3.19km from Gusto Koriyama-MinamiVisiting our family in Koriyama, this hotel was very close to the station and the town centre, located in a very quiet area (near Usui). I travelled with my teenage sons, so our rooms were separated. The hotel has been recently refurbished, and is very clean and tidy.. We first stayed in 3 single rooms, which had all you need when you stay in a budget hotel, on the second floor. The hostess was more than welcoming and very accommodating: we were able to check-in at 2 pm, and I could even use the big o-furo (and sauna) early afternoon located on the women-only floor. A blessing after a long flight followed by a Shinkansen trip from Tokyo to Koriyama. The O-furo for men is on the basement. There is a Japanese "tatami" room on the ground floor. The staff speaks enough English to help you around. I also stayed one night on the women-only dormitory (the boys were on the men-only floor). There is a secure entry to that women's floor. The "room" leaves enough space for a big suitcase, it has a little safe and a TV with headphones. The bed was very comfortable. There is a "living-room" on that floor with TV, micro-wave, kettle, table and comfy chairs. I could have asked for more. Due to the regulations in Japan, the door to the "rooms" has no lock, but this is Japan, so already very safe + the entry to the level is restricted to those who have a key (so women-guests only + staff). I felt very safe. Some days, the breakfast was Japanese-style, other days, Western-style. Always yummy. The hostel has a restaurant which is very handy when you don't go out. It's offering simple western-style dishes, with Japanese interpretation. For sure delicious, and not too heavy. Being virtually in the centre of the city, you'll find all you need within walking distance. Overall, I was pleasantly impressed.
