I have been to two other Blue Wave hotels and found them of a high standard, but this was better than the others. The hotel is well located, close to the main railway station and bus terminal to the airport, near the junction of the two city tram routes and close to the main entertainment area of the city and within walking distance of the seafront.
The hotel is close to a main road, but in a fairly quiet area. Its rooms were spotless with plenty of storage and a much better size than normal in Tokyo or Osaka hotels, but significantly cheaper. Most of the front desk staff spoke reasonable to good English and were helpful. The hotel had a good breakfast restaurant with a mix of Japanese and western food.
I would recommend this to someone seeking a good mid-range hotel in Kagoshima.More
