My family stayed in the UBL Hotel for two nights in late November and early December. The hotel situates in north of the Kumamoto city centre and requires about 20 minutes of driving to the Kumamoto castle. When I drove to this hotel, I did not see any clear road sign leading to its entrance. Nevertheless the building itself was... More

This is besides the fact that the hotel has its own onsen. I stayed 5 nights in a Western-style room, and 1 night in a Japanese-style room.... More

Not very well-located, as it is some distance from the heart of town. Big supermarket nearby, and nice Japanese restaurant. Many rooms appear to be occupied by families with young children; although I had a room at the far end of the corridor, it was still pretty noisy. the room door was not effective in blocking out noise.
