Some key tourist sites are easily reached from the Manten. The hotel is within a few minutes walk of the train and bus station. It is modern and clean and we experienced friendly English speaking staff. A wifi router is available from the desk free of charge and works OK. In addition to the typical toilet and bath/shower room, the Manten also offers a nice Onsen if you enjoy a good soak. A breakfast package is available for 1000Yen and is recommended for its convenience. Western and Japanese options are available. The Western includes a choice of ham slice or beef patty, potato, broccoli and carrot (odd for breakfast) and scrambled egg. Toast and a choice of rolls, fruit salad and yoghurt and coffee/tea and fruit juice. We had no hassles getting refills. There are some nice garden views available from the breakfast room, but t was busy during our stay. There is a moderately priced restaurant for evening meals or you can try the convenience stores and restaurants in the train station shopping centre or walk 5-10 mins to nearby restaurants. Kanazawa is not on the main westerner tourist trail so you will not find as many English menus or window displays with marked prices as you have in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. The hotel is a good option for tourists because of its quality, reasonable price and proximity to the station with its tourist information office and hop on, hop off tourist loop buses which are good value at 500 Yen for the day. Tip: Cheap drinks (beers, wine) and meals are always available from convenience stores and supermarkets; the hotel has a vending machine nook on each floor that also has a microwave oven for guest use so you can heat meals from the stores or supermarkets.
