We were very pleased with this hotel, but the thing that stands out the most is the service! The reception staff were all very friendly and able to communicate in English. This in itself is awesome, but I found that they went above and beyond. We needed to laundry on our first night, and one of the receptionists actually came... More

Great location, friendly staff, small (find me one in Japan that isn't!) but clean rooms, at a good price. What's more, the gentleman at the front desk who spoke English gave us a tip for a superb yakiniku restaurant which was the culinary highlight of our trip! They also have a nice onsen as well. Only downside was the breakfast... More
