Very clean and size of room is above average for this type of hotel in Japan. I really enjoyed Breakfast Buffet. Stuff and service is very friendly and convenient location made our stay very enjoyable.
We came to see a concert and wanted to stay somewhere convenient to the arena and to the Metro. This certainly met our needs. The room was small, but clean and comfortable. There are several restaurants and a convenience store downstairs. Would stay again for sure if I come back to the area.
While the hotel itself was superb, it took quite a long time to reach off the expressway and the area around the hotel wasn't particularly nice either. The hotel complex did have a great assortment of restaurants and a convenience store inside of it which was very handy. The pay-to-use gym and spa were top notch.
I was extremely satisfied with all aspects of the hotel and it was a short walk to Saitama Shintoshin Station and to nearby restaurants and shopping. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a first rate hotel at a very reasonable room rate.
