A large city, Nagasaki has a range of options. There are the ubiquitous three and four star business hotels and one or two upmarket glitzy options - nothing terribly characterful, as it's not on the itinerary for many overseas visitors. Indeed, most who do visit come on cruise ships (and stay on cruise ships) as Nagasaki is the closest port to mainland Asia - South Korea and China.

One hotel we've stayed in often and always enjoy is the Hotel Monterey.
