We had a great stay here. You have the chance to feel the Japanese style in a cozy atmosphere and the staff is super friendly! Very close to the subway station and from walkable distance to city centre. Breakfast was excellent: traditional rice and soup but also toasts, yogurt, fruit, etc. while watching the news. Would highly recommend.

We stayed in Ga-Jyun for four nights and we could not have made a better choice. They are nice, rooms (and beds) are comfortable, breakfast is good and the location really convenient. We had the opportunity to visit a public bath for free and was a really interesting (and also very relaxing) experience. Highly recommended!
