“Fantastic value”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

Stayed here for a night in December 2013 with the partner. Good hotel with a lot going for it.

PROS
- Fairly good value at 4850 for a double at time of visiting
- Very clean with spacious room, lots of imenities and comfortable bed
- Secure with friendly people on the desk
- Located on the end of an arcade ?Shimotori which provides great options for eating and drinking at night. Also within walking distance to the castle (10 minutes)
- 7-11 next door which is very convenient

CONS
- No wifi available in the hotel even in the lobby, just a lan cable system which isn’t ideal for tablet devices.
- Not close to the train station but this is more of a reflection of the JR Kumamoto station being located peripherally to the city centre. Too far to walk (we attempted this regretfully) but a tram goes from the train station and drops you off at the karashimacho stop which is literally out the front of the hotel.

CONCLUSION
Would definitely recommend this to all. It provides clean and spacious rooms and gives the impression of a much more expensive hotel.

Hotel is not within walking distance from the train station but it is near to both Kumamoto castle (about 10-15 mins walk), the shopping arcades and the bus station (Kotsu Centre-5 mins walk). Tram station (Karashimacho stop) is in front of the hotel, I think it is the fifth stop from the tram stop in front of the train station. Having the bus station nearby is a plus for those who need to take buses to places like Aso, Beppu, Yufuiin etc. You can make reservations for your bus ride at the station and need only pay on the day that you take the bus. No extra charge for reservation. Just take a ticket when boarding the bus and pay the fare stated on the display panel (just match your ticket number - the fare displayed below the ticket number is what you pay) before alighting from the bus. It is probably not necessary to reserve, seeing that the buses were generally quite empty but hey better to be safe than sorry.
The taxi ride from the train station to the hotel cost us about 980yen. The driver initially drove us to the wrong hotel, Toyoko Inn but no harm done as the two hotels were close to each other. It helped that I had the hotel address written in Kanji! We booked a room for triple sharing. The room was very spacious with the bathroom, vanity area and toilet all separate from each other. Hotel also can help you to forward your luggage to your next destination via Yamato transport co. Just give your luggage to the reception who will take measurement (not weight) of the luggage, fill up a form and quote the price payable, The hotel staff was helpful despite speaking limited English.

Hotel is next to shopping area (approx. 5 m.) Staffs are very helpful. You can reach here within 5 mins. from Kumamoto JR station by tram. Wifi service is not available no matter reception area (only softbank wifi service available which is not free) Overall for us, it's worth for all yens we paid for this hotel :)
