A well located hotel close to both the JR station and the castle (which is shrouded in scaffolding until 2014 so no photo opportunities!).
The hotel is comfortable and well run with good toiletries in the bathrooms. Breakfast OK. However, it was BOILING hot, even with the window open in mid-November. Having the window open meant a lot of street noise so take some ear plugs just in case.
My partner (Japanese speaker) was alarmed to find a bevvy of fairly extreme right wing literature 'provided for guests' in the room. We think it may have been authored by the hotel's owner. This was really off putting and certainly made my partner worry about what kind of political shenanigans we were funding by staying there.
