Hotel is right opposite to Tsuchiura station where you can travel to Tokyo in 30-35 mins. This hotel is old and needs some decoration. Rooms are small, bathroom very small. Almost typical student accomodation in a University halls. Bed was very uncomfortable. Lift always makes strange noise. People at the reception always very helpful and polite. You go to a resturant next door for brakefast. It is fairly good Chinese resturant. Price very reasonable.
