stressful parking time but excellent customer servie”

Its multilevel carpark facility cannot accommodate more than 1.5m height car. therefore, i cannot park into it and very stressful especially need to drive to nearby private carpark in a middle of massive traffic jam. Lucky, the staff is very helpful tht by helping to block the traffic for me to reverse my car and drive to the public multi level carpark. He also teach me how to wait at the parking machine at the entrance and quickly snatch the ticket to enter immediately when a car was coming out from the public multi level carpark or otherwise someone will snatch the ticket and enter first. well, i just learn this parking culture in Kumamoto.

Size of the room was very small. Not sufficient for a couple. Cleaning of the room was disappointed. Visual dirt on bedding making us felt very uncomfortable and queried about the cleanliness of the room. The air conditioning system only had the choice of "warm" room and nil selection for "cold" room. The room was too hot for us so that we had to open window for ingress of cold open air. The hotel location is convenient with key shopping areas and convenient shops in vicinity. This may only be the merit point of the hotel.

We really liked our time at Washington Plaza - the place of location was absolutley perfect, directly in the center. The room was spacy, nicely lit and cozy, though the matress may have been a little bit hard. We didn't have any problems, but basic Japanese has been proven to be convenient, as the staff doesn't hardly speak any English. We recommend this hotel!

Not far from Kumamoto station, close to the shopping arcade, many features

The hotel was only .8 kilometers from Kumamoto station and only one block from the large shopping arcade. There were two convenience stores nearby. The hotel had a classy look on the inside. It had most of the features you would expect, but it did lack ice and vending machines. My view overlooked a parking lot. The clerk who handled my check-in came off as a bit smarmy but he got the job done. For the location and price, however, it''s hard to beat.

Friendly staff, good location in centre of town, reasonable room

This hotel is located in the centre of town and near the traditional shopping district. The incredible Kumamoto castle is only a short 15 minutes walk away. The hotel room itself was a typical small Japanese hotel rooms with its matching bathroom. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the place very clean. I think the 4 star rating for this hotel might only apply to the foyer as the room itself was really similar to a 3 star hotel room. There was nothing especially notable about the room, however the hotel was quiet and I enjoyed a good night's sleep.

Staff, toilet(?), breakfast

Abysmal Wi-Fi. other reviewers noted this but the wifi wasn't working for a good long time. Don't they realise some people, many, don't travel in sardine packed on-rails tour groups. We need WiFi to help us plan these days. I like to relax in a hotel with gear, maps, tourist ditties and, most necessary, wifi to research the next leg, see what's to do, local restaurants and shops and plan trains etc,. I don't orientate via stars I use google maps! thankful the staff were super. Shout out to the cute Canadian accented girl who helped get the wifi on. the breakfast is cheap but excellent, much better than other hotels in Japan who charge 50% more. it's also very close to shopping. view is rubbish, I opened the curtain only to see some buildings and some kids otaku room with a gigantic pirate flag on the wall...
