Not the best, not the worst. Stained carpets, old furniture, but clean in other respects. Good breakfast, very good service. Good hot shower! No wifi, but LAN worked great. I need to check out another hotel if I am in the area, but would not revolt if booked here again by the company service.

We stayed for 3 nights on business trip during scorching summer. The hotel is less than 10 minutes walk from Kumagaya Station. The room is really spacious for a Japanese hotel. The room is equipped with all necessities, toiletries, iron and ironing board, HD TV with limited English channel.

Like the rest have mentioned, no wifi available and be prepared for that. The staff have limited English but very friendly especially the room service staff.

There's self service laundry on the top floor with 2 washer and 2 dryer. It can be very busy during the weekend as the hotel is home to many foreigner and expat on long term business trip not only in Kumagaya but to nearby area such as Gunma and Oizumi.

Nice basic hotel that I used as a base for a business trip
Good size room for a Japanese hotel, clean and with all the basic essentials.
The only negative is the hotel has no WI-FI so please remember to take gear that uses LAN cable
Great breakfast in the morning but I would eat out for the evening meal because the menu is not very broad.

My spouse & I stayed here for a week while he worked in Gyoda. It is a rather large hotel, and it seemed there were mostly Westerners during our stay. The room was as large or larger than an Americn holel room and clean enough, but the carpet seemed a bit worn and the open tub drain (typical in Japan) smelled a little like sewer. The hotel is close to the train station, which means that shopping, food and entertainment is nearby. If you get a chance, check out the Western-style wedding chapel on the second floor. It will put any Las Vegas wedding chapel to shame!

The company made arrangements for us all to stay at the King Ambassador Hotel during a recent business trip to Kumagaya area. Everyone in my party except for me got the Superior room, much nicer and for not a lot of extra $ you should go for that if you have the chance. Anyway, I got the standard room and it was ok size wize. The only issue I had really was the carpet in the room, it was disgustingly dirty! I did not even want to walk from the shower to get dressed in the morning I had to wear my slippers the entire time! So first thing I would suggest to the owners is to clean the carpet in the rooms soon! The bed was comfortable enough, the hotel was quiet enough, it's close to the train, shopping and dining and the breakfast buffet was quite good. Also the furniture in the lobby is quite filthy. I guess compared to other hotels in the area it's supposed to be the best, but I have at this point nothing to compare it to.

The King Ambassador is surely the best hotel in Kumagaya. The rooms are very spacious compared to other hotels in Japan. It seems the hotel was planned to be a wedding hotel, but now attracts also business travelers. Broadband LAN-internet is free of charge. The hotel is located nearby restaurants, the train station (Shinkansen) is just a 5 minutes walk.

This hotel is very close to Kumagaya Shinkansen Station. You have to take the JR East Shinkansen trains. The Hotel rooms are very spacious and clean. The hotel has a Japanese Restaurant and the buffet breakfast served (not complmentary) in the morning is very good. The hotel staff are very helpful and courtoeus though they do not speak fluent English.
