I have stayed in a lot of hotels but this one was very very old ; the thing that bothered me the most was the fact that the ladies public bath was on the first floor, where anyone could walk in from outside without being stopped. In corona times, I was the only woman in the bath and felt so unsafe !

Old and dirty”

It was very expensive for what was received. No restaurant, no karaoke. The public bath was fine. The room interior was from the 1980s. The floor had stains, hair and dirt on it. The futon sheet had fresh, bloody snot on it. The tatami was soft in places. The refrigerator was for selling drinks, but empty. The hot water container had small particles of dirt in it. The staff didn't apologize much, at all, but they did correct the issues. The parking lot is down the street. We were very dissatisfied with our stay. We will never go back and recommend that you don't go there. Poor services.
