The hotel is dated, renovation is absolutely needed, but the room is clean. They don't have their own parking area, the one they provided is not far away though (1000 yen per night). They offer free drinks and ice cream, the free breakfast is just bread (3 or 4 kinds of choice). Stayed for 2 nights. It's not a very... More

We're very sad to say this was our worst stay in our honeymoon trip through Asia. The service was outstanding, staff and the manager always had a smile for us, they were very helpful and kind. The problem was the smell in the rooms. They gave us a first room that had a horrible smell, so we asked for a... More

I chose this hotel for its reasonable price and got much more than I expected. It didn't have a common bath or breakfast room, but it did have plenty of service. Staff were happy to store luggage until check in time, and they really wanted us to try all the free drinks and snacks they had available 24 hours. It... More

Free drink at the lobby 24hrs, staff is super friendly, patiently showed us how to get to the hotel carpark, and explained the fee. Only 5mins walk to the big AEON shopping mall. So many restaurants around the hotel. Location is perfect. The room is clean and neat. It is big room in Japanese hotel standard. Cannot see anything wrong... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights for visiting Tokushima Awa Odori Festival . The room (as all rooms in Japan) was small but clean and full of things to make you feel comfortable. At the front desk are available icecream, samples of cream, after-shave. shampoo, bath salts and all for free. Breakfast included (well not the best breakfast... More

A little run down but more than made up for by the good value/service. It's a short 5-10 minute walk from the train station, and the staff on reception are always incredibly friendly. The free ice-cream and breakfast pastries were a nice touch, and this was one of the best value business hotels we stayed at in Japan.

Hotel Maira could definitely dedicate more time to cleaning. The hotel is not charming enough to get a shabby-chic badge, so it just feels neglected. The bathroom constantly smelled of stale urine and the room itself reeked of mothballs. The AC unit, positioned right above the bed, dripped occasionally onto our sleeping heads below. These are all easily fixable things... More
