Ok, I have given this Hotel a Bad review before, I stand by my words, however there are some good things about this Hotel. I have also stayed here since my bad review and have also booked again for next trip. Rooms are small, as many are in Japan, however they are clean and modern. I have only had single rooms, or triple room. The triple room was too small, and really is a double with a second bed. It had 2 single beds and a fold out one in front of the sink.
The hotel is very close to the station and the trams. As I said it is clean and pleasant. I still think that they were unreasonable to charge so much for a room key, but if you don't loose it you will be ok.

Room Tip: Don't have more than 2 in a room,

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, because staying there felt more like a short stay in a small studio apartment.
Breakfast was buffet style, a mix of Japanese and some Western dishes, not a big selection but what was there was fresh and tasty.
We didn’t have much interaction with the staff other than checking in or out but they were efficient and friendly.
We’ll stay there again, I think, should we return to Hiroshima.

Dear Gringo999,
Thank you very much for staying at Vessel Inn Hiroshima Ekimae and posting a nice compliment about our hotel on TripAdvisor. Our hotel is located in the very convenient area near JR Hiroshima Station and many sightseeing spots. Did you visit some sightseeing spots? We are glad to know you had a comfortable stay in the guest room. That guest room has more space between the beds than standard twin rooms. Therefore, guests can relax without caring each other. We serve local food and freshly baked bread for breakfast. We receive good reviews on them from our valued guests. We are delighted that you enjoyed our breakfast. We will continuously endeavor to improve our service. We look forward to seeing you in the near future.
Best regards,
Ayako Kanetsuna

I booked this hotel through trip Advisor partner Japanican and prepaid to secure a great price. It is a functional clean hotel that excels in service and most everything they offer for this price point. I liked the close location near the Hiroshima Train Station, close as in a 7 minute walk but in a quiet area and stones throw from the Zoom Zoom Mazda baseball park. My room was very nice, bed very comfortable and on the second day I slept 16 hours so that should tell you something as I had already spent in Tokyo prior and recovered from jet leg so this was just good sleep. I had breakfast on all three days I stayed which was 700Y and worth every penny. There was sausages and scrambled eggs, pastries, fruits, juices, coffee, dry cereals and many Japanese foods - all delicious and I tried everything. I liked having some fish everyday for breakfast - particular as it was smoked just like kippers. I would stay here again without hesitation particular as its 3 minutes to this very frequent trams - and all go by the stop and you can easily pull a suitcase from the train station.

Room Tip: I don't think they have a bad room and som come with a small balcony.

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 free, only 500 yen for longer than 3 hours. The breakfast buffet was delicious, and it's a 10 minute walk from the station. I would definitely stay there again my next trip to Hiroshima.

Room Tip: Reserve way in advance. Jalan net has good prices for them

Stayed here for one night in a twin room. We got the room very cheap on a special offer. We were surprised at how big the room was. It was very clean and everything looked modern and new. Staff were friendly. Location was great, easy to find, only 5 minutes from the station and a reasonable walking distance from other attractions in the area.

I think we were very lucky for the rate we got it at but if you can the rooms are great.
