The hotel is not luxurious but it is comfortable enough. The staff is very friendly but the great majority does not speak English. Rooms are small as in most japanese hotels but i foind it clean and quiet. Breakfast has a great variety in a buffet style but does not offer gluten free bread and, even if you bring your gf bread as I did, it does not have butter, only margarine. Gluten intolerant people will be able to eat rice, sweet potatoes and some salad. There are no fresh fruits. It’s very hard in general to communicate that you are gluten free in Kumamoto as they do not seem to have a word for gluten. Finally, the hotel is very close to the castle, and despite being closed, it’s worth to walk on its surroundings. Also, there are many restaurants and shops at a 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel.

The hotel lies right across the Kumamoto castle giving a nice view of the castle. Unfortunately due to the reconstruction work, the castle is not as visible as it used to be. The staffs were helpful but the room seemed a bit old that it requires renovation. The bed size was perfectly fine for one and the other amenities in the room all worked all good.

Ugly building from the outside. Inside a clean well-equipped room. Housekeeping didn't work Mondays but we were offered free breakfast instead. Upon our return from the breakfast (a well furnished buffet with Japanese and western fare) we found a bag with clean sheets, towels, tooth brushes etc.

The rooms are spacious for Japanese standards but not very clean. There was mold in the bathroom en the lighting in the room is inadequate. There was a light at the bed and at the entrance so in the evenings I could hardly see in this room. This neighbourhood is filled with hotels so I suggest you look further..
