Great location! If you do not drive and rent a car in Ishigaki, stay in Cucule would be a wise option. The bus terminal is just around the corner and the pier is within 10 mins walk, so it is easy to take public transport. There are also plenty of restaurant choices around the hotel.

It is not a big hotel but the location is perfect. Surrounding with a lot of restaurants and close to the ferry. Staff are friendly and helpful. Various choice in breakfast. They have drying machine for your wetsuit and scuba equipment. Also bicycle for guests.

We booked 3 rooms as we had family arriving from Tokyo before going to Johama island the next day. This is a small hotel, ideally situated next to the port and the bus station. Reception was fairly quick and easy. The rooms were compact but fine, with two single beds and LCD TV. Ishigaki is a quiet place so you...

After my two-day stay at the hotel, I'd say it's pretty amazing to be able to walk from the hotel to the pier (around 5 minutes). Why? Mainly because when you're in Ishigaki, you probably would look forward to several trips to the outlying islands (e.g. Iriomote Islands, Taketomi islands) and of course a few more water activities (snorkeling at...

This hotel is quite a little gem. It's clean, new, and the staff are courteous. It's centrally located downtown right next to restaurants, markets, and the ferries. The morning complementary breakfast was convenient and delicious. I would recommend this hotel.

(English follows) オンラインで高評価のこちらのお宿に決めました。結果、期待しすぎてしまったかもしれませんが、全体的には満足です。リノベーションをされているのか、建物自体は古くお部屋のインテリアは新しめです。ただ「玉ねぎの皮」と言わんばかりの薄い壁のせいで、廊下やお隣の音が筒抜けでした。もともとの造りなので仕方がないと思います。ゴールデンウィーク中の滞在でございましたので、少々高めのプライスでしたが、立地が素晴らしく(バスターミナル 徒歩1分、離島ターミナル 徒歩2分)、レンタカーを選択しなかった私たちには大変助かりました。スタッフの方も感じがよかったです。ありがとうございました! We stayed here for two nights because of all the good online reviews that we came across. The building was old but the interior has been refurbished. We thought that the stay was quite comfortable except the extremely thin "onion skin"-like walls (We could hear almost everything from people's footsteps in the hallway or stairway...

Cucule is a standard hotel located right beside the bus station, and in the middle of the city. The staff is nice, rooms are pretty small but normal for a japanese hotel, and they provide free wifi. The highlight is the breakfast, with both japanese and western style, yogurt, fruits, cereals, bread, croissant, eggs, ham, and several local food. Should...

Good value, centrally located. The port is a couple minutes by foot. Breakfast is pretty good considering the size of the hotel and staff are very nice. bed is a real double and not a semi-double as is the case often in Japan. It's not fancy, but it is a comfortable clean base to explore ishigaki.

We were not impressed. Stuffy room, little personality and we had a Karaoke joint next to our window. Location is conveniently close to the port, but on a bigger, relatively busy street. Beautiful beaches are all relatively far away. The other islands offer a lot better places to stay.

When looking for places to stay in Ishigaki we wanted to be close to the port to enable easy exploration of other neighbouring islands. Other websites said this hotel was fully booked, but when we emailed them directly there was space. The rooms are clean and minimal, but with enough amenities to get by. The breakfast was great, lots of...
