Dormy Inn is ideally located next to the Sogawa shopping street. One of the pleasant surprises there is they have a nice public bath. Cooperative staff and Good facilities Value for Money. Excellent location and close to the shopping & restaurants. Please be aware that Check-in is quite late - 15:00 Extra charge for early check-inn ! Very strict in rules Coffee available only at specific times

I have recently sent my opinion about Hotel Dormy Inn in Toyama.
However, I wonder whether or not you have received it.
I am sending it to you again.

My wife and I stayed at Dormy Inn Hotel in Toyama, Japan (May 2013), for four nights. We went there because our son was going to attend a conference in Toyama. So it was a good opportunity to visit the city.
We were not able to book the hotel from our country. The staff at the hotel were kind enough to help and keep rooms available for us until the time we arrived there. They also gave us enough information how to get to the hotel, as we would arrive at Toyama after midnight. We really appreciate their help.
The hotel was small like many hotels in Japan, but the room was clean and rather comfortable. There were only two small problems, first the bed was small for two people to sleep on, especially because one side of it was pushed against the wall, which made it difficult for one of us to get out of it.
I think if you are travelling alone, that can’t be a problem. Second, the idea of having a wash basin in the room instead of the bathroom was a bit strange and uncomfortable. Considering the small space, there might have been no other choice.
The staff spoke some English. Breakfast was good, because both Japanese and international style were served. I used the public bathroom (hot water) available at the hotel once. It was good. On the whole, we had a good time there.
Toyama is a quiet, beautiful and clean city. Unfortunately, we missed the chance to see the beautiful cherry blossoms because we didn’t get there early enough. One day we took the tour to the mountains and visited the high walls of snow and the beautiful dam there.

Room Tip: We had 2 rooms and both were the same.

I enjoyed my 4 day stay. Staff were prompt about everything. Food was great, if you like that sort of thing and central to everything. The communal baths were an experience and encouraged research before using.

The hotel offers a place to sleep at night. The Toyama castle is right next door. There is a 24hr convenience store opposite which is quite useful. The breakfast is quite decent. The room though small, was sufficient for spending the night. The hotel staff do not speak English which can sometimes be quite difficult. One of the draw backs in the room that we selected was that the washbasin was in the table in the room and not in the bathroom which was an inconvenient. Also there was no VOD system for movies. The hotel is about 1.3km from the station and you can take the tram from next to ANA Crowne plaza. The bus stop for long distance buses is just a 2 minute walk from the hotel.

My wife and I visited Toyama because we wanted to break our journey on our way to Tateyama for its infamous 18m high snow corridor along Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route. In Toyama, we chose Dormy Inn for its walking proximity to JR Station and the cherry blossoms on the banks of Matsukawa River.

The hotel is located about 1.3km from JR Toyama Station. The cool windy spring weather did not bring a sweat, even when pulling our cabin bags. Along the way, we walked past Shiokura Bridge which spanned the Matsukawa River.

The cherry blossoms along the river were in full bloom in April and it was indeed a sight to behold. The narrow width of river led to the cherry blossoms forming a canopy over the approx 1.5km length of river from Imagi Bridge to Matsukawa Bridge. River cruise was available to view the cherry blossoms up close. Along the banks, there were numerous outdoor artworks to be enjoyed.

From Shiokura Bridge, we walked past Toyama Castle Park, which occupied an entire block, and reached Dormy Inn. The hotel is located next to Toyama International Conference Centre and ANA Crowne Plaza Toyama. To the extent that Dory Inn provided functional accommodation, it probably performed well for conference delegates. Those seeking higher hotel standards can stay at ANA. For us, we preferred to spend our money to visit the snow corridor in Tateyama.

The hotel room was small with the Twin beds almost occupying the entire room. A writing desk, a LCD screen and wardrobe complete the furniture in the bedroom. The bathroom was compact sized with a bathtub and stand-in shower, WC and wash basin. Circulation space was tight. Fortunately, prior to arriving in Toyama, we had forwarded the bulk of our luggage to our next destination after Toyama. Room was clean and well maintained.

What we found interesting about the hotel is the coin laundry facility, onsen and night snacks.

There are 2 coin laundry facilities, one located in the public area and the other located inside the onsen for female guests. This allowed female guests to conveniently drop their laundry into the washer and dryer, enjoy their onsen, and collect their laundry when they are done with their onsen. There is a separate onsen for guys and if you choose to do your laundry, you have to use the one in the public area.

The hotel provided its guests with a great supper snack service at its restaurant. Guests enjoyed complimentary hot noddles soup and tea every night as supper before bedtime. Like many guests, my wife and I enjoyed our programme of nightly onsen followed by supper. In the cool spring months, it was a nice routine.

As tourists, Dormy Inn served us well as a base to visit Tateyama and to view the lovely cheery blossoms along Matsukawa River. Judging by the presence of locals, I am sure the hotel did well for domestic travellers and participants at the nearby conference centre.

Well-rated on tripadvisor, but what a most boring experience. Check-in was difficult enough, where the receptionist on duty could not understand my simplest questions, and just kep repeating the questions.. Found my bag by myself, gave up on the Internet, and went up to my room, and was shocked to find the sink embedded into the table.

Probably a creative use of space, but what a hassle sitting down and brushing teeth, shaving, and washing up. Wet the entire table as a result.

Room was small, and shower even more so. Immediately rushed out of room, to try to spend time in the city instead, but there really is very little in the city either.

The only consolation was in the public baths, which was clean and quite inviting.. Again, it was quite obvious this was positioned for the local business traveller, with minimum wants and a nice public bath, certainly not for a tourist...

We stayed at this hotel during a conference in Toyama. Comparing to other hotels in Toyama that our colleagues stayed in, Dormy inn was a great value for money. It is easy to find and only 2 minutes walking from the Toyama castle and the Toyama International Conference Center.
The room was ok but a bit small, and with the lavatory outside the bathroom.
The public baths were very nice, and breakfast (Japanese style only) was also very good. The only drawback is that almost no one from the staff speaks english.
