We stayed here for 3 nights in August 2020. The ryokan is in a great location, and is within comfortable driving range of a number of must see attractions in Akan National Park. The staff are also super friendly and very welcoming. The setting is also beautiful, and very relaxing . We paid a bit more for an upgrade room which was definitely worth it for the extra space and the view (see note below re. the room temperature though). For us however, the food is not a reason to stay at La Vista Akangawa. I guess this comes down to personal taste, but my wife and I found the food to be average at best. We love ryokan meals generally, and we were really looking forward to the meals - but unfortunately the standard was in our opinion surprisingly poor given the other reviews on this site. Maybe we caught them on an off week when the ingredients were not good quality or something similar. They also desperately need to clean the windows of the building - particularly in the restaurant. The beautiful view onto the river is spoiled by how dirty the floor to ceiling windows have become. Such a shame because the view would otherwise have been amazing. Not really what you expect for the prices being charged. The room was great, nice and spacious, with a lovely bath looking out onto the river. The only issue was the temperature - the air con doesn't seem to be particularly effective. When you are paying such high prices you expect the room temperature to be manageable, and the windows to be clean! So in summary, the location and setting is superb, but I don't think that alone justifies the price tag given the average food and other issues mentioned above. We won't be staying here again - i would have given it 2.5 stars, but felt 2 stars was too harsh, so rounded up to 3.

We booked a riverside room and it’s spectacular! The view looks like a painting! You may see wild deers day and night, during breakfast or enjoying onsen. Our kids were so excited, especially they could get an ice-cream every time after onsen. Private onsen and the one within the room is equally great and comfortable. The hotel is beautifully constructed amongst a tranquil forest. The only drawback is that, as most hotels do, they don’t have air-conditioning when the summer is over. During our stay, outdoor temp maybe around 5-6, but the room is 27 degree ! We have opened all the ventilation as told by a staff, but still the room was too warm to us. It was a hard sleeping night. Nevertheless, we hope to visit this hotel again, maybe in cooler seasons.

We have stayed at a few places but this was the best. Our room was large with every convenience. The highlight was we chose a room with a view. You look straight out on a beautiful river and trees. We could see a fisherman in the morning and deer at night. The dinner was at a window with a typical but extremely good set menu and similar for breakfast.

Our room had the river view which was hypnotizing to gaze at. It lighted during the night time so we spent lot of time enjoying it with some drinks. The 8 dish dinner that was included was amazing, but the japanese breakfast surpassed expectations as well. Free private baths were available and the bath tub in the room was cozy as well. Would have preferred more traditional yukata over the shirt and trousers they had. Overall the stay was very relaxing and worth the money.

We booked a river view room for three guests. The hotel is lovely, room was excellent and check-in/out was efficient. English widely spoken by staff. Meals were exquisite. We enjoyed an almost two hour kaiseki dinner worthy of a top end restaurant. Breakfast was equally nice. There are three private baths which we didn't try. The outdoor onsen had lovely views of greenery and river. Wifi was strong throughout the hotel for those who wish to stay connected. The views from the room and various parts of the hotel are so lovely and peaceful that one can just soak in the atmosphere without leaving the hotel itself. A nice retreat in itself. While expensive, it does provide value for money.

The resort is well designed to integrate into the beautiful setting of its environs. Every room has a lovely view of the river that flows next to the resort. Town is just 10 minutes away by car. The dinners and breakfasts were good and well planned.

We booked two nights and enjoyed every minute. There are several onsens to choose from and the room was lovely with a nice wooden bath. Spring for the river view - dont go cheap on the parking lot view. The 4 onsen were all very relaxing, very well designed and gave a sense of privacy. Peaceful. Serene. A real retreat. Nature all around. Deer wandering by. A lovely river. A forest. Snow falling gently. A place of Haiku (which coincidentally is written in the baths and in the restaurant). The massage place is not open every day. The meals were served in private booths and the staff did everything to make sure that communication was at its upmost even though english was minimal . The food was outstanding. This is not a small hotel, but it didn't feel crowded except in the afternoon when groups arrived. A combination of Japanese and foreign tourists. Very few westerners. In the restaurant the booths kept privacy and quiet (apart from a few children!) So different from the large drab institutional hotels in akanko-onsen village. Yes you need a car but how else does one get to Akan unless on a bus tour? One nit pick. Why no yukata? The polyester pyjamas were a real downer to an otherwise wonderful experience. I would return to this place and recommend

Lovely picturesque location, small but well thought out rooms. Mainly local Japanese family groups, with very few foreign guests. Restaurant waiters do not speak any English but try their best! Food is good but be prepared to smell of the hotpot afterwards.

stayed for 1N in this excellent hot spring resort, in a room with private onsen. architecturally interesting complex on a riverside. not the usual concrete block japanese tourist hotel! the room, like the baths too, had a nice view of the river. room and public areas were cosy and stylish with wood interiors. very relaxing and serene atmosphere, felt like being surrounded by nature which it indeed was. this is not a small hotel, but it didn't feel too crowded at any point, not even in the restaurant. (maybe during winter high season it would be different!!) kaiseki dinner was excellent. glad i chose this one over the hotels in akanko-onsen village, drove through that village the next day and all the places there seeemed very drab and mass-market. would not hesitate to return to this place.

Was checked into the hotel by a very patient and obliging lady who showed me another room that I was interested in upgrading to. The room was lovely, by the stream and a good view of the mountains. Enjoyed the room thoroughly. However, at the restaurant, we were placed in this table at the end of the walkway where they led guests in. Later arrivals were ushered to prime spots more central and not in an alleyway. Next morning at breakfast, while the whole row of river view seats were largely empty, they wanted to seat us at the other extreme corner of the restaurant with no views at all. We had to ask to change seats which they acceded to. A Caucasian couple who came after us was immediately seated at the river view seats. Rather dissatisfied with this untypical Japanese "hospitality" which rather marred a wonderful hotel.
