The hotel is located along Shinano River. It's really close to the famous "Bandai Bridge" and the old town of Niigata called "Furumachi". There are many good restaurants and bars around the area. The hotel seems a bit old, but it's quite comfortable.

I was on business and hadn't done any sightseeing other than walking to the nearby shops and pub street. I did see plenty of brochures at the desk and the concierge was very attentive. We took the bullet train to Tokyo as we flew out of Haneda. Best to call up the hotel and ask. Sorry I'm not that much help on your questions.

"Ask for a room with a view over the river. It only costs a small amount extra, but is well worth it."
