above . It's well worth it.
Bookings for it can be made through a Japanese Travel Site called Rakuten . To access it use [--]
