“Even the standard rooms here have character and views. Those with beds and hot tub are more expensive - but worth every penny.”

“Rooms on the river with private onsen are worth the expense.”

“Ask for a view over the river/stream”

“I'm sure all rooms are OKish for the price you're paying and I'm not sure you can book any particular kind. However, if there were to be a next time, I would ask for a quiet room (if that's possible) and one with no view of neighbours buildings.”
