I chose this hotel based on the reviews for a taste of Japanese lifestyle and the outdoor onsen. Was not disappointed. Friendly staff. Gentleman at Reception desk English fine but morning team English not good. So if you need directions etc that is going to require a higher level of English ask when you check in. The lady who explained... More

I travelled with my family just this December 2014 and after reading all of the great reviews here on Tripadvisor I was really looking forward to staying at Hotel Senkei. I stayed at the Hotel senkei Plaza Inn for 1 night and boy was I glad it was just 1 night. For starters, there was absolutely NO elevator and we... More

unless you don't want to speak in English with the staff, this is one of the best place I've been. We are not talking about a fancy and posh hotel because in fact the whole facility looks a bit old but the experience really worth the cost (quite high in August). I've read about the possibility to have also a... More

The room we were in was very old and worn. The bathroom was tiny and did not look clean. Nothing was explained to us about the onsen. I'm sure there are other places to stay. Staying in this hotel ruined our experience in hakone, as we were only here for one night.

Location was absolutely ideal,it's near the main street w/ restos and stores all around yet it wasnt noisy, in fact a very relaxing atmosphere! Infront the hotel was a very calm and scenic river and a little walk would take every tourist by surprise in a beauteous waterfall and a shrine. At night you could just walk around with your...

Hotel Senkei would not allow me to book a single room, so I had to book a double and pay for two people/food for two people. They were concerned when I arrived and was one person, because they prepared food for two. My room had an okay view - there was a cherry blossom tree outside my window. The rooms/suite... More

Good standard hotel which is a short stroll from the train station and Main Street in town. Staff were helpful and friendly. The outdoors rooftop onsen was wonderful, and well worth trying. Room was reasonable size and bathroom had basic amenities.

We stayed on a Saturday night at Senkei Plaza Inn. The location was ok, easy to access from the main station. Can walk or take shuttle bus. We booked twin/tatami room, which has row twin-sized beds and tatami room which can accommodate two more people. We paid US$ 250 plus for the room (no breakfast or dinner). The place was... More

Hotel Senkei is not worth the price. The onsen was fine, but very basic. The room was spacious, but very very worn out. There were obvious marks and dents on the walls. The website is very misleading, and makes it look much nicer than it is in reality. The staff was not helpful. After we checked in, they dropped as... More
