It's worth visiting this place for the interior design concept alone. It's a crazy collision of 1980s decor, strangely placed stuffed clowns, fake cats, white rabbits in lift shafts, stone lions, seven stone dwarves, fake flowers and a lounge 'inspired' by some trans-European fantasy image. None of this appears to be ironic. It does, however, succeed in being slightly confusing and just a little creepy. "The Shining."
The hotel is actually 2 buildings semi-joined in the middle (it rains in between). This means that the lift to the rooms is up a flight of stairs so the staff have to carry your cases. The staff are very helpful.
Apart from that, the hotel is close to the train and bus station and baseball ground (hence the baseball themed toilet roll on sale at front desk...). The room was decent but tired, and good value overall. There is some noise from the railway tracks. Unlike other Japanese hotels, this one wasn't kept at an unbearable temperature thank goodness. Breakfast was basic, but kitchen was under-staffed.
