Good location
The train rapid stops at Notogawa station where it is really close to the hotel and this makes my life easier.

Convenient to train station
Right next to train station. Nice modern interior. Convenient to supermarket.
This was just a stopover for me, so I was only in need of a basic room. This place turned out to be more stylish and modern than most business hotels, and I was pleasantly surprised to find out they had washers/dryers. There is also a public bath/sauna that looked pretty nice but I was too tired to use it. It was also very helpful to me that a huge supermarket was next door. The staff was courteous, but my only criticism is they were overly flustered by the fact that I only speak basic Japanese—I've traveled extensively in Japan and that only rarely happens. I also have to say that the town of Notogawa seems to be a pretty dreary little place (except for the cute girl working at the Mr. Donut. She was a sweetheart!)

great location but no wifi in the room
location, location, price
The hotel was initially very hard to find but once you have find it, it so easy. It's just left side of the Notogawa station but no sign in ENglish, all are in Japanese including the letter.

Easy access to Hikone
Next to train station, good Japanese breakfast
Right outside the train station. Provide free Japanese breakfast and free coffee in the common area. There are a few wholesale warehouse in front of the hotel selling value for money dried food stuffs, clothing and DIY items.

Seemed like a fairly new, clean hotel
Location, Internet, clean
Entrance was a little hard to find, but other than that everything was good here.

Beautiful scenary, historical destinatioact amazin
Extremely near the train station!
The room is not big, even not enough to open up two 29" luggages. However it's really near the train station. It's easy to travel around Hikone, Omihanchiman...and so on.

Have booked Twin but allocated to an Economy room
Location, near to a JR train station and a supermarket
Very disappoited with this booking! Hotel staff converse limited English so couldn't clarified our query, even Agoda did not help to clarify with hotel after I have emailed them. The room booked and paid for was meant to be a middle class Twin but we were allocated with their smallest and economy room which is of a cheaper rate as shown
