This is a pretty new hotel, so everything looks good. Room is standard Japanese size, my wife and I could barely opened our 2 suitcases. This hotel is in a 5-10 minutes walking distance to many restaurants and shopping centers. If you drive, better let the hotel know you need a parking as parking space is limited.

Let me start off with a warning. This hotel group has more then one hotel in Nagoya and based on my experience you have to be absolutely clear about which of the two locations you want to book. One is closer to the train station and this one.... Sakae Ekimae is about 2.5 km from the train station which is basically either 2 subway stops and a 3 minute walk or about a Y1200 taxi ride away. That aside, very nice new hotel, good night's sleep, great front desk support, fast internet and as others have mentioned, very unique pillows and lighting. We had a 14th floor room and it was completely quiet. Breakfast was very good and worth adding on. There are many restaurants in the area and easy access via subway to almost any part of the city. The 7-11 downstairs which are nothing like US 7-11s unfortunately really did put the convenience back into what convenience stores were meant to be. As I mentioned in another review, if you don't have a JR Rail pass, the Meitetsu Nagoya Main Line which is in it's own building next to the JR station offers excellent alternative routes and is very convenient to to getting to NGO (Centrair) on their 28 minute limited express.

Spacious lobby, friendly and accomodating front desk personnels. Second level has a free flowing drinks, coffee, tea, juice, soda... from 2pm to 11pm. Very near Sakae Station Exit 1, and Oasis 21. Room was clean, and cozy, comfortable bed. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

The hotel is fairly new. Great location. Very close to shopping area. 7-eleven is on the ground floor. Clean and excellent service. Fast checkin and check out. The breakfast is at 1200yen but worths it. The welcome drink is till late at night. A close walk to the bus station to the Chubu airport which is the bus no 9 at the Oasis. Will definitely stay here again!

Stayed at Vessel Inn with my two sons in April after we left Tokyo. We stayed in two separate rooms. The location was great, about 3-5mins walk to the station. A 7-11 convenience store was located downstairs and has internal access to the hotel, very convenient. Staffs were fantastic. Hotel even provides masks and women amenities at the lobby. After 2pm, they offer free drinks. Checked in was quick and easy. Room was ok, typical boutique size. Bathroom has shower over bath and toilet with heated seat. Very clean and modern decor. Internet was quick and stable. USB charging ports located at the bedhead. Bed was comfortable and area was quiet. Hotel has washing machine/dryer which was a bonue. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Great location.
