Stayed in standard non-smoking twin room overlooking wonderful garden and mountains in distance. Staff were extremely courteous, friendly and had limited (but suffient) knowledge of English. Room was very quiet. Bed was nice and comfortable. Bathroom was well equipped, including deep bath. Room amenities included safe, hot water kettle, tea, coffee and fridge stocked with couple of cans each of complementary soda, beer and water. TV was limited to Japan language only. There was no iron or ironing board. Free internet was available through wired connection (cat 5 cable included). Wi-Fi was not available in any rooms (certainly not 5th floor) and according to front desk only available in lobby area. In either case, internet was somewhat slow. However, real down-side to the hotel were the expensive restaurants, especially dinner ; most likely a function of poor exchange rate with US dollar. Depending on the restuarant you could easily spend $75-125 per person for dinner and a couple of drinks.
Overall, very good hotel if you need to be in walking distance of Akishima, but look to venture out for dinner if you are trying to save a few $$$.
