Not recommended at almost 8k yen per night with many other better hotels such as JR Kyushu Kumamoto close by. We checked in with a broken sofa, run down furniture, broken avian net at the balcony and badly scratched toilet bowl - I felt like waking into a hotel in the 80s. They still using room key with bulky key... More

Picked this hotel because I was going to a concert at Grand Messe Kumamoto and because they have an artificial hot spring onsite. But I only manage to soak in there for once or twice. I was having difficulty in opening the door, as they locked the female bath for security. It was well located as it was just across... More

Only a 5 minutes walk away from the station -- where you can catch the A-line tram that takes you to the impressive castle --, a bit hidden behind a car rental office. Friendly and helpful staff. The room is noisy and small, not attractive. Free wifi in the room. It looks like it is about time for a renovation.... More

I generally had quite a pleasant stay as the room was quite big with all the essentials. However the parking was a bit inconvenient. The first lv car park was rather narrow and small, we parked on the 2nd lv which was more spacious and had to carry our luggage up and down the stairs. Breakfast was not that nice... More

Close to the station and at weekends a very reasonable rate (Yen 10,000) for 2 including breakfast. Rooms was a good size with 2 large beds although bathroom is small (tell me where they are not small) but adequate. The public bath was excellent, bigger than expected and does not seem to be used much later in the evening. Breakfast... More

This hotel is in a convenient location, just across the street from Kumamoto train station and close to a streetcar stop to go to the city center. As always in Japan (in my experience), staff was courteous and efficient, and all premises were perfectly clean. There's a small onsen available, but we didn't use it. Everything was satisfactory, except that... More

Arrived in the evening for three nights. The first room I was given was on the top floor near the centre of the hotel. After being in the room for 30 mins I had to ask to change my room because some sort of motor or machinery in the roof space kept cutting in and out every 7 or 8... More
