Location is at its best!!
Near Hiroshima Station 500 m by foot
Located so near to many restaurants and shopping area

Rooms:
Small rooms how room facilities are well functional. Rooms are cleaned everyday.

With the hotel class or category, we did not expect big rooms

Breakfast is adequate in its class
They have the basic and simple breakfast.

Free Lights snacks from 2-11 PM was really a good gesture to all hotel guests.

Front Desk staff are genuinely helpful and courteous.

We had all what we need and what we expect in this hotel.

It was an excellent stay.

Family of 5 traveling to Hiroshima, two rooms, 3 in one and 2 in another. We found the hotel room to be more spacious than the room we had in Tokyo in which we could barely have room to walk by our bed even with our luggage folded. The room we had had two double beds a desk/table area with hot pot and complimentary tea and a small refrigerator. The wash basin was outside of the restroom with the bath and toilet. For three people there was ample room in respect to how Japanese hotel rooms can be. We liked the energy efficiency of the room lights going off if your room card was not in the light slot on the wall. The Japanese breakfasts served was not fantastic but for the price of the hotel we found it to be very good and the main items did change daily which was nice. The beds were on the firm side but we have had a lot firmer which was more like sleeping on concrete in other hotels. If we visited this area again, we would stay at this hotel again. It was clean and the housekeeping staff were pleasant and refreshed our towels by leaving new towels in bags with all new amenities (toothbrushes,etc) on our door if we did not want the room cleaned for the day. It was also conveniently located across from the train station and 7-11 on the corner made it convenient for late night snacking.

I stayed at this hotel over a long weekend in Japan. The first thing that struck me was how expensive it was. My other half booked this place and in her defence, the choice wasn't that big being a long weekend and shes none the wiser of how things work with regards to pricing in Japan. ¥30,000 for 2 people for 2 nights was ridiculous. I was hoping for something that would match the price, but the room was an absolute shoe box in comparison to what I would deem a reasonable room for that place. The bed wasn't even a double bed. I did my research into how much this room usually costs, and it appears that the price was hiked massively as it was a long weekend. Japan is a country where there is nothing in it for the consumer and the only beneficiaries are those providing the service. It almost seems like legitimate theft (those who rent in Japan, refer to key money, insurance etc as an example).

Despite the cleanliness of the hotel, it can be described as basic at best. The cost does not justify what the service offers. I may not be able to change how Japan operates, but there is no harm in bringing this to light, in a country where people don't seem to speak out and rebel. The fact that the hotel charges 700 yen for a breakfast that did not look edible on top of the extortionate rooms costs added insult to injury.

Unless you can get this place for a special price, and by special I mean low to match the quality of the hotel, go for it, otherwise, don't bother getting ripped off.

Dear Mr. cfp19, Thank you very much for staying at our hotel. Our room rate varies depending on the situation day by day. Room rate tends to be higher when it is on the day before holiday or weekend. Moreover, we are sorry that you were not satisfied with our breakfast. We are striving to improve our service in order to meet guests expectations. Although we could not meet your expectation this time, but we will do our best if you give us a next opportunity. Best regards, Ayako Kanetsuna VESSEL INN HIROSHIMA EKIMAE

As stayed in previous review on this hotel I jave been unhappy in the past because the charged 1000 yen for room card that was lost. Having said this i still go nack because it is clean, cheap, modern, and close to the train station. Most of the staff are friendly. 700 yen breakfast is basic but not bad value.

Ok, I have given this Hotel a Bad review before, I stand by my words, however there are some good things about this Hotel. I have also stayed here since my bad review and have also booked again for next trip. Rooms are small, as many are in Japan, however they are clean and modern. I have only had single rooms, or triple room. The triple room was too small, and really is a double with a second bed. It had 2 single beds and a fold out one in front of the sink.
The hotel is very close to the station and the trams. As I said it is clean and pleasant. I still think that they were unreasonable to charge so much for a room key, but if you don't loose it you will be ok.
