Very good value. Room was spacious & clean. Furnishings & decor were a tad on the old side, however, this is budget accommodation & suited my needs very well. If you are looking for a modern, flash hotel, then this is not for you.
Staff were very helpful & kind. Little English spoken, however, this adds to the charm. Hearty, inexpensive breakfast.
Only 6 minutes walk to JR Yamagata station, so transport not an issue. Located amongst shops, restaurants etc -with convenience store close by.
