We stayed in a Triple accommodation and had very reasonable rates for a Monday and Tuesday (note the cost for Monday had the lower weekend rate, a pleasant surprise). As previous reviews mentioned the view of Fukuyama Castle was impressive. We received a room next to the elevators as requested. There are hot drinks and juices available in the lobby... More

The hotel is right next to the train station. Just 20min train ride from Onomichi where we ended our Shimanami Kaido bike trip. All hotels in Onomichi were booked.

This hotel was less than one minute from the station with a lovely view of the castle. We used this as a base to visit Hiroshima and Miyajima but also took in some local attractions. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and as described on the web.

Our room overlooks the Fukuyama Castle on the right and the Train Station on the left which makes sightseeing and moving around a breeze. Everything you might need is a stone's throw away - food, shopping and attractions. The room is basic but pretty spacious (for Japan's standards) and very comfortable. The bed is full sized unlike the others in... More

Let me be honest: I stayed in Fukuyama because Hiroshima was booked solid. I had a change in travel plans 2 days before, and suddenly there I was, trying to wedge myself into Hiroshima on a Saturday night. Nothing left but the $200 plus rooms or hostels or capsules. So, since I was traveling via JR Pass, Fukuyama - the... More

It is important to rate the hotel in the context of what it is. In my view, it is clearly a very good budget hotel. Excellent location (next to the station and castle), good sized rooms for a budget hotel of about 22sqm, excellent service, spotless room, comfy bed, free wifi, free bottled water, free rooftop onsen and included buffet...

Very average hotel. I can't see what people are raving about! The room pictures online are utterly misleading. The rooms are minute and the beds tiny - you have to climb over the other person to get into bed!
