We have stayed in many other hotels in Japan andHotel Park Side Hiroshima Peace Park was really a dissaster.
The room was uncomfortably dark but the biggest problem was the smell in the room. Not only smoke but also fried oil smell from downstairs restaurants. (we stayed at the highest floor already)
When we opened the window it didn't help. Airconditioning didn't help either, because the smell came out of the airco as well! Curtains had a yellowish colour ,smoke?
We went to reception and asked if they have gave us a smoking room instead. But they told us it was a non-smoking room and gave us some purifier spray........
We were quite angry because we really felt unwell in the room, couldn't breath properly anymore. We are really not making a drama it was really how we experienced.
Staff showed us some more rooms, and all had the same smell! We recognized that he only showed us the corner rooms. So we asked him to show us another room but he didn't. We were very frustrated because we didn't had the idea he understood us. Later he showed us a room which was facing another building, still the same smell but a little bit better.
Location is indeed perfect, 2 min walk to Peace Memoral Park, and close to main down town Hondori.
Anyway, we won't stay here again! We checked for another hotel but mainly fully booked. So we just slept a few hours every day, because we didn't want to spend much time in the room.
