Stayed here for 3 nights at one of the ground floor rooms. The rooms are a bit outdated yes, but they are refurbishing apparently. The amount of water from the showers was enough but not overdone. The rooms are of good size and the beds were good, there was a TV with international channels.
The location is good, on the backside of the imperial palace, it used to be the guest house for the emperor's guests, so there is a large park around the hotel.
