We booked on-line through booking.com.
The only advantage of this hotel is that it is close to the station.
Rooms are ultra-small, bathrooms a cubicle where we couldn't stay upright and the beds almost the size of a baby cot.
A 120 cm wide bed is considered a 'normal' double bed! When pointing out that we are two grown up men and that we never ever slept in something that tiny we got 'upgraded' to a room with a 140 cm wide double bed (still quite small). Of course we had to pay for the difference since the room was considered standard superior (those 20 cm difference increased the price of more than 1/3). Receptionist lacks professional skills, his English VERY poor and breakfast average at its best. We have been travelling more than three weeks in Japan and this was the worst experience accommodation-wise.
