After a whole day of driving from Kumamoto to Shimabara (via ferry) to Nagasaki, I was eager to get to my hotel to rest. I dropped off my parents, grandmother and our luggage at the lobby before going to the 24 hours multistory parking lot across the river to park the car. Like my previous hotel in Kumamoto, the parking lot had a partnership with the hotel to give guests a flat rate of JPY1,000 per entrance from 1pm to 10am.
Nagasaki Washington hotel is located next to Chinatown and a short walk away from Hamamachi shopping arcade. The Shinchi Chinatown tram stop is just a stone's throw away from the hotel, making it very easy to access the rest of the city and hit the main attractions like the Megamebashi bridge and Suwa-ji Shrine.
The famous man made Dejima Island is also just a 5 minutes walk away. If you're lucky, you can also catch a glimpse of the Mount Inasayama Observatory all lighted up at night from the pedestrian bridge in front of the hotel. To get there, it's a 30 minutes drive from the hotel. If you're travelling to Fukuoka or Saga prefecture, the exit to the expressway is very close by and easy to access from the hotel.
I booked Nagasaki Washington Hotel via Booking.com at JPY28,800 for two nights for two rooms and if I were to go back to Nagasaki with a car, this hotel is on my immediate place to book.
