The staff are very friendly, and extremely helpful. Their English is superb as well. We had asked if there was a local bar near as we did not want to eat. The staff not only gave us directions but also called to make sure that it was open. There are leaflets about local restaurants in various languages including English. As we were going by bus to the pottery village, the hotel kept our cases for us. We did not have breakfast, although it was included in the price of the room so cannot comment on food. The room was small but not smaller than I was expecting. The location was great 2 minutes from the railway station. I would happily stay at this hotel again.
We stayed here one night during a visit to the porcelain area. This was the cheapest hotel during our trip, approx £65, but it exceeded my expectations and did not lack facilities. Washing machine and driers (detergent already in the machine), microwave, supermarket and breakfast. Reception staff friendly and helpful. The room was small, only one side of the double was accessible but for a one night stopover it was perfect. The place was full of people, but soundproofing good. One minute to the station and four minutes to an excellent French restaurant (Bouillon). It doesn’t pretend to be anything other than it is. The porcelain area is really interesting and I'd stay here again and use as a base, though to note that the Japan Rail pass does not cover the journey to/from Arita…
A very convenient location, free parking, comfortable room size, clean and new, plentiful of choice in breakfast, a nice place to stay. Aeon supermarket, train station and many food stores are just round the corner.
The room was pod style and was clean and comfortable. Although it was compact we found it fine. Good bathroom and breakfast. We were on the 11th floor and it was very quiet. A good place to stay for visiting the pottery towns.
Trains start running shortly after 5am! Not too bad if you keep the windows firmly closed... Breakfast room was cramped. Average breakfast with tinned fruit. At reception have helpful listing and map in English of restaurants nearby.
