Check it Out! “JR Kyushu Hotel Blossom Shinjuku” Explicit Review

I stayed at "JR Kyushu Hotel Blossom Shinjuku." It has only been 5 years since it opened, so the rooms were very clean, the ceiling was high and the facilities in the room were clean and easy to use. The bathroom and toilet were also spacious. Because it is located on a street behind Koshu Kaido, you can not see a nice view from the hotel, but you can relax in bed while watching TV on a big screen.

Summary

I am satisfied with my stay at “JR Kyushu Hotel Blossom Shinjuku.” For business trips, there are desks and chairs in the room, so you don’t have to go to a coffee shop. At night, you can relax while watching TV on a large screen while lying on a big bed. Because the location of the hotel is in a back alley, it was very quiet. There are several hotels of the same price range in the vicinity, but I think this hotel is the best out of the all if cleanness satisfies you.
