We stayed here for 3 nights mainly so see the Triennale in 2013. It was the best priced hotel in Takamatsu for what we wanted.
Although the hotel is within walking distance of Takamatsu Station (if you enjoy a good walk), I would not recommend this on arrival. It is quite a distance to travel with luggage, and locating it is not very easy the first time around. So a taxi from the station is easiest and not very expensive. The hotel entrance is extremely modest so from the street it is not easily seen. Just look for the signs and take the lift to reception.
The staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient. Luggage can be stored at reception if you arrive early.
The room was a good size, clean and neat. The bathroom modern and well stocked with the necessities. We love the fact it is no smoking, everything smells fresh and clean.
The hotel was very well positioned for shopping in the arcade. It is long and undercover so good for all types of weather. Immediately below the hotel are numerous restaurants and on ground level there is a supermarket, an international grocery store and baker. This is good to know for breakfast as the hotel does not provide breakfast, although vouchers are available for one just below the hotel.
The main street along which most buses travel is only about 5 minutes walk. Buses can take you back to the station and harbour. During the triennial there was an information centre (including English guide) with advice regarding ferry / boat transport to and from the islands. The buses also go in the opposite direction to Ritsurin Koen. Again, it is quite possible to walk to the Koen and it is quite an interesting walk.
Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Takamatsu.
