I would stay here again for sure, but only because I like to use the sauna, large public bath, and exercise room...all free and all rare for a Japanese business hotel. The hotel is a really great value (a bargain) if you make use of these, otherwise it's just a very basic budget hotel with a decent price.
The rooms are essentially standard business hotel style rooms. They are small and unremarkable, a little drab but clean. If you are on business and need to do work in your room, there is a free internet LAN connection, but be aware that the work space is very small (I'm a a little tall, 190cm, and my knees didn't fit under the desk). The bathroom in my standard single room was a very tiny unit bathroom.
What makes this hotel such a great value is the spa. On the second floor is a large public bath for guests. The men's bath was very clean and large, and had a cold bath, a hot bath, a hot jacuzzi bath, and a dry sauna room. Also on the second floor is an exercise room (a couple of stationary bikes, a couple of treadmills, a few balance machines and a stretching area.) An exercise room is very rare for Japanese budget/business hotels so this is really a treat. There is also a room with computers for internet access and a bunch of reclining massage chairs. And if you are interested in paying for more spa services, there is a full service salon with massages (reasonably priced) and other traditional salon services.
A free breakfast is included too. The big sales point is that they have freshly baked bread. This is a few types of croissants and rolls. There is also seasonal soup (serving a hearty minestrone with lots of vegetables and some bits of ham when I was there), cups of yogurt, and juice and coffee. That's it. If you're not into bread or soup or yogurt, there are no other options for you. But the soup and the bread are tasty and you can have as much as you want. There is a convenience store on the first floor.
All in all, if you are going to use the spa, this hotel is a GREAT value. If not, it's fine but unremarkable.
