ART HOTEL Hirosaki City
Ranked #2 of 47 Hotels / Ryokan in Hirosaki
Reviewed 11 April 2016

I booked a twin room, the beds were suprising spacious,just big enough for two pillows across. The bath and room were bigger that the slightly cheaper chain business hotels i often stay in. The hotel has a nice cafe. Though the walls are quite thin, I could hear my son playing from the elevator but i didn't hear anyone else during our stay. The guest rooms are on the 5-11 th floor, we had a gorgeous view from the 8 th floor of snow cappedmount Iwaki. Parking was an extra 700 yen per night. The station area was very quiet at night, it was a sunday also so we had to take a taxi over to the area near the castle to fond a non-chain restaurant to eat in, it was 850 yen but well worth it for more local reasonably priced food. It is worth seeking out hand written menus and places with small signs as the food and service is much better. We didn't eat at this hotel or use any facilities, we bought some apple pastries fromtneh cafe to take put with us for breakfast.

Room Tip: The 8 th floor, room 818 had a fantastic view of Mount Iwaki.

You really appreciate how close this hotel is to the station if it's 0 degrees and snowing! However there aren't too many good places to eat nearby, mainly izakaya and the more expensive hotel restaurants.
Rooms are small though the bathroom is adequate with Polar toiletries, there's also a good humidifier in the room.

There's a buffet breakfast with excellent choices including a unique garlic ham and very good bacon, scallop rice and fruit compote.

A good business hotel with some English spoken.

Right next to the train station. Internet access for all you "gijin" Americans. Reasonable price, again get the breakfast, you will not be disappointed. Remember, these are "Japanese" hotel rooms. So if you have lots of luggage and may be a little larger than the normal Japanese, recommend a larger room.
Although the Japanese are very meticulous to detail, one room had a filthy carpet. We had to be assigned another. I would have given them a higher rating except for the filthy carpet.

Room Tip: Mountain side

There are several hotels next to the Hirosaki JR station, this hotel is the best value for money. The room and bathroom are clear and spacious, the breakfast has loads of variety with good seasoning. However, I think it does need some maintenance, as most of the carpet in the breakfast lounge are wearing-off. This hotel is about 2 minutes walk from the JR station. There are plenty of traditional restaurants and pizzeria within 5 minutes walking distance. The newly opened Gyuukaku is within 10 minutes walking distance. Overall, we have enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

We stayed at the Best Westin Hirosaki for 5 nights in September 2014. It was a very pleasant experience. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

This is a business type hotel and the rates reflect that. We got a very good rate by booking 60 days in advance over the internet.

The room was clean, of reasonable size and with a standard modular bathroom. The free wi-fi is excellent.

The buffet breakfast deserves special mention for its variety and quality.

The staff were pleasant and helpful.

The hotel is located 1 minutes walk from the station. It is an excellent location from which to see the Hirosaki area. Most places of interest are either walking distance or easily accessable using the 100 Yen Bus which departs the front of the station every 10 minutes.
