Park Side Hotel
Ranked #15 of 121 Hotels / Ryokan in Hiroshima
Reviewed January 1, 2014

My partner and I stayed here for four nights whilst visiting friends in Hiroshima. The location is great, very easy to find and convenient to Hondori shopping area and the streetcar at Fukuromachi and Hondori. The room was modern, clean and comfortable and the bed was comfy too. As Japanese hotels go I was quite impressed for the price. We had breakfast included and the only let down was that the 'western style breakfast buffet' consisted of only toast and jam. It would be great to have some pastries or fresh fruit as well, but I realise that those breakfast foods might not be as popular. I would most likely stay here again in future if I can get another good rate. The service was polite and efficient as I have come to expect in Japanese hotels.

Room Tip: The only pointer is that the lift is slow so lower floors would be quicker to get to.

I stayed two nights with my daughter in a double room. The location was excellent. It's very close (3 minutes' walk) to the Peace Memorial Park, where the A-bomb Dome is, as the name of the hotel indicates. You can visit another UNESCO World Heritage, Miyajima, by the tram. There are a lot of good restaurants nearby. There is a very good seafood restaurant (Sakana Ichiba さかな市場) is in the hotel itself. You can enjoy very fresh and delicious seafood for reasonable price. The hotel staff were all very nice and helpful as other reviewers say. They offered a lot of good information about transportations, restaurants, etc., and tried best to find an answer to any question I asked.
It would be perfect if the bed had been bigger or they had more "twin" rooms instead of "double".

This hotel is literally around the corner of the Hiroshima Park and Peace Museum, the most important tourist spots in the city. Not only that, there are tons of restaurants and shops on the streets around so there are a lot of fun things to do around. The hotel is small but ok for the price since it’s not that expensive. Rooms are also small but comfy and useful. The staff speak good English and are pretty helpful if you don’t know your way around. This is a good spot to stay in Hiroshima.

Stayed at this hotel only one night and wish it was 20. By far the best hotel we stayed at in Japan. Reception staff were very helpful, room was huge compared to other hotels we stayed at in Japan, everything clean and tidy and the bed comfortable. Great location close to shops, places to eat and Peace Park. Overall very happy with our stay.

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a good time. The hotel itself isn't very special, the room was clean and is (for Japanese sizes) quite alright, but the bathroom is tiny. In earlier reviews we had seen it described as an airplane toilet, well it's a bit bigger than that, but don't expect to much. The location is great; it's in a quiet street just a 5 minute walk away from the Peace Park (which is a must to visit!) and another 5 minutes walk away from the tram stop and a large shopping area.
The biggest plus for us was the free laundry room. They have 2 washing machines & 2 dryers which we used quite a lot as we were already on holiday for 2 weeks.
Regarding location & price we would definitely recommend this hotel. If you are looking for something new, fresh & fancy, you'll have to search for another hotel, but we would stay here again when we visit Hiroshima!
How to get there? Exit tram 1 at the Hondori stop (tram departs just outside Hiroshima Station).When you get off, walk towards the pedestrian crossing bridge (not to miss). Turn right just 1 block before that bridge and you will already see the park ahead of you. Then turn left after 2 blocks, when you are on the crossing of an Italian bar and a kids playground and you'll find the hotel on your left hand side just 50 meters further.
