I was travelling with my 19 year old son and we met up with a Japanese friend for 4 nights at this hotel.
The reviews on Tripadvisor for this hotel weren't so good and I wanted to stay at Dormy Inn but this hotel was my friend's choice.She booked on the Japanese hotel website and got a good rate 10,000 yen per night for 2 people in a twin room including breakfast.
I had two main concerns: noise and poor ventilation.
We had room 908 which overlooked the road, quite a large one.It was noisy despite double galzing of the window.There was a pedestrian crossing on the busy street below with an annoying auditory signal for hearing impaired .
The air-conditioning apparently wasn't working at that time of the year (first week of December).A special key,used by a staff member, was required to open or lock the window and I didn't want it open at night because of noise from the street .They did offer an air purifier.
The room itself was quite good with 2 large very firm size single beds and enough room for 2 suitcases.Bathroom had bath and basic shower fittings.
The breakfast was excellent, the best thing about our visit.It included cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurt, eggs as well as Japanese breakfast items.
Reception was on the second floor.Their English was not so good but they were very kind and helpful.
They organised luggage forwarding and recommended an absolutely amazing seafood restaurant nearby called Tenkatsu. The food was very good but the concept of bar seating around a large inground pool for the fish was an outstanding feature! We went twice.
We used Takamatsu as a base to explore, using public transport, Naoshima, Oboke gorge and Naruto (whirlpools and Otsuka museuem). The hotel was about 10 minutes walk from the station/port. The only time we used a bus was to go to the famous garden.
