It's not quite accurate to describe this property as a "hotel" or even a "guesthouse." What it offers is a furnished room, with none of the services you normally expect from a hotel or a guesthouse.
The room is large by Japanese standard, and the location is lovely. With ordinary families going about their days, with the voices of the children from the nearby kindergarten, with a small shrine at the intersection, it feels cozy. The Keihan train station is just 7 minutes' walk away, and a cluster of restaurants around the station serve reasonably priced food late into the night.
However, there’s nobody to take out the garbage from your room, nobody to do your bed, nobody to explain how the heater works (the heater remote buttons are in Japanese). My microwave seems uncleaned since the last guest used it. The curry smell still lingers, so I can't use it.
I stayed here in 2014, then in 2015. Back then, it was called Guesthouse Bear Moriguchi, and there was a nice English-speaking Japanese manager who welcomed me, explained how the room works, how the on-premise coin laundry works, how often housekeeping would come by (every other day), and a fresh Yukata was left on my bed every two days for me to sleep in. It's clear now the place is run by somebody else. I regret booking the place from my last fond memory.
If you’re fine with renting a room for your stay by all means. Just don’t expect any kind of services.
