“Reasonable and Clean.”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

I stayed at the Richmond Hotel in Utsunomiya,basically for the location.It is a very short walk from the Utsunomiya station and the convienience of the begin close to the station and there are quite a few places to get a meal in the area.The Hotel is a 'business` hotel,but the rooms are large for a japanese hotel,it is clean and relatively quiet and reasonably priced..The room interior is also tasteful and not damaged.A relative stayed at another hotel close by it was not as good as this.You can included breakfast with your stay,I did and it was good.There are japanese and western options available in the buffet selections too this may be a good idea if you are heading out early.

The staff went out of their way to ensure that our visit to a local customer was a success. We really apprecaite the staff going above and beyond to help us.

In addition to the customer service, the rooms etc... were beyond expectations for a typical "Business Hotel."

I spend a lot of time in Utsunomiya on business, and this is the best hotel I have found so far. Clean well equiped rooms with good beds. Rooms big enough. Across the road from the station and many restaurants in the area. No issues.

We stayed in the hotel for three nights in December. First impressions of the hotel from the lobby is quite nice. The hotel is quite large. The room was quite large for Japan and nicely furnished (really standard Richmond Hotel). As is standard in the wonderful Richmond Hotel chain, the room is spotlessly clean and is a great value for the money. Check-in is the standard Richmond Hotel way. You check-in at the desk (not much English spoken but it doesn't matter!) and then take your room key to the machines off at the side to pay and get a receipt. From there, your key and your room is ready to go!

The location is great. If you take the western exit from the JR station, it is only a three or so minute walk (the hotel is very visible due to its height). Here is a tip on a way to get down to the ground level without walking down the steps (with luggage). You can take the station escalator (towards the southwestern side of the station), turn right to exit the station, turn left outside the station, cross the road towards the right in a few yards by the udon restaurant, then cross the crossing right in front of you and then go left by Mister Donut. The two Richmond Hotels will be on your right a block and a half up ahead, past the Chosun Hotel (Ekimae is the first one of the two Richmond Hotels you'll see).

The Richmond hotel was my home away from home for a two week business trip stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was not big enough to have a dresser which meant living out of a suitcase the whole time, but it was comfortable and clean. They have Wi-Fi access which was nice. The hotel is located close to the train station and was walking distance from a lot of restaurants. The automated check in only allows you to pay for three nights at a time which is kind of an inconvenience. I used the hotel laundry service and was happy with the job they did. Others used the coin operated washers and dryers and had complaints about the time it took their clothes to dry. If I make a return trip I would stay at this hotel again.

Overall, I enjoyed the stay and will return. Very clean, well run hotel in a very convenient location. If you are familiar with the area, you are block from the station and close to a number of restaurants.

I got the breakfast special package and you can choose from a Japanese or Western breakfast. I opted for the "Western" -- a bit odd in it's make up, but very good.

Biggest complaint -- the Wi-fi is weak. Hope they work on that.
The service is a bit odd with required automated check in, but it is convenient if you don't mind yet another machine. Other than that, the service was polite and patient with my limited Japanese and were able to fill in the gaps with English.
