Toyoko Inn is a functional no-frills hotel where most of what you need is in your room. It feels cramped but it's a comfortable place. My room had a screened window, but there's no view to speak about. It has a ref, a TV, even a wall clock. It even has a small round table when you want to dine in. The restaurant at the ground floor serves buffet breakfast with a limited but serviceable food. There's a row of restaurants just outside and a convenience store nearby. It's a good place to base yourself for travels i this cold and seemingly very remote northern city.

Having a Toyoko right at the station is wonderful! In Tokyo, most of the Toyoko's are farther away from the main train stations. But as you get out into rural areas, many of the Toyoko's are right at the station or within minutes walking. Due to our visit to Hirosaki during their annual cherry blossom festival, we were not able to get twin rooms as couples. So our everyone in our group reserved single rooms. We were pleasantly surprised that the rooms we got were actually "double" rooms, if you understand the usual Toyoko room descriptions. There was a double bed, ample space (for a Toyoko) but clearly for only one person. there was only one room slipper and rack, towels for only one, et al. In addition to what other reviewers have written, I would add that in addition to the benefit of being a Toyoko Inn member and getting a room discount, if you choose the Eco Stay, which means there is no daily room cleaning, you get a discount and still get new towels each day. All in all, a great deal! Most highly recommended. There is a comfort in having all Toyoko's pretty much looking the same.

Right outside of the station, this hotel was a great base for us to spend two days exploring Hirosaki and Goshogawara. The staff were friendly and even stopped me one day to refund an accidental overcharge (of only 50 yen!) the night before.
We got the Double room which had a enough space to store your luggage and still be able to just move around the room.
Breakfasts at Tokyoko Inns are always a bit stressful - not a big enough room to cover how many people want to eat, so you have to get cosy with your fellow hotel guests from time to time. Food was good though, with the standard range of Japanese breakfast foods.

The room was clean, quiet, bright, functional and small, as expected. Toothbrush was supplied in the room, with more amenities available in the lobby. There was no space to put luggage – it was suggested to store it under the bed. Well, OK, but slightly inconvenient. We paid around 8,000 yen for a 2-bed room, including breakfast. But depending on when you go, better deals can be found. If you join their loyalty program, there is small discount available. I think it was 5%.

Breakfast was a combination of Japanese and Western foods – simple but adequate.

The location is steps from Hirosaki Station, very convenient if you have an early train. Busses to the Apple Park are located in front of the station.

Location? Service? Cleanliness? Great! Great! Great! This was an unexpected find and also a first time for me to stay in a Toyoko Inn. I can't ask for more with the well laid out and pragmatic design of the relatively sizeable double bed room I got and with breakfast that has menu changed daily thrown in. It is value for money! No wonder this hotel chain got itself in to the Guinness Book of Records for 100% checked in occupancy for a 24 hour period!
