Review – New Rakuseki (ニュー楽石) in Toyooka, Hyogo

Posted on: August 8, 2011

Hi hi!!  It’s ○子!

Today’s review is about a hotel in Hyogo Prefecture called New Rakuseki.  If you go to Toyooka, there are two hotels called Rakuseki and they are across the street from each other.  There is the original Rakuseki and the New Rakuseki, which we went to.

From the start, we weren’t really all that happy with New Rakuseki.  This was the first time that I’ve seen a love hotel where we didn’t just go into the room.  Papa had to go to the front desk and get a key.  The people were behind a window so that no one could see each other’s face, but I think that was more creepy than anything!

After Papa got the key, he and Mama got everything out of the car and walked in.  But once we walked out of the garage and into the hotel, it was confusing!  There were no signs telling us where to go and Papa accidently walked into the staff room!  Ooops~~~  Privacy just keeps going down and down, doesn’t it?

The lies! Our room wasn't this cool!

When we got into the room, we thought it looked rather blah.  The website shows pretty cool rooms, and so does the catalogue inside of the room, but Mama said that it was nothing more than a Motel 6 with free porn and condoms.  I’ve never been to one, but I’ll take her word for it.

While Mama and Papa were settling down, I decided to take a look around for myself.  The room had your average service of some drink, but we also had a bag of snacks.  That was nice.  The fridge had some drinks, but nothing terribly interesting and no other food.  If we wanted food, we would have to order it.  The TV had video games and karaoke, but Papa liked that they had a slot machine game as well.  There wasn’t really anything special,  but then again, it didn’t look like there was enough room for anything cool.

The bed is big, but it's the whole room!

Mama says Papa isn't allowed in Vegas without a wallet babysitter


those snacks look good...









Not too impressed by the room, I decided to go look at what was important to me: the bathroom.  The shower was pretty big, but I heard Mama complaining later that the bath sponge they provided was way too rough for her to use.  The toilet had warmers and washers, but just your standard selection of options.  The bathtub was also an okay size, but after being at the Apollo before, I wasn’t too impressed.  It felt so normal.  But even those things wouldn’t have warranted a bad review.  Nothing special, but nothing to complain about.  That was, until Mama went to wash her face.



after 😦







Yup, the sink had a problem.  The faucet handle was broken.  Every time Mama or Papa used it, the handle came off!  Sheesh!  You would think they would fix at least that!  If they didn’t fix that, then I’m not too confident that they cleaned and sanitized the room properly, either 😦

Other than that, the night was uneventful and we all got some sleep.  When it was time to check out in the morning, we didn’t get to use a machine.  Papa had to go back to that strange window to pay for our stay.  I don’t think we’ll be coming back again.

So, let’s wrap this up!

Good – The snacks?  Really, nothing else really stuck out as good and definitely nothing was special.  Maybe if you REALLY like the slot games, then you would like that, but Mama said she’s been to a hotel where they have an actual slot MACHINE you can play.  That sounds a lot better.

Bad – A lot!  Not very private, no clear instructions on where the rooms are, cramped room, and a faucet that is broken.

Price – Here we go for overnight stays (second star down).  Weekdays allow you to stay from 11PM to 10AM and costs 6,000 yen.  Saturdays and special days (such as holidays or festival times) will cost you 8,000 yen.  Also, if you have more than two people in the room, each additional person will cost you 3,000 yen.  So, SHHHHH!  I wasn’t there!  If you stay later than check out, it’s 800 yen for every 30 minutes.
