The hotel is just 5min walk from the JR station. The hotel has a nice restuarant at ground level , otherwise, you may explore for more optional around the premises. The only thing I don't like about this hotel is the walk into the alley from the station - is pretty dark at night though. No kettle in the room... More

Of course this hotel is just a budget... More

So you don't have to worry.... More

Some of the staff did not bother to smile to you at all when u passing by or return back to hotel. The... More
