Great location - close to subway, shopping & food
Posted Apr 19, 2017
The hotel is located 2 blocks from the Hommachi Station on a very quiet narrow one way street that during commuting hours pedestrians easily out number cars. Our room 1103 was located on a smoking floor, as non smokers (hotel was very busy at this time we were knowingly booked into a smoking room), the smoking smell in both the room and hallways was non where as bad as we expected. Apparently the rooms are deodorised between guests. Our room had a very large bathroom (approximately 3 * 2M) which was surprising for Japan. As a result of the very large bathroom the remaining room was approximately 2.9 * 2.9 M, or put another way not much bigger than the bathroom! The bath had a weird slopping floor towards the plughole which was a bit weird to use as a shower over bath. The hotels breakfast is held at reception starting at 06:30. Breakfast has a reasonable changing selection of cold western food including pastries, rolls and bread, along with salads and fresh fruit and yogurt. Oddly all breakfast utensils are disposable wooden sticks meaning that you need to cut your bread roll open or butter your toast with a short blunt ice cream like stick which is not easy. When you leave your room you are required to give your key back to reception. Whilst this sounds annoying it actually is a very quick and easy process with reception usually staffed by 2 people.
