“far from the city center, well worn room”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2011

had a dispointing stay at this hotel. As soon as you see the interior, you can tell the room's old age. The carpet is worn out and even has a huge hole fixed with tape. The old lampshade cracked. To turn on the main power, you have to put the key in a slot beside the bed, instead of the door. what an inconvenient design.The advangtage of this hotel is its spa facility, which is fun and relaxing.

Stayed June 2011, travelled with friends

I list our CONs first,

The first thing we noticed was the bathroom had a strong urine smell. I think this was partly due to poor cleaning but the odour seemed to come from the bath area which was separated by a door...if you know Japanese bathrooms.

The rooms seemed quite outdated which may reflect why the price is relatively low by Japanese standards. One thing we found surprising was the lack of air conditioning in the room. I would not recommend staying here in the summer. They had some heat buttons to control the central heating but only a small wall fan to bring it a little fresh cool air. We found the room a little too warm during our stay. Rooms had TV, fridge, hot water thermos, tea, yukata, slippers, free toiletries and .... a collection of neo-conservative writings promoted by Motoya Toshio, head of the hotel chain (http://www.japanfocus.org/-Herbert_P_-Bix/2945). Since this is a hotel review I won't go into the content of the magazine but Caucasians might not feel comfortable after reading some of the stuff they have there. I'm surprised that Korean and Chinese tourists stay here. I suspect they're on tours and don't read the stuff in the rooms (Japanese and English). They might not agree with Motoya's interpretation of history...but I'm getting off track ...

PRO's
The price was reasonable about 6000 yen per person per night included a good buffet breakfast.

Staff were friendly and provided good service. Hotel had a nice onsen so you don't have to use the room's bath :-(
