They have rooms in two directions. One side faces a parking lot (still a good view) the other side faces mt. Fuji. We stayed in a room facing the parking lot as we didn't want to move during our stay which we extended twice. They offered us 3 times to move! Very kind of them. In general it is a nice place to stay with a window front in your room and a great onsen on the ground floor which most people use during night times. The bus stop is a 1 min walk on the lake side. From there you can take a direct bus to Aiokigahara Forest. Make sure to buy one of these combo tickets at the train station when you arrive in Kawaguchiko as the bus gets expensive for longer distances and it soon starts to sum up. The hotel picked us up at the station for free but you need to contact the tourist information at Kawaguchiko station to call them. The ropeway for a nice Fuji view is a 20 mins walk on the lakeside. The interiors of the hotel are old fashioned and the room was a bit cramped with tables. One TV table. One shelf. One coffee table. One fridge... So you end up having no space for your luggage. The beds were soft but that is up to your taste. Overall this hotel could use some renovation / investment but for a good price in a quiet area with a great onsen and helpful receptionists there is nothing much to complain about.

Made one visit to this Onsen, it has pools both inside and outdoors (under shelter). Pools were in a traditional Japanese rock pool style and very pleasant. Tattoo friendly and 1000Y for 2 hours spa use.

We booked this hotel about 12 months ago, and were horrified when we looked at the latest reviews just before we arrived. Not being able to cancel we headed here with trepidation. We had a room with a double bed and a open air hot spring bath. It was not cheap but the quality certainly was. The whole property felt unclean and we certainly did not want to use the community onson. Was definitely our worst hotel in our stay in Japan.We enjoyed Kawaguchiko very much, the restaurant were great and the views of Mt Fuji were stunning but the hotel did not match.

I was staying in the shared dorm, with 8 futon beds in a room. There is no locker and bathroom. You can only shower at the public Onsen. The toilet on the same level is shared between men and ladies, which can be quite awkward. However overall its value for money for the solo traveler as it is the only onsen hotel that provide shared dorms in the vicinity.

It was an enjoyable experience staying at the Royal - our base for an early-season Fuji climb. Its lakeside location, served by shuttle bus from Kawaguchiko station, ryokan style rooms and meal service, together with a generously sized onsen made for a memorable visit. Had the feel of an old-style family resort hotel just opening up for the busy climbing season.It was a little threadbare here and there, but not without charm.

Very convenient location to the lake (but not to the station) as it is right next to the lake and can cross the bridge to get beautiful picture of Fuji as well as catching sunrise from the opposite. The hotel looks old but I guess you get what you paid for. Decent room and size. On a side note the hotel lobby as well as ground floor toilet is creepy. The female toilet lighting is so bad that the moment you close the door you need a headlight or a torch to continue your business... I hope it isn’t meant to design as such so one couldn’t see any insects/cockroaches there though. There is shuttle service from hotel to station however it only operates from 8:30am to 10am at 30 minute interval, it would be better if they could open another round of shuttle from 2:30pm to 4pm like near to their check in hours as dragging a luggage to walk to the hotel is no joke, especially when one do not know what bus can be taken from the station...

Cute onsen, 1 indoor bath, 2 outdoors bath. Nice facilities, and they are tattoo friendly, which is not so common in the Kawaguchiko area. Entrance fee is 1000 yens, worth the price. The 2nd outdoor bath (rocks and trees) is really peaceful. Not too crowded (Monday afternoon)

My husband and I enjoyed our stay so much in Kawaguchi. More so, staying in this hotel. We had a tatami style accommodation which made us feel so immersed in the Japanese culture. We also enjoyed the kimono style robes in the room. The greatest part is seeing Mt. Fuji right outside our bedroom window! Thank you also to the wonderful staff, especially the ones at the restaurant who serve us breakfast everyday. They were very cheerful and happy to serve us every morning. This hotel also has it's own shared onsen. We already miss beautiful Kawaguchi and hope to go back one day.

We went to see Mt. Fuji and stayed here for a night, we had a great time, it's in a good location, walking from train station, and walking from the little town with restaurants. The place is lovely and it's nice to have an onsen (hot spring) in your hotel. Price was reasonable and staff was friendly. They have Japanese style robes in the room.

We stayed for 2 nights and the room was clean and quite spacious. It was strange to have the shower and bath outside the room, on the balcony. It was quite cold in the morning, so it was unusual to have to go "outside" for the hot shower. The instructions to use the shower were all in Japanese, so we had to get someone up to show us how to use the shower and outside bath. The location is excellent.
