This hotel looks beautiful from the outside but is dated and old inside, no atmosphere. And overpriced for what you get. The location is not bad, but if you are catching the bullet train here book somewhere closer to the station- as it took over an hour to get here and had to catch a bus.

The hotel is very nice from outside and is set in a very convenient location, directly on the lake, at walking distance from many attractions. My room, Japanese style, was very big and flooded with light, lake view. Restaurant and onsen are in the hotel but I didn't try them. Wifi signal is very weak, normally doesn't work. The hotel...

The hotel looks very nice from the outside, but was disappointing when we came in. It is very old, and needs serious restoration work. The rooms are big, but weren't very clean. The wi-fi is only available in the lobby. The location is not bad, facing the Kawaguchicko lake, but unfortunately, the area of Mt. Fuji's five lakes doesn't seem... More

The only good thing of this hotel is that you can see the Mt.Fuji from the top-floor onsen. But for overall for this hotel, everything is old. I think they need urgent renovation. The cleanliness is an issue from the old building, bedroom, furniture, and common area like bath and onsen. I also smell the gas at the lobby in... More

The location is not bad. You can reach there from train station by walk or Taxi. The hotel is clean. Staffs are friendly and kindness. I choose Japanese style room and the room is very big, if you compare the room in city. There are completely facilities in room. In the hotel, 4th floor, there is on-sen, so you can... More

From the station it’s a 15 min walk, first impression was little hotel in the mountains. Once we were inside, the hotel is old, smelly, stuffy carpets, cracks everywhere, not maintained! The room we booked was large, traditional tatami room with large windows overlooking the lake (only positive thing). The famous baths with view on the Mount Fuji-san are old,... More

I was not impressed at all with this hotel. The rooms were run down with stains all over the carpets , walls, and chair covers. They also used kerosene heaters which made the whole entire hotel smell like gas. The breakfast was 1500yen ($15) which consisted of one egg, one small piece of sausage, a store bought yogurt, a small... More
