Convenient to Niigata Station; that's all.
Hotel entrance very difficult to locate; Huge sign on the side of the building with hotel name, but what is NOT clear is that the hotel starts on the 4th floor; 1st through 3rd floors are retail. 2 elevator banks can take you to the 4th floor, but there is not much signage, sad to say. Restaurant is convenient; has good prices. Coffee/tea etc. in reception area.
Hauling luggage from the train station is not convenient; taxi stand is on the other side of the station. Sadly, reception staff do not have much English. The maid on my floor was much more fluent, and also much friendlier. They do hold luggage; but you are not allowed to check in even 10 minutes early. Typical small hotel room; heat is controlled centrally - you can set the rate of the fan only. You can, however, open the window! Decent hotel, good fast food and take out in the train station nearby. Be aware that Niigata is not a friendly city to non-Japanese tourists. All written tourist info was in Japanese. Taxi drivers were friendly and excellent, as long as you have written addresses for them to use.
