Situated inside JR Kanazawa Station, Via Inn is super convenient for transport. There are loads of shops and restaurants inside the station as well, even a super market downstairs at 2F. Hotel room is small but adequate, perfect for a short stay. Only downside I found is that breakfast choices are very limited. There are a few cafes open early... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night. As everyone wrote, the location is the best because the entrance is location in the Kanazawa Train Station. When we stayed it was raining and we had two big suitcases and the hotel kept our suitcases after check-out until our train departure time. There is a grocery store in the same station... More

If you're coming from another city to Kanazawa and want a convenient and affordable location, Via Inn is your best bet. If this is your first trip to the city and you're not sure of how to get around, this hotel is basically fool proof. Located within the Kanazawa station, the hotel is easy to find, with lots of food... More

The hotel itself was nice, the rooms small as common for these level of hotels. The location is very convenient only if you are coming in and out and not sightseeing much in the city- if you do want to see Kanazawa, its best to stay at a more downtown location to be able to enjoy the night life.

Steps outside Shinkansen station- very quaint hotel which is very suitable and like many other business hotels- only thing I would say is walks aren't so solid and I could hear even other's conversations which invariably kept me up- the souvenir shops downstairs offer everything you can imagine and there is taxi stands nearby and a convenient store for last...

The hotel is located in the Kanazawa station. Very convinance. The room was big enough, breakfast is served in a near by resturant. Bus station in front of the JR station. Front desk agents do not speak English well but were helpfull.

Hotel is right inside Kanazawa Station - extremely convenient. Prices are ok.. Highly recommend it if you are looking for a convenient location. No breakfast is provided in the hotel but you can buy a breakfast coupon from them and go to a near-by café/restaurant for breakfast. Wi-Fi is only available in the hotel lobby.

Our wonderful travel agent, Ari Westmoreland with IACE Travel, arranged nights at several of the Via Inn Hotels---Kanazawa, Nagoya and Shin-Osaka. The hotels are very nice with Beautyrest mattresses and very convenient to Japan Rail stations. The hotels are quiet and the Shin-Osaka breakfasts are great. The price is very reasonable.

A very basic one. But when taking into account the price and convenience, I consider this hotel deserves a Very Good rating. When I stayed here for three days in the first week of 2013 with snow fall throughout out. Because the hotel is right above the JR station and in front of the well equipped bus teminal, I didn't...

The big thing going for the hotel is that it is lierally above the train station, in the same complex. The entrance is on the same level as the tourist office. The hotel itself is just a general Japanese business hotel. That means no English channels on the TV and strict check-in and check-out times. The room we had seemed... More
