The hotel is located right next to the dock, and the main street of Naha is 15-20 minutes away on foot. The airport was about 20 minutes away by monorail (plus a 10 minute walk there). The location fit us well - we were close to most sights that we wanted to see and close to public transportation. The breakfast was good and it was available until 9:30, so we didn't have to get up early like in some places.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. We arrived in Naha two days earlier than expected because of a typhoon, and naturally everything was a bit hectic then. The staff helped us by moving our luggage from one to another while we were away for the day (we had to stay in another room the first night), and helped us get our money back because both us and our travel agency had ended up paying for the two extra nights (every hotel would have done this, but they were just so nice about it and helpful).
The only negative thing I have to say is that the ventilation in the rooms is quite bad. If you'd showered in the morning and came back later that day the room would feel like a greenhouse. We solved this by setting our door ajar when we were in the room to get the fresh air from the hallway inside the room and that quickly made the air quality better. Other than that, the room was very comfortable. It was small, like most japanese hotel rooms, but we had room to keep both our medium sized luggages open and still be able to move around.
