The hotel is perfect. Clean and comfortable and very close to the train station (shutter service can be arranged anyway). The Kaiseki dinner was impressive. The buffet breakfast was also lovely. I only tried the two out of three onsen. They were very nice. Communication is not a problem. They have English and Chinesr speaking front desk. Definitely I will... More

I traveled to Arima onsen in Kobe and stayed at this hotel with group of friends and family. Try out Japanese on-sen and ryokan (Traditional Japanese inn). Hotel is a mix of modern and traditional Japanese way. Room is very spacious and this was first impression. View from the room is spectacular, looking down hill and surrounding by mountains.

Stayed 1 night with the family at this wonderful onsen ryokan. Room was on 14th floor on the west wing and it is wonderful. The west wing has newer rooms and certainly are the ones to go for as it also are high floor rooms which offers a great view of the entire area. Chosen the buffet food option and... More

This hotel is located in a mountainous area, the resort is huge and well-equipped. What I strongly recommend is buffet at Hana (restaurant)! It cost ¥7800 yen including a dish of Kobe beef, tempura, soup, appetizers, chocolate fountain etc. and it's very satisfactory! You'll be able to try different tradition Japanese food.

With the size of the room plus the onsen and services, all my friends agree the price we are paying is better than any 5 stars hotels suite in other countries we had visited. I down one star due to morning breakfast, if it can have better option like Ramen, Curry Rice, etc.

This is a traditional hot spring resort and location is near the entrance of Arima Onsen. There have a trainer from Germany hence do not worry about the communication in English. Staffs are nice,helpful and handle issue flexibilty. Facilities and food are goods. The view of room is great when you enjoy the outdoor private bath in room.
