“Cold nights, warm staff”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the Sun Route on two very cold January nights. The beds and pillows were hard as stone which is often the case in Japanese hotels. The room was also quite cold and since one of the twin beds was right below the window, the cold hit the bed, so all in all not a good night sleep. The bathroom was very small but the size of the room was actually oke for Japanese standards. The restaurant is not that great (lunch at the Bay City hotel was better) and breakfast ends at 8:30 so no sleeping in. Of course no wifi. No minibar, no vending machine. But this is not Tokyo so one has to adjust expectations. The staff is very friendly. They ask if you want your room cleaned or whether you want it 'untouched'. The waiter of the restaurant has pictures of the 3.11 tsunami on his phone: when you see that and realize what the people here are dealing with, a hard, cold bed seems pretty trivial

Stayed January 2013, traveled on business

The tsunami killed 800 in Kamaishi and devastated the hotel's neighborhood. The lobby was under 6 meters of water. Today, it's clean, no trace of damage in the lobby. Room was fine. The staff today was the staff then. They are a hell of a crew. Not much lodging in the area. Since all the competition is gone, this hotel was a bargain --- I had to drive 45 km. from Rikuzentakada to find a room anywhere. Breakfast included.
