Awesome and comfortable hotel
Awesome location close to tram stop, ferry and shopping
I booked 3 nights stay at Richmond Hotel Kagoshima Kinseicho hoping to see Sakurajima volcano erupt and we were not disappointed. Nor were we disappointed with Richmond Hotel. We absolutely loved our room with so many things: fridge, flat screen TV, hairdryer, water heater, cups, mugs, tea, coffee, several mirrors, night gowns, big bath with body wash, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hairbrushes, shaver, and many towers. The friendly English speaking staff explained everything during check-in and even gave 2 drink coupons. The hotel is located walking distance to the Dolphin Aquarium, the Ferry Terminal to Mount Sakurajima and great shopping. I would definitely stay at this Richmond Hotel again!

Excellent choice to stay in Kagoshima
Modern, new, friendly staff
The rooms are impeccably clean. Newest standard with all amenities. Staff was very friendly and helpful. One of the woman spoke perfect English and was really interested in making me feel at home. The hotel clearly exceeded what I had expected at such a relatively out-of-the-way location. Breakfast buffet with Japanese choices. Attentive waiters/waitresses. Restaurant stylish and well designed.

very convenient, good wifi
location, friendly helpful staff, simple wifi that just works
The best thing about the hotel is the location. It is a short walking distance to the Sakurajima ferry and a number of restaurants at Dolphin Port, it is across the street from a major department store, and it is walking distance from a number of attractions including what's left of the St. Francis Xavier church. The room was nice -- we had a room facing the back, no view, but quiet. We were unable to figure out how to open the window (though it looks like it might open). The staff was unfailingly polite. The breakfast is good if you like Japanese food, and the restaurant it is served in feels modern and fancy. Some hotels require you to go through all sorts of weird agrements (that get in the way and that nobody reads) to actually get to the WiFi. The Richmond Hotel doesn't -- connecting to WiFi is very simple and refreshingly straightforward. The same comment applies to the hotel as a whole -- everything we wanted, and nothing we didn't.

Need to take tram from train station which is about 5 to 6 stops away. Staffs can understand simple English and some can speak Mandarin. Room is a little small though.
