Summary

The room, bath and toilet was clean and satisfying. However, it was difficult to work in the hotel on my computer, because the room was very small. There are various things such as restaurants, mass retailers, and department stores around the hotel, so after spending time outside, you can come back and relax in your room. The night view from the window was also beautiful.
