Castle views right next to Fukuyama station
Stayed 3 nights in a triple room (1 double plus extra single). Room was spacious compared to typical Japanese hotels. Hotel is across the road from the JR Fukuyama station and our room had wonderful views of the castle. Good buffet breakfast for 800 yen. Coin laundry came in handy also. Would stay again.

Beware room type and rate
proximity to station
This is a tale of two cities.. or rather, different rooms at different rates in the same hotel. I picked this hotel after reading all the rave reviews and the great rating - and paid USD175 for my room. Which seems fair for a great hotel, right? After all, the reviews said the rooms were a "good size" with a "great view" and a "excellent complimentary breakfast". None of which was true of our room. It was barely enough room for two people to stand in the room. The bed was pushed against the wall meaning one person had to clamber over to get in. The view was of a brick wall 2 feet away, meaning even in sunlight you need all the lights on in the room just to see. The bathroom is a small, standard Japanese "plastic bathroom". It had a good selection of amenities. In the morning, downstairs, there was a sign announcing the "free continental breakfast served in the lobby area". This "free" breakfast cost 800 Yen - the sign is basically a mis-translation (or so they told us).

Convenient location and fair price
Clean, convenient, above-average sized room for Japan
The hotel was easy to find - across the road from Fukuyama railway station's north exit - and within walking distance, even with a suitcase to carry. The building appears modern and was clean and well maintained. Although near the city centre the hotel was relatively quiet. The bed was comfortable. Free coffee was available in the ground floor lounge in the evening, and sachets of tea - but no coffee - in the room. There is a reasonably sized refrigerator and kettle in the room for the guests use. The free continental breakfast (mainly Japanese food) was adequate and if the ground floor lounge was busy could be taken to the room. For foreigners requiring fast food, there is a branch of KFC on the other side of the railway tracks about ten minutes walking distance. The internet connection in the room was good.

lovely hotels and friendly, welcoming staff.
Very good breakfast with western food if you prefer. Great location with access to public transport.
The staff were friendly and helpful. On our arrival we had a Japanese speaker with us which was helpful - the Agoda booking print off for hotel reception is in English and the staff appeared to have a little difficulty. The hotel was really nice and comfortable to stay in - enjoyed the choices presented for breakfast. A very pleasant stay.
