    Superb

    The room is cosy and to my surprise, it's bigger than I expected. The single bed is actually good for 2 persons. There's Starbucks on the ground floor which is connected to the hotel. Very convenient. From the entrance, you couldn't tell it's a hotel.

    Very good

    location of the hotel was quite central. within a minute walk to the subway station. the single room was small though functional and clean. with starbuck (with wifi) at the lobby was a bonus.

    it would be great if the temperature of the room can be controlled.

    古さは感じられたものの、清潔で気持ちよく休むことができた。またスターバックスや売店が併設されていたため、朝食や夜食に困ることがなくよかった。

    部屋が狭く古くさい感じがあった。 クルクルドライヤーなどの貸しなかった。 売店の営業時間が短かった。
