We stayed here for 2 nights during our summer vacation weekend in Japan called Obon which is one of the busiest weeks for traveling.
The hotel is located in the busiest area of Kanazawa called Korinbo, you can take a bus from Kanazawa station (200 yen per ride). It takes about 10 mins depending on traffic, and there are several bus routes from Kanazawa station to Korinbo so it is easy to find one at the bus terminal.
The hotel is located just a block away from where the Korinbo bus stop is. If you are coming from Kanazawa station, get off at the Korinbo bus stop and walk 30 seconds back towards Kanazawa station. It is also convenient for sightseeing, Kanazawa Castle, Kenrokuen Gardens and 21st Century Museum are all within walking distance. Also they sell one-day bus tickets for 500 yen and most of the attractions in Kanazawa will be covered by bus and walking.
When you check in, they will probably offer you a free membership with the hotel, and you will get a check-out time extension from 11am to 12pm if you become a member.
We stayed in a semi-double room which is very small, but it is probably standard for Japanese business hotels in big cities. The room is new and nice. They provide free wifi service in the room and you can get the password on the TV screen. The room had a couch against window which functioned for putting our backpacks and so on.
The bathroom was really nice and clean, with a glass wall shower booth and a bathtub, which is larger than a standard Japanese business hotel. There is an anti-fog mirror in the bathroom which is convenient.
The last thing we would like to mention is that their service is amazingly good. We left the baggage (a small suitcase and 2 plastic bags with lots of souvenir) at the hotel on the day we checked out, because we had half day of sight-seeing in Kanazawa before our train back home. After visiting Higashi Chayagai which is an area of Geisha tea houses and 21st Century Museum, we came back to the hotel to pick up our baggage. They brought us our small suitcase but they lost our 2 plastic bags. Later they found that they accidentally handed the 2 plastic bags to another customer, and when they called me to tell me they had found our plastic bags, the manager insisted on bringing our stuff to us in Tokyo. We accepted their apology because he came all the way from Kanazawa to Tokyo, which usually takes 4.5-5 hours by train. We thought this was an outstanding service of the hotel, because they could have just mailed our stuff.
With all the experiences we had during our stay at Hotel Trusty Kanazawa Korinbo, we would definitely come back to this hotel next time.
