We booked this hotel on the advise of friends who had visited Japan a few months before we travelled. We exited at the Kamiya-cho-mishi station at the Central gates. You are on a main street but only need to walk down two blocks - near Brook Bros, then right 2 streets, then left and the Hotel is there. It is very close to the Peace Memorial Park and Atomic Bomb Dome. Keep that in mind and you shouldn't stray too far. We did get a little lost but maybe our fault for not taking down directions beforehand. But a helpful gentleman took us right to it!
The hotel suited us. Location was great. Hotel LOOKS very modern from the outside. We found the "lobby" uninviting and a little industrial looking. However the staff were very helpful with any questions we had although they struggled with English! Our rooms were exceptionally tiny! We had a bed , a chair, and a low counter under the windows plus the fridge and a small open hanging "closet". Bathroom, as others mentioned was also small but adequate.
We didn't use the restaurant. but we did walk to the main street where there were plenty of coffee
shops for a pastry or sandwich. We didn't walk around the malls and stores but the undercover "streets" and stores looked fascinating. We spent hours at the beautiful Peace Park - the museum is very sobering. We went twice to the Café Ponte at the beginning of the bridge for dinner! Delicious food - Italian style. I went to Miyajima Island to see the famous Tori Gate. I took the ferry there and back and I wouldn't recommend going any other way. So simple - especially if catching trams and trains alone is a little intimidating! The Miyajima ferry is approached from the entrance to the bridge. Go down the stairs just beside the Café Ponte and voila! The hotel is in a great location for this trip as well.
