    Okay Stay

    Although from exterior the hotel looks new, the interior is abit old. For 1 night stay, it’s alright. Typical small room. Breakfast was ok, which include Kumamoto Ramen on order basis. Tasty and good.

    A business type hotel and quite corporate. Clean with professional and helpful staff. Room reminded of being in an inside cabin of a ferry. Was ok as a base from which to watch rugby world cup.

    One of the staff here is rude and arrogant. While speaking without eye contact, he refused to help me for my laundry request. This hotel is definately not a good option for tourists.

    Don't stay here if you're driving...

    Arrived at the hotel and enquired with the front desk on how to enter the car park, but unfortunately there isn't one on-site (there are 2-3 parking bays in front of the hotel which aren't allowed to be used for some reason). The good news is the hotel does have an arrangement with a local carpark. The not so good news is the designated car park is on the wrong side of a one way system and wasted half an hour of our time to park the car. The only other nearby car parks charge significantly more. If you factor in that additional cost, you'd be better off staying elsewhere if you're driving. The hotel itself looks and feels like an APA hotel on the ground floor, some of this branding carries through to the common parts of the building on other floors, but the rest including the rooms, dining area and onsen are pretty shabby and not somewhere you'd choose to stay. Our room smelt mouldy, but there was an air freshening spray we used to mask the smell a little! The bed was comfortable. One staff member in particular was rude to us (very unusual for hotels in Japan), others we met were in training and were a little flustered by having to serve a customer (we didn't mind this so much as everyone has to learn). The other staff were courteous enough. The location is otherwise good within relatively easy walking distance to the main shopping / eating areas in town. I would not choose to stay here again and would think twice before staying in an APA Hotel again based on this experience.

    Friendly staff, we arrived earlier than check in time and still had been arranged well. Love the public spa!

    お風呂とエアコンが最悪。 ダブルの部屋取ったのに、風呂が小さすぎる。 冬なのに、エアコンから暖かい風が出てこない。 ベットの大きさ、部屋の大きさ、清潔さは良かったです。 繁華街から少し外れてますが、歩いて5分の範囲です。

    喫煙所にがない。外に出て道路で吸えって言われました。携帯灰皿持ってないし。 市内中心部は道路は禁煙エリアのような気もするけど。

    部屋付風呂の狭さに不満

    普通に立つのも難しいくらいのスペースしか無かった驚異の狭さのホスピタリティに驚愕したのと、シャンプーディスペンサーのカバーが壊れているのか、プッシュするとカバーが開いてしまい押さえながら使うという謎の行為でのシャワータイムと空いたカバーの中が強制的に見せられ、更にそこがカビているという事態にテンションが急降下。信頼していたアパクオリティにガッカリしてしまったが、今後に期待してしまうという謎のファン心理。
