We did not rent a car, so having a location that we could access public transportation easily was important to us. We rode the monorail from the airport then walked 10 minutes from the monorail to the hotel. The Hotel was clean and had the expected amenities. I thought the room was small until I experienced other hotels in Japan. It was for Japan a pretty good size room. This was a sudden trip that my mother-in-law decided to arrange. None of us speaks Japanese and with only 3 months notice of the trip, working, full time, and building a new house none of us had a chance to take a crash course in Japanese. Contrary to some people's reasurrance to us, LOL....not everyone in Japan speaks English and there is not more English in Okinawa. We experienced a language barrier of course. This Hotel must be usually booked by people who speak Japanese because no one at the front desk during the 5 days we were there spoke English, but they were extremely helpful and patient with us anyway. Somehow with pantomine, pointing at maps, the few words of English they knew and the few words of Japanese my husband remembered from after school classes and a few college courses we managed to get good directions and advise from the staff. There was a young bell man that seemed to know more English than the rest. The staff always went the extra mile to help us. The beds were comfortable and clean. There was a wonderful market across from the hotel where we went everyday. We could get to the monorail easily then from there to the Naha Bus Terminal. Beware in Naha, most places do not open before 10:00am. That was a surprise to me. This hotel does not have room service. If you need breakfast before 10:00 am, you will need to buy it before you go to sleep in the evening or go to eat at the McDonald's that opens at 6:00 am. The market and the Department store have a lot of great food that you can put in the little frig in your room.
