    Small room, rock hard bed, uncomfortable bathroom. Food in the 10th floor restaurant excellent, nice view of castle. Good place for a meeting or dinner, wouldn't recommend for overnight stay.

    Can I leave the luggage at the hotel before checking in? Because I plan to arrive to Kumamoto station at 12.00pm and visit the the castle later. In the evening, I would check in at the hotel at 4 or 5 pm.

    Can't say for sure but I would think so. You may even be able to check in early.
