OK, but some drawbacks

Posted Dec 20, 2016
Pros: It was close to the train station.
Cons: The breakfast buffet could include more items typical of a western breakfast, but to be fair, this is a hotel that specializes in Japanese guests.
Location: there are some good restaurants nearby just to the right and behind the central street leading away from the train station.
The room is typical for a Japanese businessperson's hotel. Tiny, but clean, with minuscule bathroom. The staff has enough English skills for a visitor to get assistance. The laundry service is good. However, for a westerner the breakfast leaves a great deal to be desired. While it is probably fine for Japanese, I did not find stone cold scrambled eggs appealing. I got a refund on my breakfast coupons and ate breakfast at the McDonalds in the train station (2 blocks away) for three of my five days at this hotel. Additionally, the air handling unit is such that if the room is too hot, you must just turn the unit off and open a window to let the room cool down. The system is switched to AC in the summer, but in the winder it's a challenge to juggle the room temperature at night. Wake up, hit the off switch, then wake up and hit the lowest heat setting. repeat.

Simple, clean hotel

Posted Nov 23, 2016
Pros: easy to get to from Koriyama station
Cons: Nothing really.
Location: Quick walk to the station
I was only visiting Koriyama for a day so this was ideal, as it was very close to the station (walkable, 5 minutes). The room was not as small as I expected most Japanese hotels are, so that was a plus. My partner and I were able to lay out both our carry one suitcases open and still some room left. The bathroom is extremely small, but again, we were only staying for a night that we didn't require anything larger than what we had. The staff at the front desk is very helpful and accommodating. They have breakfast but is not included in your rate, so keep that in mind.

It's decent

Posted Mar 26, 2015
Pros: The distance from the station is ideal.
Cons: Staff attitude
Location: The train station nearby has a lot of shops and of course there's the Big i (which holds a planetarium, I believe).
The staff is a little cold but it's excellent in terms of location. It's small but I've encountered much smaller. It wasn't the small-town-hospitality I had hoped for, but if you like to keep to yourself, this hotel should be fine for you. No one will bother you. I was really annoyed because they quoted me a price, then after I accepted they changed it right in front of me. I asked, "It changed?" in Japanese but they didn't apologize or explain why. That annoyed me greatly. I just took it anyway because I had just come from a long flight and two long train rides.
