I highly recommend this hotel to friends, family or fellow travelers to japan! Extremely clean, friendly staff and great location in regards to public transit, lots of convenient stores in the area and overall very happy with my stay there! My only comment (which is not negative at all) is I wished they had a laundry room to wash clothes as that would have made it the icing to my cake!

One of the Best We’ve Stayed At!
Very, very nice hotel. Goto who worked the front desk was very kind and attentive. So was the other staff. They have free breakfast which is a mix of western and Japanese foods. Simply amazing and I would definitely stay again. Also super close to the train station. Literally across the street with an elevator.
