Okay Accomodations - Watch Out for Construction
The staff was very accommodating. The hotel emailed me less than a week before our trip to inform me that they would be preforming construction work on the grounds and that there would be noise and no hot tub available. Certainly they knew this well in advance of me booking my room that there was going to be construction and no hot tub; I found this deceptive. They did provide free passes to several of the local hot springs/spas in compensation. There were no clothes washers or driers available for guests use and no air conditioning. In my opinion, the entire exterior of the place could have used a coat of paint/stain to spruce it up a bit.

Fair 4.0
Good location, poor service and rooms
While the hotel is well located, the maintenance in the room is bad. Mold coming out of a light fixture, no A/C, poor WiFi, poor TV signal, not much breakfast choices.

Nice place to stay
Great place to stay, very close to city center and any other sign seeing locations. There is construction going on but it was not noisy. They provide passes for hot spring. Staff are nice and helpful, room was clean, only better to have newer coffee machine in the room and fridge. The bath tub was leaking under but in general it’s comfortable place to stay.
