“Good hotel, Great Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

When I first arrived, things looked bad. I somehow got a smoking room when I needed a non-smoking one. The room did smell strongly of smoke, I could not handle it. When I requested a room change I was worried because the hotel was full (lots going on that weekend). Somehow, they were able to find me a non-smoking room. THAT room smelled fine, was clean, small, and efficient. The bed was comfortable, it was easy to adjust the room temperature, the water was hot, and overall, I had a good stay at the hotel. They even provided me a feather pillow when I mentioned that the 'luxury pillow" they had felt like it was a small beanbag. I was staying there for one night a week later, and the receptionist changed that reservation to non-smoking and made sure I had a feather pillow for THAT stay. The staff went out of their way to make my stay comfortable. The bottom line is I would stay there again.

Room Tip: If you come from the Shinkansen station and the weather is poor, you can access the hotel from the u...

Super location, but rooms are badly insulated , very expensive and I had to change rooms during a three night stay as they couldn't find one room for the whole stay. Thankfully this was a blessing in disguise.
Arrived first night to a very tiny and hot room, so pulled back the curtains expecting to open a window to find....a wall! Aircon was just about strong enough reduce the temperature, so was glad to move to another room. Again the aircon was feeble, but slightly less annoying than than the smell from the kitchens when I opened the window. Asked to move again but was told I would have to pay much higher prices to have a different floor. Never had this before.
Breakfast very average and at 18€ is so overpriced. Food is tepid at best and the coffee was perhaps the worst I've experienced for a long time. However the view is wonderful.
Have the feeling that this was once a great hotel that has sadly declined due to lack of investment. Shame, as it's location and potential is huge

This hotel is conveniently located at the Nagoya station and the airport express station is around 5 minutes walk from the hotel. You can walk to the nearby shopping malls and there are many restaurants nearby for you to choose.

The view of our twin room (we didn't wanna stay at a semi-double room but the corner double rooms are fully booked) is the Nagoya main street and it's very nice. The room is generally clean and all necessary amenities are available, but the room is aged and slightly worn.

The staff are nice in general with acceptable level of English.

Good location next to Nagoya Station. This is a Japanese business hotel so expect a very small room and bathroom. There is no Wifi in the room so you have to use the lobby. Service is very Japanese - polite and formal. Fine for an over night stay if you are on a budget.

Perfect location for travel, only steps from the bullet train and other services.
The hotel itself is quite good. It is aged and slightly worn, however (as per Japanese standards) the hotel is clean and functional.
This is not the location to stay for a week, but is more than adequate for a few days without complaint

It is very close to station so that we do not need to be with the luggage for too long time.
The breakfast is good and restaurant has a good view in this tall floor.
Room is clean and sorted, good for business trip.
