The hotel is a few min walk from the nearest subway station which is about 3 stops from the JR train station. The location is okay esp going to/from the JR station. We bought day passes at the hotel for the bus and was given a map of bus routes. The walk to the closest bus stop is about 15 min near city hall passing some bakeries, shopping along the way. When we left out for sightseeing in AM, we didn't return until late afternoon so coming/going from hotel wasn't a big deal with it being a little out of the way.
The hotel is tucked away in an alley off the main road so it's very quiet. I loved the waterfall in the open atrium. The room was clean and comfortable bed which is all I ask for. All rooms in Japan are small so ignore the complaints about small rooms unless you want to pay 3-4x more for luxury hotel. Our 4 nights here was in the middle of our trip and I did laundry. They have washer/dryer located on every other floor, cost was very low. I can't recall soap avail because I just used a travel size packet of Tide I brought along.
We ate the breakfast buffet one morning, for the price it was excellent. They had a huge western style buffet of food available and price was reasonable. Because it was a lot of food we choose to limit ourselves to just one morning.
On the 2nd level there was free internet pc's setup however there seemed to be young people hanging out for hours. We generally just walked up the stairs to level 2 to check b4 boarding elevator to go up to room. Not a huge deal, at some point one would have been open.
I would def stay here again in a heartbeat esp for the price and comfortableness. I would prefer to stay at JR station for the location for day trips, some of the eateries, etc located down there.
