“Confused target audience”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Having spent three nights here I came away with mixed emotions: was this a hotel for business users or was it catering for families (certainly not families with young children as there are no facilities)? or holiday goers? a bit of all really, but as a result the hotel feels soulless. Additionally, the standard of food in the restaurant (very good, but expensive) and the breakfast (excellent) far exceed the quality of the rooms.

The room I stayed in was dark and dingy, lacking natural and artificial light. This is not help by the the seventies decor: the carpets I could see were new, but are back in the vastly seventies style. Bed was comfy and bathroom functional but not comfortable. There is a television and phone service, but I did not use these. Internet is available via a LAN, and annoyingly you need to provide your your own cable (RJ45): seem s little silly and most people on the go will be using laptops or tablets and use wireless, so some infrastructure needs updating here!

The location of the hotel is excellent and overlooks a park and the harbour. The view of the mountains surrounding the city is simply gorgeous. Approximately 300 metres from the main entrance is a tram stop and the tram system in Nagasaki is easy to use and cheap (120 Yen per trip at the time of this review). The hotel has a car park beneath it too should you have a car.

The standard of the restaurant is fairly high, but the menu is confused. You get the feel of French and Japanese, but I am not entirely sure. There are some classic Nagasaki dishes on offer and these are excellent and plenty of food to get through. The French style dishes lack refinement, but the quality of the produce is of the highest standard. Food is expensive here and I am not entirely sure it's targeted at the right audience, seeing the restaurant was almost empty every night I was there. Breakfast was a mix of Japanese, European and English; all cook very well and plenty of it; presented as a buffet, you can can back as often as you like. Do NOT miss breakfast as you will not be disappointed!

This hotel has the potential to be stunning, but requires focus. Additionally, new decor, infrastructure and fittings are needed, with a little market research required. You get the feeling that someone here has looked at the Laura Ashley and Wedgewood catalogue, but forgotten what really matters.

Nagasaki has loads on offer and you get the felling that the city is too modest for its own good. Hotel New Tanda could focus on catering to the tourist more and shout out what Nagasaki has to offer as the place is beautiful and I prefer it to Tokyo. Come on Hotel New Tanda, get a grip, focus on a market and shout out what Nagasaki has to offer!

Room Tip: You can smoke in all rooms, so as a non-smoker, ask if there is such a room available.

I lived there for weeks. The man called himself the hotel owner knocked our door on 11:50p.m. and said that we were too noisy because we were watching TV after 11:00p.m.! But at that time, we two girls didn't not watching TV even we didn't make any sound! He didn't apologize for it until we left the hotel...So, remember, in Hotel NEW TANDA. DO NOT WATCH TV OR TALK AFTER 11:00PM~ Especially when u're GIRLS!
