Holiday Inn ANA Kanazawa Sky3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This hotel is about a 8 minute walk from the train station. It's conveniently located with easy reach to Omicho Market, shops and restaurants. We didn't find it difficult to find as the entrance was well signposted with instructions to go to the 16th floor for main reception. We booked a room for 4 and we found only three beds when we arrived. The staff were very quick to respond to our request for another bed and this did squeeze in to our spacious room. The bathrooms do need refurbishment. Our toilet seat was broken and the shower was very basic. The views of Kanazawa were great and we could see across the city. Overall it was a good location but not the best hotel we stayed in whilst in Japan. The staff were responsive though and we appreciated that.
We visited the castle and were looking for a place to stay. We knew the brand so investigated. From the outside we were confused but we finally found the entrance and felt that this place is hiding.... So we parked the car, went in and up to the 16th floor and WOW! From the check-in with Yoko - who is an absolute STAR at reception, to the room and breakfast we all thoroughly enjoyed the time there (although very short) and the hospitality from all the staff we encountered. The room was fabulous on the 15th floor with extremely comfortable bedding, a spacious bathroom with seperate toilet and washroom. My wife even stated that I didn't snore despite being extremely tired from the 1AM start in the day driving from Tokyo! Parking was easy and secure with covered access all the way through. Special note on parking, go up to the 3rd or 4th floor as the parking spaces are purposely double width! Other than that, the food was great for breakfast and the whole place was so comfortable! We will definitely be back, thank you.
Hard to believe hotel have such bad house keeping. Much more improvement are needed. Specially with house keeping. Very disappointed with the name called Holiday Inn or ANA... Toilet have this sour smell couldn't get rid of. Even sprayed a bottle of deodorant spray and turned on air purifier still doesn't work. Bathroom can see hairs everywhere even on the wall... Worst hotel I've been stayed.
This hotel has a lovely reception with very helpful staff. But you can't hide behind staff when there are problems with the rooms where you sleep. We had a large room with 2 tiny bathrooms each with its own problem. One the floor flooded if you filled the sink with water, the other also had more minor plumbing issues with old fittings which are in need of an update. The hotel pushes the breakfasts which are huge, so if eating is what you're into - this hotel is for you. Otherwise, for your money I'd try another. The cleaning was not up to scratch either, a first for Japan. Kanazawa is a lovely city to visit with gorgeous gardens, castle, fish market and amazing railway station. There is plenty to choose from.
This hotel have family size room, clean, spacious, comfortable, just the roof is slightly short but overall still good place to stay. Great variety foods on buffet breakfast with good city view. It is 15mins walk from kanazawa station. Good and polite staffs for check in and check out.
Comfortable but small room, great plumbing, Very nice breakfast buffet with lots of choices for western tastes. Good location for seeing the sights. Staff spoke some English and were helpful. Great views from the lobby and restaurant.
It is not easy to find reasonably priced quality hotels in Japan. Somewhat higher range in general even considering the expensive living expense in Japan. Especially in spring. Kanazawa is not a big city, but sizable. As such, ANA Sky is well priced. Kenrokuen is within walking distance. Omi-Cho fish market is around the corner. The reception at 16th floor has a nice view of the city. Breakfast buffet is fresh and diverse. Japanese omelette needs a brave mind to cut and swallow as it is too perfect. Nice ijakawa restaurants are nearby. One recent trend is foreign patrons who cannot speak Japanese flock together at a couple of restaurants with English menu. They do not overcharge unlike some Chinese restaurants in China. Nonetheless, the price tends to be a little bit different.
The rooms are fine; its a nice surprise since the entrance from the main street is a bit bizzar. the breakfast is terrific we've enjoied it very much. the location could be better but its in the center of town,
The Kanazawa Sky Holiday Inn is located just across the street from Omi-cho Market on the upper floors over the Meitetsu-M'za department store. Bus lines run right outside the door and the train station is a 15-20 minute walk away. You can walk to Kenrokuen Gardens as well as the Kanazawa Castle, both of which are prime spots for cherry blossom viewing. Or you can walk to the Ando River where locals go for their hanami. Or walk to the gold leaf museum. Kanazawa is an easy city to walk and the ANA Holiday Inn is central to all the sights. To top it off, the hotel serves a fantastic breakfast buffet, with ultra-fresh sashimi and lots of other goodies. Stick to the Japanese breakfast items for an authentic flavor. In the basement of the department store, you will find all kinds of groceries as well as prepared foods, omiyage, and sit down restaurants. Book the Japanese Suite in the hotel for a memorable stay.
This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The staff, amenities, views and location could not have been better. I was here for three nights and the manager of the front office, Mr. Yujiro Minami, and the rest of the hotel staff from the moment I checked in saw to it that my stay was as comfortable as could be. The room was amazing - a corner suite with windows on both sides with a view of the mountains. The layout of the room made you feel like it was more of your own private apartment than an impersonal hotel room. The hotel is situated on the upper floors of a commercial building. The Omicho fish market is just (literally) across the street, and it is an easy walk to the castle and Kenrokuen gardens. The room was so inviting that I was seriously tempted to extend my stay - but time would just not allow (this visit). I will soon be back though! Mr. Yujiro Minami and his staff could not have been more kind, considerate, respectful and mindful of their guests needs and wants.. eager and willing to assist in any way.
