TravelPod Member ReviewsItako Hotel
This hotel was extremely well kept.
Clean, tidy, terrific staff and so many facilities.
There was a public bath, which was highlight of my time there, and also a really well set out function room.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who passes through the area. You will not be disappointed.
