Rooms were clean and staff were very helpful. Although the hotel seemed very dated, that is the norm for hotels in this area. Came with all the amenities you would need from a short stay. We were also allowed to have breakfast even though we were supposed to book it beforehand (cheap and tasty). 10 minute walk to kawaguchiko station...

We stayed at Kawaguchiko Business & Resort SAWA Hotel for only one night but it was a very pleasant experience. We got there early before our check-in time so we left our luggages at the reception, however, when we got back to the hotel later on, our luggages were already up in our room. Staffs are very nice and speak...

We woke up, went to the balcony, looked to the side... and boom, Mt Fuji was staring back at us. Really close and really good looking; the area around the hotel wasn't great (it's just about 15min from the station, but not the best walk) but Mt Fuji made up for it. The room was okay, the staff was really...

I regret only staying one night in this hotel. Staff is friendly and english-fluent, and they kept our luggage before check in time. After check in time, the luggages were brought in to our room.

We checked in for one night only before climbing Mt Fuji the very next day. Location wasn't too bad, although it could have been better in terms of walking down from the train station - streets leading to the property were poorly lit at nighttime. Obviously it wasn't hotel's fault at all, so I don't blame them for it. -...

Stayed there for 2 nights. Great staff! Always helpful. Shuttle bus service from and to the Kawaguchiko trainstation. It's a 15 minute walk, but with your luggage, very convenient. Free high-speed Wi-Fi is available at the reception desk to take to your room. Make sure you take a pillow from the closet in the lobby. These are way more comfortable...

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.
