Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Thumbelina2 wrote a review Jun 2020
London, United Kingdom
3.0 of 5 bubbles
I had a good sized room with a table & 2 chairs. There was a large luggage rack which would fit 2 small cases. There was a clothing hanging area. The bed had a duvet cover which was dirty so I had to get it changed. It wasn't changed daily because there was an under sheet so I am not sure how often the duvet cover is washed. There was a tempura/foam pillow & a normal feather one.

Unfortunately the large TV only had Japanese channels. There was a fridge and a large safe.

The bathroom was quite a good size but they only provided a smallish towel. The water was very soft. The bath was quite shallow (more like an American bath than a deep Japanese one). The hotel only provided bottled water on 1st night despite the fact I stayed for 5 nights!

There was a very good buffet breakfast with an extensive choice of admittedly mostly Japanese food. However there were croissants, fruit, soft scrambled eggs and a coffee machine.

Staff spoke limited English. It was a 20 mins walk to to the port for boat trips to other islands. There were a few restaurants opposite the hotel. The pool closes in November which is a pity because it's still quite hot.

There was a small hotel shop with a few necessities and tourist items. The airport bus stops at hotel and you can also catch a bus from the hotel to visit Kabila bay (but they are not frequent!). The hotel does provide a shuttle to the airport but it's very infrequent.

There was some noise from other guests next door & in the corridor. The hotel seemed popular with large groups.

Well, we booked this hotel because we wanted a hotel in the town with a pool.
When we arrived, we were told that the pool was closed coz it was off season.
The rooms were clean, the bathroom as well.
Walking to downtown takes around 10-15minutes, but at night, the streets are really dark.
A taxi to/from downtown costs around 500yen only.

Television is Japanese only, so no CNN or so.

The rooftop bar is average.

There is a bus stop right outside the hotel which brings you to the airport in 30minutes, that was very convenient.

I suppose, we would give a better rating had the pool been open....

The hotel is located in a hill and 10-15min driving distance to Ishigaki town. Our room was big in Japanese standard with view of the Ocean. We arrived at 11am and were told that the room was not ready and should come back after 2pm. We have a 3 years old kid and we were planning to visit the nearby island and not having a room is a great inconvenience for us. They finally told us they have a room available but need to charge us extra which I found ridiculous. This tells you what kind of hotel this is - a cheap hotel with no hearts.

Pros:
- Located in a hill with nice view of the surroundings
- Free wifi in the room and lobby

Cons:
- A dated hotel
- Poor service
- A small outside pool
- Located away from everywhere, need a car or taxi to get downtown
- Staff can't speak good English

Ishigaki is a tropical paradise, truly one of the most beautiful places in the world. We mistakenly booked here instead of the Intercontinental, but stayed anyway. The rooms are dated, plain and dreary. The pool is what you would expect from a cheap motel beside an interstate highway. Considering they are not beside the ocean, you would think they would make an effort to at least make the pool attractive.

While we were here on vacation, it is hard to get completely away from emails etc, and hooking up to their network was an ENORMOUS pain in the derriere. Completely unnecessary in this day and age and could be remedied with the most minimum of alterations.

Unless you are getting the room comped to your for free, I recommend the Intercontinental or anywhere else but here. Nikko Hotels, if you cant put any more effort in to updating this property, please just give up or let someone else manage it!

This is a pleasant place to stay. Staff is efficient and friendly. There is a pool, spa, and onsen, but NO GYM/FITNESS center. Free WiFi. Tea, but NO COFFEE in the rooms. Breakfast buffet is generous and tasty.
One unusual aspect of this hotel, depending on the level of housekeeping you select (by placing the appropriate magnet on the door), you will receive a daily coupon of 500-1000 yen to be used in their store in the lobby. Pretty cool to encourage people to go green.

I booked five nights. I stay with my family and kids.
If rent the car, it is the best hotel on the island.
In fact, everything is perfect during my stay. Staff is helpful.
Half hour walking distance to the city center.
I have been tried a restaurant inside of the hotel, the buffet dinner is nice.
Express Bus just half an hour to the airport.
It is closed to a bananas park, of course, you need to drive about 10 mins.

The room is clean & the facility is good enough, the Sauna is nice.

One thing I don't understand, I book the room with 2 adult and 2 kids. They assign the smaller size king bedroom which compares another standard room. But I didn't ask the hotel the reason. I hope it is not racial discrimination.

母と叔母との旅行で3泊しました。3人一部屋だったので、それほど広くはありませんでしたが、清潔で心地よい空間でした。大浴場も広くて清潔、朝食も地元の食材を使ったメニューがたくさんあって、3日食べても飽きないほどバラエティ豊かでした。夜に島唄のショーもあり、賑わっていました。
石垣島と周りの自然溢れた島々に癒されたので、ぜひまた訪れたいと思っていますが、その際はまたこちらのホテルにお世話になりたいと思います。

The room wasn't very large, but large enough and cozy. The big bathhouse was clean, best way to make you relaxed. You can enjoy a wide variety of food with local ingredients for breakfast, we were never bored for 3 days. Traditional Okinawa folk music show is held every evening, which was fun to watch. All in all, we were really satisfied with this hotel.

We spent 2 nights at Art hotel. The hotel seems to have newly renovated the lobby and room but the bathrooms in room and toilets in common area are not renovated. The bathrooms are d and dirty, there were obvious hair and dirt in our bathtub. Room cleaning service was bad. What worse was front desk service was unfriendly and u helpful. I have quened up at the front desk for nearly 10 mins and hope to ask reception staffs to help to make a call for me to make a dinner booking at a local restaurant as most local restaurant cant speak english. What i got the reply from the reception was that “we dont provide this service, you may use the public landline to call yourself”. I was shocked they could be so unhelpful and i went on and explain because i cant speak japanese so want get her assistance. I will never tecommend thos hotel to othets. Not worth the money.

Hotel's shuttle bus survice from/to the airport is provided. But the public bus runs more frequently. The fare is about $5-6. Taking public bus, you can go to ferry pier via hotel. And from the hotel, you can go to not only the ferry pier but also Kabira bay (about $7). The bus stop is located just beside the hotel's entrance. My flight to Naha was early in the morning, I took the public bus.
