This was not the first time we had stayed in a love hotel. They are branching out and offering overnight stays to tourists, even offering services in English. We booked this one because it was near where we needed to be, and all the other places around were full.
We couldn't quite believe how convenient it was from the station. We were looking for major roads and a 5-minute or more walk. In fact, the lefts and rights we had been given were minor roads and the distance from the station was less than one minute. Couldn't really be more convenient.
Discreet but friendly check in. Past the displays about the different facilities available in each room, up in the elevator and there was our room, behind a creeky door. Unlike regular hotels in Japan, space was no issue. Room to walk around, a lounge area, spacious bathroom, and a large bed - obviously the main event. Large TV with the usual interesting selection of movies. Some rather gaudy decorations but with a nice large room like this, we didn't care.
Quiet (sound-proofed, I guess), peaceful, comfortable. We got a good night's sleep.
No breakfast provided, but plenty of convenience stores in the neighbourhood.
Slightly expensive for the facilities offered, but everything else was just fine.More
