“Expectations Exceeded”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

An overnight stay in a 10th floor room at the Kachigawa Plaza Hotel definitely exceeded expectations. The room was quite adequate in size. Other reviews critical of room size may have been written by guests who have not stayed in tourist hotels in London. Good-sized bathroom and seating area near the tv. Lots of amenities including slippers, nightshirts, robes, toiletries, and free in-room wifi. Immaculately clean. Extremely quiet. It was hard to believe we were beside a busy train station. Buffet with hot and cold, Japanese and western options in the casually elegant breakfast room. Spacious lobby. High speed elevators.

We later returned for a reception in a hotel function room and were very satisfied with the catering. Good sound, common areas, and coat and umbrella check facilities.

Drawbacks? A faint odour of cigarettes detected when first entering the room. Twin beds (quite typical in Japan). No fitness facilities.

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smoking room facing away from the station.

The Plaza Hotel Kachigawa is right across the street from the Katsukawa JR train station on the Chuo line. It is about 30 minutes by commuter train from downtown Nagoya. None of the staff spoke English, so you have to rely on your Japanese business partners to check in. International credit cards are accepted which is not the norm in many Japanese business hotels. The rooms are clean but very small. The bathrooms are clean as well but again very small and difficult to use for tall persons like myself. But everyone is very friendly and the Japanese breakfast is good.

Stayed one night on business trip. Hotel is very convenient for rail station but no noise heard in room from trains. Rooms are smaller than Western hotels but size is still adequate. Comfortable bed. Slightly larger than a single bed. Breakfast was Ok too.

The property

A newish hotel just by Kachigawa station. Nothing special about the property or the location, but clean as a whistle. I could find no discernable heating system, this would be pretty chilly in winter I think. Close by the hotel is a supermarket with a full offering of food and coffee.


The room

Booked a single room for two nights. The room was pretty small - 75 square feet - with a similarly small bathroom and a half-bath. The bed was slightly up from a single, probably a 1.5.

The bathroom

Tiny, but functional, with a half tub and a shower over.

The bed

A kind of 1.5 bed, with nice cotton sheets and duvet.


Ambient noise and light

No ambient noise to speak of (I couldnt open the window). The curtains did a reasonable job of keeping out the light.


Other comments

At only about £50 a night this was a very good value offering - comfy, quiet, very clean, and convenient.

Room Tip: The single rooms have 1.5 beds, and are perfectly comfortable.

This Hotel seems to be a bit of an upmarket business hotel.
The rooms in this hotel were clean and comfortable with very quiet air conditioning and free internet.
Allthough the Train Station is right next door to the Hotel I could not hear any noise.
The hotel has a restaurant with an english language menu is there are several restaurants and shops within easy walking distance.

Room Tip: Make sure you specify non smoking and book early if that is what you require.
