Stayed here 3 nights in Feb 2011. If you are arriving by train, you have to take the streetcar to the centre of town. If arriving by air, you can take an airport bus to the main bus station which is only a block from the hotel. The bus station is adjacent to an underground shopping mall, which has a number of interesting small restaurants as well. Easy to walk to the castle which is generally considered the highlight of a visit to Kumamoto.

The onsen on the top floor was very relaxing with both an indoor and outdoor bath. and is very relaxing after a day of sightseeing. Also enjoyed the fact you can get free ramen bowl in the evening. There must have been a big event one night, as the place was packed with very well lubricated salary men (and ladies) all enjoying the ramen noodles. Staff were friendly and helpful in helping me fill in the Takuhaibin forms for luggage forwarding.

We only stayed one night in this hotel on our round tour in Kyushu. We booked two-interconnected rooms at very affordable early-bird price with breakfast. Comparing with the Dormy Inn in Fukuoka, the rooms, breakfast and onsen will be less attractive but considering the prices, which is almost half, it is then very worthwhile. There is only a hot spring spa for the male and female guests to use at different hours, free internet in rooms, coin laundry and a car park which you need to pay JPY 5,000 per nite. Very conveniently located and accessible by tram or bus. There is one staff actually spoke good English and showed us how to get on the tram to go to the city area. Helpful and always willing to help and again with an onsen in a city, this hotel is good place to stay in town. When we checked in, we paid the full hotel rates already and each guest room was given a code number to access. Thus it saved us time as we don't have to queue up and return the key when check out.

Hotel was clean and although close to bus station was quiet. Good base to see the city from. Easy to use the trams to get to and from the train station.
Within walking distance to main attraction of castle. Did not eat in hotel as breakfast not included in our rate. Hotel was busy so did not use the onsen.
Hotel staff English was poor but enough to check in etc.
Key was bit of a hassle. There is only one key for the room and it is used in the room to turn on the appliances etc. Had to give it back everytime you leave the hotel and then ask for it again. This is the same though for the few Dormy properties we stayed in.

Comfortable, if small (Japanese sized) room.
Fabulous onsen (included), rigorous shiatsu!(extra).
Free washing machines (dryer charged)
Free noodles at night - for the late working businessman, banquet breakfast (charged extra).
Great location with a view to the castle if you get lucky.
Dormy are a good, slightly upmarket modern styled chain.
Highly recommended.

The only complaint I have is the distance of the hotel from JR Kumamoto. Other than that, everything else was perfect and I was pleasantly surprised when I found that the hotel had specially prepared a small pillow, slippers and towels for my toddler when I entered the room. (It was the only hotel that paid attention to this small detail during my recent trip to Japan)

The taxi trip from JR Kumamoto to the hotel cost around 800 Yen but the trip back was complimentary (courtesy of the hotel). Rooms were clean and although not too big, was comfortable enough for our family of three. It was within walking distance to the castle and the heart of the city so supermarkets, restaurants were convenient to reach...

All in all, not a bad choice for 10,000 Yen a night....

The Dormy Inn was excellent value for money and the rooftop onsen was sensational! We have stayed at another Dormy Inn so really looked forward to our stay in Kumamoto. The onsen was even better than the last Dormy Inn and I really loved it! The room was clean, well laid out and had everything you needed. If you can get the breakfast cheap with your room booking, that is worth it too.
