About

#18 of 58 hotels in Aomori
This hotel is in downtown Aomori but also provides a gorgeous view of Mutsu Bay and the Hakkoda Mountains. Conveniently located close to JR Aomori Station, we’re just 3 minutes away by car, or 15 minutes on foot. If you’re coming by Shinkansen, whether from the north on the Hokkaido Shinkansen or the south on the Tohoku Shinkansen, you can get to our hotel from Shin-Aomori Station in 15 minutes by car. Although this hotel is in downtown Aomori, it provides an amazing view of Mutsu Bay and the Hakkoda Mountains. Our hotel has a warm, laid back atmosphere, and is located nearby both Aomori Prefectural Museum, which is housed in a repurposed building with the chic architecture of 1931, and Uto Shrine, an ancient place of worship infused with the whole history of Aomori from its beginnings up to the present day.

So often in Japan low price hotels have view only to next building in 30cm - 5m distance. Now we were lucky to have sea view and we saw also nice sunset and several boat running. Room was basic, small and clean. Everything working perfectly. But definitely worth its low price. Parking area next to hotel, but rather limited capacity. Luckily staff was - as also at reception - very helpful. Though mostly not English speaking. Their breakfast is extremely good. Huge combination from different cultures and changing a little every morning. Location is close to main attractions and numerous restaurants and bars nearby.

I did not enjoy Washington at Jeju, Korea a couple of years ago as it was full of Chinese group tourists although it was and is the scene of every hotel on this planet. Washington at Aomori was excellent for its price. It also served decent breakfast. The only problem is the bathroom. It is small. However, every hotel in Japan seems to be required to use the same size bathtub as I cannot find a bigger one in any hotel or ryokan I have stayed in Japan.

この度は青森ワシントンホテルにご宿泊いただきまして誠にありがとうございます。 多数のホテルにて団体のお客様と重なり、ご苦労されていらっしゃるご様子。 お察し申し上げます。 確かに私共も国外の団体のお客様で混み合うようになってきました。 団体のお客様もさることながら、 個人のお客様お一人お一人も大切に対応して参る所存です。 また、お風呂に関しては各お部屋のみとなっており、残念ながら温泉の様な大浴場は設けておりません。 大半は日本のビジネスホテル特有のバスタブとなっておりますが、 中には脚を伸ばせる広いタイプのお部屋もございます。 是非次回はそちらのお部屋をご案内させていただき、 ゆったりとお過ごしいただきたいと存じます。 またのお越しをスタッフ一同心よりお待ち致しております。

I stayed there several times already. It has a good location(in front of the station), a good restaurant and breakfast was rather good as well. The rooms are clean and modernly furnished. Probably one the best hotels of the city.

The hotel itself is fine - small but clean and efficient like many business hotels. Though I made the mistake of not reading the fine print that non-smoking/smoking preferences are based upon availability upon arriving, and the wi-fi is a Softbank paid service (LAN is free). Luckily we had a laptop with us but still surprised me because many of the other business hotels we stayed at during our stay had free Wi-Fi. At first I thought staying in a smoking room would be no big deal, we'll be out all day anyway and we'll get used to it, right? But unfortunately, I think the stale cigarette smoke smell did bother me enough to keep me from sleeping well. Except those two things, our stay was fine. The staff are nice enough. After we walked in drenched from a rainstorm, the front desk staff handed us towels to dry off, and when we headed out again, they lent us a strong umbrella. The location is great, down Amenity Street with a cover walkway (so grateful for it during the rain) plenty of convenience stores and restaurants. Don't miss the shrine with koi ponds midway between the hotel and the train station.

I used this hotel as a crash pad during Golden Week. It's a reasonable (15 min) walk from the train station, mostly down a (the?) main shopping street, which makes for a pleasant walk. I got the smallest room, since it'd only serve as a place to store my bags during the day and sleep at night. It served well in that role, but it was very small. There was a hot water heater pad so that you could make tea, as well as a tea cup and a water *cough*whisky*cough* glass. The documentation referred to a fridge full of "breathe on it and we'll charge you for it" items, so I didn't discover until the second night that it was in fact empty, whereupon I promptly filled it with drinks from the combini down the street. TV channels are so limited (4-5) that you'll just leave it turned off, even if you speak Japanese. The bed is...okay. It's not great, but it's not out of line with the rent, either. The lights only work with your room key inserted into a slot inside the door...which is annoying if you want to let something charge overnight. It seems that one of the lights can't be turned off, except by removing your key and disabling everything (except, oddly, the TV), so charging your devices while you sleep is only possible if you can sleep with the light on. There's a great Italian place two blocks down (away from the water) with English on the menu, but the staff speak none. I suppose if you find yourself in Aomori, either you're used to pointing at the menu and grunting, or you speak Japanese. In either case, I recommend the place highly if you stay at the Washington Hotel.
