This hotel is a 10 min walk from JR Aomori station, but it is a bit difficult to find as the entrance is in a back street, and the hotel reception is on the second floor. Staff are friendly and professional, although English is not widely spoken.

The hotel is also an onsen, and they provide in room yukata for attending the spa. We did not realise before arriving that the onsen is actually open to the public so it is not just for hotel guests. This may be an issue if you are not comfortable with naked bathing. However, this is a typical Japanese experience that should not be missed. Tattoos are not allowed in the onsen.

Breakfast is included but we didn't use it as the Aomori fish market is almost next to the hotel, which has amazing fresh seafood, especially crab, ikura and uni.

Room was a decent size for a Japanese hotel. Fittings and finish are standard Japanese - self contained wet room with shower and bath tub, twin beds and also tv, coffee making facilities, and free wifi.

We had a good stay here and can recommend to anyone wanting a centrally located hotel in Aomori.

Room tip: Ask for room away from elevator as they are quieter

This looks like a newer hotel about 6-9 minute walk from the station. Be sure you know where you are going because it is not on a major street. We paid more than what a standard business hotel room would be in Japan. However, that included the use of the onsen spa (traditional Japanese hot springs bath), which is large and very nice, as well as a buffet breakfast, consisting of mostly Japanese and some Western foods. Extensive choices.

The room itself was bigger than the standard 2-bed small rooms in Japanese business type hotels, and the bathroom and tub were bigger as well. The high-tech washing toilet had a remote control for ease of use. Other features: free wi-fi, pajamas, water heater, tea, big screen TV, well lighted, room to store luggage, an adequate closet, a sofa, and a small desk. Very functional and new looking. Staff were polite, helpful and friendly, even though English might be somewhat limited. We had no communication problems. Will definitely consider staying here again when in Aomori.

Room tip: We had a corner room on the 6th floor. View was of buildings.

The hotel was a bit tricky to find. There seemed to be several entrances and reception was on level 2. It was an easy walk from the station. Check in was simple.
The room was small by my standards but normal for Japan. It has everything you need. Breakfast was in the Japanese style. Three stars is probably a bit harsh.

An easy walk from Aomori Station, which itself is about a 10 minute JR train ride from Shin Osaka Station. That shuttle JR train (which also goes beyond the Shinkansen Station to other towns) runs about two times per hour between the two.

The hotel is in a neighborhood of small shops a few blocks from the central business district. A few minutes beyond that is the waterfront with interesting, pretty places to walk.

The front desk is on the second floor, and the rooms above that. As you enter the hotel there is a restaurant to the left, the kind where you buy a ticket from the machine then give it to the staff, who then prepare the food. Prices are standard, the food like you would typically find in such a place.

That restaurant is also the free breakfast venue, with an extensive buffet of mostly Japanese foods but also several kinds of juice and fresh pastries. Leave your shoes at the entrance and walk around in stockings or barefoot. Reaching the restaurant from the front desk involves finding your way through a labyrinth of halls, passing the baths, descending stairs, etc. Signs are there, but mostly Japanese. Memorize the pathway, so you can find your way back to your room. Diagrams of the route are provided.

Rooms come in several sizes. Some are larger than expected, and are actually spacious by Japanese standards. Of course they cost more.

Staff is helpful, but with limited English. Most of the signage and instructions are in Japanese so a basic ability would be helpful.

Strong wifi.

Rooms were quiet, mostly facing lower nearby buildings. Higher rooms provide more view of the city.

We were completely satisfied and would stay there again.

Room tip: Views from all sides are similar.

Aomori was a 1-night stop in my Hokkaido and Tokyo trip. When I searched for hotels in this city, I was attracted by the Center Hotel due to an onsen in it. It is mainly visited by the locals, so you can really see how Japanese people enjoy onsen. Free breakfast is provided every day and there is only a 10-minute walk from Aomori Station. Hotel staff have a basic command of English, so you don't need to worry about the communication problem.

As for the rooms, they are relatively big when you compare them with those in big cities like Tokyo and Osaka. Basic amenities can be found. However, no free wifi and English TV channels are provided, so you need to find your own ways to entertain yourself if you stay here.
