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.
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.
