Pleasant debut. This was my first time staying with Super Hotel. The main reason for choosing Super Hotel this time round was its strategic location to the train station. At the end of my stay here, I was pleasantly satisfied with various aspects of this hotel, to the point that there is nothing to nitpick about. One of the features I like to rave about Super Hotel is their extraordinary collection (in my opinion) of pillows to choose from at the front desk - catered to ensure hotel guests get a good night rest. Apart from that, their complimentary breakfast selection offered is one of the best when compared to equivalent budget business hotels in Japan. Have stayed in several Super Hotel after that (in Matsumoto and Osaka) and have experienced similar service standards in all these branches I have stayed in. Follow a separate post I have written for Super Hotel Matsumoto Ekimae.


Double deck bed. Similar to other competitors with same operating model, all basic amenities are well taken care of here. In Super Hotel, an electronic lock system is utilised for their guestrooms. Upon check-in, the staff will issue a slip of paper with a numerical password. Guest will have to key in the password on the number padlock found on the door of the assigned room in order to unlock it. Do carry this slip of paper when you leave the room or alternatively take a photo of the password as soon as you receive it. My parents stayed in the Super Room which can occupy up to two person. It comprises of two beds - a double bed which is 140 cm in width and a single bed on the upper deck. I did a quick check on their hotel website and realised that the maximum occupants per room has been reduced to two for this particular branch (I recalled for a Super Room in the past, it was able to hold up to three person). Therefore, do take note of this limitation when making the room reservation.
