Moved to this hotel after an unpleasant stay at a nearby hotel. Hotel East China Sea is a little bit older, but it has nice, big rooms with balcony views of the ocean and port. Good location for restaurants and shopping with paid city parking next door. An affordable price for a nice stay. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I would stay here again.

Relax”

Good view although we lived on the 5th floor, just very noisy from the ferry where busy operation from 7am to 3 pm. Staff are nice and helpful, check in at 2pm and check out at 11am, rare in Japan. Bed is a bit hard and pillow is a bit flat but not bad to a good sleep. Recommend this hotel although it is really old, still perfectly maintained. Toilet clean and standard, with good water pressure. No USB charging is provided, so you have to bring adapter.

Great base for Ishigaki and Yaeyama Islands”

We stayed two nights. After a long flight it was easy to get to on the airport bus . Because it is only 5 minutes walk from the bus and ferry terminal it makes it a great base to explore from. You are very close to many shops, bars and restuarants.. Our room overlooked the port and staff were helpful. Showers were good. Not the cheapest but not nearly the most expensive Only criticism is that the beds are a little hard.

Hotel East China Sea enjoys a great location, just a few meters away from the ferry port and from the main restaurants area. The view from our hotel room was stunning, and the room had also a small cozy balcony. The only real downside is that we asked for a queen size bed but they could only provide two separate single beds which could not be possibly joined together

The hotel location is good. Shop, food, pier are within walking distance. All room has a balcony where you could enjoy a nice see view and sunset. The size of the standard room is not big. The breakfast place at the 3/F is ok with variety of choices. No car park facilities and you have to park at the parking lot next door. It is not a 5 star hotel and so don’t expect too much from it. It is Ishigaki where you should enjoy the sunshine and sea. You are encourage to hop-off to the island tours where you could buy your tour tickets from the pier just few minutes away. The reception is small but the staffs are nice and friendly.
