This place was a great get away after 4 days in Tokyo. The service was impeccable and the baths were the best. We particularly enjoyed having a private bath which we used on and off the entire stay. The food on the other hand was only ok. For the price, I expected more but the true star of this place... More

This is certainly one way of experiencing authentic Japan. A nice welcome and lots of explanation - some in English and some in Japanese - from our charming 'maid'. We loved the (very) hot tub on our balcony; we were a bit less keen on sleeping on futons. We had a lovely view of the mountains. The dining experience was... More

I visited Gora Hanaougi with my sister. Possibly a mistake. I'd rate it very much a couples destination. The service is impeccable. The rooms immaculate. The private onsen was ace. They have the BEST toilets in Japan! The food was possibly a little inaccessible for me even though I am a pretty adventurous eater! So perhaps beware of this point.... More

It's a pity that we only had one night stay in Gora Hanaougi. It's a fantistic Ryokan in Hakone area. We managed to go to the hotel by ourselves, and then found out that actually the hotel can pick up the guest at Gora station. Even though, we did not have any problem of reaching it. After check-out, the receptionist... More

We chose Gora Hanaougi as we would like to have our private onsen. We are very pleased with our room which come with a great view and we can really enjoy our bath. With the light drizzle it is really peaceful and relaxing. The 13 course dinner took about 2 hours, it is very enjoyable and the server provide great... More

This ryokan is absolutely first class. We didn't have the most expensive room but it was wonderful. We had a view over the mountains and a balcony with our own hot tub, supplied by the onsens (hot springs) in the area. There is little English spoken here but the staff were delightful and made every effort to ensure that our... More

An absolutely beautiful hotel, with all the fantastic service that Japanese ryokans are famous for. The amenities are wonderful, the staff attentive, the food amazing. They accommodated vegetarian requests and still prepared excellent meals. The private onsen in your room that overlooks Hakone is just awesome. And on top of the beautiful hotel, with amazing food, scenic views, attentive staff,... More

From the moment you arrive you are in a cocoon. You are welcomed with drinks and sweets and then escorted to your room. The yukata robes that were provided were lovely although I wasn't so keen on the socks! But shuffling through the hotel which has tatami mats almost everywhere made me feel like I had stepped back in time.... More

Excellent service and beautiful location, peaceful , quiet and clean. The moment we arrived at Toza train station, we were requested to call hotel and they have a free pick up service. As lunch is not provided at hotel, we were told to have lunch then proceed for check-in. Within 10 minutes we were whisked away to a truly wonderful... More

We are family of 4 with 2 children. Everything was awesome. They pay attention to details and my 2 kids love it so much. Food is the best... The kids meal is just too much as they can hardly finish half of it. But food was great. Enjoy every moment there... Why only 4 star as we had a very... More
