I was very impressed overall by this hotel. The room was huge (and not just by Japanese standards); it was really more like an apartment than a business hotel. My room included a small kitchenette, wood floors and a leather fold-down couch/bed (in addition to a regular bed). I had a corner room that had expansive windows along two walls, although the view wasn't exactly inspiring.
Plenty of free amenities available at the front desk, including laundry soap, bath salts, bottled water and the usual shower amenities. Also available are a portable heater, dehumidifier, umbrellas and other small electronics/appliances. There is also an extensive VoD option for the TV.
The hotel is well-maintained: the elevator was clean and looked new, as did the carpets in the hotel's hallways.
My only complaint is the location; it's 10 minutes on foot from Keikyu-Kawasaki Station or a bit longer from Kawasaki Station, but the directions are somewhat unclear as the hotel is off the main streets in a more residential (/red light) area. I lived in Japan for 2 years and still found it a bit difficult to navigate at first, so bring a good map.
Set between Yokohama and Tokyo, Kawasaki is technically considered part of the Great Tokyo region. A main draw in this area is the Kawasaki Daishi temple, built in 1128 and famous for preventing misfortunes. A stop at the Nihon Minka-en (Japan Open-Air Folk House Museum) presents reconstructions of 24 historical buildings from 15 prefectures, dating from the late 17th to the early 20th centuries.
