We visited Lalaca while touring around Japan by rail which was such a wonderful adventure. Lalaca was a little oasis of calm and serenity for 2 nights before the train adventure began and I would recommend you stay a lot longer. To get here required a number of modes of transport and then a short walk but the hotel had... More

アクセス 駅からも近く、観光の拠点になります。 ただ、周りにはお店はないので、必要なものがあれば、先に用意するとよい。 部屋 小さく風呂なしの部屋だったが、全体的に新しく快適過ごせた。水回りもきれいです。窓からの眺めは最高。 温泉 硫黄の濁り温泉。アトピー肌でカサカサしていたのですが、赤みがなくなりしっとりしました。本当に最高。またいきたいと思わせる質でした。男女入れ替わりで、大浴場には内湯と外湯があります。 貸切露天は早いもの順なので、チェックインは早めにしたほうがよいかも。景色もよい。 食事 ボリュームもあり、地魚も楽しめました。お品書きがあるのは個人的にすごくうれしかった。 接客・サービス フロント不在が多いのが欠点でしょうか。人が入っても出迎えなしは少し気分がそがれます。が、明るくおしゃべりな仲居さんには好感でした。 今回の部屋は一階フロントの向かいだったので、居心地はよくなかった。事前に伝えてくれれば違う選択も考えたのですが…。 Good points, The most thing I must mention is the quality of onsen water. This salfur spring will be a good treatment for your skin too. Can enjoy good japanese styled dinner and breakfast. Easy to go anywhere around Hakone area by train or veicle. Accomodation charge...

Lalaca is one of those places which makes an impression the second you set foot through that front door. We spent two nights at Lalaca and managed to score both the traditional Japanese style room (2 adults and a toddler) as well as the Japanese-Western room (2 adults). Both styles of rooms are exceptional in their own regard; comfortable, well... More

We had spent at least one night in a half Japanese & Western style ryokan and it was fantastic! We had read the reviews here before visiting and I'm glad I did that. The location of the ryokan required 10mins walking distance from Gora or Koen-Shimo station (cable car). I'm truly impressed, this ryokan is well maintained, facilities are good... More

Not the usual ryokan--its a modern building with the trappings of a traditional ryokan. Service as expected--good. Onsen, small but nice. Two communal ones--both have outdoor pools. One is larger than the other but they alternate between male/female so if you plan to stay more than one day, you'll experience both. Did not use the private one since it booked... More

Read from TODAY that lalaca is one of the recommended hotel to stay at hakone and indeed we gave them a thumb up. The half board refers to Japanese dinner (have to check-in by 6.30pm latest cos dinner ends 8pm) since the whole course took min an hour, while breakfast there's option for western type (strictly 8am to 9am) are...

This was our first trip to Japan and our first time staying in a ryokan. I researched a number of different places and was very pleased with our choice. This was a splurge for us, but glad we went for it. We stayed in a Japanese style room with a great view. We loved the onsen and took advantage of... More

All the ingredients were so fresh and presented so beautifully and with so much pride.

My husband, two college-age children, and I stayed here for one night in late May--we wanted a traditional ryokan with an outdoor onsen. We chose room 301 because it was the largest room. There were two western-style beds and two Japanese futons--all were very comfortable. There are large windows and lots of light. The public onsens were very nice. Unfortunately,... More
