    Subway station is right in front of the hotel. A single bed room is quite small so i would recommended to stay in a 2 single beds. Price is reasonable plus free hot onsen bath for guests.

    Good location if you dont mind not staying in the tourist area, it's more of a business district. But super convenient for trains, easy to get around with a train staion directly underneath the hotel. The hotel was very clean, if you didnt want house cleaning done that day, they provide a pack with water and extra towels at your door. The room was a little too small. Almost impossible to have your suit cases open and be able to access the bathroom at the same time. But that's just Japan, I guess.

    中規中矩

    地點方便, 與數個地鐵站相近, 亦有餐廳及便利店。 清潔員做事不太認真, 換紙巾沒有掉包裝袋。 繁忙時間需等10多分鐘電梯, 建議住高層較好。

    DONT STAY HERE!!

    staff is welcoming, room is terrible, it's like a smoker living there for 10 years, most awful thing is there are a lots of bugs on the bed, both quilt and sheet, every time I lay down, I feel there are something jump on my body and my skin turn red and itchy in 2 min, I end up sleeping on my bath towel, I know the picture looks okand price is cheap, but save yourself some good memory for holiday and avoid this hotel
