The best value Dormy Inn Hotels ドーミーイン

If you’re on a mid-range budget (means you are not looking for the cheapest options but still don’t want to spend hundreds of euro’s on a hotel), the Dormy Inn Hotels are highly recommendable. Even though rooms are often small, there are other reasons that make us go there over and over again:

  • Often, they are situated close to train stations which makes it very convenient for train travel or in cities downtown centre, so that you can easily go and grab some food and drinks or enjoy the nightlife.
  • There is a free serving of Yonaki soba noodles (light ramen in shoyu) in their restaurant between 21:30-23:00.  Latecomers (after 23:00) can request a free cup noodle and you get the same if you choose not to replace your towels and bed linnen from 2 nights. 
  • There is free coffee at the lobby, usually after 14:00 but sometimes in the morning as well (times vary between hotels).

Onsen indoor and outdoor

The most important reason which makes Dormy Inns different from other chain hotels like the Toyoko Inn, Tokyu Rei, Daiwa Roynet  ect is that in 99% of the case they come with an indoor and outdoor onsen area. It is free to use, from your check-in time till midnight or sometimes longer. There is no better thing than go and soak into the onsen after a long walk in the city or a day hiking trip. On rainy days  it can be a great place to spend time. Some Dormy Inns even use natural sources pumped from the ground. 

The hotels are scattered around all Japan. Check the whole list of hotels on their site.
