The hotel is well located within walking distance of the train station. It is clean and rooms are very confortable with plenty of space. There is even a washing machine in case you get dusty while climbing Mount Fuji (quite likely). The personnel was nice and helpful. The price/quality ratio is very high. Highly recommended.

This hotel is on walking distance to the Kawaguchiko station. If you arrive after 3 PM a shuttle service to the hotel is provided. We walked there as we arrived a lot earlier and just wanted to leave our luggage there. The twin room we had was rather small, we had to put our luggage right next to our beds.... More

Hotel was a bit old but keep very well. EXCEPT, very strong ODOR in the toilet that discounted the rates for this hotel. Besides, we were happy to see the Mt.Fuji on our balcony, It's a surprise for sure.

We only stayed a night here... we were prepping to climb Mt. Fuji, and did a little sightseeing the day before. We asked some advice for places to eat, and got some good advice about a close by yaki-tori place... And they held our bags for quite a while before we checked in. Nothing special about the room... average, but... More

It was my first experience at a Japanese hotel and it was great. The staff were awesome, they bent over backwards to accommodate me. The hotel was super clean and my room was spacious. It was two blocks, walking distance, from the Kawaguchiko Station. I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel was located about a 5-10 minute walk from Kawaguchiko station through the backroads. It wasn't a problem even with luggage. Clean, quiet, more than functional, with a mini kitchen (although spoons were missing), desk and tv, and a balcony with a great view of Mt Fuji. The bed was plush, offering restful sleep. Local food and shops are... More
