Beautiful hotel but not cheap especially we arrived there during Japanese golden week vacation period. Hotel room is clean but start getting old and it's about time to do some refurbish. However, they put a lot more effort at public area. Beautiful decor all around. Very nice public spa area. Can pay extra 1000 yen per person to enjoy the... More

a very nice onsen hotel. We had a nice banquet kaiseki dinner; efficient serving staff and with our Japanese speaking guide, got to understand the different dishes served. The onsen furo (bath) was nice; private rooms at $15 per person were available for the shy or romantic ones. WI-FI in rooms. This area is known for its tea.

For Japanese travelers, mostly. The hotel is quite dated, but that's its charm. We stayed on the top floor with great view.

The layout of the hotel is also impressive,... More
