Very noisy on the first night from guests arriving back late at night and traffic noise. Did enjoy spending two nights in a traditional Japanese room. It was also close to the station.

Nice place but out of the way

This place was just what we needed, good value for a private room. It was really new and the rooms were very clean. The shower rooms were not quite as clean on the first morning as there had been a lot of guests. There were lots of food places nearby but the place was a bit of a trek from the city centre.

2日宿泊いたしました。お部屋の中はとても快適でオートロックもされてて安心でした。周辺にお店もあり、駅も近く、立地のいい場所だと思います。 気になることは、一部の男子トイレのドアが閉まらず鍵がかけれなかったこと、男子シャワー室右側の臭いが気になりました。改善して頂けたら幸いです。 応対も丁寧にして頂きましたので総合的に快適に過ごすことが出来ました。ありがとうございます。
