As almost all hotels we met in Japan were clean and with good service, this hotel must be recognised for the air of peace of mind from the entrance. Nice onsen and despite full hotel everything quiet. Good location from the cable car - 200 meters. Pricey but next time in Hakone I would choose it!

The beds were the most comfortable we had in Japan, which still means they were firm. The bathroom was spacious and we had a large, quiet room. We chose one with western beds and Japanese furniture (no chairs!) We had the Japanese breakfast which had many options, none Western, but we found plenty to satisfy us. We did need to... More

Stayed there with my wife and my small daughter. The whole interior is very stylish - modern Japanese. Everything is very clean and well maintained. It also has a small, but very nice onsen. Breakfast was good, but not too much choice. The area itself is somewhat quiet. That's nice for relaxing. For me, however it was too quiet. Probably... More

A nice hotel, great view, very clean and tidy, very quiet atmosphere. There is a joint onsen in the facility, and we also had one in our room, with view to the mountains - it was not large but enough for 2 people, with nice view to the mountains. One of the few places that allowed us to stay 4... More

This hotel was our favourite on our whole trip! We arrived in the pouring rain after the long train ride and were soaking wet so the private onsen (hot tub) in our room was amazing! Staff was friendly, and breakfast was nice but it was traditional Japanese incase some people do not like that. It is a perfect cross between... More

*Important* Take the cable train from the bottom (Gora) to the 3rd stop (Nakagora) and get off at the *right-hand* side.

Liked- Very clean (remove shoes before entering hotel) Big rooms Interior of hotel and rooms are very pretty (see... More

This was a lovely little hotel in Hakone and would thoroughly recommend. Pros - in room hot tubs! Volcanic waters straight to your bedside. Was so great to wake up in the morning and step into hot spa waters first thing (the pools are constantly filled, i.e. Always hot and full), chill for a few mins and then shower and... More

Transportation took quite a long time.. When you arrived at the hakone main station, go to platform #3 for hakone tozan train - drop off at gora station. Then take Hakone tozan cable car and get off at nakagora station. (** remember to get off from the right side from the cablecar). 5-10mins walk from station to the hotel. Very... More

Having experienced more traditional ryokans in Japan, this hotel in Hakone really lived up to our expectations. The facade may seem a little dated but the interiors are better than expected. We always expected the rooms in Japan to be smaller than average so we booked two family rooms which could've accommodated 8 adults but there were only four of... More
