I stayed at this hotel in mid-April while on a work trip, and experienced by first earthquake on the same night. As I was travelling for work, all the necessary prior arrangements were handled on my behalf. The room I was in, located on the 5th floor, did not have a double bed, but instead two single beds. My room...

When in Kumamoto, look no further than KKR! The views of the Kumamoto Castle are breathtaking, the restaurants, especially the Japanese restaurant is outstanding and its just steps away from the city. The service is great! You really can't find a quieter and more alluring place like this in Kumamoto City!

I'm glad I stayed in this hotel. Rooms are spacious. Staff speak English. My room has a view of the castle. It's less than 5 minutes walk to one of the entrances to the castle and the Prefecture Arts and Traditional crafts museum. 9 min walk to Shimtori, the sheltered mall. At cross sections of the street malls are lots...

The location of the hotel is great. It took around 10 mins from JR station by taxi and costed me around ¥1300. I dropped my luggage at hotel before check in time & the Kumamoto Castle is just opposite the hotel. And, I walked about 10 mins from hotel to nearby shopping area (Shimotori). If you take taxi back &...

We stayed here one night enroute and to visit Kumamoto castle and had picked this hotel exactly for that purpose. It looks like a slightly dated run of the mill Japanese business hotel but we found it extremely well maintained and the service flawless. The best thing about the hotel are its location and views of the castle. Unlike most...

The room that we stayed could see Kumamoto Castle right in front of us which is so amazing! However, the air conditioner was not working properly and they took plenty of time to fix the issue, they gave us 50% discount of the room charge because of that. Overall, the price of this hotel is very reasonable and the location...

Walking distance from the Kumamoto-Castle. Building is old but well maintained. Room size is relatively large considering the cost. Looks like they don't offer the non-smoking room. So my family felt the smell of the smoke. That is the only issue we recognized. From the hotel to the downtown by taxi cost around 700 yen FYI, but you can also...
