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。

We went to Osaka this summer. After our visit to Osaka, we took the Hankyu Express Bus from Osaka to Arima. It took less than an hour and it was pretty convenient. We got off the bus and called the Ariam Grand Hotel (my wife speaks some Japanese) shuttle bus and in less than 5 minutes the hotel shuttle bus... More

Greeted with ladies in Kimono on arrival, we were impressed by their strength and polite manner. The first team helped us with all our luggage. The first team approached us when we entered the room, suggesting about the functions of each room, how to wear Yukata dress and esp. making us Japanese tea as a welcome drink. At dinner, the...

Very well managed, established onsen hotel. We made a day trip, arriving at lunch time and bought their weekday day use coupon for 3650 yen, which entitles you to use the baths at B2 floor, and consume 2000 yen worth of food. If food cost > 2000 yen, you pay the difference. It's quite a deal. We ate at their... More

This is quite a large hotel, so not your traditional family-run, small ryokans. However the quality of service doesn't suffer because of size, while also having the benefits of a large resort hotel. There are a large number of wheelchairs available, a varied selection of restaurants and eateries onsite, some shops, spa and massage treatment rooms, a swimming pool, free... More

The property is very well maintained, has no sign of aging and spotlessly clean. Service is excellent. Food is good. We have a wonderful Japanese-western room on the ground floor with a semi-private garden, two sitting areas, a room with twin beds, separate areas for bath, dressing table, coffe bar etc. Will definitely stay here if I come to Arima...

Six of us arrived in this hotel from Kobe. The bus was the easiest way to get to this little town. The hotel offers the shutter bus pick us up by the bus station. It runs every 15 mins so we didn't have to call the hotel. All the large rooms were fully booked so we ended up with two... More
