We stayed in JR Miyazaki Hotel for five nights in end November 2018. The hotel is on the 8/F- 13/F of a commercial building, entrance not very conspicuous. Ample of parking spaces at the adjacent carpark. The hotel has a strategic location next to JR Miyazaki station and local transportation hub, with a few eateries, Lawson Convenience Store, Tourist Information Office and Aeon supermarket nearby. 10% off coupon for the souvenir shop at the ground floor available at the front desk. Ten to fifteen minutes walking distance to the vibrant Tachibana Dori. The room was, same as other JR hotels, cosy but clean and spotless. The receptionists were polite and helpful. We made a number of requests such as additional pillows, enquiries about locations of restaurants and shopping mall, booking of taxi and Kirishima hop-on hop-off coach etc which were accomplished immediately.
Despite so close to the railway we heard no irritating noise during our stay. Very steady WiFi all through our stay. A lot of TV channels though all Japanese-speaking. The bathroom is very spacious, with both space for shower and bathtub, never seen in other JR hotels that we stayed before. Customer-focused facilities such as laundrette, microwave oven, ice making machine and vending machine on both 10/F and 12/F. A business centre and a restaurant which offers breakfast and light meals attached to the reception at 8/F. During our stay there was a JR Hotel member recruitment campaign. We signed up and was given an hour's extended stay upon check-out.
At this price range the hotel is definitely of great value. Highly recommended for families, business travellers and those who seek convenience in transportation. However, for those looking for night life, shops, restaurants and bars, hotels located at Tachibana Dori would be an alternative.
