We stayed at this hotel because it was so convenient to the buses we needed to take. We were worried that it would be noisy but it wasn't. The desk clerks were VERY helpful with various questions we had. Also we appreciated having a washer/dryer since we'd been traveling a long time. The room itself was comfortable, small, and the...

This is admittedly an old hotel. BUT...it is very well positioned. Below this hotel is the bus terminal so its easy to go to the airport. Within 5-7 minutes is the Kumamoto castle which is one of the major tourist spots. Also, within 3-5 minutes are several local restaurants and nightlife activities.

Hotel was very central in bus terminal. Big dept store next door, Daiso, market & McDonald's downstairs. Walking distance to shopping arcade and other dept. stores. Room kind of musty smell but window allowed for fresh air. Carpet were dirty and bath area small.

This hotel is very convenient for Kumamoto Castle and the shopping arcades (it is placed over the main bus station): from the Shinkansen station it is a short taxi ride (1000 Yens) or just a few tram stops (tram is not convenient if you have any luggage, even it is hand luggage). The rooms are very dated, and there is... More

The hotel had a musty smell, tattered furniture and a very uncleared feel. Water from the previous guest remained in the hot pot and complaints about the smell was responded with "use the air freshener provided in the room", however the freshener wasn't refilled when the room was made. The hotel staff was generally very cordial and friendly besides the... More

This hotel is possibly one of the worst hotels I have stayed. The hotel is quite poorly maintained and it is very dusty. It is badly in need of major refurbishment. Only the rooms are air conditioned, but not the corridors . I was in Japan during summer, which made my stay in the quite uncomfortable. Worst of all, they... More

I thought I'd previously submitted a review on the Kotsu Centre Hotel but it looks like it disapeared into the electronic void. We stayed here twice on this trip. The Kotsu Centre is the main bus terminal in the city with the hotel directly sited above it. Hence the name. The lobby is on the 3rd floor. There isn't much... More
