I stayed a few nights on business in Seta. It's a very good value choice if you need somewhere to sleep, is right by Seta station, and opposite the bus station. I found the rooms to be spotlessly clean and about the same size as any Japanese business hotel. There is a free breakfast buffet with a Japan-style continental breakfast... More

I booked one night at the Smile Hotel based on it's three star status on the Agoda website and its photos representing a clean and spacious looking room.

Expensive, and SMALL room. Breakfast is miserable amount. Location is so-so. Luckily for a 100-yen shop nearby for some good buys haha. Hotel staff is friendly enough, but the accommodation is nothing to laud about.

Also, each room has free internet access (wired),... More

Most rooms in this hotel are of a semi-double bed. When this room is sold as a single room, it is at a reasonable size, clean, with internet and so on. But when it is sold as a double room, it is VERY narrow. Breakfast is also VERY basic. There are some restaurants, convenience shops and a supermarket nearbye. The... More
