Stayed here on business. It was actually supprisingly nice!
Access is a little difficult as it is on port island but you can get a free bus from Sannomiya station every 30 minuets which takes around 15 minuets to reach the hotel.
The cleanliness of the first room I stayed in (on the 11th floor) did leave a lot to be desired. The room had a strange odor around the desk area but overall it was a nice size and had excellent bathing facilities.
The next room I stayed in was very clean and had a slightly different decor. This was located on the 15th floor. The room keeping staff do not bother you like they do in other hotels I have stayed in in japan.
The facilities in the room included a TV (LCD Flat Panel), A prepaid movie box, A kettle, A refridgerator and wireless access. The wireless is usable but extremely slow at times.
I stayed in a single room and I was shocked at the size in comparison to other hotels. You are provided with a semi-double bed and plenty of space. The View from the window is also pleasent.
Nearby is a train station but it will cost you 200 yen to return to sannomiya. You might as well use the bus. The first bus is 7:30am so if you have business to attend earlier than this then I suggest the train.
In conclusion: I would reccomend this hotel for business people and familys who are looking for a low budget holiday in Japan. Avoid rooms other than the 15th floor though.
