This hotel was easily the best, and the best value, that we stayed at in our 2 weeks in Japan in May 2013. You couldn't get a handier location opposite the JR station and around the corner from a great supermarket where you can buy very cheap, fresh and amazing sushi etc (just ask hotel staff for directions). Our room was enormous compared to any others we had on the trip, overlooked the train station which looks beautiful at night (not noisy though), and was very clean and comfortable. The room had a bath-tub and the staff put out a complimentary basket of individual bath products (face masks, bath salts etc) in the foyer each afternoon 'for the ladies'. Great value and would highly recommend.
