The hotel is situated on the hill with a view of the city. I cannot call it a nice view, but it's a view of an open space, there could be a wall or a building there. It is about 20-30 min taxi ride to Nagoya shopping mall. The hotel does offer complimentary shuttle service, which was very welcome. It's a very average hotel that is stuck somewhere in the 80s-90s era with it's decor and ambiance. It really needs an update, got to freshen up.
Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Room was nice and clean, nothing special with a view of the city and a pool. Pool has a view of a parking lot...not very appealing.
There seemed to be an attempt at some renovation in the room, cracks on the walls were plastered and painted over. But paint was a tone lighter than the rest of the room. Bathroom was slightly moldy in the corners with cracked tiles. Breakfast was not very good, choice was very limited and food was not very tasty.
All in all, I suppose it was value for money but very average value.
