Lovely setting on the edge of the lake. We specified a room looking towards Mount Fuji. visited in November so the hotel was quiet. Long corridors linked different parts of the hotel and it lacked some character. Public spa is available from 6am to 10pm. Served western and Japanese food with a shop for souvenirs. Only spent one night there... More

This is a beautiful hotel, just on the edge of the lake. Our room seemed a little dated, but the view and food more than made up for it. In any event, it was clean, tidy and had two double beds. The bathroom was lovely too. A really powerful shower as well as a bath. We had a great meal... More

Stayed here with 4 people in one room, which meant we were in the annex building with a gorgeous view of the lake as all larger rooms are located here. (I had read about people complaining about the view from the annex, overlooking run-down tennis courts – and they do seem to have been unused for some time, but really... More

The hotel is located right on lake Ashi with views of Mt.Fuji. However you can only see it on a clear day!!! The hotel is a nice walk to the small village that offers a variety of options of restaurants and museums and shrines. The hotel is right next to one of the cable cars that take you up the... More

Check in on silver week was a bit slow due to the volume of customers but the helpful concierge service took care of the luggage and prepared check in . Rooms are comfortable ( I could only get a smoking room looking on the mountain) and the mattress is very comfortable. Breakfast is of good standard. Try to get a... More

Originally got the annex part of the hotel, which I must say is almost like an entirely different hotel, than the main part. The annex seems isolated from the rest of the hotel and even divided by a fence. After not being satisfied with the view of an old unkept tennis court, we requested a room in one of the... More

We've stayed one night in a visit to Hakone. The hotel offer a free shuttle to/from Odawara that was great once we"d JR pass. We arrived at the hotel and the area is charming. We took the boat to different parts of the lake Ashi. In the afternoon we strolled the grounds and tried the onsem. We loved it!

I am only half jesting with the title of this review , though truly the service was excellent. One very kind and patient lady explained all the in house services as well as mapped out the surrounding areas & places we wished to visit. This huge hotel stands on prime property fronting Lake Ashi. Our room ( large with all... More

Stayed here for one night as part of a tour of Japan. It is nicely located but there is not a lot in the surrounding area. We arrived in a Japanese copy of a very old fashioned sailing ship which was on the interesting side of tacky! The hotel is nice and the food very good for an inclusive deal.
