Richmond Hotel Kagoshima Kinseicho
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 23, 2014

First Japanese hotel I had ever stayed in. Very correct respectful staff, hard to get used to people bowing to me amd bowing in return.
I am a peasant from the North of England and had to learn to grapple with all the technology of the hotel room. The card key, the multiple mode toilet, of the 5 function light which had a moonlight mode which I don't know how I have ever lived without. The room was large and good old-fashioned pyjamas were provided. From the window you can see the black volcanic ash which erupts from Sakurajima on the flat roofs, the active volcano dominates Kagoshima, a real bonus would have been a view of the volcano itself.
There is a Lawson's convenience store south of the hotel towards the port from where I walked back eating a packet of crisps until I remembered it isn't done in Japan to eat on the streets which is a bad habit I was prepared to forgo for the sake of public decency. There is a fantastic bakery to the west on the way to the station where you can hear the singsong of the bakery girls as they promote their wares..
A lady lives in a plastic bag on the pavement outside this hotel, I wonder if they let her in to go to the loo?

Room Tip: Ask for a room on an upper floor with of view of Sakurajima Volcano which erupts at frequent interva...

During my first to Kagoshima I was fortunate enough to stay at the Richmond Hotel Kagoshima for 5 days. The room was very spacious and comfortable. As a norm Japanese hotel rooms tend to be on the smaller side, not so at the Richmond hotels.

As it was only my second time to visit Kyushu, the hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly in providing with much need advice and assistance for my travel and sightseeing plans. The hotel has a great location which travelling around the city very easy and perfect for enjoying the lovely delights of Kagoshima city.

It also has great showers and when requested I got a room with a wonderful view of Sakurajima.

A wonderful experience overall.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Sakurajima and if you new to the city, the staff have some excellent a...

This hotel is within walking distance to the shopping, nightlife and restaurants of downtown Kagoshima as well as the ferry departing for Sakurajima. We were very pleased with the convenient location and the well-designed (but small and rather stuffy) double room which served as our base for two days. We stayed at another Richmond previously and both hotels shared the same look and feel - good layout, efficient, clean, excellent wi-fi in room, rather clinical. We requested in advance for a room with Sakurajima view and the hotel obliged! Parking was an additional 1000yen per day but we felt it was reasonable given its city centre location where space is a premium.

Just one concern: There was no safe in the room, so we had to place our valuables and passports at the reception. The desk clerk merely wrote our details on an envelope and took our stuff, telling us that he would put everything in the hotel safe. Although this is Japan, we felt that the hotel should adopt a less nonchalant approach to the valuables of its guests ... or provide in-room safes.

When we were checking out, the hotel took a instant photo of us, mounted it on a small card with good wishes and a photo of Sakurajima, and gave it to us as a souvenir. We thought this was a very nice touch and ended our stay on a very pleasant note.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with volcano view!

Easy access to everywhere from this hotel. We arrived from Kagoshima (not Kagoshima Chuo) station about 15 minutes easy walk along the tramline. The hotel is right on the edge of the city shopping area without being right in the middle of it. This hotel is not to be confused with the other Richmond hotel with is in the 'busy' arcade! The hotel is also about a 15 minute stroll to the ferry terminal for Sakura jima.

Breakfast is JPY1000 and consists of a choice of 1 of 4 'main' dishes plus the buffet and drinks which is adequate.

The room was quite spacious but far too 'warm'. The heat could not be turned down. This was really the only negative about the hotel.

Check in and check out is completed via a kiosk in the lobby, with an English option! Extremely easy to manoeuvre.

A good stay!

We chose this hotel firstly because it was near the ferry terminals (10mins walk to the terminals to Sakurajima/Yakushima). It was also near the city tram stop. Price paid was 9500yen for a twin room. The rooms were really huge with humidifiers. On the downside, the room was too warm that we had to open the windows, there seemed no other way to change the aircon settings.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Mt Sakurajima.

Best thing about this hotel is that it is located near the ferry port and right on the edge of the downtown action. Stayed 3 nights - initially had room with view of a solid wall of adjacent building. On request were moved up to view of top of building and glimpse of ferry port. Facilities adequate and overall environment pleasant. English was limited but didn't matter as we were able to navigate Kagoshima using a mix of taxis trams and buses. The overall visit was great

Richmond Hotel is exactly what one would expect: the rooms are clean, the stuff is very professional, the facilities in excellent state.
The one big disappointment was the luck of free parking. We paid 1000¥/night to park our car in a car-park that was part of the building!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Sakurajima and get up in the morning to see the sunrise!
