Pleasant experience in KanazawaPosted Apr 7, 2013
Well situated hotel in downtown Kanazawa. It's within walking distance from Kanazawa Castle and Kenrokuen. Many restaurants and shops to chose from in close proximity. The room size was bigger than what I was used to in Japan.

Quite spacious and attractively decorated with wood trim and nice fabrics. The couch was made up for our daughter to sleep in. Having three in the room worked out very well here, unlike in other cities. Rooms open to a large interior courtyard. This helped keep the room cool. (In some other modern hotels we were unable to get the room cold enough at night -- no simple ventilation option.) Roomy ofuro. I did not like the apparatus for heating water for tea -- bad labels, won't restart if you lift the pitcher off the heating element. Most hotel water pots in Japan are far too complicated and this was the worst. Very important: recognize that another separate APA hotel is directly across the street. I parked there, assuming that was our hotel. I was met with blank stares and then told to schlep all our bags across the street to where we had the reservation. The parking system was also complicated and takes advanced Japanese to explain: you pay the hotel for overnight periods, but for the mid-day period you pay a separate, hefty fee to the garage people. But it was a low price for a nice room, and very near the historic streets where you want to spend the most time. Breakfast bar (at the sister hotel across the street, in the Seattle coffee bar) looked decent and a good value (comparatively within Japan, that is -- you need to have a taste for hot dogs, salad, and wet eggs).
