This budget hotel had been booked by our tour company so we weren't sure what to expect. We travelled around Japan for just over two weeks and stayed in Toyoko Inns in Matsumoto, Hiroshima, Kyoto and Yokohama (but they're everywhere) and found them convenient, clean, friendly places to stay.
The hotel is located on Haiwa Odori or Peace Avenue which leads directly (a brisk ten-minute walk) to the Peace Park in the centre of the city and a short five-minute taxi ride from the railway station.
The hotel is just a short walk from an area of restaurants and bars so you don't have far to go to find great places to eat and drink (or a long walk back afterwards).
Reception is simliar to most Toyoko Inns - plain and has a few tables and chairs where breakfast is served in the morning. Staff were friendly and helpfully spoke English. Check in time of 3.00pm is strictly enforced so you won't get into your room until then.
Rooms are clean and well maintained and have 'module' bathrooms with deep baths, shower and 'electronic' toilets with bidet-type spray washes. Breakfast is Japanese style with rice triangles, miso soup, seaweed and pickled vegetables, rice, noodles and to drink green tea and coffee.
The hotel has free wi-fi in the reception area, where there are also drinks machines (water, beer, cans of coffee, juices etc.). Helpfully, if you're travelling around a lot, there are laundry facilities too - coin-operated washers and driers and powder for sale.
Don't expect fancy and all the extras of a luxury hotel but you won't beat the value for what you get.
