“Friends' Referral suited us.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

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.

Room Tip: See if you can get a bigger room!

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.
