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

We went there on the 14th February, we love the atmosphere of hotel, and enjoy a private outdoor hot spring both inside room and public area.

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

50-100m from Gora station. Clean rooms, comfy futon beds, tatami floor, friendly staff. Had a great time here! Loved the balcony wooden tub. Has a separate toilet to the bathroom. Great dining experience with very tradition japanese food, wagyu hot pot and fugu (blowfish) hot pot for dinner, breakfast was grilled fish, rice and other interesting bits and pieces. There's...

Room is tidy and there is a private wooden hot spring tub at the balcony. Food is good. Very close to the train station. The price is reasonable. Thing to criticise is that there is only lan but no wifi at room.

Cannot recommend this place enough. Admittedly we had never been to a ryokan before, so our standards might not have been that high. Having done some research Setsugesuka seemed to be priced mid range so we took a chance as it still seemed a lot to pay. Ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. Room was spacious... More
