We have recently stayed for 6 nights at Kagoshima Chuo-eki Nishi-guchi and found it lived up to the normal high Toyoko Inn standards, with one small annoyance.
Firstly the hotel is situated about 1 - 2 minutes walk from the west exit of the Kagoshima Chuo station. Many eateries abound in the station and surrounding areas so getting good reasonably priced meals is not a problem.
Booking in to the hotel was, as always, fast and efficient, without any delay. Whilst we did not encounter anyone who spoke English we have never really found it a major issue in Japan, provided you go with the flow!
As a member of Toyoko Inn we enjoy a discount on the advertised rate and because we stayed for more than 2 nights we were able to enjoy a further 300 yen discount, for several days, on the eco plan.
**If you are not a member you can join when checking in and still benefit**
As in all of these hotels a Japanese breakfast is included which consists of a range of foods including flavoured rice, miso soup, bread, pickle, noodles, tea and coffee, to mention but a few. Coffee is available in the lobby during the evening.
All hotels have very efficient washing machines and clothes dryers for which you pay a fee but ironing equipment is supplied.
The room was compact but well appointed with all the Toyoko Inn accessories you find in all their hotels. Beds are firm but very very comfortable and of generous size. Rooms are very clean.
WiFi is available free in rooms and computers and printer are available free of charge in the lobby.
Our room was at the rear of the hotel and on the 2nd floor, immediately overlooking several railway tracks. During the time we were there I heard 1 train.
During our stay one annoyance was the fact that for the first 2 days the hotel was full. Given the fact that we were on the 2nd floor, and only had lift access, we had long delays waiting for a lift, particularly in the morning during the breakfast period.
Notwithstanding this Toyoko Inns are great value and are normally in excellent locations for those who use railways.
