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.
