Reviewed 1 September 2011

I actually stayed here for three weeks in _2007_ (the web site, maybe for good reasons, does not allow old reviews), working in Ikeda. The owners did not speak any English, but they were friendly to me, and tried to accommodate my wishes (translated by my Japanese colleague) in a very friendly way. It is a small traditional hotel, run by the owners (as far as I understand) with very little, if any, staff.

I understand they have traditional Japanese rooms with Tatami mats and the whole shebang, but I stayed in a "western room", with very nice hard pillows, etc. Everything was nice enough, and of course very clean, although it takes some time to figure out how to get hot water (although they explain/show it when you arrive) in the shower.

There is no breakfast, but you can make tea in the room, and the place is close to "downtown Ikeda" so a good breakfast is just two minutes away. Likewise, the railway station for the Hankyu railway to Osaka is four minutes away, so one might also stay in this place and commute to Osaka ...

Maybe the best thing about the place is that the place feels authentic Japanese.

All in all, I would be very happy to go back there if given the opportunity. Of course, without a Japanese person actually ordering a room for me, I might not be able to reserve a room.

Caveat: I ended up browsing this hotel again, but I would like to restate that my stay was in 2007, so things might have changed.
