The view is what's keeping this hotel going. It has no food on the property, no coffee in the room, just the tea (which is ok tea but nothing to start your morning with). It's very far from town and requires a $15 cab ride or 40 minute walk to get in - which would be ok if the place had somewhere to eat or was near other restaurants. But it does not other than a ramen restaurant that is open for 3 hours in the evening. SO plan ahead. Unfortunately my stay here was less than restful as the front desk called me about 8 times between check in and check out. Staff was very nice but it was frustrating to be bothered so much and have to run in and out from the balcony just to answer the phone about things that were irrelevant. Also, the futons are very thin. BUT the view. Wow is the view worth all of it. In sum: bring food with you, don't plan on going into town or plan ahead on your transportation costs ($30+ each day to get back and forth), and enjoy the view.
