What are the rooms like?
The rooms at this hotel are a step up from a business hotel in terms of design and comfort. We liked that there was a decent-sized desk, which is great for remote workers and business travelers. However, the rooms are on the small side, and some of them have unusual furniture layouts.
How big are the rooms?
The rooms are definitely small, but in a way that’s typical of most Japanese hotels. You have some space to move around, but if you’re sharing the room or have large suitcases, things can get cramped.
Are the rooms comfortable?
At the Royal Park Canvas Nagoya the rooms are relatively comfortable. The mattresses are a little firm, but there are two types of pillow to choose from. However, the bedside clock does give off a strong glow and can’t be turned off, so if that bothers you, you might want to give this hotel a skip — or bring something to cover it with.
What’s the view like?
Unfortunately, there are no views to speak of. If you take a peek out your window, all you’ll see is other buildings.
