Insure it, set fire to it and rebuild with the claim. £71 for a night. Front reception took 10 minutes to come from the back office. Hotel was once top notch and opulent, the Emperor of Japan stayed, HOWEVER no money has been spent or reinvested. Paper coming off the walls, damp, stains on carpets and sofas, dirty bathroom, the...

Horrible doesn't even begin to explain our dissatisfaction. Firstly the aircon in our Japanese room didn't work and the front desk staff didn't care or weren't interested. The room smelt of an old persons dresser (musty, old, smoky for those that haven't smelt an old persons dresser) which aggravated my wife's asthma and made her feel sick. The fridge also... More

From the outside driving up the driveway, you feel like you're coming to something majestic. But this ends as soon as you walk into reception. Inside has been neglected. Like something from a thriller movie. Think The Shining. From inside the room, it has a smell to it and we could hear people shouting in the hallways. Its expensive for... More

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
