This hotel may be mostly a business hotel, but it's also a very good jumping-off point for the attractions of the Shimanami Kaido, as well as being 15-20 minutes’ walk from Imabari Castle. It's located across the street from Imabari’s train station (which also has a car-rental outlet.) Free wired-only Internet, speeds consistently ~45Mbps. Room rate includes breakfast buffet, with good-quality Japanese and Western options. Well-appointed modern rooms, though without room safes and using metal keys -- to be dropped off at the front desk when you’re away from the property -- rather than key cards. Friendly staff at front desk and breakfast bar.
