I had no problem booking the hotel directly through the internet. My arrival was smoothly handled after a long flight from Heathrow. The room was excellent, only gripe was low volume on the cable TV CNN channel - but the TV-card explained that happened sometimes. Reception of BBC World was fine. The hotel annex has a very large swimming pool + facilities, unfortunately I had no time to try them out.
Tsukuba is called a "science city" but had an interesting collection of shops - on 3 levels - a few minutes walk from the hotel. Managed a trip up Mount Tsukuba from bus station near the hotel.
