Kanazawa Manten Hotel
Ranked #12 of 102 Hotels / Ryokan in Kanazawa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 June 2014

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.

Room Tip: Make sure you order a non-smokers room when you book. We did and had no problems.

The Kanazawa Manten Hotel is an economical buy, but being a relatively large hotel, the Japanese propensity for bureaucracy to keep chaos at bay is at the forefront of their management philosophy. The rooms are clean, small (of course), but priced right. It's also close to the station. However, there doesn't appear to be much international awareness as simple things like using their laptop in the business center is impossible due to a lack of any English instructions. Also, avoid, at all costs, their western breakfast. It's as if the chefs, if you can use the term, had to replicate a simple scrambled egg, potato, and ham meal with only a picture and they were limited to using cardboard and artificial colors as ingredients. Since the staff appeared to have been trained by the soup Nazi, the place resembled a school cafeteria rather than a restaurant. It's not a bad place for a bed, but don't expect much beyond that.

Good : Walking distance with a little suitcase from the Kanazawa railway station.

Poor: The room where I was given first was not really cleaned, so I asked them to move me to other room. Both rooms were average size for business singles, but I could not leave my suitcase open in order to get to the bathroom, so it was painful.

They do not allow you to charge your room for your evening meal in their own hotel restaurant. I was asked to go back to the room, fetch my wallet and come back so it was very inconvenient. Their coin laundry was the most expensive of all hotels where I have ever stayed in Japan.

Their advert said that there is an open air Onsen. Well... It was a tiny pond for one person or two to squeeze in and it was felt quite dishonest of them making it sound as if they have a huge open air Onsen area. So I left for other hotel without extending my stay in Kanazawa.

Relatively nice and clean hotel but some of my companions got rooms that smell of cigarette smoke. Air conditioner/heater control was not user friendly, thus most of us ended up having a quite uncomfortably warm room throughout our sleep (regretting later for even turning the "aircon" on). The buffet breakfast was great, though the main meal was not "buffet" but of fixed serving rather.

Found promotion rate on the internet for this facility so then we have one night accomodation in this hotel. Price is JPY 6,800 for twin, it's super cheap in Japan market. Unit bus (Shower and restroom) is attached with each room, and they have very big onsen bathroom (based hot spring ) for share use. Of course, men and women are separated for privacy reason.

But,,, I don't recommend this hotel for foreigner tourist, because you can't bring in your big luggage into this small accomodation. The hotel is closed to Kanazawa station, but the location is very quiet so you will be bored with surrounding .

Highly recommend for the budget traveller with your own vehicle , then you have a meaning .

Some of hotel staff speak English at the level of routine service if my memory is correct.
