It’s absolutely comfortable staying here, like a tiny studio space with smaller room amenities. The beds themselves are out of this world! Some type of memory foam. Very firm and stupendous for sleeping on and lounging around during the day or night. The bathrooms are splendid. Though the toilet paper was a bit tough, it’s eco-friendlier and literally, melts, if touched by water even in your hands. There’s a popular breakfast buffet. Very filling, offering a wide variety of choices every day. And an onsen, and a decent sized gym to workout. However the space itself is very limiting. Good modern equipment for its size. Great for long to short term stays. Pleasantly within distance of supermarkets, buses, in and around the city center.

We traveled around Japan and stayed at over 20 accommodations. This is definitely one of the best hotels we visited. The room, toilet and bathroom were clean during our stay. My only critique is the location of the smoking room. Due to air flow, you can smell heavy smoke in the lobby even when the smoking room is located at the back of the hotel. Other than that, the staff provided top-notch customer service. They were the only hotel we stayed that delivers your luggage to your room if you checked in early. They take guest satisfaction seriously.
