It's a western-style hotel with its own baths. I had one where there was an open-air bath in my own room and it was nice. The room was nicely designed, with a tatami area and western styled beds. The standout however, to me, was the restaurant. The service as great, and the food -- a fusion of Japanese and French... More

We stayed here for two nights. This is a nice blend of Japanese and Western style. The place is very clean, staff were very helpful and courteous (dont speak much English but we could get by!). Our room was quite spacious - had beds but then also a tatami area together with a pssibility for two futons. Very comfortable. We... More

The hotel is good looking and the location is nice. We had a room for 4 people with a private bath on the balcony. All nice and clean as was the public onsen. The male onsen only had a small wooden tub outside, and a pool on the inside. While its obvious large parts of the place had been renovated... More

Stayed here 2 nights! This is a very traditional Onsen hotel or public hot spring bath hotel. Challenging to get here- information booth at train station has a very non English lady in attendance- so ended up in a wrong hotel- thankfully taxi driver did get us there!! No shoes worn anywhere in this hotel- there are lockers for shoes!... More

Although we thought it was very expensive when we booked, we were so satisfied with our stay after 2 days. Getting to the hotel was easy from Gora on the ropeway, but be aware you must disembark on the right side of the train to reach the hotel! It is a short 5 minute walk from Nakagora stop. The staff...

The trip to get to la foret is great fun, using the narrow gauge railway and funicular. Just a short level walk from Naka gora stop. A beautiful, well maintained hotel, a comfortable mix of Japanese and western style. Most enjoyable to walk round in yukata and tabi socks and the indoor and outdoor onsens are clean and inviting, especially... More

Hotel is very clean, room is equipped with good amenities and staff is very attentive to provide service despite their English is rather limited. One disappointment was that they said they would fetch us from Gora station but when we called, they told us to find a taxi ourselves. Breakfast is very Japanese but the quality is good.

Don't get me wrong, I love our stay here but the reception managers were so friendly and helpful that they were the first to come into mind. To start, what I like: - huge room: literally can roll on the tatami floor freely. Huge and comfortable beds. Nice toilet area. - nice public bath (お湯) - they even have a... More

Perfect room, quality toiletries, private Onsen (is the water suppose to be cloudy? because the pool from in public onsen at basement is crystal clear), my family loves the private onsen, kids were very excited having fun in the hot onsen while enjoying cold refreshing air from the balcony with the view of the magnificent mountain.

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!
