Regular business hotel
Overall your basic business hotel in Japan. Small rooms and no frills. I did hear that the breakfast buffet is worth the price. Not my first choice of hotels in Utsunomiya but in a pinch it will do.

Clean and functional. Was what I needed. Nothing amazing though and the hallway smelt badly of cigarettes.

Very nice hotel!
Overall I'm very happy with the hotel. I will concede that it does seem like an older property, so some parts of it do seem a bit old-fashioned. But everything is very well maintained and works well.

Convenient location and friendly staff
Stayed here for three weeks -- the staff was friendly and the room quiet and comfortable. The hotel is in a convenient location being nearby the main station, and with a supermarket + Daiso only two blocks away. Two blocks in a different direction is a large local park.
