We stayed during the annual "Two Day March" Volksmarch that starts from the City Hall (which is nearby). The rooftop hot spring bath was welcome after each day's walk. The hotel is about a 30 minute walk from the station, but there is a shuttle service in the mornings. (And Hirosaki has a 100 yen loop bus that goes past the hotel.)

The breakfast buffet was OK. The room was clean and in excellent condition. A good value for a hotel a step above the typical Japanese business hotel.

The hotel feels a bit like a Japanese version of Premier Inn or Travelodge minus the comfy beds. I was slightly put off by the fact that there were smoking rooms, surely a health-conscious nation like Japan would have caught up with the rest of the world and introduce a non-smoking policy in all public buildings by now? There was a whiff in the room, the TV was all in Japanese with some rather dodgy channels on.
The breakfast area was very nice though, very traditional (don't think I spotted cereal) and everyone was extremely polite. Front desk staff was very nice and polite, although the generic level of English was very poor (I'm afraid I don't speak any Japanese).
Bill was paid by work so I'm not sure how good value it is but I'd rather stayed somewhere a bit less old-school and more fragrant.

Room tip: Book a room here only if you don't mind the smell of smoke

A short taxi ride to the hotel covered by the hotel. Very clean room, yes it is on the smaller side but for 2 people for 1 night it is perfect. Close to the historical area and castle. Would definitely stay again. Travelling around Japan on a 7 day rail pass, so hotels near stations are great.

We have stayed in a Dormy Inn previously and were impresed. This hotel, smaller in a smaller town, did not disappoint us. The hotel is a short taxi ride from the station and well located for the Hirosaki Castle and, for us, the snow lantern festival - only about a 7 minute walk. The hotel staff were very helpful and efficient. The room was of average size- not too small- and equipped as you would expect, to a high standard. The buffet breakfast was very good with a wide range of food and includes some delicious local dishes. The onsen, on the top floor, is fantastic. It is a serene oasis in which to bath and relax. I take away a special memory of soaking in the outside pool, with snow falling and illuminated by the glow from the Hirosaki style lanterns. Highly recommended.

I have never been in Hirosaki and was looking for a hotel with hot spring bath, walking distance to Castle and reasonable price...well, I found this one! It was bit difficult to find the hotel because we did not have GPA - but if you are driving, look for the sign to Hirosaki University Medical Center. It is a block away from the hospital. I like the room - the view are also great. The castle is few blocks away and there are many restaurants around. The castle is light up beautifully at night and you can walk the park without paying - and it is very safe. The hot spring is on the 10th floor. You wash yourself first, rinse your body and warm up in tub - then go outside. It is decorated nicely - there were bunch of lemons floating in the water and scent is heavenly!
It is fantastic way to relax ...looking city lights, cool breez keep you comfortable.
The breakfast was included in the price - it is buffet style with Japanese style and American style (waffles, yogurt, coffee, fruits, breads...). All fresh and tasted great. I would stay again!
