we stayed for 3 nights. the location isn`t too bad at all. about 3 minutes walk from Sakae station (subway).there`s many restaurants and clubs around. the staff speak fluent English and they were very helpful.
- Free Wifi
hotel with chapel specializing in weddings. comfortably-sized rooms (queen double) by japanese standards with free wired internet. what distinguishes this hotel is the very friendly & helpful, english-speakng concierge. invaluable to first time visitors to a japanese city. amongst others, recommended excellent restaurants and stayed overtime to make the bookings on short notice. interesting breakfast that includes a vitamin and health supplement buffet. walking distance to the sakae subway station and sakae shopping district. phone hotel directly with exact travel dates to check their best direct rates vs online offers.
This hotel is very easy to get to via subway. The staff were excellent, most of them spoke very good english. They also gave great advice about travelling to sightseeing spots.
The room was nice and functional. The beds were soft. The hotel is in a business/shopping district, so the views from the window weren't great. If you're not careful, you may walk into the seedy area where the business men get their pleasures ;)
The hotel is a fair walk (more than 20 mins) to the shopping/nightlife of Nagoya near Osu. There were plenty of department stores and posh shops in Sakae where this hotel is located. But we weren't too up for the 'companionship' or karaoke bars that were being offered...
Good for a stopover or place to stay to get to the sightseeing spots just outside Nagoya.
This hotel is not particularly convenient to any JR lines (if you have a JR pass). To get there, you need to get on the subway Sakae line and walk about another 5 mins to get to the hotel.
The hotel itself is located in the heart of Sakae which is great for shopping and eating out. The interior of the room is a bit dated, but nothing cringeworthy. Although we were on the 14th floor, for some reason we were able to hear quite a bit of street noise.
This was a great 1 night stop over, however I would not recommend long stays here if possible. Our room was sooooo HOT and it was the middle of winter which really affected our sleep. In saying that, I think Nagoya in general might be a bit of a heat trap.
Nagoya is a pleasant and interesting city. This hotel is well located, in the centre of the city. The rooms are a good size but more sparse and plain than other hotels we stayed in in Japan. The staff could not have been more helpful - although they were hugely busy. The hotel was full and there were three weddings during our stay. Even tho the rooms were very plain, we settled in quickly and had a very pleasant stay. It was more expensive however than better appointed hotels we stayed in. This might have had to do with it being the Japan GP weekend and visitors use Nagoya as a base. There is a very nice Starbucks on the ground floor and the staff there were also wonderful. Lots of restaurants, convenience stores and bars locally too.
I stayed 5 nights for business. It was very quiet during the night. Many convenient stores, drug stores, restaurants, fast food restaurants and department stores nearby. Very clean room with excellent bedding. 5 minutes walk to subway train station. I had a huge stack of documents after 5 days business trip and hotel staff helped me to arrange a package to airport so I did not to need to put them into my suitcase. Eco friendly and very clean hotel. I highly recommend this hotel for foreign travelers.
