This is a Japanese style accomodation with onsen (public bath). The rooms are spacious and wel equipped. During the day the table takes the center of the room, and for the night they push it to the side to extend the futon. The bathroom doesn't have a shower, but it has the fancy Japanese style toilet and more toiletries than... More

I’d like to recommend you this excellent “Onsen Ryokan-Hotel Tenseien”, where we were hosted in November 2013, during our 2 weeks circuit trip in Japan on the “Tokaido Route”, booked with “Vivre le Japon” agency (located in Paris, France). We began by leaving our shoes at the hotel entrance, in a safe box. During our check-in, everyone received his kimono,... More

This hotel is absolutely perfect for people who are either new or seasoned onsen goers. The location is lovely. I was surprised at how nice the back of the hotel was, with the two waterfalls, little shrine, and ponds with ducks. Walking around here at night was the perfect way to cap off our onsen bath. The onsens are on... More

This hotel is really really nice. We had to take off out shoes as soon as we got in which i liked because the floors were so clean! My white socks didn't have one speck of dust on it. That in itself was amazing. The views the hotel had in its backyard was also unexpected. Two waterfalls and a small... More

We booked for one night at Tenseien, and was just expecting a very average stay. However, after arriving here, we realised it is a very peaceful and extremely well serviced. As an non-Japanese speaker, they provide very good information in English to the rules and traditions in the accommodation. Definitely agree with some earlier comments here, yes, it is advisable...

This was my first experience with the more traditional side of Japanese Inns. Although the hotel is large, the service provided makes you feel welcome. As a westerner, dressing for meals (Yukata) is a fun way to fit in. I opted for a basic western style room which was comfortable and well appointed. Meals are served buffet style. The food... More

The tenseien hotel is huge in size but they have the ability to make the hotel feel quite small. Our room was fine, the wifi was fast, room was spotless and it was quite spacious so for the price was more than enough. We opted not to go for the breakfast and dinner options as we usually enjoy finding local... More

As titled specified - don't try pulling your luggage all the way (UP) from the train station - you will likely regret it Instead wait for the "Orange Bus A" - opposite the station (down the lift - not the escalator) I think bus is Y100 per person per trip Walking without luggage will be okay, about 15mins stroll Room...

This was the second hotel of our Ruby Wedding Anniversary trip. After the modern buzz of Nagoya we went into the Hakone National Park to the lovely spa hotel Tenseien. The hotel is on a river and has a beautiful garden with two waterfalls and a shrine. Our room looked over this garden and was enormous. It had twin beds... More

This place is definitely worth your money. Deeply peaceful interior, waterfall view and clear fish pond outside, hotel guests walking around in evening yukatas, and an excellent outdoor onsen. For an extra JPY 2,000 you have an option of a private Onsen/family bath room. Frontdesk can speak english thankfully. The only downside is the hotel restaurant is only available from... More
