A elegant hotel with retro Taisyo era atmosphere near Kenroku en

This hotel is quiet even though it’s located near city centre of Kanazawa. It’s very convenient location to travel wherever you want to go for sightseeing in Kanazawa as this hotel is so close to Kenroku en or Kanazawa castle. Inside and outside of this hotel is well designed as if you are back to the Taisho era. Interior at bed room is so unique and it made me feel so elegant.

Elegant atmosphere

You can have a relaxed stay at this hotel. A room is spacious and decorated with retro taste so I think older people will like staying there. This hotel isn’t located in front of Kanazawa station but you’ll have no problem reaching there. This hotel has a big common bath with natural hot spring, although many hotels don’t have a natural hot spring. The quality of spring is good and bath tub isn’t small. I recommend it.

Near sightseeing spots and with a hot spring

This hotel is located near the city centre of Kanazawa and it takes about 10min by foot to go to kenroku en or Higashi chaya town. So it’s very convenient location for sightseeing. Although the building isn’t new, the concept of this hotel is Taisyo roman so it has a retro atmosphere. This hotel has a hot spring so you can relax soaking in a hot spring to relieve your tiredness at a big common bath. You can enjoy eating delicious dishes with local Kaga vegetables at buffet. The rate isn’t so expensive. I think this hotel is good value for money.

Convenient to travel within the city and many spots for sightseeing

It takes about 20min by bus to get to this hotel from Kanazawa station. It takes about 10mins by taxi. This hotel is located next to Kanazawa castle and it takes 5mins to go to Kenroku en, Higashi chaya and 21century art museum. You can have relaxed time by soaking in cobalt coloured natural hot spring gushing out from underground of 807m. It makes your skin smooth. You can enjoy eating Kaga kaiseki and French course which are made from seasonal ingredients. This clean hotel has an atmosphere of Kanazawa castle town with a hot spring. If you want to buy some souvenirs, you can buy them at Konoe cyo ichibakan or shop in the hotel. You cannot take your pet with you to this hotel. It has delivery and post services at the front desk. You cannot really trust on the weather forecast so it’s always better to take a compact umbrella with you.

It’s convenient to travel everywhere

This hotel is located near a moat of Kanazawa jyo. Kenroku en, Ooecyo market, 21century art museum and Kanazawa station are within walking distance. You can also walk to Kazuemachi chaya or Higashi chaya. This hotel has also the good hot spring. I don’t think you need to pay a lot for a room.

Relaxing at a hot spring

This hotel is locates in Kanazawa city but there is a big common bath with a hot spring which makes your skin smooth. You can have a relaxed time there.
The buses for sightseeing are well-established in Kanazawa city so you can easily travel there from Kanazawa station without any stresses if you come to Kanazawa by train.
Kenrokuen is within walking distance so you can go for a walk not only day time but also night time.

Kenrokuen and hot spring

This hotel is located in the city centre and you just need to walk a bit to go to winter’s Kenrokuen. The hotel has an retro atmosphere of Daisyo roman and you can have a relaxed time there. In addition, you can soak in good quality of hot spring and the rate is reasonable. I think your mother can enjoy feeling the relaxed atmosphere which is worthy to Kanazawa Hyakumangoku.

This hotel has great access to transportation

This hotel is close to Kanazawa station as well as a bus stop of city round bus.
The rate is less than 10,000yen per night. Breakfast is great. There is a big common bath so you can relieve your tired body.
You can save money by staying there so you can go to nice restaurants. For example, you can eat Kanazawa’s fresh seafood at ‘Shamoji ya’ near Oumi cyo market. You can also have a lunch at Ryoutei Kinjyohro that is located next to Oohi art museum of Oohi yaki and you can enjoy eating Japanese sweets at Morihachi. By doing so, I think your Hokuriku trip will be so great. if you have time, I recommend that you visit at Ishikawa prefectural art museum to see national treasure from Ninsei Nonomura.

Make your body warm

I like a hot spring at a big common bath. Although there are many hotels in front of the station, this hotel is the only one with a natural hot spring around the station and also the rate is cheap. You can also eat small portion of Yonaki soba (ramen) after 22 as free of charge. It’s close to the station. The shopping centre is right in front of the hotel.



A hotel you can be satisfied due to the price and location

It takes less than 5mins by foot from Kanazawa station to get to this hotel so it’s great location. The department store with many restaurants that cook dishes by using local ingredients is right in front so you’ll never have problems finding places to dine. In addition, you can eat Yonaki soba, limited food only for guest, as free of charge at the hotel, I think it is a great service especially when you have hunger at night.
The rate is very much depending on the season but you can stay there for 2,900yen per person per night in low season. (of course, the bed is twin). Even in high season, the rate will not be higher than 6000yen so I really recommend this hotel.
Negative point is that you cannot take a bath at a open-air bath while watching the night view. I think it is such a pity because this hotel is well-known because of natural hot spring. If you don’t mind it, I think this hotel can be your option to stay at.

You can enjoy Japanese hospitality and service

This Japanese style hotel is a bit far from Kanazawa but I’m sure you can receive high quality of Japanese way of hospitality and service. I want you to stay there if you travel to Kanazawa. I stay there ever year. Facilities, hot spring, meals and kind hospitality and service are just great. I can tell that other hotels are trying to learn their service.

The No.1 hospitality and hot spring

I highly recommend Kagaya. The quality of room maid is also great. They take care of guest so well and you’ll feel their hospitality when you check-in, check-out and leave. A hot spring is spacious so you can have a relaxed time. The shop of Tsujiguchi pastry chef is nearby and you can eat delicious cake there. It’s a bit far from Kanazawa but you can easily access by car with Satoyama kaido and by train with express Sander bird.

I recommend a room in sea side

Kagaya is well known high-class Japanese style hotel but you can stay at this hotel cheaper than staying at Kagaya but you’ll receive high quality of service. Windows at a bathroom are all glassed-in so you feel the sense of space a lot. I like soaking in a hot spring while watching a sunset but I also like the view of early morning. I think your mother would like it too. A room isn’t so spacious but clean and comfortable. The meals were delicious and I highly recommend this hotel.

A high-class hotel with ocean view

This hotel belongs to famous Kagaya group. Although it’s nice to stay at Hankan of Kagaya, I recommend the branch hotel because you can stay cheaper. I think it is good idea to save some money for an accommodation and go to the nice restaurant to eat something delicious.
There is a spacious bath with ocean view and I recommend it. You can also use a bath at main building. You can enjoy eating seafood from Japan Sea.
The Japanese room is very spacious so I think you can have a relaxed time.

30min by car from Kanazawa. A Japanese style hotel with an atmosphere which has a stage for Nou

This Japanese style hotel with an atmosphere which has a stage for Nou is 30mins away from Kanazawa by car or bus. You can enjoy eating Kaiseki dishes includes Jibuni, local Kanazawa vegetables and seafood from Hokuriku in your own pace. You can enjoy soaking in a cobalt coloured hot spring while feeling a soft sunlight. This hot spring is easy and soft to your skin and it’s also known as a hot spring for beautiful skin.

A great Japanese style hotel in Kanazawa with 200years of history

This long-established Japanese style hotel is located in Fukaya onsen which is considered as an annex of Kanazawa. It takes about 20mins by taxi to get there.
The front looks like ‘Tyouba’ from old Japanese style hotel. This hotel started the business in Kansei era so it has a history of 200years. Even rooms and bathrooms make you feel elegance. You can enjoy eating kaiseki dishes with Yabuni, Kanazawa speciality, as a main dish. I think this hotel is great and suitable for trip in Kanazawa, a little Kyoto in Hokuriku.

An accommodation in Yuwaki onsen, an annex of Kanazawa

I stayed at this hotel with my wife when I went back to my parent’s house in Kanazawa. It takes about 1 hour by bus to drive to the direction of Saigawa jyouryu from the centre of Kanazawa city. This hotel has main building and wooden annex ‘Seiran sou’ as well as chartered baths. If you want to stay inside of Kanazawa city, almost all accommodations are hotels. If you want to stay at Japanese style hotel, you can stay at kappou Japanese style hotel ‘Kanazawa Cyaya’ from famous Wakura onsen Kagaya group but they don’t have a hot spring.

Kanazawa’s annex=Yuwaku onsen

There are a lot of hot springs in Ishikawa prefecture but it takes from 1 hour and half to 2hours to drive by car to get most of hot spring area from Kanazawa city. If you want to do sightseeing and have a rest at an accommodation earlier, I strongly recommend Yuwaku onsen. You can reach there within 30mins by bus from the city. ‘Kanaya’ is a very popular accommodation and even locals stay there. I think you and your mother will be satisfied with your stay!

Although the water isn’t a hot spring, you can enjoy taking a bath at green-surrounded garden bath and ancient hinoki bath.
You can enjoy eating delicious and elegant Kaga kaiseki dishes. You can drink Matcha as free of charge.

This hotel can conveniently be as your base for sightseeing and you can eat delicious food from Kaga.

I recommend Kappou Japanese style hotel ‘Kanazawa Cyaya’ from Wakura onsen Kagata group. Although this hotel isn’t with a hot spring, it’s very convenient base for your Kanazawa trip as this hotel is located in front of the east gate of JR Kanazawa station. In addition, you can receive great hospitality of Kagaya group. You can also enjoy eating Kaga dishes with full of seasonal ingredients. You can spend a relaxed and quiet time at the room so I think you can have a great time with your mother.

The location of this hotel is also great so you can easily go for sightseeing. It’s also convenient to go back hotel to have a rest when you get tired. I recommend this hotel for your trip with your mother.

I stayed at this hotel for business purpose. Even though this hotel is located near the station, you can have a relaxed stay as if you are separated from noise in front of the station. I think this hotel is good place to stay for personal trip. I don’t know where you want to visit in Kanazawa but you’ll feel safe even though you arrive late because this hotel is near the station.

Relaxed and stylish building.

This hotel is a bit far from Kanazawa. If you don’t have a car, you can use a shuttle service from JR station. Although outside of the building looks old, inside of the hotel looks elegant, stylish and clean. You can feel how stylish and special this hotel is such as a promenade to bath room or unique objects at the bathroom. At the beginning, I thought I don’t need to stay at a room with open-air bath because there is a big common bath at the hotel. But I found it very convenient as I can take a bath anytime I want. The meals are made from fresh seafood and big portion.
