Report - Traveler’s House on the Route
- On the Route welcomes travelers to Nagasaki with affordable yet cozy and stylish accommodation around the corner from Nagasaki Station. Perched on a hill overlooking the iconic St. Phillipo Church, it is a refreshing inn with all the characteristics of a cool hostel mixed with the perks and familiar feeling of a guesthouse. The inn is set in a three-storey art deco building, On the Route is both an inn and a cafe for guests and the general public alike. The cafe on the 2nd floor doubles as the inn’s front desk and is the welcoming point. Once the formalities are taken care of, you are helped up the stairs by the hospitable staff to your “dormitory” room. On the Route labels its accommodation as deluxe cabin-style dorms, which is actually pretty close to reality. The dormitories are actually large-sized capsules that feel more like a private room; a very small private room but big enough to leave you space for a small suitcase and a bit of extra legroom. The futon beds are very comfortable here. For one person, the space is quite cozy and a stay of several days is quite doable if you wish to do so. Traveler's House on the ROUTE As with other inns/guesthouses in Japan, On the Route is a great place if you want interact with other guests. The sleeping area has a dining area equipped with a small kitchen where you can prepare a quick meal. This creates the chance to talk with other guests who will most likely be doing the same during their stay. If you are not much of a cook while on the road, the 2nd floor cafe is open from 11am to 6pm Tuesday to Saturday, offering a varying breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, and cafe drinks. Being open to the public, it also provides a good chance to meet the local crowd. Traveler's House on the ROUTE Besides its high-standard accommodation, one area in which On the Route excels in is giving travel recommendations and useful tips to its guests. From the start, guests are given an animated traveler’s map with detailed recommendations on sights and local food. Around the building you will also find a vast amount of Nagasaki-related information, and even alternative activities for rainy days. In the age of smartphones it might seem unnecessary, but these little details can make you stay extra special. Traveler's House on the ROUTE ©NAVITIME JAPAN.
