We stayed at the Hotel Sawa for 3 nights on a recent trip to Japan. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a well priced, comfortable hotel. The rooms was large (for Japan) and we had a great view of My Fuji from our balcony. There is a laundry on the second floor... More

Hotel is very dated but it is nice and clean. Rooms were considered quite sizeable in Japan's standards. Very friendly English speaking staff. Complimentary shuttle service to train station in the morning.

I was confused about the sawa hotel location. It was located not too far from Kawaguchiko station. The staff were nice even their english were not good. It valued for money and all toilettaries were useful.

Used this hotel for 1 night prior to our ryokan stay. The hotel is showing its age. Rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. Staff were always polite and helpful. Located a distance from the train station, although the hotel provided complimentary transfers.

We stayed here for 2 nights in a double-room using this as our home-base for visiting Fuji-Q highland over 2 adrenalin filled days (a comfortable 20 minute walk through the local town) and then starting our Mt Fuji climb (Mt Fuji 5th station buses depart from Kawaguchiko train station) on the 3rd! The hotel can be accessed by foot in... More

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.
