Reading the reviews, it seemed hit or miss but I wanted to visit this old establishment. Yes, it's old...I mean, 1300 years old. It's been expanded and is huge. Does it need some fixing up? Yes, but I've been to plenty of regular hotels that have way more wear and tear and only decades old, not centuries. Anyway, the people... More

Stayed at room 812 which is the largest and grandest room in the property. Personal attendant was very kind and professional but everything is mediocre at best. Food quality and presentation was nothing special and facility needs serious updates. Garden looked very tired and building need serious updates. Wifi only works in lobby and public bath area. It's very hard... More

I read the recent negative reviews of Hoshi the day before my husband and I were to arrive there and to say I panicked is an understatement. I tried to cancel, but couldn't do so without a 100% penalty. So we took the train to Kaga Onsen and were picked up promptly by the hotel shuttle and ferried to the... More

I suspect this must be the lowest point in Hoshi's long history. It desperately needs thorough remodeling and professional management. Carpets in hallways and other public areas are worn and horribly stained, threadbare in places. Meals are served in a large, non-descript hall, in a slap-the-plates-down-when-we-please fashion. The quality of the food is mediocre. The ceiling in the otherwise enjoyable... More

This hotel definitely shows its age; decor is dated and tired-looking, the whole place definitely needs a major update. Food was ok, ingredients were good quality but nothing to write home about. Staff speaks very little English but they are courteous and friendly. There's a small outdoor onsen and an indoor one. Waking up to birds chirping and absolute quietness... More

Having read the reviews I was really looking forward to our 2 night stay. Staying at one of the world's oldest hotels with all the tradition - excellent! However the reality was that the ryokan was in desperate need of an upgrade, the room was enormous but it was tired and had big cracks in the sink, water stains in... More

Although the location might be a bit offputting (nothing much to see or do in the area), the hotel itself makes up for it. The room was massive - balcony with a lovely view to the garden, tea room, sleeping area, toilet, large bathroom etc. The onsen was really relaxing as well. However, try to follow the general etiquette and... More

The allure of one of the oldest hotels is awesome except it has since been enlarged and its HUGE. getting lost in it is not a possibility - its a certainty. The food was OK, mediocre not great. The service was also not best. Wifi is available only in certain areas.

旅館の建物は趣きがありますが、改修がされていないので絨毯が擦り切れていたりして います。旅館の素晴らしい庭を楽しむことができるように、喫茶の場所を解放してフリードリンクを楽しめる場所にすれば、資源の有効活用ができると思います。 食事は懐石ということでしたが、いまいちです。他の方も書いておられましたが、天ぷらも冷たく、旅館の売りの、温かいものは温かく、冷たいものは冷たくというキャッチフレーズから程遠いです。従業員もプロというよりはパート、バイトの類です。 I do not recommend this hotel because you would not get what you expected. The room is spacious and has a touch of Japanese taste, but the dinner is not good and the service is not good,either.

A great experience of traditional Japanese ryokan. Our lovely room with sitting area overlooking the garden and tatami matting, also provided the yukata for each of us to use during our stay. Tea is provided before dinnner and also opportunity to use the onsen where hot spring bathing indoors and out gives utter relaxation, after the ritual scrub and shower,... More
