The best place to stay in Hiroshima is the Hiroshima Washington Hotel, which happens to be right in the heart of 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 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!
