Stayed for just the one night here. Was a little confusing where we had to go at first but basically this place is a government building and the top few floors are hotel rooms.

My wife and I booked this hotel online. The location is a little difficult to get to from the train station with luggage (take a tram, then walk 500 meters).

For the price of the room and quality it's a great deal and close to the the Hiroshima Memorial. The front desk people are great and speak English. The hotel closes at 1 am so can't stay out late, and the check in is from 3pm.

We didn't know what to expect before arriving but were pleased with what we found. Our family of four stayed in what seemed like a traditional Japanese room.

We booked the family room for four and paid only JPY 11200 per night.
