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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I stayed there for 5 days with my wife and baby, and it was an excellent stay. The staff was friendly, and especially we really enjoyed breakfast. In fact, this hotel is famous for offering excellent breakfast, and we had no complaint for it. They offer traditional Japanese breakfast as well as local specialities with more than 50 choices in total. They also offer western style breakfast, too.

Also, the hotel is famous of baby-friendly. They provide free baby-bed, baby toys, baby buggy, and many more including nappies! (better to pre-book for large items such as baby buggy and bed as stock is limited). Also, wash machine and tumbler are available on 6th floor (charged. JPY200 for wash machine and JPY100 for tumbler for 30min. You can purchase washing powder from vending machine in the wash machine room). Because of their services to baby and laundry facilities, we saved a lot of spaces in our suitcases!

The car park is available at the hotel, and additional car parks are available at 3 different locations which are all a few minutes walking distance.

The hotel location is also convenient. Only 10~15 min. walk from Ishigaki main town with lots of restaurants/shops/main market as well as ferry terminal for other islands.
We will definitely stay at this hotel next time again if we have an opportunity to visit the island.
Highly recommended.

I stayed in this hotel for 6 days on my scuba diving trip. Location of hotel is excellent, close to port where boat departs, close to bus terminal which is convenient to reach airport and other place. The room is bigger then other hotels with the same price, breakfast is delicious, healthy and tasty. I enjoyed it very much.

Spent 2 nights in the hotel:

Pros:
- Nice and clean room. Large and very new.
- Great breakfast.
- GREAT STAFF. They all speak little English (level varies), but they will invariable go out of their way to help and communicate. Even look up words in their smartphones. After a few days in Okinawa, you lean to appreciate this.
- Good local restaurants around.
- Just 3 blocks away from a great park where you can run and workout in public stations.

Cons:
- Only problems are around sleeping :-)
- There's a lights switchboard right next to bed. Each one of the 4 switches has an LED light on, when it's off.
- So, at night, you have 4 strong LEDs right in your face. It's very bright. You need to figure out ways to cover it.
- The pillow is very odd. Long, with one section being a regular western pillow and another hard to describe. I would move the bed away from the wall and let the second part fall behind.
- Fridge is SUPER loud. Wakes you up loud.

Hope this helps.

Easy to find. Easy check in (although for some reason they assumed my wife and I wanted a 3rd bed... and japanese wife told me the japanese written on the counter insinuated they would provide a 3rd "person" to sleep with you--typo, of course...)

very roomy compared to japanese hotel rooms... bath was definitely Japanese size, though. Beds fine, no other issues. view of port. ho-hum.

Breakfast was "just" so-so. very convenient, but crowded... not necessarily worth the price.

The room is spacious compared to other similar hotels in Japan. Very clean and tidy with a variety of amenities to choose from. One down side is that you may have to park a bit further away when the hotel's
Carpark is full. Quite hard to find especially in the dark.

This is a business hotel with several everyday Japanese couples and families. Not for romantics. Very clean and practical. Every other floor is a non-smoking floor. They set out an entire breakfast every morning, includes a hot dish. In the lobby they have an entire computer set-up with printer and fax. Having brought my own computer, I stayed in touch with my son everyday and was able to call home (Skype) on Christmas day.

Unfortunately, we did not request a room with an ocean view. But this was, yet, a convenient location. Noodle shops in walking distance.

A rental car is necessary. Be sure to visit all the observation points, including Banna Park (be prepared to spend some time getting there and give yourself time to appreciate the solitude). You can pass on both caves. Only if you are a real adventurer, the cave at Ibaruma does open to a little volcanic spot on the bay. With the flash on your camera you can capture some interesting artifacts inside that smelly dirty cave. Both Kabira Bay and Yaeyama Cultural Garden are tourist traps but you can still find much to explore and appreciate, particularly the views.

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of nights in March. The staffs are very helpful and friendly, the room is very clean and the breakfast is excellent. Great coffee!
I remember seeing a reviewer mentioned about the size of the tooth brush being kid size. Actually my dentist told me to use small and soft toothbrush so I think the size of the toothbrush is fine.
Thanks for all the stuffs, we enjoyed our stay and will be looking to stay at Vessel hotel
again.

I was kind of dubious after we arrived at the front of the hotel. Yes, there is heavy industry out your window and the neighborhood looks better for office parks than a hotel. But the staff is very friendly, the amenities very nice for the price and room is clean and pleasant. The lighting in the room is a bit industrial and the bathroom is a bit claustrophobic, but the value is hard to beat.

Don't let you maps program scare you off - it's a nice easy walk to the bus terminal and a pleasant stroll to most places in downtown. Incongruously, there's at least one very good yakiniku place in the neighborhood, less than 5 minutes from the hotel. And if your Japanese isn't good enough to make a dinner reservation, just ask the front desk.
