The hotel is located in the center of Kumamoto. Staff is friendly and tries to help you. But still it is below my expectations: When I checked in, the room was very smelly. They tried to change but the other room was the same. It smelled like smoke, really not pleasant. The whole procedure took ages. They did not do...

This is an ok hotel but unfortunately our travel agent booked single beds which are not great. There are double rooms available. With two travellers no room for two suitcases. Bathroom ok but only one towel each. There is no safe. The lifts are just ok. Breakfast is ok but nothing special. If this hotel is #1 in Kumamoto I...

Rated as best hotel in Kumamoto but nothing special. Rooms adequate, food good rather than excellent. Staff friendly. Good central location. One of those hotels that you will not remember a month after you have stayed there.

The bed was comfortable. The staffs were friendly and helpful. The location is convenient with a few hundred meters to Kumamoto Castle. You can also roam in the street at night for shopping or restaurants. I could see the castle from my room (pictures attached)

Large comfortable rooms, very nice and helpful staff, and good location close to the castle and the city shopping streets. The wifi is free, fast and reliable and there are a lot of food options within walking distance. Great stay !

We only stayed in Kumamoto for 1 night and have chosen this hotel as it's conveniently located opposite to department stores and is within walking distance to the Kumamoto Castle (too bad though it was closed for maintenance after the earthquake in 2016). Rooms are large (love the view of our room with the castle) and staff are friendly and...

Excellent Location! Just next to the shopping streets Kamitori, and Shimotori is just across the street. Many Restaurant choices and there are a few department stores nearby, and kids can visit the Kumamon Square. Its also walking distance to Kumamoto Castle and Sakuranobaba-Josaien. Our Twin room was a good size with seating area; very clean with all necessary amenities. Check-in...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Nikko in Kumamoto. The hotel is right in the centre of town, close to the covered shopping arcades and some wonderful restaurants. If you need to get to the railway station then the city tram stop is also close by. The rooms in the hotel were very comfortable, quiet and clean, as well...

Very comfortable and clean with free wifi. Great location. Several rooms have a view of the castle. Parking is not free but there's enough of it. A 7-11 and streetcar immediately adjacent. Great customer service.
