This was the 1st hotel in our Japan trip, we choose this hotel due to the location near a JR station and the mount Fuji. Location was indeed very near the JR Shimizu station (Tokaido main line) and this was very usefull, since we would like to use our JR rail passes. The hotel self was furthermore not very special,...

Got a very cheap deal for this place. Location is 5 mins from the JR station which you can see from the tracks. Fish market is directly opposite on the other side of the track where cheap and godly sashimi can be had. Ask for a Fuji view room, windows can be opened slightly. Room is well designed other than...

Convenient to train and bus to Miho Beach. Short hop to the Bullet train at Shizuoka too (just a few stops). We enjoyed the nearby mall, shops restaurants and breakfast at the hotel too. Room was clean and quiet - staff helpful. Nice area. Seems a businessman clientele but we didn't mind. We recommend this hotel even though we never...

I never received a check-in time that explicitly stated when to enter the hotel, and so I arrived at 1pm and was told that the check-in is 3PM. The lady at the service desk (who spoke english quite well) made a phone call, and informed us that she contacted the cleaners and asked if they could prioritise cleaning our room...

The hotel is really near to the train station (5mins) which is really convenient (Shuttle bus to S-Pulse Dream Plaza is there as well). Hotel staff was friendly and able to communicate in English. The room that we had (812) was clean and comfortable. It came with a wet and dry toilet. The bed was really comfy (we had been...

Stayed 3 nights; very convenient as a base to explore. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful and spoke English very well. Room was very nice and had a large shower room separate from the toilet. Nice change. Buffet breakfast was nice. Lots of shopping very close.

A comfortable hotel near to public transport and food options. The room was clean, well appointed and comfortable. I liked that I could open the windows for fresh air. The deep bath tub was a nice touch as was the robe. Wifi was fast and reliable. I really liked this hotel.

The room refrigerator is not cold enough. But all the others in the room is great! I come to this hotel again when I come to Japan next time. I have still my Japanese holiday less than two weeks. Hotel staff is friendly and the hotel location excellent. :)
