Note that the hotel looks as if it were still undergoing repairs for damage caused by the earthquake in mid 2016. Noise was limited. Otherwise good location with loads of shopping nearby and 5 mins to castle which was alas still very much damaged. Repairs to the castle could take years. Breakfast was an option of two Western sets or...

The castle is just right in front of my eyes! Though the hotel is a bit old (already 50 years) but it is pretty well maintained with modern decoration. The breakfast is good. You get to choose between japanese or western and you are being served so that there is no hustle and bustle of buffet breakfast.

The location is good just right opposite the castle room is small but clean services was rather disappointing for Japanese standard, I travel around Kyushu area before reaching Kumamoto, was used to the friendliness and politeness of Japanese but here I encounter an impatient waiter while ordering breakfast perhaps is the language barrier as I don't speak Japanese. Overall the...

The only positive things is the castle view from our room, the attentive staff and central location. It seems like the hotel hasn't been refurnished since its creation. Centrally located near shopping streets and mall and the castle. Stay there for one night but not more.

This is an affordable hotel located perfectly in front of the Kumamoto Castle. Although it is a bit dated, it's very clean, neat and comfort. The shopping area and department stores are just 5 min walk from the hotel. Also, the center of night life in Kumamoto with many restaurants and bars are 5-7 min walk. I recommend this hotel...

The location is excellent in front of the Kumamoto Castle. Though the hotel is not modern designed or renovatod, it's very clean, tidy, neat and comfort! Most of the staff couldn't speak perfect English, but they will try their best to comunicate with you and to understand your needs. In 5 min walking distance will be the shopping area, department...

We enjoyed this hotel. By Japanese standards the room was large and very comfortable. The staff is very friendly and very attentive. The hotel is at a great location and Kumamoto castle is very nearby.

I will be staying at "Kumamoto Hotel Castle" by tomorrow. You might say, why would you say they have excellent service even before you staying in their hotel.
