This hotel is not close to Hirosaki station. Take a taxi or their free hourly shuttle to the hotel itself. The shuttle is actually one of the station taxis they send out to pickup guests. The drivers then pickups the fee for the number of passengers that are dropp off. I guess this is a pretty good setup that benefits both the hotel and the taxi drivers.
The hotel itself very close to Hirosaki castle grounds famous for their cherry viewing points. Since I went in winter there were no thousands of blossoms petals falling like but a different kind of beauty.
In any case the hotel is typical Dormy Inn with a nice indoor and outdoor Ofuro, free 9pm ramen noodles, rooms are clean and of decent size. There is a convince store across the street if you need anything and restaurants abound nearby.
Overall this is a great hotel to stay at for a relaxing time and easy access to Hirosaki castle Park.
