The hotel is not luxurious but it is comfortable enough. The staff is very friendly but the great majority does not speak English. Rooms are small as in most japanese hotels but i foind it clean and quiet. Breakfast has a great variety in a buffet style but does not offer gluten free bread and, even if you bring your gf bread as I did, it does not have butter, only margarine. Gluten intolerant people will be able to eat rice, sweet potatoes and some salad. There are no fresh fruits. It’s very hard in general to communicate that you are gluten free in Kumamoto as they do not seem to have a word for gluten.
Finally, the hotel is very close to the castle, and despite being closed, it’s worth to walk on its surroundings. Also, there are many restaurants and shops at a 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel.More
