Very friendly helpful staff. The linens and bathroom were clean and the location and price worked for us. We were only there for a one night stay enroute to other places. We did not have ykmd to explore the town but wish we could have seen the historic old town which looked really interesting. Great location right by the station where there are places to eat.
This is an older hotel and a bit down at the heels. Fine for a night if you are not picky but not somewhere you would want to hang out.
Room is so tiny that it is FUNNY how tiny it is, the shower room is larger than room and bed. But the price is really low and very central great location by the station, very safe, the lobby has a sitting area with a microwave oven to heat up some food and hot water to make your coffee. They even offer sleeping wear Yukata and bath items dryer everything, room even has a tv so given how incredibly small it is, they are doing their best with the rest, very clean too. You can leave the luggage until your train/bus connection all very safe and polite. Would stay again, very good value for the very low price in expensive Japan.
One nasty person was skateboarding jumping again and again outside somewhere late past midnight and you were praying they fall and break their neck so that you can finally go to sleep too.
The receptionist man was a legend. So friendly and went out of his way to help. He was up to check us in at 10pm, and to check us out at 7am. Room entrances are LOW, and while you may think the room doors are better for a jail, the rooms themselves are comfortable clean and quiet.
Room entrances are LOW. Everything could use a good bit of paint.
The location was great - very close to the station. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's cheap (yet not good-value-for money - see below).
I live in Japan and have travelled here a lot. I am therefore used to small rooms. But this was beyond anything I have experienced before. I travel with a very small case and there was not room to open it and get into the bathroom. I therefore needed to close my case every time I went in the bathroom. The bed felt coffin like. After just two nights at this hotel, I had a real sense of claustrophobia. I would say the room size is about half of the usual very-small-room size in Japan. Furthermore, I found several long hairs in my bed sheets and in the bathroom. I think this hotel is quite far below the usual Japanese business/cheap hotel standards and yet about the same price. It is the least pleasant hotel I have stayed in through 15 years of travelling in Japan. It's not awful but it is very poor by Japanese standards.
It was near the station
The room was not "a room" - it was simply a single bed stuffed into barely enough space for a single bed: a bed which was not even easily accessible. The bathroom seemed bigger than the room itself. Staff called the room while I was taking a shower - and when I didn't answer proceeded to start calling my cellphone...all simply because "worried" that checkout time was approaching and I hadn't checked out yet. The check out time is the check out time. Of the many hotels I have ever stayed in, never in my life have I been bothered by staff in this way: and no this is not "normal" for Japan, where I have lived for over 15 years. If you are a tourist, don't stay here with any expectations of Japanese "omotenashi": this "hotel" is a disgrace even to the description "business hotel".
