We left the hotel today after 3 nights and whilst there are renovations underway our stay was not majorily disrupted. The lift was a bit messy and there is currently no bar and only one cafe, where you take breakfast. Did not suffer from paint smells or mouldy bathrooms as others have mentioned.
This a fairly budget option hotel in Takamaya and you get what you pay for. I, therefore, thought it was a reasonable deal for the cost.
It certainly isnt a hotel that will wow you but it is functional with clean and fairly good size rooms. It is in need of updating so should be improved once
renovations complete, i think in December.
One of the main benefits is that it is only a few mins walk from the station but it is still pretty quiet.
No onsen on site, unfortunately, but there is a sauna and a number of
large individual jacuzzi baths, all spotlessly clean. There is also a massage service which is ok if you like pressure point massage - I got a fair deal at 5500y for 70 mins.
Breakfast was included in our room rate. It was a bit basic and not overly high quality but it was a
hot and cold buffet and some of the options changed daily.
The main thing i didn't like about this hotel was that we found it is used mainly by european tour groups, so didn't feel very Japanese. As a consequence a reasonable level of english is spoken by most of the staff.
Overall i feel this hotel offers good value for money. less
