Reviewed 11 January 2017

Got a very cheap deal for this place. Location is 5 mins from the JR station which you can see from the tracks. Fish market is directly opposite on the other side of the track where cheap and godly sashimi can be had. Ask for a Fuji view room, windows can be opened slightly.

Room is well designed other than the separate toilet area which can be too cramp for larger people. Bathing area is spacious with a real bath tub. Standard tea making set in the room. Breakfast is good for Japanese palette but cheap breakfast places can be found nearby.

Staff can speak basic English and will try their best to answer your questions.

Convenient to train and bus to Miho Beach. Short hop to the Bullet train at Shizuoka too (just a few stops). We enjoyed the nearby mall, shops restaurants and breakfast at the hotel too. Room was clean and quiet - staff helpful. Nice area. Seems a businessman clientele but we didn't mind. We recommend this hotel even though we never saw Mount Fuji!

I never received a check-in time that explicitly stated when to enter the hotel, and so I arrived at 1pm and was told that the check-in is 3PM. The lady at the service desk (who spoke english quite well) made a phone call, and informed us that she contacted the cleaners and asked if they could prioritise cleaning our room so that we could check in early. She then provided us with water (it was a hot day so we appreciated this) and asked us to sit down whilst we wait. Once we got to our room, we understand that it was a period to tidy the rooms, however there were sheets and linen etc all over the hallway and it just didn't seem efficient or professional. However, we didn't mind too much and the cleaners were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Just a heads up, they provide tickets for the breakfast however once you look at them, they don't actually state the time. I found out that the check-out time is 10AM (which was way too early for me) and had to assume that the breakfast would end at that time. On my last day I went down at about 9:35AM and then saw a huge sign saying that the last ORDERS for breakfast close at 9:30AM! This would have been helpful if it was written on the breakfast tickets! Overall, the room was quite nice and the location was amazing in regards to convenience. It's probably about a 2 minute walk from the train station (essentially at the end of the station).

The hotel is really near to the train station (5mins) which is really convenient (Shuttle bus to S-Pulse Dream Plaza is there as well).

Hotel staff was friendly and able to communicate in English.
The room that we had (812) was clean and comfortable. It came with a wet and dry toilet. The bed was really comfy (we had been staying at Airbnb and the bed was an excellent relived).

Morning breakfast variety was not bad with a mixture of Japanese and Western food.

The best part is the view from the room where Mt Fuji could be seen!!! Simply amazing!!!

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the train tracks for view of Mt Fuji!
