Getting from Hiroshima station to the hotel is easy – it is just outside Kanayama-cho tram station (about four stops away using tram lines 1, 2 or 6). Check in was swift and courteous. There are many items available for free in the reception area such as toiletries, coffee, tea, sweets, etc. You can also borrow many additional electrical items for your room. The room was compact, like all Japanese hotels, but there is just enough space to place a suitcase on a collapsible stand. The single bed was wider and longer than western ones. There is a fridge and kettle, as well as television and desk/chair. Wifi in the room is very good. The bed was comfortable as was the duvet, and the air conditioning is good. There was no wardrobe – just four coat hangers on the wall. Breakfast wasn’t included in my tariff, but there are so many places where you can eat, and plenty of convenience stores (one next door!) to buy fruit, yogurts, etc to stock the fridge with breakfast items. The bathroom is typically Japanese – very small. The bath is small but deep, and there is every toiletry you could possibly need in there (more in reception as mentioned earlier). It was also very quiet so great for a good night’s sleep. All historical monuments are about 15 minutes away by foot, although there is the tram if you don’t want to walk. I considered it to be a good base from which to explore Hiroshima.
We booked this hotel the day before arrival, because its location and the price offered. It proved to be a good choice. The rooms are small, yes, but clean and a good airco. The hotel is actually at the street parallel to the main street, there is a long corridor to the desk. It is being renovated, but we didn't notice anything, except the scaffolding. We liked the fact that you could select your own amenities, so you don't have all these small items cluttering your bath room. Just take what you need. Staff was very friendly and fast. The hotel is close to the three bus lines exploited by JR, and these busses start at the side of the shinkansen (backside). The tramway and buses are on the other side of the station. Right in front of the hotel is also a tramstop, with the trams sometimes queueing up.
My two adult kids and I spent two nights at the Chisun last week. We managed to get three single rooms right next to each other on the 7th floor for ~$60/night each. Yes, these rooms were small (what seemed to be about 100 square feet not including the 6x6’ bathroom) and have no view whatsoever, but they are spotless and well-designed. The bed was actually a double bed that can easily sleep two adults. The bathroom was a hoot in that the sink faucet also controlled the shower. But the hotel had many very nice features: free amenities (hair brushes, laundry detergent, etc.) in the lobby, two washing machines and dryers on the 3rd floor, and an absolutely wonderful and helpful staff. The hotel is in a great location: 50 feet from a tram stop that was three stops from the train station and seven stops from the Peace Museum. The hotel is also walking distance from many restaurants and shopping areas and malls (Parco). Would not hesitate to stay here again – this hotel is perfect or those who just want a place to sleep and shower before heading out for their day.
Stayed here for two nights with family and friends. We had executive twin which was not very large at all, nor are single rooms but all good enough and whilst bathrooms are compact, they are clean and do the job. Quite well situated, walkable from station though if have suitcases buses or taxi would be recommended. We hoped to try restaurant for dinner as website seemed to indicate this, but was closed by dinner time. Some local restaurants all walkable though instead. Handy general store next door. We also booked a massage and this was very good and reasonable price. Walkable to peace park, half hour and castle.
The hotel is just infront of the tram stop, so it is very convinient to get around in the city. The hotel is small, and the rooms a very small, but typical Japanese standard sizes, there is everything you need. The breakfast buffet has everything, and the hotel staff is so nice and helpful, there is not a finger to put on annything, except that my room window was into the wall to the building next door, so be aware to request a room with a view.
The drug store and family mart just next to the hotel, also have bus station in front of the hotel. The room is very clean and nice, we have the king size bed, which is very good. The room is normal size. But as a group of four, we ordered two rooms, they gave us two rooms in different level is not very nice. Also, the hotel cannot provide car park, we need to find a car park nearby.
The rooms are good, we had a king size bad which is hard to get in Japan and was a real treat. The room wasn't very big but not to small either. Don't get your hopes up over breakfast, its not that good... not enough of western selection and the food just didn't taste very good.
We stayed at Chisun Hotel during our visit to the wonderful city of Hiroshima. This hotel was perfectly located in the city with the tram lines available almost directly outside - making transit around the city very easy. The rooms were clean and tidy, and the staff were very friendly and helpful despite the language barriers. And the price offered to us was extremely affordable for what it was. A recommended hotel for a short stay!
We stayed at the Chisun hotel for two nights in April 2017. We picked the hotel as it was only £10 more than a hostel, and was just a short 15 minute walk from the station (there are buses and trams which also stop right in front of the hotel from the station). The location is also convenient for the Peace Memorial Park/A Bomb Dome and Hondori shopping area with lots of cafes and restaurants. We checked in around 5pm and our room was ready. The staff had very good English and were very helpful. The room wasn't large, being an economy double, but there was enough space for the two of us and our two suitcases. The bathroom was tiny, the tap for the sink was the same one used for the bath, however this was fine for us as we weren't in the room very much anyway. The bed is up against a wall, so if there's two of you, one will be sleeping next to it, but this was common in Japanese hotels we stayed in. The room was clean, had a fridge and you could select various amenities free of charge in reception (e.g. toothbrushes, cloths etc). There was shower gel, shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom. We opted to pay the 1,100 JPY for the breakfast as it was convenient for us. The buffet had limited Western options, but again sausages, eggs and toast/pastries were available. Japanese options weren't as well labelled as in other places we stayed, and there was a fair amount of fish on offer. The buffet was continually replenished throughout breakfast, so plenty to choose from.
Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It can be reached in 20 minutes walk from the JR station or by tram in 10 mins, which stops right outside the door. Check in was quick and easy. Photocopies of passports taken. The room has all the amenities with wi-fi free. Tea and coffee making facilities provided. There is a facilities cupboard in the lobby and guests can help themselves to things like tea bags, sweets, hair brushes, razors, shower caps etc. The hotel has vending machines on several floors, and a couple of washing machines and tumble driers for guests to use. Rooms have a fridge, and you can borrow crockery and cutlery from reception for free. The hotel is 5 mins walk from the shops and eateries, and 15 mins from the A Bomb Dome and Peace Garden, and the Museum. There are a couple of convenience shops within 2 mins walk of the hotel. A good hotel with lovely helpful and friendly staff.
