Located an approximate two-minute walk from the Hijiribashi exit of Ochanomizu Station (JR Chuo Line and Sobu Line), Hotel Juraku may seem a little drab when merely judging from its external appearance, however – thanks to an interior refurbishment – the rooms here are in fact relatively stylish. In addition to offering a range of services (including free internet access) and items such as slippers and mineral water, the hotel also houses a restaurant, named Akebinomi, that takes pride in serving guests with a range of healthy wholesome foods and offers a buffet-style breakfast menu that includes both a range of Japanese-style breakfast side dishes (made using farm-fresh produce), various western-style breakfast options, fresh juice and fruit. The staff are friendly and ready to serve.
