Dormy Inn Hirosaki
Ranked #1 of 47 Hotels / Ryokan in Hirosaki
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 August 2015

Im not into Big Box hotels..but this was conveniently located (close by Hirosaki castle/park), free shuttle from train station,and a excellent onsen on the roof open all night, great free noodles in the evening, a very gracious front desk. They have limited English, but no biggie -we got by just fine. Rooms a little small but super clean and comfy and the pjs to walk around in hotel and onsen were nice. fresh apple juice in the lobby, kids can make sno -cones,.A lot little things that made me really like this place and a place I would definitely book again when I'm in the area.. The only thing caught me off guard and we laugh about it now-but some may be offended-In the room are several brochures and there was one or two for some "adult entertainment" geared towards men what many pictures that left little to the imagination... LOL

Room Tip: ask for a upper room over-looking the park if its available

Thank you for your staying at our hotel. We are glad to read your great massege.
The snow cone that your kids enjoyed making is a special service in summer. There are some hotels which belong to Dormy-Inn group in Japan. The free noodles in the evening and the delicious breakfast, the onsen are characteristics of Dormy-Inn. Which means that it's possible to relax again in our hotels wherever you are in Japan.
And we appreciate your advice about the several brochures in the room. we will seriously consider it.
Thank you very much for making time in your busy schedule.

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.
