Booked an airport-facing double room through Rakuten for stay from Sept 30th to Oct 2nd.
We arrived hotel at around 14:30, about 30 minutes ahead of the normal check-in time. There are plenty of parking spaces available just outside of hotel entrance and are free of charge. As soon as we took our bags out from the trunk a hotel staff approached us with a trolley and offered to take the bags for us. A very nice touch as this is not common practice in Japan.
Check-in was quick and we were in our room in no time. Our room, #416, comes with a balcony (I believe this is standard for all rooms in this hotel) and has double sound-proofing slide doors. The room was airy and absolutely spotless. Size was more than adequate for the two of us.
We plan to watch and photograph airplanes - hence the choice of airport facing room. When runway 36 is in use, planes approach and land right in front of us. For those who do not fancy airplanes the ocean facing rooms offer great views of the setting sun.
In-room wired Internet is free of charge - WiFi is not available, which is not a problem as we always travel with a portable WiFi-router. There are also two computers in the lobby for guests' use.
Tickets for the in-hotel onsen (hot bath) were included in our package and offered unlimited use of the facility up till 10am on the check-out date. Regular admittance is JPY1,200 per use. A special addition is the "Salt Sauna" and is a must try! All in all, a very nice and relaxing onsen experience.
Breakfast was not overly extensive, but again was more than adequate to get your day going. Free shuttle to the airport is also available and must be individually reserved with the front desk the day before. We did not use the shuttle as you'll really need a car to explore the area.
Upon check out the front desk staff walked us all the way out to the parking - and stayed until we lost sight of her in the rear mirror.
An excellent stay and we'll definitely return if we do come back for another visit.
