“Over-the-top meals, so so lodging”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Lodging is the best way to describe it. My 2 friends & I checked in (great staff, by the way!) and were led through several corridors to our cell-like room, which reminded me of a student dormitory (I have been in those here since I am a university teacher!). Table was covered in blothes of grease which I soon discovered after I placed the catalog from a kabuki event on it and it was soaked in the stuff! (I reported this later & they bought me a new one) The room (215) ended up being on a quiet street but there were streetlights seriously bright & oddly there were no curtains over the window that it was difficult to get to sleep with all that light. The doorways in the room are very low and I am 5' 7" and had to watch out. They had a hotspring bath that was pretty nice but it was completely crowded (compared to the other places I have stayed in that area) and there was some serious mold around the sinks. (It was very obviously an all-male staff who didn't seem to be concerned about the cleanliness of this bathroom!)
The GOOD things-
This inn is very convenient, we were all dressed in kimono so getting to/from the theater was a cinch. Sake brewery right next door and lots of cool restaurants/noodle shops right nearby. The staff was friendly and considerate and the meals were SUPERB! If you are a serious foodie and have a massive appetite, the meals are perfect! There is an adjoining bar as well.

Room Tip: DO NOT stay on the well-lit street side, it was as bright as it was in the daytime!
