Even with the high occupancy during our summer holiday stay, they respond promptly to any issue or request. Clean and spacious room equipped with 2 queens, free and enough car parking spaces and buffet breakfast, smoking room on ground floor, coin laundry on sixth floor.

My husband and I stayed here on our recent trip to Ishigaki for his birthday. Great location! (which is the main reason why we chose it) We were able to walk to numerous restaurants, bars, sites, and most importantly, the port - where we could take boats to the other islands. We only rented a car one day while we... More

The location of the hotel is convenient. The hotel lobby is very nice. However, our non-smoking room, despite its big size, smelled of tobacco and had old furniture. There were no room replacement available, so our overall stay has not been that great.

I stayed here with my wife for two nights. I booked 'single room for couple use', however, the room and king-sized bed were larger than expected. Also, the bathtub was larger than that in the standard business hotel. Wi-Fi was free of charge and comfortable. It takes just five minutes to the center of the town by walking and the... More

Vessel Hotel is probably one of the best ones in the city of Ishigaki. It is in the middle of the city, so not a "resort hotel". It does not have swimming pools nor facing the beach. It doesn't even have restaurant, although breakfast is available. If you are a diver or an active traveller and usually don't stay in... More

As you mentioned in your review, our hotel rooms are half as spacious again as similar business hotel rooms, so they are very suitable for a family trip or a group trip.

Very comfortable and well-equipped room; fairly newly furnished; clean and large by Japanese standards, though small bathroom. There was an impressive selection at breakfast; a lot of Japanese-style foods (very good), but also fruit, yoghurt, breads and jams etc which might better suit some people's tastes. A 10-minute walk from plenty of restuarants and hotels. The hotel was simple; nothing... More
