“Very nice view hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Our room layout is nice, with the beds facing to the window overlooking the "seaview". Lovely view in the morning when sun arise. Worth the money to choose this "seaview" room type.

The Hotel is nicely situated, walking distance to JR station; ferry pier (to nearby island) and a garden with Takamatsu castle. Lots of signs are around to direct you to different places, so you won't get lost. It is a specially designed and structured complex, we reckon. We heard there is a lovely promenade around and by the sea, we didn't try it out as it is too late when we get to the Hotel, but maybe nice to have a walk when it is around the "sunset" hours.

There is a convenient store open late night in a multi-complex shopping mall/ convention centre opposite to the Hotel. If you want to buy specialty souvenir from Takamatsu, go a bit further to the JR station, and there is one convenient shop with local specialty souvenir stocked. The shop should be still in its opening hours at around 22:00 hrs, not bad to visit if you got nothing to do around at night....Yes, one of the down side is there is no shopping district around that open at night. It should be a business district so more activities will be around in the day-time, I believe.

The selection of breakfast is not huge compared to other hotels in Japan though. However, the bakery provided in the buffet breakfast are very nice, I especially like the "pastry with fig inside". There should be a bakery in the Hotel too, if it will open earlier during the day, I will definitely buy some pastry with me back home.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher level room if you are a light sleeper. The noise from the motorbike driving around...

We went to Takamatsu to again visit Naoshima Island’s art museums and art house projects. We selected the hotel for its location near the ferry terminal.

This was the best hotel we stayed in during our recent long trip through Japan. The location, room and staff made it a wonderful stay.

We had a high floor “standard twin room” that was large and comfortable with a fantastic view of the harbor and Takamatsu Castle in Tamamo Park that is just across the street. The hotel staff was helpful and the breakfast was very good. The room had fast and reliable wifi.

The hotel has an excellent location by the train station and a quick walk to the ferry terminals. If you do not have the breakfast plan and are looking for options, there are restaurants in the shopping mall between the hotel and train station.

The very interesting Kitahama Alley area with its shops and restaurants is a 10-minute walk from the hotel past the Takamatsu Castle. One fun restaurant is the Juke Joint Kurobuneya on the second floor of a building that has good Mexican and Izakaya food.

You can also walk to what is claimed to be the longest covered shopping arcade in Japan with it’s shops, restaurants and bars, but it is a long walk to the far end. A cab or a bus may be better for many.

Room Tip: High floor with a view of the harbor.

For travel in and out of Takamatsu, by train or ferry, there is no better location. The hotel is large and well-appointed with good-sized rooms (and large baths!)...ours had a great view of the harbor and the adjacent park. The local street car runs nearby and will take you to the unrivaled Ritsurin Garden. We saw this garden in the rain and it was still spectacular. The hotel restaurant has a good buffet breakfast which was included in our rate. If you like local, smaller restaurants as we do, the hotel is not located in easy walking distance of any. Be prepared to take taxis to where you want to go.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbor view on a high floor.

I booked my two-night stay directly with the hotel via email eight months prior and communications in English were prompt, courteous and helpful. The room was a good size for one person and had a fabulous view of the Seto Inland Sea and ferry/boat terminals from three windows (including the bathroom). I enjoyed sitting by one of the bedroom windows in the evening watching the lights of the boats arriving and departing. Like (I think) all JR hotels two thick bath towels were provided (rather than one - even at some upmarket hotels I find you have to ask for a second towel - better to have two if you want to wash your hair as well as bathe!) and the Japanese tea-set crockery was very pretty. TV sound could be broadcast in the bathroom. The location is ideal for Takamatsu and travel to Naoshima or other islands, being close to the JR station, Kotoden station, buses, taxis, and ferry/boat ports. The walls, turrets and remnants of Takamatsu Castle and its garden are just across the road. The hotel has a great gift shop that also sells some clothes. It also has a bakery, restaurant, bar etc. The main shopping areas are within walking distance and there are also supermarkets (selling fresh food including lunch/dinner boxes), food outlets and other shops very close-by at/near the JR station and the plaza next to the hotel. It is also possible to walk to Takamatsu's main attraction, the wonderful garden of Ritsurin - it is a walk straight down one street so easy to find (2,400 metres = about 1.5 miles), but plenty of transport options right outside the hotel if you decide not to. Being there in the mornings/evenings provides good opportunities for dawn/sunset sea photos. The staff were always helpful. I accidentally left a toiletries bag in the room and only realised after boarding the train for Kyoto. The staff I spoke to on the phone did all they could to help despite language barriers, and I was particularly grateful for the assistance of ?Nagaharu (not sure of his name unfortunately) who spoke good English - he called me back and agreed to arrange for the bag to be forwarded to my next hotel COD. As I was flying home in a couple more days it was important that the bag reached me quickly - which it did, the very next day, and it was swathed in bubble wrap with a "fragile" sticker attached to the courier bag - much appreciated!! This hotel will be my first choice in Takamatsu in future.

Room Tip: Not sure if all the rooms have sea views - I think it would be worth paying extra if not as the view...

I recently stayed at the JR Hotel Clement Takamatsu for 2 nights and did a little video review of the hotel grounds and the inside of a "Hollywood Suite".

If you'd like to see what the hotel and the Hollywood Suite look like, then check out the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYfF9tXwt0o

This hotel is located adjacent to the JR Takamatsu Station. You can walk from the station to the hotel in 1 minute via an outdoor covered walkway. The hotel has a large, modern, open lobby. On the ground floor of the hotel surrounding the lobby is the lobby bar, a lunch/dinner buffet restaurant, a bakery, a wedding salon, and the hotel gift shop. Check-in itself was easy as the hotel front desk spoke English well.

I booked a Hollywood Suite from Rakuten at a rate of 20,000 Yen per night. We were given a room in the 18th floor, with some incredible views of the harbor. The room itself was very large for Japanese standards which was a welcome change since I just came from a hotel in Osaka that had very very tiny rooms :). The amenities inside the room included two twin beds, desk, chaise lounge, arm chair, flat and of course a flat panel tv. Some "unique" items in the room were a pants press (to keep your pants wrinkle free!), an air purifier, and a hot water kettle. The bathroom was also very large, with a full bath and separate shower.

I found my sleep quality in the room to be very good. The room was quiet, the air conditioning was cold, and the beds were comfortable.

For our first day of touristing in Takamatsu we rented a bicycle for 200 Yen from the municipal bike rental which is in the garage just outside the hotel. For our second day of touristing we rented a car, and parked it in the hotel garage overnight for 1,000 Yen.

Overall I had an excellent stay at this hotel and would highly recommend it.

This hotel is located about 100 metres from Takamatsu JR station which was great for us as we were travelling round Japan by rail. It was also close to the local Kotoden railway station and the ferry terminal so handy for trips out of the city. We had a large, comfortable, well appointed room on the 18 floor so we had a fantastic view to the west of Takamatsu. Staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast buffet both western and Japanese was plentiful and varied.The pastries were freshly baked and the hotel has its own bakery. We were given a voucher to cover the 500 yen table charge at the Skyline Bar on the 21st floor which was valid from five to eight pm. The views from the Bar are amazing and the service excellent - drinks are not cheap but as a treat its definitely worth it . We did not try the restaurants in the hotel - there are some in the ANA complex almost next door though for more choice you would probably need to head into the shopping streets.

Takashima is about four hours by road from Kansai airport Osaka and it's easy to get a coach, even if you have little or no command of the Japanese language. We stayed at The Clement Hotel in the city center, next to the bus and train station and overlooking the harbor. A lovely hotel with polite and friendly staff (as always in Japan) very modern and classy, though the breakfast room was little like a posh canteen but the food was good. Apart from the expected Japanese food a full western breakfast was provided; Eggs of all kinds, good bacon, sausages etc. We ate in one of the hotels lounges in the evening and were looked after very well by a very friendly lady who was always on hand to provide the many glasses of Shochu we drank and surprisingly, as the evening past, the amount of Shochu in each glass we ordered was fuller than the last? One thing I loved (as one of those filthy smokers) you can smoke in the hotels bars and lounges, as you can in most of the bars lounges and restaurants in Japan. The Clement is a nice modern hotel and (as the tourist adds' would say) Ideally situated.
