Amazing place and service. A little bit pricey but well worth it. The staff speak English well and cares guests. When we went out for a little shopping just at the 7-11 right across the street at night, the front desk provided us Japanese coats. The restaurant is good, and the view of the garden is beautiful. On upper floors... More

You will expect a high price for a stay in hot spring hotel in Japan. But I love to do it as the food included and the service they provide will make the value up. This one is outstanding. First it is very close to the bus stop of Arima. And just next to the shopping street. The hot spring... More

We took express bus one hour from Umeda directly. As the hotel was just next to the terminus, it was very convenient for us as we took the luggage and stayed overnight. This is a hot spring hotel, you can enjoy in public or private bath. For private bath, it cost ¥2000 per hour but suitable for couple or family... More

You get what you pay for in this hot spring hotel. It's quite pricey but the service is really good. Pros - 5 minutes walk from the train station - right next to shops - good view from the room - excellent breakfast - pretty good hot spring and massage chair cons: - the staff doesn't speak English very well

I am Japanese - and I think I may have a bit higher standards for Japanese Inns. I don't like those which use low-quality china, make bland food, lack quality service. Zuien may be on a bit pricier side, but the service, hot spring, and food is all good. They are good but not in a snobbish way. They will... More
