Best Luxury Hotels In Hiroshima

Much of Hiroshima’s tourism is of course focused on the story of the city’s infamous nuclear bomb; it’s a place that reminds its visitors of the ways in which the past must never be repeated. A frequent stop on bucket list trips across Japan, the area has emerged (after being mostly razed to the ground) as a modern metropolis and ambassador of peace, with much to offer in the way of history, but also as a burgeoning luxury destination. Unmissable attractions include the Atomic Bomb Dome, Hiroshima Peace Museum and the Peace Park, Hiroshima Castle and Shukkei-en Garden.

Hilton Hiroshima

(4 stars)

The Hilton places you just five minutes on foot from the Peace Park and ten minutes from the vibrant Heiwa-Odori district. Contemporary bedrooms and suites have views that include the Miyajima Islands, Ogonzan Mountains, the ocean and the city skyline and all offer the brand’s Sweet Dreams Sleep Experience (serenity beds, signature bedding, blackout blinds and pillow menus). Flexible workstations ensure the property is popular with business travellers. Plus you’ll find four stylishly designed places to eat and drink onsite: Flow Lounge, Sensui (for sushi, teppanyaki and kaiseki by a Michelin-starred chef), Mosaik and Zatta.

Miyajima Kinsuikan

(4 stars)

A highlight of this establishment are the onsen baths, filled with natural saltwater from hot springs that lie deep beneath its surface. Here you can soak in minerals as the warmth eases your muscles — both male and female bathing areas are provided, as well as yukata (robes). This is a 39 bedroom ryokan (typically Japanese) hotel, where guests can sleep either on beds or on traditional futons amongst minimalist surroundings. Additionally, there’s a full-service spa, a pretty garden, a terrace and the in-house restaurant, Mametanuki. Miyajima Kinsuikan is a top choice if you’d like to experience an authentic slice of Japanese life.
