Good hotel”

The hotel is easy to find. From the Sakae station you go to exit no.13 and walk from the station about 5 minutes. And due to the Sakae station is a big station.there are a lot of exit and connect to the shopping mall. You can use their elevator to go to the ground floor. But if you are check out early in the morning. It might be trouble if you have a big luggage cause the shopping mall is not open yet. You have to bring luggage down by stair. There are club around the hotel. But it safe. I stay with my sister and nobody disturb you. The bed is bigger than the the other hotel in Japan that I ever seen. Staff is very nice. It worth to stay here. If I go to Nagoya I will stay there again.

Very Good Hotel”

Location is very good, near Sakae Subway Station and Centrair Limousine Bus Stop at Tokyu so it is convenient if you have big luggage for airport transfer. The staffs always smiling especially the young woman who received me. The room facing the road is slightly bigger than the one facing the other. I could use some food/snack vending machines there but that's not a big deal since there are a lot of food options at Sakae. Will stay there again if I ever go to Nagoya.

Sakae subway station exit 13 is around 600m walk away and if you have big luggage is a pain as there is no escalator and you need to drag ur bags all the way from the station to the hotel.

I stayed here for one night. The best score is the price, size of room compare to the same price hotel. The hotel locate near the shopping street. There're lot of parking lot nearby which cost you around 1,000 - 1,200 yen/night. The cleanliness is 4 stars because the dust in the AC is noticeable but room is clean overall. I booked smoking room type(no non-smoking left on that day) but there's no smell of smoke at all which is really great for me.
