Great for guests itching to get out and explore. For those after the full comforts of home and more besides, Saitama in Japan is host to dozens of excellent hotels offering a full hospitality service to put visitors completely at ease during their trip to the championships.
Finding top hotels in Saitama is fortunately not difficult, as Japan has a tradition of elegant hospitality that makes all stays a pleasure. The nearest hotel to the Super Arena is The Mark Grand Hotel, which is handily located within walking distance from the venue.
