8/10 Very good

Old and faded with a couple nice amenities
My first impression was disappointment in the room. The carpet was very worn and stained, the furnishings worn and dated. Hardly “Royal”. However, there is a nice onsen onnpremisesand a large and delicious breakfast buffet. Two minutes o then Kintetsu station and one minute to Tourist Information.
