Hotel is clean and tidy. The hotel staff are wonderful. But the room is really small and no window. Better to book Deluxe room because the size is a little bit bigger. Small hotel but the price is not cheap. Breakfast area is too small so it is not good place for breakfast. To be honest, I think Dogo area... More

I stayed here for a few nights for a conference. To begin with I was put in a smoking room. I have bad asthma, so after about 10 minutes I went to ask to switch rooms. Reception doesn't speak much English (and I speak even less Japanese!) however they were very accommodating with trying to understand, and I was moved... More

I guess it's a bit strange to review a hotel you didn't stay in, but I want to explain. When we were shown to our rooms at this very stylish hotel, we were surprised to discover the rooms are largely Japanese style, although there were Western-style beds. This didn't work for us. The staff was wonderful, and immediately worked on... More

I happened to stay this hotel for a business trip. It's not a long way from a famous Dougo Onsen Main Bath Building. I reckon service provided from hotel is average but breakfast buffet is very nice. Many veggies from local farmers. However, room size of hotel is deadly small. I felt that 90% of room is a bed. When... More

Its a classy boutique hotel sited very near the Dogo Onsen and shopping arcade. Parking is ample and had no problems getting a space whenever I got back to the hotel. Roads are a little tight though but nothing unmanageable. Our family room sleeps 4 comfortably. 2 western style beds (really comfortable) and 2 japanese style-futons. Room not big but... More

This hotel has no windows. Other than small ventilation windows at the high end of the walls in the bathroom and toilet, there is nothing else. Despite that it manages to be very cosy and homely. From keeping your shoes at the lockers the moment you stepped out of your floor lift lobby, to the small but somewhat calming tradition... More

The hotel has an interesting name, Dogo Yaya. Ya in Japanese means house or room. It is a hotel full of surprise. The hotel is located about 5 minutes walk from Dogo onsen honkan (main house, a public bath). The hotel has its own parking space. I dropped my luggage with the hotel and went out at 2:00pm. Rooms not... More

Dogo Yaya is in a good location very close to Dogo onsen & the covered shopping streets. If you want to bathe the more local bathhouse is just a few minutes from the hotel, we didn´t try it but i hear it has the same quality of water as famous Dogo bathhouse. Hotel is very nice boutique hotel, the semi-double/single... More

When I did my research on this site for this hotel, I was surprised that this business hotel could beat other classic ryokans and topped the list of hotels / ryokans in Matsuyama. Hence I decided to check it out myself. Believe this is the only business hotel within the Dogo Onsen area where everything is within walking distance. Hotel... More

I like this modern Japanese hotel because of its design, bed, rain shower, attentive services, branded amenities, breakfast (especially the DIY OJ machine) etc. If you are not looking for a traditional hotel with Onsen and can deal with staff who may not fully speak and understand English, try this and you won't be disappointed.
