I was very satisfied with this hotel, and like other hotels in Japan everything was very clean and the staff were numerous, professional, and helpful to the utmost. They made my stay at the hotel a very pleasant experience. The hotel's location was pretty good. Shopping and restaurants are nearby, with most of it being located in the nearby subway station (Sakae). Walking several blocks another way gets you to a much larger downtown area where there are many department stores. Local travel is pretty easy with the subway, although travel outside the city probably requires you to transfer at Nagoya station (two subway stops away). I was quite comfortable with the size of the double room, and - although the furniture was a bit dated - everything was clean and in full working order. If I'm ever in Nagoya again, I would be happy to stay here again.
