“Very good price performance”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

Ranking in the class of business hotels this hotel provides excellent service at a very reasonable price. Despite the lack of English skills, all off the employees where very friendly and polite. The hotel was recommended to me because the "Emperor usually stays here". Akita is a very countryside city and without doubt this hotel can be classified as one of the best hotels in the city. The room is very clean offering also offering a widescreen flat TV. Wireless Internet access is complimentary. Very convenient also for families traveling is a Lawson convenience store located just inside the hotel. Buy your drinks in this store and put them into the empty fridge in your room. There are only two things which are the reason for my 90% evaluation. The hotel is quite remote from the station and continental breakfast is a joke. However I suppose 99% off their customers staying here go with it Japanese-style breakfast which looked very nice. Highly recommendable!

Stayed here for work. It was great location as there several restaurants and pubs within walking distance. The castle on the hill is closely located and worked out awesome for some post work jogs.

Rooms were decent size for asian standards, very clean, and very quiet.

Room Tip: Close your curtains unless you want to get up early. The sun rose at about 4:30am and i forgot to c...

We stayed at the Akita Castle Hotel for about a week in December. The hotel is located right on the main street from Akita JR Station. I would say it's probably a good ~10 minute walk from the station. Not the most convenient if you have heavy bags but if you take a cab it's only a few minutes away. The hotel is elegant, the staff is beyond friendly and helpful. We had a double bed room and it was very spacious! Much bigger than most Japanese hotels we have stayed at. We had breakfast included in the stay - typical Japanese breakfast but they did have some western options like eggs, bacon and bread.

There is a little market right across the street where you can find lots of different yummy Japanese food as well as an international store called ""Grocer's." The Akita Art Museum is also located across the street, as well as the Senshu Park where you can see remains of Akita castle. Overall, everything is walking distance! Attached to the hotel is a Lawson, a convenience store, where you can purchase food and drinks. Very convenient!

Akita is a fairly quiet regional centre on the isolated Japan Sea coast, and there's not a whole lot of interest in the city itself, but the Akita Castle Hotel is a very good choice.

The reception area is much more elegant than you would expect from a regional business hotel, and the rooms are fairly spacious and very well-maintained. The staff are professional and polite.

The only downside is it's a reasonable walk from JR Akita Station if you're carrying heavy luggage. It is right next to a stop on the airport shuttle bus run though.
