Chisun Hotel Hiroshima

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice stuff also well equipped clean rooms. Close the Peace park, nice place for walk around the river. Recommended book with breakfast, great and tastefull. You can also left the baggage there after checkout, if you have another trip around.

The location is ideal both near the entertainment district and train station. It is also near a lot of the local sights such as peace park and castle. Breakfast was a bit ropey and we were quite ill, we thought it might have been the eggs, they looked cooked but very oily so maybe didnt agree. The hotel is clean and offers everything you need. It is quite loud at night but they are in the process of upgrading windows, hooefully to double glaze to rectify this.

If you are looking for a reasonable hotel and can deal with the rooms being smaller, the Chisun is located in a really choice place to reach a variety of restaurants, parks, and sites. The shinkansen and subway station is only a 15 minute walk from the hotel. Malls and shopping centers are close. Restaurant choices are great.

Stayed here for one night whilst visiting hiroshima. I had a single room and it was a decent size by japanese standards. It has all the amenities i.e tv, hairdryer, slippers, Pyjamas, fridge, bathroom products. Anything else can be collected from reception for free. The bed was comfortable. The location of the hotel was great, it was roughly a 15 min walk from hiroshima station. Breakfast was good too, western and japanese breakfast was available. Being a vegetarian, i had breads, cereals and fruit on offer in addition to juices and hot drinks. This was good enough for me. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming and could speak decent english. My room was on the 10th floor but it had a rubbish view, mainly facing the back of other buildings so could only see machinery. From the hotel it was easy to walk to all the sights of hiroshima.

Booked a economy double bed room and as in most Japanese hotels small even by our petite Asian sizes. That said, bed was comfortable, amenities plentiful at lobby, staff friendly and spoke decent English. Tried the breakfast one morning - adequate altho a tad expensive. Location is perfect even for walking, or like us, purchase the Hiroshima tourist pass - then hopping on/off the trams is a breeze as the tram stop is just opposite the hotel. If you have large suitcases or a group of 2-4 taking a taxi from the JR train station is a good alternative - hotel less than 10mins away (pending traffic) and cost not more than ¥1000. Convenience store right next door to hotel and no lack of eating options within walking distance. Bus centre for all side trips out of the city located at Sogo building , less than 15mins walk or less than 5mins by tram.

Very nicely looking hotel. Staff speaks decent english (at least from my experience). The locations is quite good and very close to tram and bus stops. Hotel is located about 10/15 min from the train station. Rooms are quite small but thats the Japanese standard i think :)

Probably the best and most convenient hotel in Hiroshima. All trams (streetcars) from the train station stop at Kanayama-cho. Step off the tram and the hotel entrance is in front of you. If you have heavy/awkward luggage, take the "Green Mover", the floor level is the same as the stop level - no lifting bags. All city travel is Y180 (A$2.00), one or all stops, pay as you leave the tram. Once in the Chisun, Akiko and the team will make you feel really welcome. Rooms are small but clean and air-conditioned. Breakfast is available but expensive. A small coffee shop diagonally across the main road has delicious cinnamon toast!!! From the tram stop (hotel) you can access just about all Hiroshima (Atomic dome, etc). The tram fare to the Port is extra if you want to got to Kure, etc. Hiroshima Castle from the main intersection involves a fair walk (or taxi).

Straight to the point: THE GOOD Superb location. Great, welcoming reception staff. Modern looking. Good and cheap car parking service. Quirky "self-service bar" of room condiments and sweets. Good self-serve laundry with free detergent. THE BAD The smallest room I've ever seen! 6 square meters with a 2 square meter bathroom. 2 of you trip / climb over each other moving about. Double bed is a 1.1/2 single bed. Be prepared to be really cozy! Windows don't open so very stuffy. Found a pair of soiled ladies knickers under the bed! CONCLUSION I am awarding this hotel a "3". It would be perfect for a single traveller and the location is perfect. The price is great too for a City-centre hotel and the staff are polite and courteous. I guess they should just seriously consider knocking 2 rooms into 1 but even then they would be small! Good car parking facilities. Modern-looking. Quirky way of self-serving room freebies like coffee, sweets and even washing detergent if using laundry.

I must admit that my experience at Chisun was pretty average. It definitely wasn't bad, but nor was it great. I should begin by saying that the location is good. The hotel is right opposite a tram station with only three stops from Hiroshima station and a few more to Hondori (popular nightlife area). It's a couple of km's walk to Peace Park and there is a 7-11 / Family Mart in near vicinity. The check-in girl was friendly and helpful, she did her best to give me a high floor (8 or 11) and I was soon in my room. I had taken my bike with me and luckily the hall in the room was wide enough to have the (clean!) cycle there. The room itself was OK. Good sized bed with the standard Japanese clock/light controls built in. The bathroom was also a typical cramped Japanese shower cabin that shared a single tap for both the shower head and the and sink. Not really a problem except if you wanted cold water you had to lose your shower warm setting (and vice-versa). The WiFi was surprisingly good, albeit not overly secure (with the SSID being the same as the password). But, there was no annoying login that I recall, and if there was, it didn't reset every 24 hours like it does in most hotels. View from the room decent (I have read other reviewers who have had views of concrete walls). Bed was comfortable. Writing desk was functional, though quite close to the bed. One should leave their key at the front desk when they leave in the morning (to facilitate cleaning). No safety deposit box. Very limited hygiene accessories in the bathroom (but apparently you can get a more comprehensive selection from reception). Two elevators, note that these have a very strong and harsh light and full size mirror that does not paint one in a complimentary light. Perhaps these are honest mirrors? Either way, I didn't like the elevators, functional as they were. Now onto the staff. Both the check-in and check-out girls were good. The breakfast staff were friendly. The other reception staff I met were cold and indifferent, when I said hello to them coming and going (especially the night staff) they barely looked up or acknowledged me. Breakfast .. costs 1200yen per day. It's below average in my opinion. Some of the fish dishes were OK. The scrambled eggs were revolting. There is some yoghurt, cereal and fruit salad (appreciated) and a few fried things that were not kept warm. Sausages were OK. Coffee was passable the first day, weak the second.

Small but well equipped rooms. Buffet breakfast with a choice of Japanese and European dishes. It's also a convenient location for a day trip by ferry to Miyajima with the world renown Red Tori and the Itsukushima Shrine. Nice coastline.
