The Bavarian theme for this hotel could have worked out well but like so many things about this hotel doesn't quite make it. The solid wood furniture is nice but a bit gloomy, When you get to the rooms it is ridiculous because it takes up the whole room and Japanese hotel rooms are small enough anyway. My room had s four- poster double bed. You had to negotiate around the furniture rather than use it. Together with the muted lighting, the effect was depressing. And don't drop anything, it's sure to roll under the massive furniture. The massive double bed was OK for me but for 2 people, one would have to climb over the other or come up from the bottom. Everything seemed inconvenient as a result of the imposition of the theme on the Japanese building. There was some nice art but because it matched, it added to the gloom. There is no elevator so getting your luggage to your room is a backbreaker, Breakfast is ¥500 extra and is not worth it. There was a wide range of Japanese dishes but it lacked the basics. No egg at all. I got one by asking but no nori to eat it with and the rice wasn't hot enough to cook the egg. There were other examples of trying to be cleverer in service or gadgets and failing. The coffee machine worked. The staff were friendly and helpful but kept bumping up against house rules that spoiled the impression of hospitality. It is reasonably close to Kagoshimachuo eki. I didn't really feel good about my stay despite the hotel being satisfactory. I wouldn't return.
