This is a modern hotel geared to the business person in an ideal location. One entrance is at the ground level, a second on the floor above just a minute's walk past the entry to the platforms of the Yamagata Station. We had free wifi, a very clean modern room with excellent bath and toilet, comfortable bed, and about all... More

We selected the hotel because of its location, it's attached to the Yamagata train station and the rental car office was across from the hotel. Good size room, comfy beds and pillows, good size bathroom, great shower and ample amenities like toothbrushes, toothpaste, razor, hairbrush, etc. Friendly staff at check-in desk, few English speaking staff, but all trying their best...

Stayed here for 3 nights on business. Best location because it is connected to the JR station. Supermarkets nearby and friendly staff. Everything you may want is in the room. Good view from the hotel seeing the mount Zao. Also, if the heat is too hot, you may even open the small window for some fresh air.

The hotel is physically attached to the train station but it does not feel like a 'station hotel'. It is light and airy and... More

Stayed two nights for the trip to Yonezawa and Ginzan Onsen. Ideal stop over that fits a three days visit to the Yamagata region. The hotel is located in the building of the train station and you don't need to go out to the street to look for it. Rate is little high but rooms are very spacious ,with two... More

Saw an ad for this place inside the train station, and is really is a solid business hotel. Good staff, good location, has its own breakfast service, and a great price for a pretty decent room. Definitely recommended.
