こんにちは (Konnichiwa)!

Hiroshima is unlike any other city in the world. It experienced one of the worst events in the history of mankind and has not only rebuilt itself but is now a thriving major city in Japan. 

Even though Hiroshima is fairly large in size, choosing where to stay in Hiroshima is easy. You want to be as close to the city center as possible since many of Hiroshima's major attractions are spread across the city. The best place to stay in Hiroshima is the Hiroshima Washington Hotel, which happens to be right in the heart of Hiroshima.

Hiroshima Washington Hotel is where we stayed for the Hiroshima leg of our month long Japan trip. The location of the Hiroshima Washington Hotel made traveling in Hiroshima so easy it was almost effortless. From waking up to an amazing breakfast spread to ending the night with an incredible view of Hiroshima from our room, we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Hiroshima and it had everything to do with picking the perfect accommodation in Hiroshima, the Hiroshima Washington Hotel.

While the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Atomic Bomb Dome are located next to one another, the rest of Hiroshima's notable attractions are spread throughout the city. Luckily Hiroshima Washington Hotel's central location allows for easy access to all of Hiroshima's attractions.

Hiroshima Washington Hotel is just a 5 minute walk from Tate-machi, a transit stop which is home to three of Hiroshima's Dentetsu lines. These lines will easily connect you to the rest of Hiroshima and its outskirts.

If you're looking for places to eat in Hiroshima, you don't have to look far. The famous Okonomi-mura, home to 3 floors of okonomiyaki stalls, is located right next door to the Hiroshima Washington Hotel. Okonomiyaki is a savory Japanese pancake and Hiroshima has its own style of okonomiyaki, making this dish an absolute must try when visiting Hiroshima.

We stayed in a triple room that offered a surreal view of Hiroshima. Outside the window we could see the aboveground shopping streets and Okonomi-mura down below. In the distance was what looked like a stream of buildings going into the mountains. It was hard to believe that this stunning city was rebuilt from nothing. 

The room itself was very clean and modern. All bathrooms at the Hiroshima Washington Hotel are composed of two separate rooms, with the toilet and sink in one and a traditional Japanese bathtub and shower area in another. The bathtub was amazing to soak in after a long day of exploring Hiroshima. The hotel also provided great amenities for us to use and offered plenty of utilities to make us feel right at home.

We had the chance to check out a few of Hiroshima Washington Hotel's specialty rooms. The people of Hiroshima have a lot of pride in their home teams, which is reflected in one of the specialty rooms that showcased the local sport teams and symphony. Another specialty room was decorated with iconic Hiroshima attractions, allowing you to "see" Hiroshima without even having to leave the hotel!


The Food

Located on the fourth floor next to the lobby is the hotel's restaurant, Bonjour Plus, which offered an amazing breakfast buffet spread of Japanese and western style dishes. The restaurant is sleek and modern, with plenty of seating for all. Bonjour Plus offers plenty of Hiroshima staples such as Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki and an amazing local mandarin orange juice that we wished we could've purchased to bring home! 

BONJOUR PLUS
Hours: Open Daily 6AM - 10AM (11AM on weekends and holidays)

The outstanding service made us feel confident that the Hiroshima Washington Hotel was the perfect choice of where to stay in Hiroshima.
