ホテルを選ぶ際、水まわりがきれいそうなところを選んでいます。 今回もバスとシャワーが別なところに惹かれてこちらに宿泊しました。 お風呂も広く、ベッドも大きくとても快適でした。 床に荷物をおきたくないので、荷物置きがあったらいいなとおもいました。 また、洗面器が二つありましたが、片方が栓がしたままになっており、開けようとおもいましたが開け方がわからず結果片方の洗面器しか使えませんでした。 朝食はとても美味しかったです。 ハンバーガーを選びました。

場所は駅から10分ちょっとかかり消して良いとは言えない立地ですが、東寺が近く、バスは便利です。 スタッフも部屋の広さも最高でした。お風呂も広くゆったりできます。下ねカフェが美味しく、ルームサービスにもできるので、お部屋でゆったり飲めます。
