A little dated and old but had a bed, wifi and air conditioning so I can't complain. It had the most interesting bedside table/radio/light switch device. Elevators were slow and very crowded since the hotel had many floors. Breakfast buffet was good. Walking distance from train station.
Booked here by the company (Australian) that we booked our Japanese excursion with. This hotel is good for what it is but when you are paying good bucks as part of the tour. When you are travelling one thing that is important is a room safe. None here. The place was quite clean and the staff were very friendly. I can't get used to a 3p.m check in and most places make sure that you wait until three. Breakfast was only reasonable and the tables were set up to make really long benches. Took me back to the dining hall at boarding school. A huge redeeming factor is just outside, if you veer to the left there dozens of those small restaurants where you sit at the little bar and watch the chef. We ate in that area both nights that we were there and had a ball of a time with the locals as well as great food.
The hotel is nice with friendly helpful staff. It is also in a good location close to train station. Bar staff was nice and helped recommend local sake to try and we where not disappointed. The room we were in was nice with a huge bed. i would gladly stay here again if i where to ever go back to Hiroshima which is a lovely city and worth the trip.
We were looking for a hotel that was close to the Shinkasen Railway, as we were coming from Tokyo. Wanted to be able to walk to the Hotel and walk the city and environs. The hotel is about 2-3 minutes from the main train station, so it was perfect for our needs. Our room was a studio and we were happy there. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was extra, but we wanted to eat out and walk the city, and taste the culture, so we did not eat at the hotel, either morning or evening. Very happy and would stay here again.
The only good thing about the hotel was its proximity to 7 Eleven stores and the beautiful Shukkeien garden. And the only "new" thing in the hotel was in its name. The walls in my room were beat up. And the bathroom threshhold was missing paint. The AC didn't work (or management didn't turn it on), which made the room uncomfortable. Opening the window meant a lot of noise from trains and trolleys. Breakfast was good. One of the three days there I was able to get a banana. Breakfast was often crowded due to the many tour groups booked in the hotel.
Let me start by saying that my husband and I DID NOT choose this hotel. It was automatically included in a package we purchased from Viator for a 3 day trip to Kyoto and Hiroshima. This hotel is so old (like from the 80s/90s old) and though I'm sure it's clean, everything didn't look clean just because the decor and equipment are so dated. The bathroom, however, is a different story. It's small and cramped. It had this terrible smell that emanated from the toilet. I showered with my sandals on actually. The one positive is that the staff is very friendly but we'd never go back to this hotel again.
I chose this hotel since it was within walking distance from the Hiroshima train station. Check-in was easy and they gave me a room on the 12th floor. Pluses included a nicely lit bedroom area, Wi-Fi was free, and it was clean. Minuses included a dimly lit bathroom, not enough outlets, and no in-room safe. The room was larger than I thought it would be and the bathroom was your typical small size. After a hot day, it was nice to come back and take a shower and relax.
We are so very pleased with the Hotel New Heridon. It's located just a few minutes walk from the train station but that is not the only reason we like it so much: friendly & professional staff dressed impeccably; our room is spotless; the sheets are crispy fresh👍🏻; the breakfast buffet is delicious! I would go back in a "heartbeat."
This hotel has a great location within walking distance of the train station, many stores, restaurants and entertainment centres - including slot machines. It is a 13-storey hotel, and doesn't mind admitting that on the elevator display. Of course, with it being close to the rail station, you can expect that if you keep your window open at night, (almost a must in warm, humid weather) you will hear the trains moving. A streetcar line runs between the hotel area and the large covered market. The room provides all the usual and necessary conveniences with two wide single beds that are very comfortable. As had become expected in |Japan, the pillows were textured, with one side being hard, and the other being very hard. The bed linen was excellent, and the towels and facecloths were good, but not plush. The usual amenities were available - a tea station with several options, toothbrush, hair brush, disposable razor, kimonos and slippers, hair dryer, shoe horn, clothes brush, iron board, shoe shine cloth, telephone, and radio built right into the night stand. A small fridge was provided, and was situated in the ante-room where there was also good closet space. There was a flat-screen TV, but we had no English channels to watch. Wi-Fi was available and free. There was excellent shower pressure. As usual, the toilet had the bidet and washing options with heated seat. The taps on the sink worked backwards, so had to be pushed up to turn off. We thought that the shower tiles could use a good scrubbing, as you may see in the picture. Otherwise, the room was well-appointed. Our biggest complaint was the lack of room temperature control. A room sign stipulates that they manage the temperature. Upon check-in, we were required to show our passport, and they took a copy. As well, we had to fill out a form, though we were part of a tour group. The hotel has breakfast provided - Western buffet (Flower) on the first floor, and Japanese options (Kasuga) on the second floor. There is also a dining room on the main floor by the reception area, as well as a variety of snack and souvenir items for sale. The hotel is a big supporter of the Hiroshima Carps, as there was an endless variety of Carp items for sale, great marketing for the local baseball team that has been on a winning streak (11 straight!).
Just a few blocks from the train station and right along the river, this hotel is affordable, clean and comfortable. The rooms themselves are rather old-school but that's part of the charm. This hotel is very suitable for families. We had 4 adults and 4 children and we easily fit into two rooms. The staff was easy and accommodating. Be aware that you will hear the trains around 4:00 am but it isn't overwhelming.
