Great location for the peace memorial park but a fairly basic hotel. Clean and functional with friendly staff.

8/10 Very good

Close to everything!
The staff were friendly, helpful and happy to help. The premises were clean and tidy. What we really enjoyed was the location. It was close to local attractions. We also enjoyed the fact it was a traditional Japanese hotel.

Semi traditional hotel, close to A Bomb Dome
Overall good, staff (owner) is blunt and direct but ok. Room was good, breakfast was ok. Close to the A Bomb Dome and Peace Memorial. There is a tram line (street car) which runs close to the hotel. You can take this from JR Hiroshima Station to hotel, Yen 280 each or taxi will cost approx. Yen 850 -1000 ,

2/10 Poor

Terrible: don't go there!
The room stinks dirtiness mixed with cigarettes, although I asked for a non smoking room. The ventilation system brings the air from the other rooms and brings it there. When you open the window you ll find a wall at 20 cm in front of you. I asked to change the room they were full. The next day people were checking out so I asked again but the manager refused to make an effort. I reserved for breakfast but did not show up because I wanted to sleep more. They called me on the phone so I said thank you but I will skip it. They kept calling 3 times, i kept answering the same thing until they knocked on my door and entered the room screaming "breakfast please!". I was lying down in the tatami, shocked. It's impossible that they could be japanese. The quality of service is awful... Location is great.

4/10 Fair

sub-standard Ryokan by Japanese standard
This property includes Ikawa, Ikawa new wing, and Ikawa annex. We stayed in Annex, booked a room for family of 4. It's so tiny that it's just barely enough to lay down 3 futons for sleeping. Opened the 2 windows and staring right at neighboring building walls. It is only half a meter away, I could touch it. Room is very bare, no decoration of any kind. At room corners I could see signs of some water marks, could be moisture damage can't get out of the room. The Ryokan run by old folks, they are all right but the up-keeping of the place isn't that good. It's by far the worst Ryokan I've stayed in Japan out of 6 trips there.

4/10 Fair

Unfortunately disappointing even for the price.
Was not greeted by the staff upon arrival. Had to search around for another guest who directed me to the desk, found my key there. Difficult to find the room as it's 3 buildings. Room was smaller than expected, very dated, and the tatami was smelly (moreso than it should have been, I have stayed in many ryokans). The fridge (a pleasant suprise) was plugged in but not working and the hot water heater thing was not working. Toilets were smelly and the smell hung in the hallway too. The hallways were very cold as they leave the door roped open. I paid for a Japanese breakfast, and it was very disappointing. I have had a lot of Japanese food and this was not up to standard. If you want a Japanese experience try a set menu for lunch or dinner, and get the western breakfast at this hotel if you need to have breakfast. Good parts were the location, about a 3 minute walk from Dobashi tram/streetcar station. Also the staff when I managed to meet them were kind (although spoke almost no English, not even enough to get by really). And they let me leave my luggage there after I checked out. Honestly I feel like they didn't care about me because I was a single traveller only there for one night. Maybe it would be better in other situations. It seems like they host very big groups like schools. Maybe they get a better experience.

It's like a hostel
It seems the hotel has a foreigners bldg and domestic people's bldg. the foreigners bldg is like a hostel. If you want to experience sleeping on Tatami,this is good. But this is not like a typical Japanese room at all. Too expensive for this kind of hotel.
