Stayed at this hotel through the arrangement of our travel agent. Staff service wise, staff are very professional and accommodating. We were supposed to have our prearranged dinner at 7pm but we only managed to reach the hotel around 7.30pm and the staff ran out to help us with the luggages and parked the car for us while we made...

Stayed here for one night as part of tour package. This is a huge hotel with 3 different onsens located in different parts of the buildings. The room we stayed in was tatami style. Had to be careful getting in and out of toilet as the ledge was higher than usual. Yukatas - one piece Japanese garment which you can... More

This hotel is really large and the tatami room we stayed in was huge. It was nice and warm with a view of white snow covering the mountains. We enjoyed our buffet lunch and dinner where the spread was Japanese food which was extremely delicious. Wifi was available only at the lobby and there were comfortable lounge chairs for us... More

Rare are hotels that truly bans smoking but this one is for real and commendations to Hotel Taisetsu for imposing smoking ban throughout the hotel (smokers use a smoking cabin like in modern airports). Consequently, there was no lingering sickly tobacco smell in our hotel room and air conditioning system. For travellers in Japan who do not wish to endure... More

It was a great experience staying at the traditional onsen place especially after a day at Sounkyo during the mid Sep. There are 3 different baths whereby one can enjoy a quiet time there. However on the day we went it was raining so we didnt get to experience the outdoor bath. The buffet food was average with a large... More

We checked into Hotel Taisetsu Sounkyo on the 7th August for 1 night. Our tatami room faced the Daisetsuzan Ranges. The room furniture were a bit worn out and the cushion seats definitely required replacement. The toilet bowl, wash basin and bath tub were all squeezed side by side in 1 small little room. Standard face and hair wash, together... More

During my trip, I stayed at more than 10 hotel with onzen/bath house. Taisetsu hotel is the worst. The food buffet did not reach the standard. We barely eat dinner and breakfast because we could not believe the food is this bad (cold and nowhere near 'good taste'). The room was typical, nothing special but located far away from the... More

After an extremely cold day of traveling by bus in -17C degree weather, what a pleasure it was to get to Hotel Taisetsu. A very large but comfortable hotel with a very nice onsen bath. I especially liked the rotemburo(open air hot spring) at night where you look out into the snow. The cold air was nice against my face... More

Came across this lovely onsen hotel while driving through Sōunkyō, and decided to check if a room was available. While ordinary looking outside, it was a pleasant find indeed. We stayed in a newly-renovated room on the fifth floor - it was spacious, clean, and comfortable. There were some tidbits provided too. For 26,000 yen for 2 person, it comprised... More
