Be aware that if you stay here you will be charged for every little thing. I booked online for a 4 night stay with a package including towels, wifi and tv. When I checked in without even looking the attendant knew that my online reservation only included the package for one night instead of 4 nights. And what a surprise they charge more when you pay at the hotel rather than online. I said I wanted to talk with manager, but told he is not there so I said I would wait. She went in the office and came back and said I could then have it at the online price. Check in time is at 2 pm but I arrived at 1 pm and even though the room was available I was told I would have to pay an extra charge for an earlier check in. I elected to just wait rather than pay an extra charge. Second night my room was not cleaned, so had to go ask for it to be done, but no clean towels given. Next night room cleaned, but still no clean towels even though I had paid extra for the package. Contacted the desk and instead of them sending someone up with the towels I had to go get them. I would not recommend this place and there are nicer and better places in the area to stay. You also might want to be aware that the area around the hotel seems geared mainly to cater to Japanese and Korean tourists. Hotel is okay but service is terrible.
