Stayed here with my girlfriend for a night while in Kakunodate -a small town known for its Sakura and samurai houses. The place is a cute, almost Ryokan looking place right by the train station (it’s not a Ryokan-it just looks like one). It’s a bit of a walk into town, but it’s not bad -a nice way to stroll through a quieter, more quaint side of Japan. The staff also were very friendly, and gave us free gifts and snacks (little mirrors with lacquered cherrywood finish and squid crackers). Breakfast was decent too, and is served in the little restaurant next to the lobby. The room is small (but so are almost all hotel rooms in Japan), but again cozy. The room we had was a two bed, so it’s not exclusive for couples.

We stayed here for a night while visiting Kakunodate and found it a satisfactory place to stay. It is modern and the rooms are well equipped and quiet. I expected noise given its proximity to the railway station but it is a small regional station with few movements particularly at night and noise was not intrusive. Staff were courteous and efficient and we dined in the restaurant and had nice meals for both dinner and breakfast. The hotel is not really distinctively Japanese and lacks the quirkiness of many country hotels but does everything you need well. Particularly for those travelling by train it is super convenient and it has adjacent parking if you are in a car. Be aware it is a trek to the main tourist areas but there are local buses you can use.

Apart from the minute's walk from the station, the staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. I stayed in a ground floor room which was a change (there were only two floors). The room was a large twin and there was a good restaurant attached to the hotel too.

I I was travelling alone by motorcycle, and the free parking was really convenient. For your information they have around 10 parking spaces directly behind the hotel. I stayed 1 night in a double twin due to the fact that the singles were already gone, but the price was still very competitive compared to hotels in the area. I was surprised how spacious the room was compared to what I usually get in Japan for this price range. The bathroom is also wide and comfortable even for taller people, I especially enjoyed the shower which was at a good height and had a powerful pressure. Free wifi is not secured with a password, but the speed is just fine. The convenient location does mean that on one side of the hotel you will be exposed to the train tracks. However I didn't experience any nuisance in my case, but then again I did check out very early. First restaurants and convenience stores are a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. Going to the Samurai district will take you around 15-20 minutes by foot. However if you don't feel like going to the town centre for dinner, you can use the restaurant of the hotel. If you do go out, you have to leave your (large) room key at the front desk. Also it is necessary to inform the staff if you will return past a certain time (I believe it was 23:00). The staff themselves were very helpful, and their level of English was adequate. They were happy to help with recommending a restaurant in town, and assisting me with my early checkout. When I asked for some tissues to clean the visor of my helmet, they even let me keep the entire pack which I very much appreciated. All in all a great budget hotel, clean and spacious, conveniently located and helpful staff.

This historic town is on the Akita shinkansen line so the access is easy. There aren't many hotels in Kakunodate proper, so your choice is pretty limited, but saying that, I'd choose this small hotel even if there were lots of choices. The staff are very welcoming. We stayed in a standard twin room - peeking in the deluxe rooms, I wish we'd have been able to snag one of those, but they were booked months ahead by a (small) tour group. The buffet breakfast was good, and we ate dinner both nights there as well because we didn't feel like walking back outside into town. It doesn't have its own onsen/sento (public bath) so we went into town and used the one there. Worth the walk.
