Comfort Hotel Hikone

Reviewed July 17, 2014

I spent about two weeks in the Comfort Hotel while working at Shiga University. It's plain but very clean and very convenient to the JR Hikone station. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room, although small, was very functional. The breakfast was good but not great. The price was very reasonable. The only drawback is that to get across the tracks to the city and castle (and university) you have to walk through the train station. The price was very reasonable and I would stay here again.

Very close to Hikone station, we had both single and twin rooms booked for our party and both were very clean and comfortable with a nice breakfast included in the very reasonable price.
A tip for all of these Business Budget hotels that are all over Japan is that the rooms are small and often ,not always, 2 single rooms rather than a twin room will give you extra space per person and often at the same price as a double room - a few times 2 rooms were cheaper. Probably not for those on honeymoon but for a bit of serious travelling we found it worked well.

We enjoyed our stay at the Comfort Hotel in Hikone, Japan. The location is very convenient, just across the street from the JR Hikone Station. Probably a 2 minute walk.

Check-in was easy. They have free wifi in the rooms (ask for the password and user ID when checking in, they had it handwritten on a piece of paper). The room was very clean and modern looking. The room was standard business size for Japan but enough room for the two of us and our suitcase.

Continental breakfast is included in the price. We paid 8500 yen (approx $85 at the time). The breakfast was pretty good, but nothing to write home about. There was a mix of onigiri (rice balls), runny scramble eggs, croissants and breads to toast yourself. Cereal, miso soup, orange juice, coffee, tea, etc. Go early if you want to eat certain things. Certain items, like the croissants, once they run out, they don't replenish. The breakfast area was quite busy the Wednesday morning we were there.

The hotel is fairly close to Hikone Castle...about a 20 minute brisk walk. We ran out of time and didn't make it to the Castle but did take a quick walk down Castle Road.

The hotel is right next to a busy highway, but luckily once the windows are closed, you don't hear the vehicles on the highway. There was an air conditioner in the room which we used for a bit but we couldn't figure out how to turn the vents upward. The remote was in Japanese and there weren't any English instructions in the information book. We could've asked the front desk, but decided not to.

We didn't need anything from the front desk after we checked in and we were there only one night so we can't comment on service from the front desk after we checked in. The front desk held our luggage after check out which most Japanese hotels do at no charge.

We didn't drive, so I don't know the parking rates.

No restaurant on property but there are many restaurants on the other side of the station.

Our photos of the room are the same as other people have posted so we're not posting any photos.

The Comfort Hotel Hikone is located just across the street from Hikone station, not towards city and castle, but the opposite direction. Checkin staff was very friendly and helpful, with sufficient knowledge of english. The rooms were very large by japanese standards, clean, albeit a bit dull. The breakfast was included in our rate and was OK. The Hotel is a conveninet base to explore Hikone since the castle is a short walk (about 15 minutes) away from the hotel.

On the wrong side for the night life but apart from this, the hotel is fine for anyone on a budget. We had a twin room which was surprisingly large although with standard capsule bathroom. We arrived early and there was no problem storing our luggage. Staff were helpful throughout. Breakfast included, more than adequate. Hotel has WiFi in the rooms as well as hardwired for the internet. As mentioned earlier, conveniant for the castle - about a 15 minute walk.

From external appearances, it looks like the hotel is in a clearance site. I think it's on a new bypass on the wrong side of the tracks. It is also very sparingly built without decoration inside or out.

I'd definitely recommend it now while it is new but I'm unsure how well it will age.

It is modern in its outlook, having wifi throughout, including directions for signing on to it for all sorts of devices.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are the pretty average business hotel type - small but sufficient. Breakfast is included.

It's close to the station but a 15 minute walk from the Castle etc. It is certainly a good base for the train traveller. I'd stay here again.

Western style business hotel right next to station. Perfectly adequate but nothing exciting. Easy walk into town and to Hikone Castle.
