The hotel only has 20 more rooms. Knowing that the hotel is popular among tourists, we made a reservation through e-mail 4 months before our visit. You can contact them through their webpage, and they will give you a quick reply.

This hotel is very near to the JR station (just a mere few minutes walk), so near to town center, tourist information center, town center, yet very quiet, ideal for those of us who dislike noise.

Unlike other big cities in Japan, Biei is a quiet town without exciting night lives. But the town is still adorable where you can enjoy fresh air and have relaxing time. There are only a few choices of hotels/hostels in Biei and we chose Lavenir because of its location. It only took you one minute or two to walk from... More

Location is good, although the staffs can't speak well in English but at least they are able to goggle on net to translate our enquiries. But the breakfast is very basic. The hotel has an interesting rule, it close it's main gate at 11pm. So you must inform the staff if you are coming back late. All the restaurants and... More

It's quiet at night after 7.30pm. It seems that most restaurants around the hotel close at 8pm and last order at 7.30pm. Almost could'n't get any dinner on 2nd... More

Reservation: I directly wrote to the hotel and was replied quickly in clear English. A few days before my arrival, they wrote to me again asking for my re-confirmation. The whole process didn't require any credit card info and is based on trust only. This is the common practice only in Japan which reflects the purity, sincerity and honour of... More
