“Ok hotel, but nothing special”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

I stayed here for a couple of nights during a recent business trip to Shimizu. I have stayed at this hotel before, but they seem to have done a recent remodel which was somewhat better. The issue with Shimizu is that there aren't a lot of choices on hotels and this may be the best one. Plus, its pretty cheap for a hotel in Japan.

Having said the above. there are a number of negatives to the hotel. First, very small rooms and they have a modular insert for a bathroom. Nothing terrible and it seemed reasonably clean. Secondly, there was noticeable smoke in the lobby and elevators and there was no WiFi available. They did have hard wired connections, but that didn't help my iPad. The restaurant for breakfast is ok, but again nothing special. There is actually a McDonalds back behind the hotel near a little shopping / market area that is an option for breakfast.

Again, there are downsides, but I'm not sure there is a better one in the area.

We originally chose the Quest because of its convenient location. It is an easy walk from the Shimizu station. We were pleased with the initial impression which was of a modern, efficient hotel. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The room proved to be small but adequate, clean, and had all of the amenities we expected. The staff continued to be helpful when we had questions about the area. The hotel has a restaurant, but we did not use it. All in all, we'd use the Quest again.

Nice hotel with good amenities. Eventhough the number of rooms are less, hotel with good infrastructure and nice staffs.

Main advantage of location just outside of Japan Rail, Shimizu Station and well connected by bus. Sorrounded by shopping malls makes it perfect hotel.

People planning to visit to Nihondhara hills can select this hotel due to its near locality.
