This hotel located in the popular area is close to many sightseeing spots and surrounded by quite a lot of restaurants to choose from and shops. You as the hotel guest can also use the onsen facility on the top floor which is just awesome and open quite long time.

This hotel is located almost halfway between Kanazawa's amazing Japanese garden and the quirky 'Ninja Temple', and both are easily reached by foot (or by hopping on the loop bus, which goes near the hotel). The rooms are well designed so that even though they aren't spacious somehow I found a place for everything. The mattresses are firm (in contrast... More

Consistent with previous reviews the primary pro of this hotel is that has a fantastic location. It is as central as can be for all the sights, eating, and shopping in Kanazawa and is well served by local and JR buses, which was initially intimidating, but once we figured it out, was fine. In selecting a hotel in Kanazawa, the... More

We were travelling through Japan and wanted to stop in Kanazawa specifically for the Kenroku-en Garden. The weekend we were going to be in Kanazawa happened to be a holiday in Japan which we weren't aware of when we booked. So everything was booked when we were looking and this was one of just a few choices. We ended up... More

The hotel can be reached by bus from the trainstation. Buses don't run till late. If you have a JR pass, you can use the free JR bus, that stops not far from the hotel. We know that hotelrooms in Japan can be small, but our room (a semi double) was tiny. The lady at reception called it a single... More

For some reason all accomodations in Kanazawa were booked. There only were some rooms left at this hotel. When we entered the room we thought we opened a closet. Smallest room I have ever been into in my entire life. Besides this the matras of the bed (occupying 90% of the room space) was of an annoying uncomfortable metal spiral... More

The biggest compliment I can give this hotel is that they accommodated my change in reservation dates a week before I flew off to Japan. I actually had to shorten my stay but they were very understanding and professional about it. There is a Seattle’s Best Coffee on the ground floor (it isn’t 24 hours) which surprisingly also serves a... More

I stayed in Kanazawa one night and choose this hotel since it had a very reasonable price. I was pleased with the value for the price. The room was very small yet organized.

The room is very small and the "double" bed is hardly big enough for 2 adults. Otherwise the hotel is clean, modern and bright and the WiFi works well. The onsen on the roof is quite an experience for a westerner but wasn't as scary as I had previously thought. The location is nearby to the castle and gardens, and... More

“We faced the back of the hotel towards the castle park-rooms facing the main street of Katamachi could be noisy. Twin bed rooms generally are larger and more comfy for westerners than the semi-doubles provided in many Japanese "double" rooms.”
