Former Glover House, Nagasaki

(260+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
Nestled in lush gardens, Former Glover House probably served as the inspiration for Puccini's "Madam Butterfly." Scottish merchant Thomas Blake Glover built the house in 1863, blending traditional Japanese architectural elements with Georgian-style exterior. Notice the structure's latticed arches, stone-floored verandas, French windows, and British chimneys mounted on a Japanese roof covered with demon-headed tiles. In the park, look for the statues of Puccini and Miura Tamaki, who played Madam Butterfly.

  • European four star boutique hotel style. In the cosy Salon rooms are small but cozy. Very convenient location and the staff hard, feels good. Concierge features are just sloppy with caution. And no electrical outlets can charge Smartphone in your room. It may be there wedding and parking in the city than tourists from outside guests from Kyushu in the main target. If you stick out and even then it was a very nice hotel.

Bathrooms are very spacious and stylish, bordering on your room wall in the shuttered was the sounds and smells are unqualified (laughs). Picked opponent go together though ~
