Via Inn Hiroshima-Kanayamacho

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Location was a five minute walk to the trams that take you pretty much every where. It's a short walk to the major shopping district. Wifi was strong. Room was large and very clean. Liked the breakfast as well as it had a decent selection.

It has a great location in the city. The castle and the peace memorial park are 20 min walk away and the train station is 15 min walk away. So as we could access everything on foot we didn't have to spend money on public transport. In the vicinity of the hotel there are many great restaurants within 10 min walking distance. The room itself was clean and comfortable for sleeping.

We considered this hotel to be in a good location, 3 minutes from the trams, we went to an island just 15 minutes ferry ride at the end of the tram line and back by Jr train,breakfast was good,small criticism Wi fi only worked in reception, rooms clean and would recommend this hotel.

I can only say positive things about this hotel. It is very well located, only a 10 minutes walk from the Peace Memorial Park and with a tram station a few meters away. You can also reach the Hiroshima Station taking the tram and it's only 5 minutes. I stayed in a single room and I don't have any complain about the space, I think considering how hotels are in Japan my room was more than enough for one person. Bed was bigger than a normal single bed and also comfortable. If you have a laptop you can get internet in your room since there's a LAN cable in the room. Otherwise, you can use the free wifi at the lobby. Internet connection was good & fast. Room had everything you might need: hairdryer, sleepers, towels, fridge, boiler & tea, TV (only 4 japanese TV channels though...), DVD player, air conditioner, etc. Staff were very nice, maybe they didn't speak great english but they could make understand themselves. And price was very fair. I would totally recommend it!! Breakfast was not included in my rate but there is that option (for about 1000 yens), I didn't have it so I can't give an opinion about that. There is also a restaurant inside the hotel but I never ate there. If I'd have to say something negative it would be that walls are like paper so you can basically here both neighbours snoring. However, for me that was not a problem since I used my earplugs and problem solved!

This hotel is an excellent value. Blue Wave Inn Hiroshima is located roughly half-way between the Peace Park and JR station. You can either take a streetcar for 150 yen from the station, or if you have a backpack, it is an easy ramble. The hotel is a little off the main road, on one of the smaller streets to the south, just past the bridge. When I checked in, the deskclerk spoke English. The room was clean and modern, and most importantly - the bed was comfortable! I cannot stay at Toyoko or Super Hotels - their beds are much too firm for me. I had no noise problems, and everything in my room worked perfectly, including the TV, the AC, the shower, the teapot, and the LAN connection. For the money I paid (about $80) I would definitely recommend Blue Wave Inn for a solid night's sleep. An added bonus is that it is an easy, pleasant river-side stroll from the hotel to the excellent Hiroshima Museum of Contemporary Art. The only downside to this hotel was the 10 am checkout time. But perhaps if one asked in advance, one could arrange a more humane 11am checkout.

We stayed two nights at Blue Inn in Hiroshima. An advantage is the location of this hotel: just 10 minutes by foot from the dome and the memorial parc. The rooms are a bit oldfashioned and very noisy (from the streets). They have free internet on the rooms and a hot water pot with green tea. Staff is very friendly.

金曜日の深夜にチェックイン。 クレジットは専用の精算機でスピーディーに受付できました。 シングルながらベッドは広く、消臭スプレーや空気清浄機も完備。 浴槽はやや狭いですが。必要最低限のレベルで問題無し。お湯もすぐ出て来ました。 ビジネスホテルとしては、平均点をやや上回るレベルです。機会があればまた使います。


立地も良く、施設内も綺麗でした。 浴室は古くて狭いが、掃除が行き届いてるので問題なし。 繁華街から近いので、とても便利でした。 女性一人でも安心して泊まれるホテルだと思います。 朝食も美味しかったです。

シングルルームを1泊しました。 路面電車からすぐだし 飲み屋さんやコンビニ(ポプラ?)も近くとても便利です。 精算は自販機みたいなので機械でしました。 カードもちゃんと使えたのでよかったです。 1つ困ったのが 朝起きてコーヒー飲もうとしたら コーヒーの粉が部屋に置いてなくて フロントまで取りに降りなくては行けなかった事です。  フロントに電話で持ってきてもらえるか聞いたら駄目でした・・・ 飲み物飲む方は忘れず貰ってお部屋に行くことをお勧めします。 チェックアウトも機械ですぐできたし コーヒー以外は完璧でした。
