As most posters say, the location is great - opposite the station and close to the main sights. The hotel is basic. Rooms are very small - double bed against the wall and small bathrooms. And I mean small! Flimsy door cards that are only issued one per room. Beds are very, very firm indeed. The decoration is certainly vintage... More

The rooms were small but that's usual in Japan. The worst was the mattress which was horrible giving me backaches. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone since there are plenty other staying options

Although this hotel have restaurant, it only serve breakfast but that's not a problem as there are plenty of restaurants nearby although you might want to go... More

This is a very charming hotel because time has stopped here. I think they have not made any chances since the hotel was build.  Check in was quick and easy. The room was spacious enough and very clean. From 10 am to 10 pm you can listen to classical music in your room from the radio which is integrated to... More

The most unpleasant hotel that I ever stayed at in Japan. Checked out one day early. The front office staff were cold and unfriendly. For the price that I have paid for which was higher than hotels of same facilities it's really over priced. Very small uninviting room and the worst part was breakfast was not included. Certainly wouldn't recommend... More

If you need something central this is for location. A short walk away to all the good Hida beef restuarants in the surrounds. Also alot of local places to frequent. We checked in at about 1:30 pm and was helped quickly, got my package for the pocket wi-fi delivered to the front desk and that was also helpful. No need... More

Location is good being just across the road from the station. Everything else is OK but not special. Internet is free and good, towels are very thin, rooms are quiet, breakfast OK. That just about sums it up, everything is OK but nothing is special. I would look elsewhere.

Directly opposite railway & bus stations & when its cold & snowing a good place to stay as the rooms are spotless every day, compact & basic but everything you need. Rooms are very quiet, beds on hard side, but good, deep bath. Very clean bedding, but typical Japanese pillows, so if that's a problem roll up some soft clothes.... More
