I just needed one night and didn't want to spend a fortune. This worked well for me. The room was very small but clean and comfortable. It had an old faint odor of tobacco smoke but I overcame that. The shared bath/onsen downstairs was clean and the water was hot. the toilet was just down the hall. I'm not sure if there were any males on my floor.
The staff were friendly and spoke good English. I think the rooms had Wifi but I didn't have a laptop, so I used the public computers downstairs and they were fine.
Very close to Spa World, the JR train station (Shin-Imamiya) and subway Dobutsenmae.
The area isn't the best but i felt fine there during the day; many hostel type accommodations.More
