This hotel is centrally located, right next to a covered shopping district with restaurants, arcades, and right down the street from the upper-end shopping places. A few minutes walk to Takamatsu station, the port, and a short train ride away (Kawaramachi Station) from the castle. It's rather out of the way if you want to get to Ritsurinkouen, but that's nothing a hardy walker can't overcome. We made it back from the garden in about 20 minutes.
The staff is very nice and goes out of their way to help you - they let us store our luggage the day before check-in and helped us find good restaurants and made fine suggestions. The rooms were a bit all over the place. The seventh floor (where part of our party stayed) was great - big rooms (for a business hotel), decent shower cubicle and a really marvelous bed - quite large and comfy for a single traveler. I heard from other (Japanese) members of our group that other rooms on other floors were more cramped. If a Japanese tourist tells you a place is lacking in space, look out!
The stay was extremely cheap (about 3500 yen for one night) and we got a discount using a Shikoku tourist magazine (Shikoku Passport - very useful, look for it! Bright yellow cover this year.)
The hotel was only an average stay because the toilet was broken when I checked in, and since we were out all evening, I didn't find out until midnight! Yikes! And the street outside is incredibly noisy. This didn't bother the more sound sleepers in the group, but it kept me awake all night long. Too bad, because the bed was truly fantastic.
Otherwise, basic, affordable, and worth it. After all, you're only sleeping there, you're not planning a wedding.
