“Perfectly adequate, unspecial commercial hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2010

The Toyoko Inn chain is clean, simple, unpretentious and very much as expected from a low budget business hotel.

Room was clean, bed was hard as hell but comfy enough if you slept on top of the covers. Humidifier in the room made the dry air acceptable again.

This hotel is aimed firmly at the Japanese market and fits the niche well. It accepts but does not cater specially for non Japanese guests.

The staff are service oriented, but this is expected and thus unexceptional

The complimentary breakfast is 100% Japanese, and plentiful. The complimentary light evenug meal was disgusting by any standards. Never have curry in Japan! A treat to be avoided!

If visiting Kanazawa for the cultural sights this is the wrong Toyoko Inn! You need to stay at the other one! We had no choice. We stayed in Golden Week.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2008

Spent two nights here in October. It was only a 5 minute easy walk from the station (just turn right out of the station and you will run into it). There are several Toyoko Inn's in Kanazawa so do be sure you know which one you are going to.

It is not particularly close to the attractions but all the buses leave from the station so we did not find that a problem. On returning to the station, several of the bus lines went straight pass the hotel so we were just able to jump off.

This is a Japanese business hotel and, as such, you have to expect small rooms. However, the room was spotless, very modern and the furnishings of a good quality. The bathroom was equally small but also pristine. They have gone to quite some attention to ensure that it looks reasonably light and airy despite the small size of the room. They are plenty of toiletries on available, even a face mask!

There is also a free Japanese breakfast downstairs in the morning, English reading newspapers, free internet and coin washing machines/dryers.

Although it does not have "atmosphere", I would have to put this place down as one of the best value for money places we stayed at for our nearly four weeks in Japan. The place was full of Japanese businessmen, and seeing what they would typically expect to stay at is also a valid experience in itself.
