3.45km from Sushi Edo YamatedaiI arrived at the hotel early, and they gave me an early check- in, much appreciated. I was given Room 619, a spacious room with a double bed, a large work desk, big flat- screen TV, a large closet and a larger than usual bathroom. Excellent room. The internet was fast all the time. The bedding was excellent and there were memory foam and regular pillows on the bed. The bed was firm and comfortable, and the window opened wide for lots of fresh air, so I slept well. The bathroom functioned well; it was styled like the classic biz hotel bathroom, but with a lot more space and a nice temperature- control shower / tub armature. The amenities were above standard. Breakfast was good, with a reasonable selection and good quality. I was hoping that the lobby bakery’s goods would be on offer for breakfast, but alas. The staff were excellent, very helpful and thoughtful. The fellow who checked me in took the time to walk around the hotel to the garage area to show me the best place to stow my bicycle. Very thoughtful and caring. The hotel has lots of meeting rooms on several floors, and a number of good shops adjacent to the lobby. There is a Lawson konbini which can be entered via the lobby. The bakery is excellent and offers gift- wrapped goods to take back to friends. The hotel has a lot of charm and though not close to the station, it is close to the castle grounds and many of the restaurants.
