Ishigakijima Hotel Olive
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Neat, clean, friendly and well positioned. We stayed a night in a Japanese style room which was a first for us. Comfy with a wonderful Japanese Bath. Breakfast excellent value - not to be missed. Lovely little departure gift - excellent value for money hotel.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled as a couple

This place was an unexpected gem. Due to some outward BA flights being delayed I needed to get a hotel at short notice and hastily booked this from the departure lounge at Heathrow and then flew straight in.
The sign on the street is not very big but then neither is the hotel. Look for a khaki green sign with a dove and an olive branch. It's obvious once you realise what it symbolises but no one had told me.
The front door is automatically operated and when I approached it opened and let me enter the reception area which also serves as the breakfast room. It's all very compact (as most things in Japan tend to be) but it worked well.
The lady who greeted me was exceptionally pleasant and made a great effort to speak English. I was shown up to a modest room which was spotlessly clean. The beds were comfy and the bathroom was tiny which is expected. The room did not smell of cigarette smoke which is a bonus in Japan.
When I checked in I was offered the chance to book breakfast which was 100 Yen (about £0.65 or U$1). I have to confess that in the morning I wasn't really expecting much more than toast and coffee so I was surprised when I was presented with a tray of coffee, toast, butter, jam, a boiled egg, some yoghurt and a small salad. It was absolutely delicious.
I'd recommend this wee place to anyone. It's basic, clean and functional. It's on the bus route to the airport for 520 Yen and very close to the port and bus terminal as well as a couple of great fun restaurants like TeeDa which is a real surprise and on the same street.

Room Tip: The lady who does the reception desk is an absolute gem. Make time to chat with her!

Don't go here with children who need activities on tap or if you want a swimming pool or beach on your doorstep. Or if you want a large room.

Do go to Hotel Olive if you like excellent service, really clean rooms and the best location possible for access to the bus terminal (2 minutes), the ferry terminal (3 minutes) and all the city centre restaurants. And freshly-baked bread and fruit as part of a small breakfast.

In short: If you want to stay in one resort for most of your Ishigaki vacation this hotel is not for you. If you want to explore Ishigaki and its neighbouring islands from one central location it's ideal.
