From the train station we took a taxi to go to the hotel. The taxi driver could not locate this hotel on his GPS and he called the hotel to get the directions. He dropped us on the main street and told us to take a small side street to find the hotel. We were not sure whether we made the right choice until we went inside. Kanra is a small boutique hotel with excellent team of receptionists. This hotel is located very close to a major shrine and a short distance to a shopping district.
We stayed here for 3 days in a very spacious, comfortable, clean and bright penthouse suite. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. They literally pampered us. We really felt sad to leave this place.
