“Good location for museum, restaurants”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Staye two nights as part of a group tour. The rooms are basically all the same at Toyoko Inns-small, clean and they have everything that you could need. This one even had mini van service to and from the train station.

Main issue was poor quality of internet service in rooms, and lack of staff at the desk to answer phone.Little English is spoken, and it took over 5 tries for someone to reach me by phone.

Good location for the Peace Park, and tons of restaurants in area.

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.

Room Tip: The higher the better so you get the good views across the city.

Stayed in this hotel for the second time: first time was in 2006. The hotel was not changed: quick checkin service, rooms were of decent size, twin beds were comfortable. Bathroom amenities were plenty. Mayor plus: free breakfast (they have added Western style breakfast to the Japanese style since last time. It is walking distance to the shopping streets and Peace Memorial Park.

Room Tip: Book directly on the Toyoko inn website for best rates, no prepaying required

I've stayed at a few Toyoko Inns and they are all great. They've all got a fairly good location, they come with breakfast and their staff have a reasonable command of english (enough for simple communication anyway).

The rooms are small of course but its big enough for me and there's enough space that you don't feel claustrophobic. The bed is comfortable, there's a tv, airconditioning and a small fridge. The bathroom is a bit small for my liking but well you can't have everything, its decent enough for the budget price that you're paying. Also the whole hotel and the rooms are very clean.

As for the location of Toyoko Heiwa Odori, it was okay. It was convenient but not very, very convenient, its a fair bit to walk to either the memorial or to the shopping area. Maybe 15 mins? I didn't time it but I remember walking quite a bit. And you know what? This is probably a short walk for some people anyway.

Also, they've got a shuttle car that drives you to Hiroshima Train Station every half an hour (I can't remember the intervals but quite frequent). I found this very convenient because the station really is quite far and when we left Hiroshima it was raining heavily, so thank goodness for this shuttle car! Also I guess I should mention that getting from Hiroshima station to the hotel can be complicated if visiting Hiroshima for the first time (unless you take a taxi of course). You've got to take a street car to a stop (can't remember which) and figure out how to pay the street car because you don't pay till you get off! Then you gotta walk another 15 mins to the hotel.

Anyway I'm not complaining, just stating what I went through. Great hotel, I loved it.

Toyoko Inn is basically the Holiday Inn or what have you of Japan, it tries to offer business and budget travelers with uniform, clean locations. The hotels are generally located within a 10 minute walk of a station or major attraction and they all have exactly the same styling and architecture. They are not remarkable hotels, but for the price and location, Toyoko Inn is pretty hard to beat all over Japan. The Hiroshima one in particular is nice since it's in walking distance to the Peace Park, Hondori (main shopping area), and Hiroshima's redlight/entertainment district.

The rooms are tiny, but that is typical Japan; however, they are newly furnished and very clean. Ladies get a special bath set with nail polish remover, a face mask, and some other amenities. If you reserve off their website, you also get your choice of a website only gift which is honestly usually pairs of poor quality socks, notepads, or pens. The room rate also includes breakfast (which I have never eaten and cannot comment on) of miso soup and riceballs.

The staff is friendly and will do their best to help you. There is also free internet on their lobby computers and broadband in your room if your brought your laptop.

  • Liked — Location and knowing exactly what I'm going to get
  • Disliked — Lack of bilingual button on television

A well located hotel on the road leading down to the peace park.
Small (as virtually all Japaese Hotels) but very clean and comfortable. Room has desk, coffee table and 2 chairs.
Also get the usual yakuta and slippers

Free breakfast included which was the usual, rice, miso soup and seaweed
Also get free 'ladies set' various smellies, cotton buds etc and an extra free gift. I chose a nice little reading torch. Other options included a pair of sock or what looked like a towl.

Free internet access in the lobby, although its difficult getting round the Japanese computer keyboard. For those with their own laptop, there is also free internet access in every room

7 minutes walk from Ebisu tram station
The hotel also runs a free taxi service to the trainstation.
I only found this out leaving the hotel, but I assume that if you contact the hotel from the station they can pick you up.
