I stayed at this hotel over a long weekend in Japan. The first thing that struck me was how expensive it was. My other half booked this place and in her defence, the choice wasn't that big being a long weekend and shes none the wiser of how things work with regards to pricing in Japan. ¥30,000 for 2 people...

As stayed in previous review on this hotel I jave been unhappy in the past because the charged 1000 yen for room card that was lost. Having said this i still go nack because it is clean, cheap, modern, and close to the train station. Most of the staff are friendly. 700 yen breakfast is basic but not bad value.

This hotel is a short walk from Hiroshima JR station. The price is reasonable for a business hotel. We found the staff friendly and efficient. We had a comfortable twin bedded room for three nights, which was laid out in an interesting configuration allowing for a modicum of privacy to each individual. It worked well and I liked that touch,...

I love Vessel hotel! My partner and I got it for 5500 yen per night for 2 people, which was an amazing deal. The room was small (of course, it's a budget hotel in Japan), but it was clean and nice, they gave us complimentary face masks, hair treatment, and face cream samples, and we got bicycles for 3 hours...
