For the "Silver Week" holiday, I took a small vacation to Kumamoto with my wife and eight other family members. We spent a lot of time in the Mt. Aso area but in actuality most of the time was spent in the car sitting in long traffic jams. When it came time to check in to the hotel, I was... More

Stayed 2 nights in Vessel Hotel. Compared to Intercontinental Grand Yokohama, triple expensive than this hotel, I would say I like this hotel much better in many ways. Bed was comfortable, and breakfast was great. Most bang for a buck. Highly recommendable hotel.

This hotel was a surprise for Japan. It's much like American hotels like a Hampton Inn. I needed a hotel quite near the airport, with options for food nearby. The Vessel was a 2000 yen cab ride away; perhaps 15 minutes. I found it to be a clean, somewhat Spartan place. The lobby is small, and there is a basic... More

The appearance of this hotel looks like a public housing but generally it is good on the inside. The faucet, washing basin are separated from the toilet. The room is bigger than a standard Japanese hotel, and the breakfast is filled with a good combination of Japanese and Western. The salty fish is good for your appetite. If you want... More

We were happy staying here the night before an early morning flight. The rooms are large by Japanese standards, and the breakfast was good, with plenty of selection (both Japanese and western). They offer simple evening meals (until 21.00) in the decidedly unromantic breakfast area, but we walked 5 minutes west along the highway to a Joyfun restaurant (Japan's answer... More

I travel to Kumamoto for work, and this hotel is near my worksite, so I have at times practically lived here. Other US colleagues have stayed and liked this hotel. The rooms are bigger than your standard Japanese "business hotel." Some of the furnishings are EXACTLY the same as Sleep Inns that I've stayed at in the US. Like most... More
