The thing that made this stay so memorable is their high quality service & facilities. Our room and the outdoor onsen have spectacular view. After the onsen, there are complimentary use of massage chairs & drinks. The room is clean and huge. I really enjoyed the dinner in tatami room and the waitress was very polite. She explained the dishes... More

Whenever I think of a place to really relax with great onsen, great service and amazing food, I still think of this place!! Maybe it was because I went when I was very stressed or it was the first time that I had gone to an onsen hotel. The experience totally swept me away, and each time I go to... More

The pools were extremely good with an amazing view, the sushi and the other foods of our dinner which we had in our room was VERY delicious. Waiters were all very kind and smiling. The only thing I can complain about was the breakfast! There was not enough food for foreigners😊 I'd love to see something additional for my next... More

Even though the weather was still warm, I was disappointed that the swimming pool was already closed for the season. Because their "naked" policy, I did not use the hot spring spa, but my tour guide encouraged us to tour the spa and hot spring pool. The spa looked fancy. Breakfast buffet was good. No complaint for bed sheets or... More

Visited this hotel around 10 years ago ... was an EXCELLENT hotel with EXCELLENT food and service at that time !! Visited again this year. The physical condition of the hotel was kept quite well ... only that both the food and service quality had lost some of its luster (especially the Kaiseki style dinner) !! ... but yet, comparatively,...

returned to Arima onsen since 2004. This time we picked this onsen hotel and it was a right choice. Good location - the premise is up on a small hill and thus have a good panoramic view of the whole Arima onsen area. It has a huge garden with blossoming sakura when we visited. Good open air onsen ! Good... More

Bus from Osaka drops you in a lovely little village which is well worth exploring. The Hotel has a shuttle to take you the 5 minutes up the hill. We booked a private bath/onsen. We had a wonderful afternoon. The onsen bath was very relaxing and comfortable. The staff in the hotel very helpful and friendly. We also booked for... More

Every time I've been there, the well-educated staff helped us with superb hospitality. And the another best point is that there are many kinds of bath tubs with wonderful mountain scenery. One of the best hotels in Arima Hot Spring area. 何回か行ったことがありますが、いつ行っても女中さんやホテル長さんなどのスタッフさんたちが暖かくもてなしてくれます。 それなりの人数で個室座敷の晩御飯を頼むことが多いのですが、いつも要望に合わせて細かく対応してくださります。 お風呂もいろいろあって広々していて、景色もいいです。 プールも十分な広さがあって子連れだと楽しめます。 もう少し卓球台とかあればさらに若者にも嬉しいかな。
