excellent location and clean”

conveniently located near Sakae station exit 13. The hotel's "Smile" logo is very easy to find. the room is clean and the bed is comfortable. They offer regular rooms and Japanese-style rooms. there are lots of yummy restaurants within the hotel vicinity. Donkihote is just outside Sakae station exit 1, while the Oasis 21 is located outside Sakae station Exit 4.

Worth the money”

The hotel is not that close to subway nearest exit (exit 13) if you have heavy luggage but not too far. Exit 13 don't have elevator or escalator. I'm not sure this is the best way but I cross the road to Mitsugoshi department store which I think is the nearest store and go down to underground floor (the floor that have supermarket) and use the department exit linked to subway. The room is new and clean and overall is good, worth the money. Another good thing is I sent the luggage to the hotel by using delivery service and this hotel pay a delivery deposit for me.

Good value around the area, recommend ”

I stayed here for one night. The best score is the price, size of room compare to the same price hotel. The hotel locate near the shopping street. There're lot of parking lot nearby which cost you around 1,000 - 1,200 yen/night. The cleanliness is 4 stars because the dust in the AC is noticeable but room is clean overall. I booked smoking room type(no non-smoking left on that day) but there's no smell of smoke at all which is really great for me.
