We stayed in a 3 room special room with irori. Extremely generous in size. Private outside bath, charcoal pit, the surprises kept coming. the ladies outdoor onsen is huge with a mountain view. Several private baths you can use when free. Food was amazing with local produce. Why stay in an ordinary onsen when you xan experience this. Highly recommended.

This was such a lovely experience and I’ll remember it forever. The women’s onsen was the most spectacular I have ever seen and just so beautiful; the photos really don’t do it justice. The hotel itself is fairly decrepit (all sort of rusted faded glory, the corridors look like they’ve been untouched in fifty years) - so definitely not a luxury ryokan. But it is spotlessly clean, comfortable rooms and had lovely retro styling (especially the gorgeous cafe and change rooms). The garden is to die for and makes for beautiful photos. The dinner was neither here nor there but they were great at accommodating my vegetarian request and it’s served in a lovely room. But the staff are what made it all so special - the kindest, warmest ladies you could imagine. On a practical note - Yufuin town is pretty awful (touristy and junky) so don’t bank on spending any time there. If you’re touring the area I found Michelle Mackintosh’s book “onsens of Japan” very helpful and great tips for day bathing, hotels etc. Thank you Musouen for being so charming and a wonderful memory.

My friend and I booked here for a night on our way back from Beppu and we are sure glad that we did! We had a half Japanese half western room with a nice view and plenty of space. Very traditional Japanese style inn with amazing outdoor bath options including free rental of private bathes. Food was terrific, grounds were beautiful but what really made it for us was the amazing staff. All were very accommodating, friendly and welcoming. Only challenge (for some) is a lot of stairs and slopes to go anywhere since it is built on a hillside, though that is why the views are amazing. And our futons were not comfortable....but I’m still giving it a five!

Great experience in here. People are friendly, and the meal are tasty. They also have several choice for Onsen, you can choose private or public. It almost takes 30 minute if you went to hotel by walking and enjoy the scene in Yufuin. 700-800 yen for Taxi from Yufuin station.

As I went to Yufuin with my wife, we visited this hotel to take a bath. Even you don’t overnight at this hotel, you can use its bathing facilities by paying about $6. The water is real Onsen : hot springs. The bathing areas are outdoor and you can enjoy a nice view of surrounding mountains.
