Perhaps it was due to the holiday crowds but I did not find the service to be warm and attentive at all like what I had come to expect from hotels in Japan. The rooms are quite dated, at least the family rooms were. The bathroom can use a huge makeover as it smelled and looked like the 90s. It was clean for sure but it’s quite old and had a very an odd, tight layout. |The bright spot in the stay was the breakfast buffet! Wow, there was something for everyone and canned across cuisines! Service was great at the buffet and since it was up top, the view was beautiful too.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating with helping us set up luggage forwarding and ordering a taxi. The hotel is in a very convenient location, with train entrances just a few steps away.
