Setsugetsuka Hot Spring Resort Hotel is located right next to Gora Train Staion, where I found is perfectly located for those who like to travel by public transportation in Japan. There is an In-suite private open air bathtub in each Japanese/Western Style Room and for those who like more mountain views instead of the city view (actually just the train... More

This was a great hotel with very authentic rooms in the Japanese style, it is about 3 minutes walk from Hakone station. The hot springs were a real treat and really invigorating, there were also family springs set in the Hotel grounds where you could have some privacy as a family. A traditional Japanese meal was included which was a... More

Du to heightened volcanic activity, the level of tourism in hakone has diminished. We still decided to go and arrived in Gora around 1pm. As we went to the Hotel, their answer was a standard 3pm check in time. They also offered to upgrade our room if we paid more. It was obvious however that the hotel was near empty.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour. The hotel is right next to the Gora train station, approx. 2 minute walk and to the right-hand side. It is a traditional Japanese Ryokan. Staff were friendly and helpful when we arrived. We arrived a little early and were unable to check in at the time, but they... More

One would not expect to see a 'Ryokan' as two massive four storied buildings! Seemed out of place in the small village of Gora. However, the interior and the food is quite traditional. We paid massive five star prices, and though the room was large, we were disappointed to find that from our balcony, we looked down onto the service... More

I came here with my mother, aunt, and cousin, as my first onsen inn visit. The room is wonderful and tastefully decorated, and there are a wide variety of onsens, from very cold to very hot. There are many indoor as well as outdoor onsens, and there are 3 private onsens as well, which would be perfect for couples. Service... More

Hotel located just next to Gora which is one of the major transport exchange in Hakone. The services and quality of room / Ryokan / food all good so it's a very cost-effective choice for stay in Hakone, while compared to other expensive hotels in the area. Of course, the trains from Hakone Yumoto to Gora takes 40 minutes, if... More

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting the Hakone National Park. It was very misty and snowing when we arrived after a long journey from Hiroshima. Hopes of seeing Mt Fuji seemed slim. The hotel is very handy just across from the station. . Our room was lovely overlooking the Onsen in the gardens at the back of the hotel.... More

The location is fantastic, it's literally across the street from Gora station. The room was clean and well maintained. Dinner and breakfast were decent and presentable. This is a pretty large ryokan so onsen and dining area can get crowded. We had to wait on line for the private outdoor onsens. There are different colors yukata available, which is a... More
