“Good location, friendly staffs, large room.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The location is great, about 5 mins walk from JR station, bus and tram. Easy to go around. The staffs are quite friendly. The room is very clean and large (especially compared with Japanese standard). Didn't try the meals there. One tip.. If you don't smoke.. Really try to get a non-smoking room. I've stayed in a smoking room there (the non-smoking ones are all fully booked) and can't really get the smells out.

Hotel New Hiroden is well located, just 5 minutes walk from Hiroshima station. There are a number of good cafes and a great bakery near the station, as well as lots of places for cheap and delicious dinners (okonomiyake!).

The room was large by Japanese standards, though the decor was a little tired. There is free wifi in the lobby, which few Japanese hotels seem to have. Wired Internet is free in the rooms. The hotel bar also has a daily happy hour, which pleased our fellow group travellers.

The only real problem was that we couldn't work out how to make the aircon work, and so the room was quite hot, and after showering, really humid as well! I suspect that the aircon has been limited by thermostat or something similar to prevent people setting it very low. It would have been fine if we could open the window, but they seem to be locked closed.

All in all, New Hiroden is fine. It's cheap and well located and the staff on the front desk are friendly. It seems like standard Japanese business hotel fare.

This hotel is ideally situated for visitors as it is a very easy 5 minute walk from the train station, There is also plenty of good restaurants and attractions nearby. The hotel itself was clean, the rooms were on the larger size for Japan and were very comfy. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and accomodating, would stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We stayed at the New Hiroden as part of a group while visiting Hiroshima. The hotel was comfortable, but you can see that the decor is dated. Everything was very clean, and that is the most important thing to me. The room was very small, but that is normal for Japan. My husband and I chuckled a bit when we came into the room and realized we each had our own twin bed! We were unofficially celebrating our 12th anniversary, so that was cute!
The restaurant was ok...nothing to get too excited about, but it served us a decent meal when we were just too tired to go out and find dinner. They use a local salt, check that out...it was very good! The breakfast buffet was not good at all for westerners. They had scrambled eggs, but they were unseasoned and undercooked. I decided to grab a coffee and eat elsewhere both mornings we were there.
I didn't notice the noise from the street or from the trains and I am a light sleeper. I was on the 12th floor, so maybe that helped.
Overall, I enjoyed my visit there and would stay there again.

This hotel is well located, an easy two minute walk to the main station. En route to the station is a lovely bakery (self service) which is a great place to grab breakfast and a coffee. The staff in the hotel were helpful and there is free wifi in the lobby, though not the rooms (but you can connect to the internet for free in your room if you have a laptop/cable). There are also plenty of vending machines in the hotel for drinks.

They had run out of twin rooms when we arrived, so they gave my friend and I a single room each for no extra charge. The single rooms were fine - clean and comfortable and had a kettle as well. They were fairly small but that's the same for all Japanese hotel rooms. The hotel was quiet and I got a great night of sleep.

Hiroshima is fairly walkable as a city, but took the tram a few times (you pay when you get off - there are change machines on the tram if you don't have the right money) and there is a major tram depot outside the main station, so this is also very close to the hotel.

Overall, nothing remarkable but a decent enough place to stay as a base for sightseeing/a visit to Hiroshima.

This hotel is just 2 blocks from the train station, where several streetcar lines that lead to the main city interesting sites have their first stop. This very convenient location has a consequence, though: the building is close to the train tracks, so although the acoustic isolation is good we did hear the trains. This was not at all a problem for us because our room was on a high floor and the noise was really faint, but maybe it's worse in lower floors.

As always in Japan (in my experience), staff was courteous and efficient, and all premises were perfectly clean. There's free wifi available in the reception lobby. Our room was of the standard Japanese size (i.e. not very large), but floor space was made even more scarce by the size of the unnecessarily large beds, and looked oldish, specially the bathroom that would welcome a renovation.

Breakfast was good, with a reasonable choice of Japanese an Western food.

I can't comment on value because we stayed as part of a package trip.
