There was a good number of amenities, the location is pretty convenient, and the television in the room was quite large. The staff were nice.
Minimal thermostat control, layout of the room was claustrophobic, the breakfast buffet was not terribly appetizing.
It's Japan, rooms are small
The staff is very nice and helpful, even if you don't speak any Japanese. You can keep your luggage at the hotel before and after checking in or out.
Japan is tight on space, so be prepared for a small room. If the bed was a little higher off the ground suitcases could fit easily. The step out of the bathroom is nearly a foot drop, I fell out of the bathroom a bunch of times.
Cozy room good for simple traveler
Breakfast buffet was nice. Subway right outside. Convince stores and restaurants outside.
Price. Double what I paid for a similar room in Tokyo.
