Comfortable place to stay with great location to train station and bus terminal. My room was compact and clean. Laundry service available. Buffet breakfast catered for Westerners so had good mix. Friendly, professional staff. Good value for money.

Great location next to the station but definitely feels a but more "unclean" than the other hotels I've been staying in. No vending machines and TV has about 5 channels with only CNN in English. Functional, definitely not terrible but not great by any standards.

I love this hotel's location , right outside the Kanazawa station! this was perfect for us as we were exploring kanazawa mostly by train. Rooms were acceptable, comfortable and clean. The mall near the Station catered to our needs for meals through their many restaurants.

Basic, clean, tidy, busy, but very acceptable accommodation. Small rooms and bathroom but made a fine base for exploring Kanazawa. It's right by the station but about a 20 min walk to city centre. Stay here for reasonable economic accommodation.

Affordable typical Japanese hotel. Very small rooms but very function. Very courteous and attentive staff but English ability is limited. Right beside the main train station but this is not an advantage as all of the interesting sights in the city are about a 30 minute walk away. Unlike Tokyo and Kyoto, Kanazawa does not have a local train system.... More

As said in other reviews, it's a large hotel, very convenient to the train station, not so convenient for the city itself. I was here 1 night during a bike tour, we arrived by train and left on out bikes. The time we spent touring the city was by bike so there was no issue with the distance from the... More

We were warned by our travel guide that previous travelers had issues with nasty odors in rooms at this hotel. Ours smelled just fine, it was the state of the bedding that caused me concern. There were rather large stains on both beds. I took a picture on my phone and returned to Reception and reported the issue. They changed... More

I was wary of this hotel because previous TripAdvisor comments had been poor but it was way beyond my expectations and it is by no means a budget hotel. It is a large hotel with great facilities, one being that it is so close to this huge station where you can walk back and enjoy its great architecture. You do... More

I stayed two nights in Kanazawa at this hotel. The hotel is a classic Japanese business hotel. You should not bring too much luggage as you might not have enough space for it. The rooms are not the most modern style, but they are OK for the price and the bed is actually quite comfy. The WiFi worked without a... More
