The location of the hotel is good. The smile hotel is just another hotel with not that much extra to offer. Stay was okay, bed is comfortable, staff speaks little English. City is beautiful so worth a visit.

Well positioned Hotel close to everything. Nightlife, restaurants and transport all close by. The rooms are very small and bathroom tiny. Small storage but clean room with window that opens. Staff pretty disinterested.

Smile Hotel is located in an excellent area in the heart of Katamachi in Kanazawa. Given that I managed to secure a good price on my room, value for money is excellent. The immediate area includes restaurants and shops. The hotel is also near the main road where many major buses run including a few of Kanazawa's community buses. It’s...

Whilst not the most luxurious nor modern hotel, this property was the ideal location for our short 1 night visit to Kanazawa to see the Myoruji (Ninja Temple), market and Kanazawa Kenrokuen. The property is located within the central bus line about 10 minutes ride from the train station. It's about a 15 minute walk to Kanazawa castle and Kenrokuen...
