I will admit that the hotel has perhaps been slightly smarter, and that in places it was slightly tired, but it was clean, the staff were helpful and the rooms, although small, were perfectly adequate.

Being a tall westerner I did find some aspects of the room somewhat short, but that was never a problem, more a feature of interest. The bed was perfectly big enough for me and I quite enjoyed the 'husk' pillow full of little plastic tubes, although more traditional pillows were also on the beds. The views from the rooms were great, a good bonus for a high rise building.

Breakfast was fine, the range wasn't great but it was more suited to a Japanese palette than a western one. Though there was more than enough for a westerner to eat and enjoy.

The central location of the hotel is what raises it from 3* to 4*, it is downtown near the train station and within walking distance of much of the more interesting bits of town including the castle and the maze of narrow lanes that lie between the hotel and the castle. Wander these for a real taste of Japan. I would also suggest eating in these lanes, although if you don't speak the language prepare for some surprises!

This hotel was chosen because of the proximity to the train station. For the traveler from North America, this place is somewhere between a Motel 6 and a really old Best Western (in disguise)! The lobby is quite impressive and the building is sleek and modern from the outside. It is the tallest building, so the views are wonderful. Rooms are large but seriously need updating. The bed was clean but uncomfortable. (The pillows were worse!) Minimum of amenities, hand soap dispenser by the sink, shampoo, soap, conditioner dispenser in the shower and very skimpy towels. There was a small sitting area in the room but the cushions were so worn that even plumping them did not fix the sagging. The bar did not open until 5:30 and since we had a business dinner, we missed trying it (as it closed by 9pm). We also missed breakfast because they didn't open until 6:30 and we had to leave before that. I found the front desk staff quite curt and not at all familiar with the customer service attitudes of the rest of Japan.

Neat, clean and comfortable. Spent a night here during a business trip. The hotel has a wonderful view as its the tallest building around. Night scene is lovely. Breakfast was quite a spread. Dinner went to one of the nearby restaurants. The internet service is quite fast, though that is common all over Japan. Being right next to the station also has its perks since most of the convenient stores are around the corner for any last minute shopping.
