It's a good hotel, nice rooms (not very big but in Japan even rooms in houses are small!), very clean and nice sushi restaurant downstairs. No room service and very few people speak English!!! Even at the reception they can't speak English. Otherwise nice people working at the hotel...if you're able to communicate!!
