A very pleasant Stay on the first day of our arrival in Japan, Akita.
Efficient and good service. The grilled dinner arranged by our guide was delicious. An experience. The room was spacious and comfortable room. Most importantly, clean. Although I would have preferred lesser crowd, it was still possible to enjoy the onsen

I would not recommend this hotel if you are looking for real Japanese experience. However, if you are looking for value for money hotel to use as base whilst exploring the are then it could be a good choice.

My main issue with this hotel was the lack of attention to details, which reallly reduced the enjoyment of the hotel. Firstly the baths are quite basic with no real rotenburo, also the view from the bath window is ugly and unlike other hotels there has been no attempt to cover it. I was also disappointed that unlike other this style of hotel there is no water in the changing rooms which is a must.

The rooms were spacious but quite old and the air condition unit is so noisy we had to switch it off to sleep.

The food is average not bad but depending on the level (3 choices) you either get something very basic or pretty ok.
