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.

3.0 of 5 bubbles
The room was extremely small which made it difficult to keep 2 medium sized suitcases open in the hallway. Only one person could really walk about the room at any one time or you would bump into each other. However this is quite typical of business budget hotels in Japan. We ended hanging out at the lobby area in the afternoon where there was free water, coffee and teas (hot and cold teas).

Location wise, Ishigaki city centre is small and everywhere is walkable. This place was near the port and was about 5-10 mins walk from the public market. Note that there is no free on site parking. You will need to park at the P sign diagonally opposite the hotel, which was 100 yen per hour, capped at 1800 yen per day.

Amenities wise, there’s a coin operated washing and drying machine room which was convenient. The lobby lounge was spacious and comfortable. Some of the older / more experienced workers could speak minimal English - we tried asking them to get us a cab from our car return site back to the hotel but was difficult to communicate. We ended up walking 30 mins back to the hotel which wasn’t too bad.

Breakfast is provided - rice onigiri is made on the spot by an ojisan (uncle) and there is a variety of flavours to choose from (spam, seaweed, plum etc). There was also small bowls of soba with dashi soup. Simple but adequate

ユーグレナ石垣港離島ターミナルに近いホテルの1つで、周辺のホテルを比較してリーズナブルな価格で宿泊できるホテルです。その分部屋や狭いですが、ロビー等の他の設備と同様に清潔に保たれているため、ホテル滞在を楽しむ、というより、石垣及び八重山離島巡りの拠点として利用するといいでしょう。
(滞在中、シーツ交換やルームクリーニングをしない代わりに、無料で1点お菓子を貰えますが、ホテルを観光拠点として利用し、ホテル内にいる時間が短いのであれば、そのサービスを利用するといいかもしれません)

ホテルの宿泊者であれば(ディナータイム以外は)ロビー脇の食堂で無料でドリンクをいただくことが出来ます(且つ、朝食として、具材に石垣の食材を活用したおにぎりがふるまわれます。おにぎりの具材は自由に選択できます)。スタッフは(一部素っ気ない対応の方も居ますが)基本的に適度な距離感で接客してくれるため、特に不愉快な思いはしないと思います。入口は1階にあり、フロントは2階にありますが、エレベーターで昇降できるため、車椅子等の障碍を持つ方でも気軽に利用できます。
フロント脇に、小さいながらギャラリーが併設されており、絵画や写真等のアートのミニ展示が催されていることがあります。チェックイン・チェックアウト手続きの時間、食事前後の時間を利用して見てみるのもいいかもしれません。

It's one of the hotels near Euglena Ishigaki Port Remote Islands Terminal, and is reasonably priced compared to other hotels in the area. Therefore the rooms are small, but they are kept clean as well as other facilities such as the lobby, so it's better to use it as a base for touring around Ishigaki and Yaeyama islands rather than just enjoying your stay at the hotel.
(During your stay, you'll receive one free snack in exchange for not having your sheets changed or room cleaned. If you are using the hotel as a sightseeing base and spending only a short time in the hotel, you may want to take advantage of that service).

Hotel guests (except for dinner time) can enjoy free drinks at the cafeteria by the lobby(And for breakfast, rice balls with ingredients made from Ishigaki ingredients will be served. You can choose any ingredients for the onigiri). The staff (although there are some who are not so friendly) basically serve you at a reasonable distance, so you will not feel particularly uncomfortable. The entrance is on the first floor, and the front desk is on the second floor.
There is a small gallery next to the front desk, where mini exhibitions of paintings, photographs, and other artworks are sometimes held. You may want to take advantage of the time during check-in/check-out procedures or before or after meals to take a look.

Quite a small room but it is still quite clean with the things you need in a compact space. Breakfast is great where you got the chef made the riceballs for you right away. Staff speaks little English here but it"s still okay with body language and so pale English. Would stay here if you want to be near the port and don't want to pay a lot.

Thank you for staying at this hotel. How was your trip in Yaeyama? If you enjoyed in Ishigaki, we are happy. Most people of this hotel's staff can't speak English, but we tried to use body language and little English. Thank you for understanding. We are looking forward to seeing you again!

Just less than 5 mins walk to the ferry and the bus terminal, one of the best locations with a very bargaining price.
Besides, the hotel nearby has all the restaurants you can choose from. The Village and the Walking street also just a walking distance from the hotel.

Most important, the hotel staff is so nice and helpful.
I really like this hotel and certainly will stay in there again by the next visit.

Very good location and easy to find and superclose to buss and boat terminal.
Rooms are small as always in Japanese hotels and with the standard old and dirty looking carpets on the floor.
The bathroom has a bad smell and mold in the air ventilation.
Cleaning almost non existent and could also be traded away against a beverage on the reception.
Bedsheets not changed for 5 days.
"Rooftop bar place" was just a empty roof with no thing.
Breakfast was a joke...two pieces of rice with seaweed around and a 3-4 different taste options on the filling.
All in all it was just the location was working for this place and will not recomend or return.

This hotel is in a good location just a few minutes from the port and town centre.
However, the rooms were very old fashioned, damp and unclean. There was mould growing on the walls in my room - I changed rooms and the next room was just the same. The bathrooms are very small and damp. My biggest concern was the fact that I returned to my room to find that the housekeeping had left the door wedged open. There is no safe in the rooms so this was a serious issue. The rooms look onto a brick wall. Overall I wouldn’t recommend this hotel, it certainly isn’t 3 stars, I would give it 1 or 2 and it is very poor value for money.

We spent some days in Ishigaki in order to take day trips out to the various islands. This hotel is less than five minutes from the ferry port, and is just round the corner from many shops, restaurants and the market. The staff are friendly and helpful and one guy, I think the manager, is specially good, with fluent English. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Particularly pleasant us the roof terrace, where one can sit with an evening drink to watch the sunset and the boats coming and going in the Harbour.

This hotel is one of the closest hotels to the ferry terminal and the bus terminal.
Recently renovated, everything at the hotel was fresh and decorated with a taste. The price was very reasonable for this kind of simple hotel.
I would go back there again when I travel solo. If you are keen for resort experience, this is not the right place though.

The hotel is located very conveniently near the bus terminal and ferry terminal. There is a restaurant just next to the hotel which opens till late and serves very good food. A short walk from the hotel are many other places to venture to as well.

The hotel staff do not speak much English, but were extremely helpful to the best of their ability to assist in my queries. They serve excellent complimentary and unlimited servings of onigiri for breakfast which you can choose from a variety of flavours. I loved their soba noodles and they also provided a range of juices, coffee, tea for all hotel guests.

Recommended for their excellent service and location.

Ishigaki city is not a touristic attraction on its own but a great starting point for Ishigaki-jima and neighbouring islands.

This hotel is next to the ferry terminal.

It is refurbished and you got the whole set of amenities making life easier. There is even a coin laundry. Plus, THE STAFF ARE NICE AND SMILEY.

On the improvements side, room ventilation I would highlight (though it is clear how difficult it is in a subtropical area to keep interiors dry).
