We spent 2 wonderful nights in this spotlessly clean establishment and were pampered constantly by the friendly staff. There are in total 3 different baths and the schedule is flipped around by gender mid-day so everyone gets to experience everything. We were very fortunate that it had already snowed early this year and the cool down after the hot outside... More

Boun is one of the more expensive ryokan I've ever stayed in (23k¥ on a Thursday night for a single room. ¥/person is usually lower for multiple people/room), but definitely worth it. The location is perfect, a block up the hill from the yubatake, halfway to Sainokawara park. The interior of the inn is wonderful, with sprawling hallways crossing multiple... More

The hotel is on process of renovation. I got a newly-renovated room. Paint-smell is quiet strong in the room. Bed is comfy but pillows are too hard. There are at least 8 electrical outlets in the room. Bathroom is too small and equipped with dated-bathtub. Dinner buffet is just average but their plum cocktail is nice. The onsen here is... More

Location: Although it's on a small hill, the location is between the bus station and Sainokawara park. It's convenient for visitors to sightseeing. Service: Some of the staff can speak English and Chinese. All are very courteous, and they provide prompt service bringing us to the bus station while leaving. Booking: booking online, and we also received telephone confirmation for... More

We had a great stay at this onsen hotel. Location: The ryokan is situated up on a small slope from the Yubaka (only a few minutes’ walk), away from the busy pedestrian/car traffic around the Yubaka. Staff: Very friendly and polite, as expected. One of the male staff at the front desk spoke good English, so there shouldn’t be a... More

The service was impeccable. Our room was really big, with 3 different rooms (entryway, living room, dining room/bedroom, little enclosed patio room) The bathroom was a good size too. The bathes were great, with different types of water (indoor/outdoor pools), we went middle of the week so it wasn't very busy and sometimes I was in the bath all by... More

We had an excellent stay at Boun – a medium-size, high class ryokan situated in Kusatsu Onsen. Rooms here come in a range of prices, although we decided to opt for the cheapest. The pricing system works with rooms in the newer building being more expensive, and rooms in the old building being offered less. All rooms, however, have recently... More
