Great beds. Great Service. And they had a wonder breakfast buffet that cost 1,000 yen or about $10. Very convenient location next to the Yamagata Station. When we go back we will stay definitely stay there again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

Stayed a night at Yamagata Richmond hotel during the last week of February and had booked a corner room during the stay. Hotel and room condition still looks great.
Room size is spacious and I feel it is worth to top up abit more to get the corner room.
Location wise, it is about 5mins walk from Yamagata JR station and is situated on the less crowded side of Yamagata JR station. There is a 24hr Valuemax supermarket and 7-eleven within very short walking distance from the hotel.
Service is top notch from the front counter staff and they manage to converse in English well.
Ladies are well taken care of with free facial mask. Bath salt is available at the front desk.
The air condition or heater settings can be set to own preference which unlike Nagoya Richmond hotel. This worried me before my stay as I don't feel comfortable in a warm room.

The only inconvenient side for staying at this great hotel will be when settling for a meal.
There are a few eatery shops at the Valuemax supermarket and the nearby Kajo Central as most of the other restaurants are located at the other side of the JR station.

Final words: Greatly Recommended and I enjoyed my stay in this Richmond hotel

The Richmond is a nice business hotel, few minutes walking distance from the Yamagata Station.

The hotel has a new look and feel, is clean and comfortable.

Our room was a double room which is rather small. However everything was available. But you might want to go for a larger room if you would like to have more space.

The breakfast is mainly Japanese style. The Western-style items include a few types of rolls, pancakes, butter and marmalade.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Yamagata Richmond. Perfectly located near the JR station and restaurants. Would have to have the biggest room for 3 in Japan. Friendly, attentive staff. At 18,600 for 3 people perhaps a bit pricey but worth every yen.

The Richmond Hotel is on the opposite side to the main entrance of Yamagata Station. It is a 5 minute walk and can be easily seen from the station. Service and quality is excellent.
Hotel has free wifi. There is also a coin laundry.
A large supermarket is also convenient to the hotel and just a few minutes walk from the hotel. To find the supermarket, think as if you are standing in the hotel. Walk out of hotel, turn left and walk to the main road running away from the station. Turn hard left again and the supermarket is about 150 metres down the road, left (again) at the next corner. You may be tempted to reach the supermarket by using the carpark behind the hotel. Please don't as it is actually longer. (yes we tried that once).
There are restaurants and cafes in and around the main entrance to Yamagata Station.
