My friend and i wanted to stay at an onsen hotel very much during our trip in japan. We came across this hotel in this tripadvisor site and were very excited to book this hotel upon the many great reviews given.
The location of the hotel is pretty acessible with the directions they given to us to get to the hotel. The staff were very nice and helpful esp the maid who served our room.
The dinner was served in our room at 6pm, which was bit early but since we dont have much to do in that hotel, and wanted to go into the onsen later in the night, we decided to have a very early one. An early dinner was good, cos their dinner course had so much food and we couldnt finish it all! They have an instructions manual book which teaches tourists how to enjoy the onsen, and the dinner. But the instructins to eat the dinner in the right order, eg the appetiser, etc.. was kinda confusing, and we juz eat whatever we set our eyes on; too much choices. :)
We did not try the indoor onsen since we are only there for a night and had to leave the hotel early next morning to tour hakone, so we tried only the outdoors onsen. It was not very big, i guess sufficient for about 6 people. Lucky for us , both of us went in pretty late so there wasnt anybody and we had the whole bath to ourselves.
We did not venture out of the hotel during night, since there isnt much stuff to do outside and spent the whole night eating our awesome dinner and enjoying the onsen. Its a great place if you want to relax and recharge for the rest of your trip.
The next morning, we are greeted again with a enormous breakfast which we couldnt finish yet again. A great breakfast to start our tour in hakone was really awesome and we really felt recharged to continue our remaining trip in japan.
Overall, this hotel is really awesome and will stay again if we visit hakone again. ;)
