Quality as expected from Toyoko inn hotels. Anywhere the same quality for a reasonable price. Hotel is adjacent of the Shinkansen station in Higashi Hiroshima. Free shuttle to Saijo station. Apart from some convenience store no real dining facilities around the hotel. Hotel serves free basic evening meal like Japanese curry.
I booked this hotel through booking.com with reasonable price (about 14.668 yen for two nights). The location of this hotel is exactly in front of the Higashi-Hiroshima station (JR operating line), only about a minute walk. I didn't expect to have a reasonable space because from my previous experience, usually hotel with similar price will have such a limited place. Even more, they provides a trouser press in the room. They also provides free breakfast (japanese breakfast) and free dinner (curry rice) and it all taste good! There is also a free night gown for sleep which was sterilized everyday in a machine. There is a washing machine for 200 yen, and dryer for 100 yen per 30 minutes. Amenities were quite complete and they even provides a set of cleanser, toner, and milk lotion. I will definitely recommend this place to other traveller. Btw, Higashi-Hiroshima is just about 11 minutes to Hiroshima with train.…
The hotel is almost next door to Higashi-Hiroshima Station. We were really surprised when we arrived and were told that the hotel offers free dinner before 20:00. I don't remember when dinner time starts.Very nice. We used our JR Rail passes to travel between Higashi-Hiroshima and Hiroshima. The ride took about 11 minutes. It was really convenient, which is fortunate since Higashi-Hiroshima itself isn't all that exciting.
As other posters have noted, this place is very convenient if you have a suitable JR rail pass and want a more reasonably priced place for exploring Hiroshima. It takes 10 minutes each way on the shinkansen, but be aware that (a) commuting can get expensive if you don’t have a rail pass, (b) the service isn’t that frequent so check the times at hyperdia.com, and (c) as other posters have also noticed, you can’t come back late at night - you really need to watch the schedule for the last train. In Japan many, many hotels have “ekemae” as part of their names (“ekemae” means “in front of the railway station”), but in my more cynical moments I think “ekemae” is a vastly over-used word. Too many “ekemae” hotels are a long walk from the station. This place is the real deal, though, it truly is "ekamae." When I came out of the railway station, I looked around and saw “Toyoko Inn” in large letters on top of the building. It was a short walk to reception. I arrived at 3.20 pm but was told that check-in was only available at 4 - check in in most places in Japan are 3 pm. In fairness, I was given my room key at 3.40, so it wasn’t all that big a hardship. There’s a coin laundry on the ground floor - Y300 for the smallish washing machine, and Y100 for drying, from memory. There are reasonable costs, especially when compared to commercial coin laundries. The room was typical of a Japanese business hotel, maybe a bit bigger than average for this type of place. I made a point of requesting a non-smoking room, and that wish was granted. I couldn’t find anything on the TV besides hotel promotions, and video on demand (an extra Y500). That may be because I didn’t try figuring out the remote for long enough. As this place is a business hotel with a predominantly male clientele, I’m guessing video on demand is likely to be of the adult variety. If I had watched it, Toyoko Inns would have wanted me to feel virtuous - their advertising for video on demand states that a proportion of the proceeds goes to charitable work … I went down for breakfast when it started at 630 - it’s a serve yourself buffet where your plate doubles as your tray, and the fare is OK basic - some salad, a kind of bread, sausages, and scrambled eggs, as well as miso soup. If you can’t master scrambled egg with chop sticks, bring your own fork. I wouldn’t say that the breakfast room’s ambience at 630 am matched the meal, but it probably ran close. Don’t expect too much and you won’t be disappointed, is what I’m trying to say. Wifi worked fine in my room, not so well downstairs in reception, but amazingly was still working for me on the station platform the next morning. In fact, I later noticed that it was working at railway stations near other Toyoko Inns and I’m guessing that the one password works for every Toyoko inn. As other posters have noted, there’s not a lot going on in the neighbourhood - a handy 7/11, the railway station and not much else. I bought the makings of dinner in 7/11 and ate it in my room in the hotel. I stayed only one night - next morning I checked out and took the shinkansen into Hiroshima. Finding a coin locker for bags in big stations such as Hiroshima can be a problem, so I went in early (arriving around 740 am) and had no problem. Staying in Higashi-Hiroshima gave me a flying start - far better than travelling from Kyoto or Osaka, in my opinion. Great price, great location if you have a rail pass, and comfortable enough. I would do it again.…
Booked this hotel since we can't find anything available in Hiroshima city. Location is perfect if you go with shinkansen, only 2 mins walk to Higashi-Hiroshima st. There's 7-11 konbini next door, but nothing else exists, so unless you go with shinkansen, you're pretty much stranded at a nowhere place. It's Toyoko Inn standard, amenities provided, pajama (yukata) available, TV etc. Breakfast is good, better than most business hotel standard. Wi-Fi sucks, there was a construction work going on when we were there or something that means no Wi-Fi. Our stay was far from disappointing, except for the Wi-Fi, but nothing special from both the hotel or the location. One night stay in this hotel is good, but not more.
