THE breakfast is FANTASTIC for only a 100 yen (about $1)!! The location to the bus terminal to get to airport is great (block away) and the ferry terminal (a block away) for the other island adventures. Washer and dryer were ok in the hallway (except again, no A/C in hallway); they will provide a fan upon request (do ask for one)
NO A/C in hallways (its brutal to walk up 3 stories in the interior heat); no coffee machine in room; room was very small; A/C in room was barely sufficient (and the control device was only in Japanese, no English markings or even symbols on it);
Pretty clean, very quiet, perfect location, amazing cheap breakfast
Host treats you like a baby but is otherwise nice. First question asked before introductions is are you a smoker despite "no smoking" mentioned in the booking and signs in room. Also walks you up 2 staircases to explain unnecessary things that could be said at the counter. Communication could be better. Single bed is small and not firm enough. Only 1 pillow. Need at least two.
The place is clean, everyday they clean the rooms and change towels and other stuff
The price is very very high compared to the service offered: the Reception is always empty (wi fi does not work but i cant tell to anyone...) and the hotel is super hot, upstairs and downstairs does not match too much so i was a bit confused we saw the woman when we checked in and she'ss not speaking english. We met other guests at the entranc with the same feeling so i think the pictures and rates are a bit unfair. It's the first time that happen to me in Japan but i was very upset by the quality/price ratio, for the same price you can find other options.
Just next to the port and bus terminal hence you have buses from the airport and can also go to Kabira Bay. Good for eating places too, all within walking distance. Nice owner who makes a pretty breakfast for only 100 yen, who cleans the rooms every day. Comfortable futon beds. Washing machine and dryer available for a small price and there was a fridge in the corridor.
You do not have windows that offer you a view, so it was dark and a little claustrophobic in the rooms. For the price, though the rooms were en-suite, they were basic.
My friend and I had a comfortable stay. The hotel is near the port and bus terminal. The transport is very convenient. The owner is very nice and helpful. Breakfast is worth to try.
