It’s an ultimate luxury.

thank you for helping me. I was able to relax slowly in the calm that does not make me feel old. Especially the dinner was very delicious and I was satisfied. In addition, check-out at 12:00 was able to make good use of the time in the morning and was thankful.

Everyone's employees kindly stayed overnight due to attentive customer service, but I was able to spend very comfortably. Staff The guidebook of local recommended shops (souvenirs and restaurants) was in the room, which was very interesting to refer to, but it was disappointing that there were shops on holidays when I actually visited did. The meal and the bath were perfect, relaxing comfortably at 12 o'clock check out.

I could not make a reservation at all times and finally stayed. Because the old hotel was renovated, the facility is old, but service and meal are very good, so it does not bother me. Champagne of service is never cheap but satisfactory. Timing of meals is good, I feel a heartfelt attitude. Breakfast is also homemade and warm. I went to stay for Mr. Furukawa, not for sightseeing purpose, but it was contents of great satisfaction. I would like to take care of you again.
