Nice staff and adequate room. Good location and value.
“Good value, nice room and helpful staff”
Our cheap room had a great view over the city of Kagoshima (it's a high building) and have a great location. The room was clean and comfortable. There was wired internet on the room and wireless wifi in the lobby. The staff was a little lacking in English but really helpful and friendly. Me and my girlfriend was about to book a hotel in a smaller village following our stay in Kagoshima. The staff at Chisun Inn Kagoshima helped us call the other hotel and make a reservation in Japanese.
“Clean, convenient hotel in shopping district”
The room was clean and probably updated in the last few years from the decor, and cleanliness is always the most important factor for me. Walls are thin, like most Japanese hotels, so be prepared for that and be respectful of that, too. Good location near shopping, tram, and bus stops and within a reasonable walk to the ferry terminal to view Mt. Sakurajima. Hotel staff were kind and stored my luggage for me before check-in and after check-out for a few hours. Like other posters mentioned, there is only one elevator that does run slowly, and the front lobby is located on the 2nd floor, not first, so be prepared to haul your luggage up a narrow winding staircase for check-in. Nice having Internet access in the room, but the ethernet cable is too short to be able to use the Internet anywhere but the direct desk top. Only one pillow was provided for a double bed. Overall, the room served its purpose and I would stay there again.
“"A small but clean and modern hotel in the middle of Kagoshima"”
The Chisun Hotel is a hotel block sitting above a row of shophouses facing the road. It is newly refurbished and the decor is modern and refreshing. But don't expect a phone in your room for room to room calls! The Front Office Staff were all very helpful with their limited English speaking capabilities. Checking in is a bit of a hassle as you can't unload the luggage in the front of the hotel but about 200 ~ 300 m away at a side lane. Parking is about 300 m back to the hotel. In summary, the hotel rates are not cheap but the rooms are newly done up and are comfortable, albeit a bit small but not as small as some other Japanese hotels.
