Good hotel for the budget traveler”

I stayed here for one night on my way to Shikoku. It's a good hotel for the money. Staff was very friendly and even called to tell me that I'd left an item in my room. They sent it to me at my request (and my expense of course) by express mail which I greatly appreciated.

Great location”

I stayed in Wakayama for work this time. The work location was within walking distance, and I was relieved and healed even after returning to my room because I could see Wakayama Castle from my room.
