“A little above average to good”
Reviewed 13 December 2010

Pretty much a typical Japanese city hotel. Small rooms, windows that cannot open, and clean. The Island serves a simple but filling Japanese breakfast as well as some breads for toast. Most staff can speak English quite well and decipher broken Japanese from gaijins like me! In fact, the staff at Island hotel are fantastic in their email correspondence during the booking process...something I found lacking from most other establishments. One negative was the lack of airconditioning....ours didn't seem to work blowing hot air only.

Great location, friendly staff, small (find me one in Japan that isn't!) but clean rooms, at a good price. What's more, the gentleman at the front desk who spoke English gave us a tip for a superb yakiniku restaurant which was the culinary highlight of our trip! They also have a nice onsen as well. Only downside was the breakfast each morning, but there is a Daily a few doors down so it didn't matter. Would definitely recommend this place.
