I went there with my wife for by birthday and we were actually ran into the biggest snow storm in Tokyo for years. We were actually stuck in the train station when everything was getting closed, and this couple standing next to us was getting back to Tokyo since the hotel they reserved did not want to come to pick...

Manatee Hakone is a nice hotel, which is nestled nicely in the mountainbike, Way away from everything. We were picked up at the trainstation and the english speaking receptionist guides us through the entire stay. The suite was perfect, the private in-suite onsen was amazing. So were the private sparooms aswell. The food was impressive, allthough some of the courses... More

Stayed there for two nights. Researched many places and finally picked this one. It is in mid of nowhere in the mountain, very close to Gora park. The hotel staff will pick you up from nearby train station after you called hotel. The hotel staff were extremely helpful. They may not speak English well but they don understand your needs,...

This hotel is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed in . The staff are fantastic and speak good English . We felt like part of the family. The journey to Hakone was further than we anticipated however it did add to the enjoyment of our adventure. From Tokyo station we travelled to Odawara. We then caught the... More

We took the bus from Hakone-Yumoto which stops almost outside the hotel. At reception we were greeted with tea and shown to our room which had been upgraded to one with a private onsen. The very helpful reception staff showed us on maps exactly where to visit and how to reach all these places. We were taken to the station... More

My boyfriend and I booked a suite and it was worth every dollar. The view we had was amazing, especially during the sunset. The hotspring tub in our room was great as well, especially for people like us, who can't take extremely hot temperatures. The water very very warm but not scalding. The staff were extremely polite and helpful, sending... More

The suite room took my breath away! Great view of the mountains from private open air hot tub. The hospitality was incredible. Felt like a king staying here. Totally relaxed and unwind throughout my 3D2N. Staff were very helpful and friendly. I will return again! Recommended for those who just wish to relax and let nature overwhelm you.

As most things in life, the pictures always looked better than the actual things. We stayed at their Corner Suit with an in-room hot spring tub, which I believed it's their most expensive room. The bed are very comfortable, the view is great. But our in-room hot spring tub is a big disappointment to us, it looked like had not... More

Our stay at the Hakone Hotel Manatei exceeded our expectations! The staff went above and beyond in making this a memorable stay at their hotel. Although the hotel is walking distance from the Kowakidani station, I'd suggest you take a taxi when you first arrive so you learn the exact location of the hotel. It will cost you around 750...

Was a little confusing at first trying to find how to get to the place but we managed (due to switching around trains coming from Tokyo). Finally we got to the place after finding some taxis waiting outside the station and it was worth it! I dont recommend walking, its a long hill walk up hill. The girlfriend and I... More
