I booked this onsen hotel because of walking distance to Gero station and thier good review score. It exceeds my expectation because of very friendly staff and 3 impressive indoor/outdoor onsens. I did not schedule the shuttle bus but the bus driver was waiting with a sign in front of the train station to make me feel good even I... More

Only without internet and WiFi service inside bed... More

The hotel is large, well equipped, nicely decorated in Japanese style, with a beautiful pond in the lobby floor. The hotel has a long history; you can "feel" the Japanese tradition. The onsens are clean and large. Massage chair and foot massage device are provided. Room is spacious. We got a combo western and Japanese tatami room. Hotel staff are... More

Was there for wedding, place is quite old fashioned but to be honest I'm probably not the target market. Its not a luxury hotel by international standards but probably the best in Gero. Nice choice of Onsen and therefore a very relaxing stop if you are travelling through with friends or family. We had dinner in the Japanese style room... More

The hotel were very welcoming on arrival and an English speaker took us to our room and explained the hotel facilities. Breakfast was excellent, all the food was described in English and there was a good selection. The highlight was the onsen at the hotel, we only had the chance to try the outside pool which was very relaxing, don't... More

Suimeikan can be considered the "big brother" of all Onsen Ryokans in Gero. It's a huge establishment that caters to individual travellers as well as to groups, and is popular with tourists. Services are very good, but note that the breakfast buffet is at fixed times. If you saunter down only after a deep sleep at 930, it's all over.... More

Really loved this spa resort. Gero is a very nice hot springs town and it has different flavour for summer and winter. The rooms in the "Rinsenkaken" were huge and are practically suites. Service quality could not be faulted and they even brief you on the rituals of hot springs in Japan.

We stayed here for 2 nights. We had the choice of sleeping on the floor or in 2 twin beds. We chose the beds! The beds were very comfortable. I didn't mind the pillows, but my husband thought they were to firm. The air conditioner kept the room very cool. The view from the room was beautiful! Our hostess was... More

I had high expectations for this hotel, as it is one of the more famous hotels in the area. It is an extremely big hotel and a lot of guests. Checking in was a lengthy process, due to them placing our key to one side and forgetting about us for a while, which was a bit of a disappointment and... More
