Dormy Inn Kagoshima
We love Dormy Inns! Our director James is an absolute stickler for detail and luxury, but he would happily spend an entire Japan trip in these hotels. The rooms are compact, the exteriors are nondescript and the public areas although smart are not luxurious. So what's the draw? Well a big part of it is the hot spring bath houses on the top floor of each Dormy Inn hotel, and the one in Kagoshima is no exception. In fact, the ones here are a particularly generous size with indoor and outdoor baths that are perfect to relax and unwind in Japanese-style at the end of a day hiking around Sakurajima volcano in Kagoshima. Cleanliness and service standards anywhere in Japan are high, but Dormy Inn staff are particularly welcoming and helpful as the market moves away from Japanese businessmen and towards foreign visitors. And the variety at breakfast with around fifty different Western and Japanese dishes to choose from will suit any palate. It's ideal for a short city stay.
