We staying in one of the new korus rooms (after a terrible night in the semi double room of 17 sq m)
Overall a much larger room which had most of the things we needed. However the room had some significant drawbacks which after significant investment were a disappointment.
Firstly the bed which as a small 4'6" double was woefully small as a king or even a queen would have been appropriate for a room costing over £150 a night.
Secondly the television offered 4 channels of european tv including BBC World. Sadly when we tried it was offering a pre defined audio track of jazz and no explanation of the lack of other language channels which if working would have made the world of difference for non japanese speakers.
The lighting and audio system were billed as a new way of experiencing sleep and relaxation. Connecting my iphone to the system would only produce audible sound at maximum volume and this was poor quality and distorted. The lighting which I'd hoped would be all LED was a mixture of this and CFL low energy bulbs incapable of dimming or providing the relaxing evening atmosphere promised.
The highlight (bemusingly the expensive item) is the toilet which auto flushes and produces every trick from a sliver remote control. Some english language help would avoid embarrasing flushes and water works. Overall the bathroom was good however a cheap shower wall material still makes it feel like a pre built installed system. Some tiles or real stone would make a world of difference here.
So apart from location we wouldn't recommend this hotel. A shame as it gets so much of the little things wrong but tries so hard in other ways.
