“Nice spacious hotel in Kanazawa”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

I stayed here for 2 nights in early October 2013. Added value is the hotel shuttle bus (from West Exit of Kanazawa station in the Group Bus area). You can purchase a 500 yen 1-day bus pass from the hotel to use within the city area. JR bus (which is blue/white colour bus is excluded from this bus pass use) but you can use your valid JR rail pass to offset the bus fare. Just show the bus driver the JR rail pass on exit. On hindsight however I would not choose to stay in Kanazawa to shop even in the Korinbo area or if you are just viewing the Kenrokuen Garden or museum which has easy access from the train station. You can plan a day trip to Kanazawa instead. The bus station on the East Exit (#2 area) has buses to Toyama and other cities. To me, the shopping in Korinbo is so so only with the department stores/shops catering to a younger crowd (say below age 35?).

We stayed at several Toyoko Inns during our vacation in Japan, and all were good value in convenient locations, but this one was a step above the others, perhaps to better fit in with retail neighbors like Louis Vuitton and Armani. The rooms are the standard Toyoko Inn with capsule bathrooms, but the lobby is very spacious, and they are well prepared to help tourists enjoy their visit with visitor brochures in English laid out.

We came by bus and left by train, but did not realize until now, reading other reviews, that there was a free shuttle (took a taxi). However, the attraction we came to Kanazawa to visit, the Kenruoken Garden, is a pleasant 10 minute walk from the hotel (as is a fantastic pedestrian shopping street and excellent restaurants.

Room Tip: The building is L - shaped and rooms on the west side face rooms in the opposite wing. A room on the...

In our expereince, Toyoko Inns are all really good. They are very good accomodation for the money, have a good service, and a great free breakfast. The Toyoko Inn Kanazawa Kenrokuen Korinbo has all of that plus an excellent location. Other than its distance from the train station, which is made up for by a shuttle, public buses, and easy taxis, this hotel is likely the best value one you can find in this location, close to Kenrokuen, Kanazawa Castle, the Samurai District, so much good food and shopping. I highly recommend!

This was our second Toyoko Inn experience and we found this to be quiet spacious for a business hotel. The location is fantastic - within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, the market, Kenrouken Garden $ Kanazawa Castle, the Samurai district and the 21st Century Art Museum. It's a bit far from the station, but they offer a free shuttle bus - when you exit the station, turn to the right. The shuttle is BEHIND all the construction going on (we had a bit of trouble locating it!). Otherwise it's about a 1000 yen cab from the hotel.

The Japanese-style breakfast was HUGE and plentiful, rooms were clean and actually a decent size, and the reception was very helpful - they even retrieved a prescription for me that I left when we checked out (they were very patient with us non-native speakers!). This is a great, very reasonably priced hotel for the location.

Arrived during Golden Week and the placed was packed.

Pro's. Location, close to the main tourist attractions - Gardens, Castle, Market and Samurai District. Many eating options nearby (Frangipani Restaurant - Yum!) in the Department store (Daiwa) across the road or in the nearby lane-ways. Staff were helpful. The free station shuttle was a really nice touch. The breakfast on offer catered largely for Japanese tastes (not surprisingly!) but a nice offering at this price point. A free tea dispensing machine in the foyer was great.

Con's - The room was small and the bed was hard - even by Japanese standards. Check in was pretty late, at 4pm but they did offer secure luggage storage. Internet was on offer but pretty slow.

Summary - Good hotel in handy location offered with a cheap room rate.

Title: One of the Better Toyoko Inns
ID#: 159094416

I stayed in a fair bit of Toyoko Inns across Japan. Toyoko Inn Kanazawa Kenrokuen Korinbo offers the best breakfast so far. I stayed for 3 nights and the main changed daily. First day it was scrambled egg, second day it was meat balls and third day, burger patties. Aside from that there were 2-3 types of rice (changing amongst white rice, fried rice, rice ball, porridge, ochazuke..), 3-4 types of appetisers like pickles etc, miso soup, 1-2 types of bread, coffee, and English and Green Tea. Actually there is a coffee/tea dispenser machine that offers these drinks 24/7.

There is also a shuttle service between the station and hotel both ways. From station in the afternoon and from hotel in the morning. Here is the link to the shuttle detail such as schedule & location at the station.
www.toyoko-inn.com/hotel/00171/bus.html

Location is excellent! Facing downtown yet five minutes walk behind the hotel you will find quaint traditional streets and canal. Also, it is so close to Kenrokuen etc. Basically it is right in the middle between the Northern and Southern attractions. So many buses passing and the bus stops just steps away. The hotel sells the One Day Pass which is applicable for all JR buses and Loop Bus but not the Flat Buses. Not sure about the Light-Up Bus which runs saturday evenings...

Many eateries and if you are too tired you can go across to Daiwa to buy the ready made food before they close at 7pm where almost everything would be on sale!
