“Tiny Rooms, Good Breakfast”
Reviewed 30 October 2008

This hotel is located downtown, but is a 20-minute taxi ride from the JR Shinkansen station. It is also not very close to the main city station or the morning fish market. The hotel is on the upper floors above a commercial arcade. The small lobby is on the 3rd floor. The hotel interior is not very new and the corridors rather dark and a depressing green colour.

Our double room was far too small for two people with luggage. It would better suit a single traveller or businessman. The double bed was firm and comfortable, but squeezed right against the wall so that one person had to climb in first and then had no bedside table. There was a well-equipped but quite small bathroom, with an unfortunate step up into it. There was a small refrigerator. The furniture was small, modern and compactly arranged. Presumably because the rooms are small, the pants presses are in a common area in the hall and are available on a self-serve basis.

The staff on check in were helpful and offered very hot oshibori on arrival. However, the map and information given out at the desk were not very helpful in getting a feel for the layout of the town. Considering that Hachinohe is the terminus of the northern Shinkansen line, as well as a major port, better city information should be available.

There are two restaurants, a Japanese restaurant on the 2nd floor (possibly not part of the hotel) and a western restaurant on the top floor. We had supper in the unpretentious Japanese restaurant. The tempura was indifferent, certainly not heavenly. The restaurant emphasizes its selection of sakes, but also serves good Yebitsu draft beer. The restaurant also emphasizes its local squid dishes, but we didn’t try them.

Breakfast was a Viking (buffet) in the western restaurant and was one of the better breakfasts on our trip. This could either be had for ¥1,000 or included in the room package. It was good value. The Japanese choices were more satisfying than the western. There were some local dishes, such as their advertised miso soup with many different vegetables and tofu in it, and particularly good, quite light, broiled fish. We were here introduced to the superb Aomori apple juice - the prefecture is famous for its apples.
