Super convenient

Posted Jul 4, 2016 on Hotels
My friend and I stayed at Hotel Route-Inn before a test the next day. The room was your basic Japanese hotel which is on the smaller size, but we were only staying for 1 night so it wasn't an issue. I guess I didn't read the hotel description as well as I thought, so I was pleasantly surprised by the onsen and the complimentary breakfast. Both were fantastic, although the women's bath could only fit 4-6 people. The parking lot was big and could fit a lot of cars, but the stalls were pretty narrow. The hotel isn't THAT close to any train stations, so I don't really recommend staying here unless you have a car. But there's a convenience store right across from the hotel, along with a Sega Game Arcade~ Anyway, I would totally stay at Hotel Route-Inn Hirosaki-Joto and other Hotel Route-Inn locations again!

Faceless but functional for car drivers

Posted May 10, 2016
Pros: Clean, efficiently run, adequate facilities..
Cons: No complaints but no raving either.
Location: The Route Inn Joto was 3-4km from the castle park which is fine in a car but the walk is along busy main roads so not a choice or pleasant walk.
This hotel was at Joto which is not walkable (3km) to town centre so do not mix it up with the Route Inn at Eki-mae which is literally at the JR station in town. Having discovered our mistake we took a loop bus from the station but the service finished at around 4-5pm. There was very little to see or do around the hotel and no gardens. There was a small public bath open all afternoon and a part of the morning. The reception area had chairs and tables but wasn't a relaxing lounge type but more of a waiting area atmosphere. It seemed more suitable to drivers being easily accessible off the main road and parking.There was a Family Mart across the road but no alternative restaurants to the hotel that we saw. There were quite a lot of work men staying there when we visited and I would describe it as being functional and clean with friendly enough staff and adequate facilities but no personality. Again breakfast was fine with Japanese and western choices but nothing outstanding or memorable.

A bit far away from the sightseeing areas of Hirosaki, but within walking distance and comfortable.

事情により、真夜中のチェックインとなってしまいましたが、快く対応していただきました。 ねぷたを観る為の滞在でしたが、丁寧・親切に教えてくださいました。 お掃除の方も、朝食のレストランで働く方もみなさん感じがよかったです。 無料の新聞も嬉しかったです。 岩木山がとってもきれいだったのですが、部屋の窓は補強の線が入っていて窓の開き方も制限されるつくりだったので写真を撮ることができませんでした。どこか眺められる場所はないかを聞きましたがないとのこと。眺望に関しては残念でした。

Zweckmässig und freundlich

Es waren fast keine Hotels mehr frei. Es ist ein Business-Hotel, wo man nach 9 Uhr kein Frühstück mehr erhält. Das Essen im Abend war geschmacklos. Nach 9 Uhr am Abend gibt es nichts mehr. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich versteht aber wenig Englisch.
