Unremarkable City Centre Hotel close top Main Station
Reviewed 22 August, 2020
A mere 3/4 minutes walk from the Main Station into which we came by Bullet Train ex-Tokyo (Shinjuku). Sadly our luggage came by vehicle and due to the flooding caused by Hagibis arrived a day late.
Reception was dominated (&I mean dominated) by a Halloween Display, and so Americana-esque, which bearing in mind where we were seemed plain wierd.
Everything about the Hotel was fine - Rooms, Breakfast, Bar (such as it was) - but nothing remarkable or Special, except the Gym, which was off-limits to Guests and run as a Private Health Club.
Hotel's location was very good. Very Central. Good Public Transport links all over town and the area. Ir was particularly good for Train Spotters due to being able to watch Bullet Trains and the like come in/out of the Station.
We particularly like the sub-terrainean walkways beneath the Streets where a veritable rabbit warren of tunnels existed with a plethora of Shops & Restaurants. Good Map & sense of Direction proved crucial.
Excellent JR hotel, great rooms and perfect location.

Knew of the hotel and was choice for location (and our JR pass, though no discounts). Is a bit dated, but has that "atmosphere" of Japan in the 1980's.
Great staff and facilities, only BAD thing was the bar on ground floor accepted smokers (can be usual in Japanese cafes too), so we we didn't stay long. Had a fantastic dinner in the hotel's Japanese restaurant (see photo) and another night, we did drinks in their top floor bar (has a restaurant too).
This hotel has the ABC (for Ozzie travelers) news channel and was beneficial to us getting status and up-dates during the virus exercise.
Excellent Location, comfy room

The location is steps away from the entrance to the train/shinkansen station, and also where you can pick up the bus and trolley into the city. The rooms were comfortable, and nice bathroom amenities. It was nice they provided 2 types of pillows, a feather and foam pillow. But the foam pillow and bed were quite firm, as you will find throughout Japan. All Japanese beds are too firm for many Western travelers.
We had dinner at the Chinese restaurant in the hotel, which was nice. The lobby bar had an impressive cocktail selection, but since it allows smoking (as most Japanese bars do), we didn't stay long. The service at check-in and the information area was outstanding. I would absolutely stay at this hotel again if we get to return to Hiroshima.
Accessible, clean, comfortable

We spent 2 nights in a standard twin room, traveled to other parts of Japan, returned and spent the last night in a standard small double room (the price is a lot higher for Saturdays). The hotel is right next to Hiroshima station, near the street cars, near the bus station for the airport bus and sightseeing buses, and near restaurants and convenience stalls (7-11, Lawson's). It is so accessible and so convenient that we love it! They provide good quality amenities and 2 bottles of water daily. The standard twin room, at 26m² is definitely very comfortable for 2, with lots of space for luggage and room to move about. The standard small room, at 18m², is compact but still meets all needs and expectations. I would definitely return to this hotel for my future visits!
