Recent guest reviews
This is a high class hotel located right at the train station. Best part of stay was the selection of food at the department store next door. Their food department is huge. The hotel is also located in the center of town so we walked everywhere. Rooms are huge even by American standards and very comfortably/ tastefully decorated. Staff was courteous and made check in/ out a breeze. There are also numerous convenience stores and restaurants within walking distance.
Room was pretty small but comfortable. Very good breakfast with a wide selection, good WiFi. Excellent location right at the station, next to many shops. Very small bathroom unit. Not too much place for luggage.
If you travel to Shizuoka Japan to visit the annual Hobby Show this is the hotel you want to stay in. Right next door to the train station-you just literally walk out of the station and into your hotel. Transport to the show is easy - by bus or by taxi, I used taxi it coast around 1000 yen depending on traffic. The hotel is clean modern and good priced I got a corporate price of 17,884 per night B&B the room is good size and has all you need. The only one problem I encountered was that on arrival 10pm I asked if they have room service and the reply I got was no. But don't worry there is plenty of food places next door at the train station.
The hotel is a typical City hotel, the standard comparable to Hilton. It is clean, very friendly and offers a good choice of national and international breakfast. The rooms are small, but offer the comfort you need when you are on a business trip where you use the room just for a few hours of sleep and a you wanna have a clean bathroom. There is also a bar with an acceptable choice of drinks. We also had dinner in one of the restaurants and enjoyed it very much.
The hotel was in a great location to be able to shop or find transportation to another area. The hotel staff was very clean and the staff was very friendly! I would stay at this hotel again and recommend it to anyone.
I have stayed here both times I have visited Japan. It is great value with comfortable rooms.... The best beds of the hotels ice stayed in. It's clean and The staff were always polite and helpful. It is in a great location, right outside the rail station, and local bus station. And the main coach station is only a few minutes walk. There are plenty of department to stores and an amazing food court next door. There are plenty of restaurants within a few minutes walk and is a good location for sightseeing Shizuoka. Breakfast offers lots of choice, from traditional Japanese, plus continental, hot and cold options, pastries etc. I would definitely stay again and would recommend it to others.
This hotel - bang on Shin-Shizuoka station is a great stay if you have the JR Pass. Just hop on to the bullet trains and enjoy seeing different places. Come back at night by 11 pm. No problem. Distance from Shizuoka :- Tokyo 1 hour, Kyoto 1 hour, Osaka 2.5 hours - Himeji another 15 mnts. down the line. The staff very helpful, rooms are neat n clean. Only the breakfast menu is a big no-no!
Good points: This is the second time I stayed at Associa Shizuoka and I would definitely recommend this hotel specially if you book well in advance as I did. This way you can pay less for the room chosen. - My room was a standard single and I was expecting it could be a little bigger but it was ok. - You will receive a key to go to your room and without it you can't have access to your floor, because you will have to "touch" it in the elevator to have access to your floor. - The location is wonderful basically within the station where you can find many restaurants and convenience stores. Bad points: The breakfast was extremely overpriced and it wasn't that good. Few options to choose from and indeed for less than half of the price I could have a better breakfast in the restaurant outside the hotel. Don't recommend it.
Stayed a night during a quick visit to one of the factories in Shizuoka. Location is excellent, next to the JR station and with food and etc around. Was told is green tea season and Shizuoka has one of the best if not the best green tea in Japan. Bought a few. Room is decent, sufficient size for 1 or max 2. Breakfast was the usual spread and again nothing spectacular. Didn't stay long enough explore outside, only in and out within 12 hours. Had a good dinner within walking distance but can't remember the name.
Hotel is clean and comfortable. Within 1 minute walk of Shizuoka JR station for local and shinkansen trains. Bar on 15th floor has nice views. Buffet breakfast gave a good selection of food both Western and Japanese. Reception staff very helpful.
