My family stayed at Sawa Hotel for three nights in Dec 2014. The hotel was a 12-min leisurely walk from Kawaguchiko Train Station. The rooms are cosy and comfortable. The staff were friendly and approachable. The breakfast set was very wholesome, energizing and awesome to start the day with. The hotel was close to a variety of good eateries and... More

The hotel is really old and the location is really out of nowhere. It was difficult for us to look for food too. The bed was really uncomfortable and they had some pornographic brochures in the drawer. There was no wifi in the hotel except for the lobby and restaurant area. The positive side was the hotel was clean despite... More

If you walk from the Kawaguchiko station, it take you around 15 mins. But the hotel has a pick-up service (if you arrive station after 3 p.m., you can call them to get you at the station). The staffs were very helpful and polite. Even the hotel is located a bit far from station but you can find big supermarket... More

The worst thing about this hotel is its location - it is at least a 15 minutes walk from the town centre (their website says 10 minutes but that must be for a fast walker!). However, if you go into the Tourist Information Centre next to the railway station, which is where buses also arrive, they will call the hotel... More

15 minutes walk from the Kawaguchiko train station. However they provide transport pick up but must inform them upon arrival. Next to the hotel there is a pharmacy that sells almost everything. Wifi can only be accessed at lobby area. There is a shopping mall nearby that has a comfy viewing area of FUJI-San on the first floor.

This hotel is a great choice, you cannot be mistaken. Rooms are basic but clean (and include a small cooking board) and comfortable. It is located just 15 minutes walk from the train station. The hotel does not offer luxury amenities or specific services, but its value for money is just perfect. Wifi in the lobby, not in the rooms.... More

I stayed there for 3 nights to visit Mount Fuji area and its 5 lakes. Hotel located close to Fujigawaguchicko lake (5 min walk). Rooms are practical, clean but basic. Breakfast is ok. Employees are kind and very helpful incl. free shuttle to railway station.

Disregard all negative comments about this hotel. Sure its not a 6star resort but you have to compare apples with apples. This has to be cheapest place for miles around. It is very clean. The staff are extremely polite and courteous. Its safe and handy to Mt Fuji. Oh its 100 times better than any accommodation I had in UK

The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the train station. There was wifi in the lobby, but not in the rooms. There was a microwave off the elevator lobby for use by guests. The room was large, with good AC and a balcony that had a laundry drying pole and brackets. The room had a queen bed with... More

The hotel has a good location for climbing MT Fuji. Other than that I disagree with other travelers regarding price and value. The standard is back to the 60`s, hard beds and you have no wifi in the rooms, pricewize; the area is costly because it is nearby the mountain. On the positive side; the rooms are big, the staff...
