Top Quality Comfort and Location
The Miyajima Grand Arimoto has a perfect location close to the prime attractions, but away from the crowds. They graciously upgraded us from a standard twin to a beautiful western & Japanese suite. Everything in the room was top quality. They provided shuttle service to & from the ferry. We loved being in Miyajima in the mornings and evenings without the crowds.

A gem on a beautiful island
I stayed for two nights which gives you the opportunity to see the sights both morning and evening without many other tourists. The hotel really surprised my with it's warm welcome, personal host (english speaking) to help me settle in, serve the traditional dinner and likewise breakfast. Rooms are spacious and at the same time really traditional and simply furnished. The view from my room (307) over the bay was scenic - day and night! God for the traditional dinner and experience top-quality, traditional Japanese food. But be aware that fish and seefood including the delicious Oysters from the bay are high on the agenda. This was really great - and the dinner is changed every night. The traditional Japanese breakfast was good too, but if you don't fancy rice, fish, oyester and miso for breakfast there is a western style option which I don't know the quality of! All sights are literally around the corner and the rope way to Mt Misen 20 min walk away (or the shuttle 5 min away). A must visit too which an overnight stay would allow for! Finally, remember to visit the onsen at the hotel. Clothing is optional (I didn't see anyone in swimming trunks) and the bath is not a mixed-gender bath. Tattoos are not allowed. This was really above my expectation and I'm looking forward to an opportunity to revisits

Lovely stay in a lovely setting
I generally prefer smaller ryokan off the beaten path, but that's hard to do in Miyajima. This was a lovely alternative. The hotel is conveniently located to the temple and walking town, although you wouldn't think so from the van ride once you get off the ferry. The roads go around the core area of town, so it seems like it is much further away. But do not despair! Once you are at the hotel, you can exit on the lower level and be steps from most of the major areas of Miyajima. The meals were typically over-the-top as one expects in a ryokan. I regret we didnt get to eat in our room, but the separate dining area for dinner was still private. Breakfast was, like most ryokan, in a common room which was fine, too. The onsen was fine, with a well appointed changing and bathing area. The outdoor rotemburo is tiny (barely 4 people can sit in it at once. But hours of access were good. We had 6 women in our party and were given a mixed room -- big tatami area and two full size beds. It was huge - plenty of room for even more people. The only downside is only one toilet for that many people means a queue, but it was tolerable.

Wonderful overnight stay
Had a magnificent one-night stay during mid-November to see the island, Itsukushima shrine and the fall colors. Booked a non-smoking Japanese style room w/private rotemburo (open air bath) facing the shrine, with breakfast and dinner. Expensive (almost $1k) as this was during a peak time (fall), but I was willing to splurge as staying overnight on Miyajima is necessary to get the most out of a visit here. Hotel is located very close to Itsukushima shrine, just one block up the hill by the fire department. Arrival/Check-in: After calling from the ferry terminal the hotel shuttle arrived about 15 minutes later. It took a winding road thru the hills w/dropoff behind and above the hotel. Staff handled bags but we had to descend a flight of steps to reach the (back) door and lobby (not sure if wheelchair accessible; access to the front of hotel also involves stairs). We checked our bags and returned for check-in after 3pm. After retrieving our bags, a woman dressed in kimono showed us the hotel and took us to our room. There, oshibori (hot hand towels), matcha, fresh fruit, and local momiji manju were provided for refreshment while she finished the check-in and explained everything we needed to know about the room. Note: It's very helpful to speak at least some Japanese - the lady who showed us our room spoke no English, and there was a lot to go over. She was very patient and gracious, but without knowing basic Japanese I would probably have been lost. (However, the staff at the front desk spoke sufficient English, as did the shuttle bus driver, so don't be totally put off if you don't speak Japanese. Or, consider renting a pocket translator from companies that sell portable Wi-Fi that you can pay for online and pick up at airports.) Rooms: The room/suite (#501) had a large living/bedroom with a table and Japanese-style seats (without legs), a sitting room w/view, a small room with vanity, plus a toilet room, washroom, bathroom w/wood tub, and a private balcony with wooden soaking tub. The living room had traditional decor, with tatami mat floor and a tokonoma (alcove) with hanging scroll and ikebana (flower arrangement), but also a flat screen TV on another wall. The sitting room was western style, with chairs, a coffee table, carpeting, and a stereo player, coffee/tea maker and fridge. Rooms were separated by sliding shoji doors. Bedding was stored in closets that blended seamlessly into the walls for a clean look. Upon returning from dinner, the table had been removed from the living/bedroom and replaced with futon beds. The beds and pillows were a little on the hard side, but the comforter was very soft and warm. Bath: The toilet automatically opens when you open the door and has the usual built-in bidet, etc. The wash room had two sinks, large mirror, and lots of towels. The bathroom had both a wooden tub for soaking; you bathe outside the tub by sitting on the stool and rinsing using the flexible hose. Bath soap/shampoo were provided. Out on the enclosed balcony, the outdoor wooden tub with view was the highlight for me. It's controlled by a switch inside; heated water pours out of a faucet and into the tub. The tub area provides privacy while letting you enjoy the view, but you can lower shades for even more privacy. The tub isn't quite big enough to fit two adults comfortably, but you'll probably want its heavenly bliss all for yourself anyway. Extras: Yukatas and tabi (Japanese socks) were provided for wearing around the room/hotel, as were slippers for venturing outside the room. Each guest got a personal toiletry kit, and lots of towels were provided. One towel was specifically provided per guest for the public bath, which we didn't use as we had our own bath. We did not use the hotel Wi-Fi. Food: We chose Japanese meals, and the food was exquisite. Dinner was kaiseki cuisine focused on seafood including local specialties such as oysters and abalone. My crustacean allergy was accommodated with no problem (I had notified them ahead of time). Breakfast was traditional Japanese style, with many delightful small dishes. I love this style of eating - for me, the variety of dishes complementing each other more than makes up for any perceived lack of quantity. Check-out was quick and the shuttle took us back to the ferry terminal. Note, there is only one shuttle so you may have to wait for it to return - about 20 minutes at most. Overall, an unforgettable experience in an iconic location.

Lovely stay at Miyajima Grand Hotel Arimoto
I selected Miyajima Grand because of its close proximity to Itsukushima Shrine and the Great Torii Gate and I didn’t regret it. There was a courtesy bus that picked us up at the ferry terminal and they kindly dropped us off when we left three days later even though it was really early in the morning. We booked a room of the torii gate, though it wasn’t a clear view, it helped when we wanted to head there in the wee hours of the morning when the tide was low. Through the back entrance, the hotel was about five mins walk away - how much more convenient can it be. It was also close to the ropeway which I went to on Day 2. View from Mt Misen was great and after the descent down, the best reward was the soak in the hot tub with the lovely view out. Breakfast and dinner were included and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals there. The staff were excellent and made our stay a great one. Would definitely return and highly recommend this hotel.
