Me & my friends stayed here to go to the Fat Wreck 25 years show. This hotel was the perfect location for that, walking distance to the venue and easy to get to from the train station too. The hotel is also quite posh compared to other places we stayed in Japan and the service was excellent! Would recommend for...

Our first impression upon check in was not great because we were placed on a smoking floor and a smoking room, so it smelled really bad. The A/C was not very strong so the room was musty, smelly, and rather warm. After the first night, however, we changed rooms to a non-smoking floor and it was much better. Our room...

This was the 2nd time we have stayed at this hotel. Although it is not the type of hotel we would normally choose, there are a couple of things I really like about it. Firstly it is very conveniently located to a railway station on the JR Keiyo line that gives convenient access to Tokyo (40 mins); it is also...

Awesome hotel in Chiba, right near the Bay with amazing views overlooking the ocean, close to the Marlins' Stadium, parks, shopping malls, and the Makuhari stations to get anywhere in Tokyo you want in no time. The staff is extremely nice and very helpful and while not all of them speak English the ones that do do so very well....

Chose to stay at Hotel Franc as I was looking for a hotel near Makuhari Messe for a concert. Location is superb and only about 10-15 mins walk to Makuhari Messe. 5 mins walk to Kaihinmakuhari station and lots of shops and restaurants all next to each other. I did not have to worry about the concert ending late because...

This is my second time staying here to attend a conference at the Makuhari Messe nearby. The location is very convenient to the convention centre with only a 10min walk, and close to the Kaihinmakuhari station and a host of shops and restaurants around the station. The single rooms are very small but this time I got a twin room...
