The Hotel Riverge Akebono is a gem. It was built in the mid 1990s; however, it has been well maintained and some rooms have been completely updated.
Sitting by the river in Fukui, in cherry blossom season, hotel rooms with views of the river have spectacular scenery.
My room was an "executive single" and beautifully appointed in contemporary decor with an emphasis on browns and soft textured beige, featuring some of Fukui's stunning papers.
The breakfast buffet, for which you pay extra, is a feast for the senses. Local pickles, everything freshly cooked or baked. Try the awesome array of pickles and the little freshly baked rice rolls. Yum!
For all the above reason I am giving the Riverge Akebono four stars.
A short drive from the station, or a 15 minute walk.
