Wifi is only available in the lobby and on the 2nd floor. Other floors have to use a LAN cable (amazing to experience that in Japan, kind of old-fashion, isn't it). Location is not that convenient with 10-15 min walk to reach the metro T line, no tourist spot/attraction in the neighborhood. A few convenient shops (Fresco, Family Mart) are located next door and make it convenient for a quick and cheap breakfast if needed. Tiny room like most hotels in Japan. Bathroom is kinda all-in-one molded, cheap looking. Shower spray is (too) small.
Last but not least, if you ask for a late checkout (we asked for an extra hour) they won't offer for free, it will cost you 1,500 JPY ! Standard checkout is 11:00 am, they just can't offer a checkout at 12:00 for free. SIMPLY AMAZING. FIRST TIME EVER in my traveller's life. We were traveling with a 3.5y baby and had to fight strongly (with two different cashier desks) to get this one extra hour for free. Poor understanding and zero flexibility.
