Wonderful stay
Although the room was small, that is pretty common in Japan. Our stay was quite pleasant and staff were very polite and accommodating.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
the Japanese style hot tub is lovely!
The staff were helpful, and typically polite and smiley, although a little hesitant to use English, as is often the case in Japan. The room was clean and decked out with the usual creature comforts of any standard Japanese business hotel. Despite it being a semi-double, the bed had only one, very thin pillow, which actually made it difficult to sleep. If they were a little more generous with their pillows - many business hotels here are - i would've had no complaints about the room. the hotel's big highlight for me was its "sento" room (hotspring-like bath area). It's something you don't often see in a budget city hotel, so I made the most of this very relaxing facility! Also, although not immediately apparent as you make your way to the hotel from the station, the surrounding neighbouhood has some really lovely streets, including a long "shoutengai" (walking mall), lined with all manner of shops and restaurants. Overall, I had a pretty good stay.

3/5 Okay

Good service, tiny tiny rooms
The hotel is reasonably well situated for Kawaguchi, five minutes walk from the railway station, and ten minutes from the rather pretty Kawaguchi shrine. The hotel service (what little we used) was typically Japanese efficient and the rooms were clean and well-maintained. BuBut the rooms were tiny. The bed is jammed in the corner and there wasn't the space to lay out our two suitcases. No wardrobe, just some hooks, and a tiny little nook for a fridge (no mini bar) and a kettle. The bathroom was minute; sitting on the toilet involved jamming your knees on the opposite wall. The basin intruded on the shower area, which was over a 1m long bath tub. The show had two mounting points, the highest of which was about 6' of the ground. If you're taller, you'll have to stoop ... but if you're much taller, you wouldn't fit in the bathroom itself without crouching, as the ceiling was only two metres from the ground.
