We paid USD 140,- for one night (does not sound cheap but you are in Japan...), I suppose we got what we paid for.
The hotel is nothing exceptional with small rooms, however :
- staff is friendly and smiling
- the hotel is clean
- it is located not too far from the train station (accessible on foot or with the shuttle bus - friendly driver).
Flip side : rooms are small but you are in a large Japanese city so this is not surprising, the lift is small and there is only one, so you may need to be patient. We did not try the bath but they mentioned it is men-only during weekdays so if your wife is dying to hang around naked in public, find another place. Not sure about how they deal during the weekends (there may be some slots for men and others for women)
Upon arrival, it was raining cats and dogs so we chose to catch a cab, the cab driver loved France and obviously learnt over there how to turn around the streets in order to have a better price on the meter (for him, not for us) so we ended paying slightly over JPY 1,000.- which is clearly a rip-off but show you that, even by taking lengthy detours, the hotel is close to the station, which is why we chose it. Note that I do not blame the hotel for our crook cab driver!
As a conclusion, I would still recommend the hotel if you need to spend one night close to the station (we landed in Nagoya at 8 p.m. and took the shuttle to the train station at 7:05 a.m. on the next day) but not if you wish to have a few days touristic or romantic experience in Nagoya.
