A pleasant antique hotel on top of the hill
The hotel was on sale on Expedia so I booked a family room for one night for the last days of my itinerary. The hotel is some distance away from Kencho-mae and may be better accessed by bus (No. 9; 14; 25; 46; 97) or private car as walking may be a hassle.The facilities were within the expectations of an ordinary 3-4 star hotel although there was no swimming pool. We were greeted with free samples of the local chinsuko cookies and tea free of charge on a family sized dining table. The room and beds were spacious and comfortable. The buffet breakfast menu was satisfying although it was primarily a western style breakfast (sausages, fried eggs, ham) with some but limited local Japanese selections. Facilities and service aside, the hotel had a pleasant, antiquated atmosphere which I adored.
