Value for money 3 star hotel with great amenities and excellent staff
Price: 9000 yen
I was very impressed with the Kofu branch of the hotel chain Dormy Inn. I've stayed in a couple of other Dormy Inn hotels, but this is the only one that gets five stars from me. For a 3 star hotel it is an excellent choice for an overnight stay.
What impressed me most was the professionalism yet friendliness of the staff, who were extremely helpful even though they had 10 foreign women to contend with! And although the lady I talked to did not speak English, she tried her best with the bit she had and lots of gestures and warm facial expressions. She also provided us with pamphlets for the area in English and a basic information leaflet for the hotel in English too. Within the hotel there is an onsen (hotspring) on the top floor with a rotemburo (outdoor bath) which has a great view of Mt Fuji, on a clear day. There are massage chairs and a very small library room beside the onsen that you can borrow books from freely. Rooms are clean and quite modern, but really quite small. They provide multiple chargers in each room for free, for every type of device. They have free wifi too. There are vending machines for drinks. Breakfast is buffet style and they have a good choice, presented in a bright airy room with sufficient seating. The lifts were quite busy; probably a good reflection of the popularity of the hotel. Overall I had a very pleasant experience and would definitely stay there again.
It is not too far from the station, about a 12 minute walk. There are a lots of shops and restaurants nearby.
