Basic accommodation but very clean with extremely nice and welcoming staff. The little touches such as receiving an ice cream on check in and a vitamin drink on check out really set the hotel apart. A bit tricky to find, taking a taxi could safe a lot hazzle when arriving late. Easy and quick walk (10-15min) to the ferry terminals.

What this hotel lacks in traditional Japanese aesthetic, it more than makes up with outstanding hospitality, staff friendliness, kindness of the owners and the most comprehensive Japanese breakfast ever. Our first impression, when we checked in, was that the front desk area and hotel in general was a bit rough and ready. Not excessively neat and tidy. The ladies at... More

Stayed for 2 nights in this hotel in December 2013 with the partner. Enjoyed the stay and would recommend it to others. PROS - Great value for money with a night in a double costing us around 60 Aus dollars in December 2013. A free breakfast was included (can choose from Western vs Japanese) which was quite delicious and would... More

This centrally located hotel was perfect for those travelling on a bit of a budget. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was delicious but most importantly, the staff were super friendly and incredibly helpful.

This hotel, apart from a very convenient location, also offers superb value for money. Very friendly service as well. We also very much enjoyed their breakfast (again, superb value for money). Highly recommended!

We stayed this hotel for three nights. It's a small and economy hotel. It's not fancy at all, rooms are totally outdated. Yet, we all LOVED this hotel. We travel a lot and stayed many hotels from economy to luxurious ones. However, no hotels could match the hospitality they offer at this hotel. They made us feel welcomed. Breakfast was... More

we stayed in this hotel in high season, though O-Bon was already over and were very satisfied. Not far from the central Mall still like a family house. Maybe the only disadvantage that some rooms are a bit outdated and no distinction between smoking and non-smoking room can embarrass some. Still staff is very kind and hospitable and seeks to...

The Hotel is close to the business centre of the City. The breakfast is traditional Japanese ones nd is very nice. But you can order the western style one. The room facilities is not the modern one and the bathroom is tiny and westerners may find it hard to adapt. Nevertheless, for a family of three, it will be a... More
