Azul Esaka isn't your average hotel. It is more like serviced apartments. The room was fantastic and quite big for Japanese standards. It even had a kitchen with fridge, convection oven and stove top. The only negatives about the room are the lack of Wifi internet that was advertised and the semi double bed. The bed is a tight fit for any couple. With a larger bed this would be a great room especially for the price.
There is no traditional reception as it is all self check in. Great if you want a comfortable room to use as a base. Not so great if you expect room service and daily cleaning.
