Stayed here with family in April 2014 and we had an overal good experience, but I see that other people might have some issues : + Language : Even though they market themselves as an 'international hotel', you need to speak some Japanese to find out a lot of things, as their rules are often non straight forward. E.g. they... More

We had an executive room on the 12th floor which had seen better days. The bathroom was standard for this sort of hotel and quite acceptable. There are three restaurants. We... More

Its an average hotel, and its good for one night stay! although they said its one of the best hotel in town, I thought it was just ok. What I found shocking upon arrival, the porters were all women!

I stayed on the executive room in the 13th floor of this hotel recently. I wanted to get my money back, especially I had to pay the executive room rate of approx $200 for the sleepless night! The 13th floor is the top floor for the guest rooms. And there is a restaurant on the 14th floor, right above the... More

A much bigger bed room that expected and a lovely bathroom with an all dancing and singing loo! The Buffett breakfast was excellent catering for both western and Japanese. Lovely warm lounge area. Set in a central area with lots of shops and restaurants near by.
