Rate: Approx $250 AUD per night
Received: Standard basic room (high level)

Nice hotel, rooms a bit older but very spacious (especially for Japan). Not a huge difference in room received, but nice views. The booking in the app updated approx 24 hours before to show the new room type. Late checkout was handy to utilise!
