Worth the money”

Hotel Taiyo has a great location. It's just a couple of minutes walk to the subway and a few minutes going to the JR Shin-Imamiya Station. There are food places and convenience stores near the place. The hotel staff are very kind and accommodating. The check-in and check out were very easy. The hotel place is old so do not expect something fancy. Maybe if they could add another elevator that would be better and shower rooms. Although they have a public bathroom,it will be better if they have nore shower rooms. As far as I know they only have 5 for the whole hotel. They are on the 1st to 3rd floor. They also have coin laundry and hair dryers on the 1st floor and a public space too. The twin room that we got has enough space for 2. Overall, I would recommend this to those who are on a budget.
