Our initial impression was good because the lobby and rooms were modern and clean. Bathtub was huge. Free amenities like shaving kit, shower cap, cotton buds, bath gel/shampoo, toothbrush and paste (only one set) and bedroom slippers (only one pair) were provided. Breakfast was so so only. Staff were polite enough. Location was great, just 3 minutes walk from Nagoya Hill with plenty of good and cheap eateries, good and bad spas and shopping. Bed was firm and comfy. Strong shower.
But moderate your expectations. Wi-Fi was constantly unstable in the rooms (we had 2 rooms at the end of the corridor). We had to either stand at the door or outside the rooms to get connection. Pool is very small and at 1.2metres deep, it encourages people to soak and chat rather than swim. And if there are kids with huge float, well...it's invaded.
Overall not bad but I would like to try a different hotel in town than return.
