As mentioned by other reviewers, close proximity to Nagoya Station is a big plus (ekimae means in front of station). The stairway down to the station is just around the corner. You don't even have to cross the street.
I call the hotel superior because the rooms are very very clean. Yes, rooms are small, but that is what you expect of a business hotel in Japan.
There are two computers in the lobby for free Internet access if you do not have your own device. For us, they were a lot more efficient to use than our iPhones.
We got a package that included breakfast, something that we do not normally do. We usually visit neighborhood shops for coffee and breakfast. BUT we must say that the extra cost was worth it. The hotel offers two breakfast styles -- Western style on the first floor and Japanese style on the second floor. The Western spread gives you lots of food, including toast, pastries, eggs, sausage, cereal, juice and coffee. The Japanese breakfast is in a room with a view out the picture windows. Give it a try. We liked it just as much as the Western style (fyi, my wife was born and raised in Japan).
All in all, our stay for three nights was very good. No problems.
