We stayed one night in the Japanese room, with grilled Kobe beef dinner served private room in restaurant, buffet breakfast. The hotel is very close to the bus-stop where buses from Kobe Sannomiya stop. We could have called the hotel to pick us up but we took a short 5 mins walk from the bus-stop. The hotel is very well...

We were loyal customers of this hotel for about ten years. Whenever we visited Osaka, we would squeeze time to stay in this hotel to enjoy the meals and onsen there. There were three separate onsen venues within the hotel and we tried to manage trying each one of these onsen at least once during our stay. The room was... More

My third visit to the same hotel in Arima. It was still as good as before. Clean facilities, wonderful hot springs, friendly staff and most of all, amazingly good food! Reasonably priced. Looking forward to returning for 1 or maybe 2 nights!

Generally, people in Japan are polite, but the staff here were super attentive. I stayed with my mother and grandparents and they were accommodating when my grandmother wanted to retire early. The hotel provides everything you would need- toothbrush, combs, a yukata to wear around the hotel, towels/soap/shampoo/etc in the onsen, so that though we brought our personal toiletries, we...
