Chisun Hotel Hiroshima was definitely one of the funniest hotels I've ever stayed. All experience was positive, I can assure you that.
Hotel itself is located in a small, tiny building between two other, much bigger buildings. It's actually quite easy to miss that place.
First, this is not a luxury hotel or resort. You have to remember, that this is budget hotel, so don't expect too much.
I have made reservation trough Ebookers website, as that was much better value than direct with hotel.
We arrived to hotel early in the morning, so staff provided secured space for our luggage, which we collected when checking-in. This was really funny, because we had semi-double room reserved. Guy at reception tried to explain us very politely that this was with "one bed, not too beds" (as we're gay couple we knew exactly, what does "1 bed in the room" mean). He even showed us these differences of room type sample photos. At the end we got room we actually booked and wanted. That was bit funny, but no offensive at all.
Room was on the 5th floor (there is small lift, max for 2 guests). It was really small space. For two European guys it was not enough free space. All right if you need to spend night there, that's it. If you want to stay longer, hm... Maybe think abour some alternatives.
I have to mention, that air-condition was a bit noisy and we couldn't control the temperature so much, so we opened window. And that was so noisy overnight. If you need quiet place, again Chisun Hotel Hiroshima may not be the best place for you.
I have to say, that room was clean and equipped with new furniture. There was small TV, phone, internet access (I don't remember, but there was some acceptable fee for that), coffee/tea maker, air condition, radio/alarm clock and ironing board (they should leave that space for baggage or something).
Bathroom was "capsule type", no surprise - quite small. Again, everything was fresh and clean. Selection of three "liquids" - hand/bath gel, shampoo and moisturizer. Basic, but good enough quality.
We didn't have breakfast included and decided that we'll do that "in town". Just nearby there are some these 'breakfast roll & coffee" shops, so it's easy to manage that. Nearby there is as well (turn left when leaving hotel, then on the 1st corner to the left) great Ramen noodle shop. For few yen you could have great, authentic dinner or lunch. I loved that. We've been there 3 times in two days, lol.
Chisun Hotel is as well quite convienient for Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, approx. 20-25 min. walking or short drive by tram, stop is just outside the hotel. It was again few stops from Main Railway Station or short, inexpensive taxi drive.
Overall, this was positive experience, mainly because of the cleanliness and quality of hotel/furniture. Staff helpful and really polite. If you're looking for budget hotel stay - that's absolutely fine. If luxury and high level of comfort - choose something different.
