My experience of the Toyoko Inn chain is that they are great value for money. This one (nearer the castle) was no exception. They are modern, carry a happy atmosphere and manned by very charming people. Functional with a small launderette and include free breakfast in their low price. I joined their " club" on check-in for yen 1500 which gives discounts on certain nights and early booking and check in. I saved yen 1600 on the Sunday night stay, 20% off the regular price. For a net Yen 6,400 (£52) we stayed in a deluxe double room ( fridge, tv, safe etc) with a king size bed. Fantastic !!
We are using the same chain on another few nights on our 4 week tour across wonderful Japan.
The hotel is a 100 metres from a vast arcade of shops that run near to the famous castle. Lawsons convenience store is opposite. The tram system with A and B lines is simple to use. Yen 150 for any journey length. Straight out of the railway station into the tram car. About 8 stops or 8 minutes to the arcade entrance and 5 minute walk to the hotel.Pick up a map and info at the railway station.
Do visit the famous Suizen gardens as well as the castle. Both ancient and beautiful. Take the tram.
