10/10 Exceptional

Nice, convenient, comfy
Right next to the JR station (you don't even have to cross the street). The tourist office is on the other side of the station. Very convenient location. About 15 minutes from the Samurai town. They have a restaurant in the hotel with a nice variety of local dishes. Comfortable bed (and 2 pillows! a rarity in Japanese hotels), nice and toasty warm (which is helpful when it's literally freezing outside).

Located next to station so can watch the shinkansen come and go. They are very very quiet. Easy walk to all sightseeing and combini next door for snacks

8/10 Very good

スタッフの皆さんは親切で丁寧でした。駅の隣にあり新幹線利用だと非常に好立地と言えますが、武家屋敷地区までは結構歩くことになりました。 部屋はビジネスホテルに比べて多少広い程度ではありますが特に問題はありませんでした。 部屋が階段の真横だったので他のお客さんの足音がうるさいかと心配でしたが、特に問題はありませんでした。 問題はバスルームと部屋の床の段差がかなりあったこと。毎回昇り降りする感じで、高齢者の人だと結構苦労するのではないかと思いました。
