    Very good central location. Didn't like the hot airless room - would have liked to be able to open the window even a little

    Comfortable, new, well located hotel.

    Comfy beds - two in our room - but neither was a full double. No big deal they were much bigger than singles so we squeezed into one bed. Very good wifi. Central location. No complaints

    Great location!

    I loved the hotel! The location was just out of the way so it wasn’t near too much, but close enough that the subways and shopping was just less than 5 minutes away! Loved the beds and loved everything about the place!

  • 8.0.Very good

    For Japan standards, the beds were larger than normal. We had another bed added to make three beds in the room. Beds were cozy enough and not too stiff. The sheets and comforter soft to the touch. Breakfast would be considered spartan but works. Location is excellent. Being dead center in the middle of the city has its perks with restaurants and shopping. 7-11 is just steps away from the hotel too. A nice amenity is the coin op laundry on the 4th floor. The main heritage sites will are roughly 7-10 km away and while it may seem really close will easily take 45-60 min using bus or metro. Not an issue if you plan to stay at least two nights.
