Reviewed January 7, 2014

My husband and I stayed here in October 2013 as we were travelling to the Formula 1 at Suzuka over the F1 weekend (and Nagoya is the closest city point). I was dubious about the hotel as I paid $90 per night approx on wotif.com. But I needn't have been - it was great for a short stay.

The room was typical Japanese business style with the usual "space cube" bathroom that you find in many business hotels. It was SUPER clean and the staff were very helpful. When we checked in we had trouble opening our window (I love fresh air), mainly because it needed a special key, but the staff promptly helped out and opened it for us. The free wifi was also a great bonus that you do not see enough these days.

The first day we forgot to take the "Do not disturb" off our door, so when we returned from the F1 that night there was a little basket at our door containing fresh towels and toiletries. Nice touch.

The location can't be beat. A short cab ride from Nagoya station or a 1 minute walkway to the Sakae subway station which we used everyday. Lots of food options nearby and many shops.

If I was staying in Nagoya again (and being F1 fans this is very likely), I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Location: Just a 5 min walk from metro station (Sakae). Major department stores and shopping centers are located the other side of the road. A convenient store Lawson is on the ground floor. There is a lift on the ground floor, so if you carry with a large luggage, you don't have to take the escalator.

Service: Staff can speak English well. But they lack a usual Japanese serving manner - a always smiling faces. When I checked out and needed to store 4 piececs of luggage at the counter, the lady's face was so blank and her manner was a bit crude. Except that, all are great!

Room: We were on the top floor, and we booked a semi-double room. As usual Japnese business hotel, its room size is very acceptable. Bed is 140cm width - good enough for my wife and I.

We stayed the b Nagoya for one night in Oct 2013. We took taxi from Nagoya station to hotel, approx. 1,500 yen. Close to Metro "Sakae" Station, shopping malls, Oasia 21 etc. Room is not too small, clean and tidy, free wifi, the price is reasonable, the staff are very friendly.

The hotel is conveniently located near the Sakae subway station. The only thing is you have to find the right exit which is a little bit confusing. Spend sometime to look at the map in the station carefully and you should be fine. There are several exit that connected to each other. If you have lots of luggage, find the lift. We had 1 double and 1 twin room for our stay and twin room is much bigger. The wallpaper is a bit tired but everything else is nice and clean.
Not many choices for breakfast but ok, the Japanese food tasted good. There is no butter here, only margarine.

I only stayed at the b nagoya for one night. The location is good, the room is clean and not really so small. The hotel is cozy and not expensive. A good choice to stay when you dont have much time in Nagoya, when you are not expecting facilities like swimming pools, spa and gym.

Helpful and friendly staff is hugely important for me as you never know when you might need assistance during your stay. 2 examples during our stay. We arrived early for check in after an early arriving flight and although we couldn't check in straight away the staff went out of their way to help us to a room as soon as possible. We also departed having left something in the room. Having moved on to a hotel in Tokyo the staff at the B Nagoya forwarded our item to our new hotel efficiently and without fuss. Two simple things but not always as easy as they made it.

The room was very clean and functional and perfect for our stay.

Location wise it also couldn't be better. Right in the middle of the city and only a short walk away from the metro to reach other parts.

Very good value for money, I would recommend.

Only stayed here for one night but the rooms were definitely on the small side. In fairness, I don't think the size of the room is out of the ordinary for Japanese hotel rooms but there are definitely options that are more spacious. The plastic clad bathroom was also very small.
