Well, it wasn’t that cheap, but for budget travellers like me and my husband, staying at Hotel JAL City was a relaxing way to end our trip. We specifically chose a hotel after days of staying at guesthouses and airbnbs as we travelled from Tokyo to Hakuba to Magome and finally Nagoya. We only spent a night here, and we wished it was more! From the train station, it was a 10-15-minute walk to the hotel. We were tired but Nagoya at night was beautiful, so it was fine. It was a bit far from the restaurants, although there was a nearby tax-free grocery store that we took advantage of before we left. The size of the room was decent for a couple, the double bed was big enough and comfortable, and the linens were fresh-smelling and very clean. The closet was spacious enough for all our stuff. The room was basic, and the desk and chair could only be used by one person at a time (we had to bring work, ugh). The bathroom, I loved! It had two areas: the toilet with the sink and mirror and the shower area, which included a separate bathtub. Usually the shower head is over the bathtub, but not here. I was able to use the bath soak I got from Muji earlier that day. Complementary stuff like coffee drip, tea, and shampoo were provided in the lobby for guests to grab. They even had this cool gel pad for your tired feet. On the morning of our last day, the front desk allowed us to leave our bags with them so we could go around Nagoya. Our flight was in the evening. They were also helpful when asked for directions. They tried hard to give me the exact directions despite the lack of English. This I really appreciated. Overall, our stay had been great.…
The actual visit date was July 2019. Since this hotel was grand opening on January 2019. Everything was very new and clean. It was surprise that the bathroom and bathtub was quite big (compare to other Japanese Hotel).
I felt like the room was missing something essential and was customized to someone that aren't like me. There was a low desk and a chair, which also made it less easy to get comfortable. I didn't use the restaurant. Awkwardly customized for Japanese ladies, I felt.
Although the Hotel is slightly away from the train stations, I don't mind the 17 min walk with interesting sights and scenery. The staffs are well verse with English and very very efficient. The attended to all my request diligently. The bed and pillows were just astoundingly comfortable. They encourage minimum wastage as such, they provided assortments of amenities like shampoo, shower cap at the reception and we only take what we need. On my last night ( 27Nov 2019), my sweater was accidentally torn, I ask for a sewing kit at 4 am and in less that 10 min, the reception sent it to my room directly. I was so overly touched. My utmost appreciation to that hotel staff. Truly enjoyed my stay..
Stayed here for 1 night and it was a pleasant stopover. The front desk could speak English well. Our rooms were spacious and well designed. The basic toiletries were provided in the room. For other items such as shower cap, bath salts, drip coffee we could take it from the lobby. We drove and could park at the hotel carpark for a fee (1500 yen if I remember correctly). The location is not that central though. There are many bars nearby but not many restaurant options. Breakfast was pleasant. Their spread was balanced for western and Japanese selection.
Lovely friendly staff. Nice welcome on arrival and willing to help with directions etc. Clean room, really comfy beds. Good location, plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. Didn't eat in restaurant but food looked good.
I stayed this hotel for three nights. The hotel is very new, just opened at January 2019. The size of the room is good, not as small as other hotels in Japan. I personally like the pillows very much. The hotel offers two kind of pillows, and one of the pillows is the best I've ever had in Japan. The air conditioner is perfect. I hardly hear any noise when I sleep. Everything is perfect to me.
The hotel is quiet nice and well located. The staff is also friendly and efficient. But, many things should still be translated in english, in the room and in the restaurant as well. Breakfast is fine, but the western part could be improved.
Lovely hotel, with friendly staff and decent size rooms for Japanese standards. Arrived by train and it was about a 20 minute walk from the station. Maybe take a taxi if you have lots of bags. The location is really good and there was an excellent yakitori restaurant opposite with an English menu. Definitely recommend.
We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is new and the room was nice and very clean. The room is not big but its enough for 2 adults and one child. It is typical in Japan that rooms are smaller comparing to the U.S. Front desk staffs were friendly. Train station is about 3 to 4 blocks away. We had a very comfortable stay and will definitely consider this hotel again when we go back to Nagoya.
