Summary

I am happy that I got to stay at this hotel. Although it was in the city center, the quiet environment where you can enjoy the nature was the best. The hotel is a 13-story building that is not so tall, but there are no tall buildings around, so it has a good view, and since this is the only hotel in addition to the stadium and other facilities, the location is special. The hotel is a stunning space like a gallery with artworks everywhere, and since it just opened, the facilities were new and easy to use. Because the hotel is close to the station, it is a hotel that I would recommend staying at for sightseeing or for business.
