This had to be an excellent place for our convention. The room was a bit too small for my tastes and the halls were a bit smoky...packed with weddings and such. However, the restaurant in the hotel was excellent! The service at this place was spectacular and very reasonable. Our wait help and restaurant director, Ms. Shiori Furuyama, really took... More

Hotel Francs was an "okay" hotel. Stayed there for the Expo that was held at the convention center. Staff is VERY friendly! The hotel room seemed very small and tight. Over all cleanliness of the room was Good. The rooms seemed a little dated to me, I'm sure that is the theme of the hotel, the "older" style. Breakfast was... More

This hotel was very good. The bed was large and comfortable and the pillows heavenly. Staff were courteous, friendly and helpful (as is usually the case in Japan). My room (1107) had a great sea view but was a little cramped (I had to shift the bed hard up against the wall so I could comfortably sit at my desk.... More

This is a great hotel for people who want to feel like they're in a luxury hotel without feeling self conscious about fitting in. Staff are friendly enough to not be snooty and the hotel is worn down enough to feel comfortable. The rooms were fabulous: we had a dining area with a welcome bowl of fruit, a small fridge,... More

My two friends and myself stayed in this hotel last December and was slightly surprised by how small and cramped the rooms were. However, for me personally, small rooms were okay and natural as small cramped rooms are the norm in Japan. But for those who enjoy large spacious rooms, this hotel is not for you. In terms of location,... More

Stayed here for 2 nites in Jun 2013. The room is compact and clean. Internet is free but only via LAN cable, there is no wifi connection in the hotel. Though the speed is slow and unreliable. The rooms are small compared to the nearby hotel that I has stayed before ( Manhattan and New Otani). Breakfast provided are limited... More

We stayed for 8 nights and had a nice stay throughout. We took superior twin room that came with two 120 beds. Room space was comfortable as we could easily bring in three large suitcases in the room and a baby stroller. Room was very clean. Clean and fresh towels were replaced every single day. No issue with aircon at... More

I stayed at the hotel for a few nights during Foodex. It is very compact, on the booking sites they said that the single rooms was 17 sq m, but I sincerely doubt it, as there was no room around the bed, not even where to unpack your suitcase. Even if you find a place to put your luggage, the... More
