  • Nice mid level hotel mostly oriented towards local Japanese guests. Room was small but efficient. Walking distance from historic area where i had great local dining experience. Hotel breakfast was good and espresso machine was a nice feature. I would stay again.
  • New. Pretty. But nothing special. Looks as if it might have been an urban renewal project of some sort.
