The pros: This is a very nice traditional hotel with a lot of atmosphere. Large room, good bed, stable wifi, extremely friendly staff, good breakfast in the fantastic large dining room (do not take the buffet type breakfast). Lots of famous people stayed here: Albert Einstein, Queen Silvia of Sweden, John Lennon, Wolfgang Lynen - this place has lots of... More

As I'm sure you've read by now this is the oldest western hotel in Japan. That's kind of cool in itself. There is a genuine old world charm about the place with a real east-meets-west feel. The staff are wonderful as always in Japan. The cavernous rooms (even by western standards) are dates but clean. The beds however are like... More

This is undoubtedly one of the grand hotels of the world. The grounds, the public spaces and the architecture are all on a grand scale. We had a standard room which was probably three times the size of any other hotel room we have ever been in. The views, needless to say, were spectacular. The service was impeccable, the room...

We stayed two nights and are so glad we did. We were in the original part of the hotel. The room was spacious with a sitting area, bathroom tired but clean and had everything you needed. Bed really comfy. Staff were extremely helpful and had good english. We included breakfast in our booking and it was excellent. The hotel has... More

Nice view. Very dated rooms. Last updated in the '50s? I think we chose this based on a glowing recommendation from Frommers. Umm... Restaurant was ok, but expensive. And like the rooms, caught in a time warp. Think "continental" cuisine from the '70s.

If you want to stay somewhere in Hakone that isn't a ryokan but does have elegance the this is the place. Its slightly faded elegance is part of its charm. Yes, the bar has seen better days and could be more inviting, yes it would be good if they served some Japanese food in the main restaurant, but you don't... More

My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to one night's stay here for our honeymoon and we are so pleased we did. We weren't entirely sure what to expect, but were overwhelmed once we got here. Unfortunately it was bucketing down when we got to the station near the hotel, so it was a very wet 5 minute walk... More

Can't speak highly enough of this place. Its well located to allow guests to travel easily around Hakone - 5 minutes walk from the tram which takes you up the mountain as far as Owakudani (the highest point in the region). The hotel itself is absolutely stunning - it has a very colonial feel and the building itself looks spectacular... More

As long as you do your research, and know what to expect, you will undoubtedly enjoy your stay at the Fujiya. As you'll gather from other reviews, it's an old hotel - but that's the appeal of the place. The decor, atmosphere, rooms and service are all part of the charm. My wife and I are in our early 40s...

We were taken by Japanese friends to stay in a nearby ryokan. The staff there recommended we take tea at the Fujiya Hotel, before we left for Tokyo. The hotel boasts heads of state, Charlie Chaplin, Twiggy and John Lennon as former guests. And its small museum shows photographs of visits, plus other interesting facts about the hotel. It has...
