This is the 3rd time I have visited this hotel. The first time was about 7 years ago and then twice in July 2013.
The hotel is very clean with friendly staff but is a little lacking in atmosphere. It is fine for a business trip but not the kind of hotel that you would choose to take your wife to for a romantic weekend.
It is less than 2minutes walk from Sakura station. There is a Japanese, Italian, Chinese & Steak restaurant within 2 minutes walk for the hotel. The hotel kindly gave me a map showing these places. There are 2 more Japanese restaurants the other side of the station about 4 minutes walk from the hotel. There is a 7-11 minimarket just past the station. A cold can of beer bought here is almost half the price of a cold beer from the hotel vending machine. 270 Yen as apposed to 500 Yen so it is worth the 2 minute walk if you fancy a couple of beers to pass the evening away. There is also a Supermarket & McDonalds just past the station about 4 minutes walk away.
The hotel staff are happy to call you a taxi if you want one but as the station is less than 2 minutes away there are always loads of taxi's waiting on both sides of the station.
If I have another business trip in the area, I would be pleased to stay at this hotel again
