“Simple budget hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

I spent one night here during my Tokyo-Aomori trip via local JR train.
This is no-frill typical Japanese 'Business-hotel' and has the advantage of easy access to JR station.
One 24hr open convenience store is in 3 min walking distance.

Hotel facilities are somewhat old fashioned but LCD TV, Internet and fridge are installed.

Discounted breakfast coupon can be purchased at checkin, but menu is limited. So I recommend to get bread or sandwich and coffee at convenience store. Kiosk in Jr station is also open from morning to evening and has selection of light meals, snacks and beverages.

Stayed March 2014, traveled solo

This was our first visit to shonai & our japnese friend book this hotel for us. This is very near to railway station. Room was tinny as usually in Japan but neat & clean.Room was small to move in room was impossible.Speed of internet connection was also very slow.
we have to stay here for two days & for budget purpose it is good choise for stay.As we are veggie so in morning breakfast option was very few. One room cost you around 5000 yen.
so overall nice not great experience.
