We stayed there for 3 nights. It is a very popular hotel as it is just right opposite to the onsen park Yunessan. The hotel does offer packages that come with the onsen park tickets. Pros - great staff, clean rooms and common areas, nice big garden, my room is right above the common seating area and the view was... More

Hotel is located in the middle of nowhere. no places of interest within walking distance. But hotel balcony is amazing with a beautiful garden view. Rooms are too cramped. Maybe because the main attraction is just to do warm baths

Professional hotel in the middle of Hakone. The location is perfect to take a tour around area. We loved the bath, the rooms and the hotel itself. The only downside, that the restaurants closed down pretty early.

We selected this hotel because it is very close to Yunessen (actually owned by them). We were quite happy with the overall service and location it. There is a big garden at the back of the hotel and we went for a walk. It is not very expensive.

During our stay we visited the Yunessan where my kids enjoyed themselves very much. The breakfast was OK, the dinner was not so bad but some meat was tough. But still all of us found something which we liked very much. The Onsen was rather far away from our room but it was very nice.

This hotel can boast of its good location, especially its proximity to the Yunessun Hot Spring Resort. However, it will be better if they do a major renovation of their rooms, as they are quite outdated.
