We stayed 1 night in the Japanese style room with private onsen. From the moment we arrived in the hotel, all staff were very attentive and going above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience. We stayed half board and enjoyed a traditional Kaiseki dinner and breakfast served in our room. Note: The menu is not very flexible for dietary requirements (heavily seafood based). We were lucky that we had a wonderful host who accommodated some but not all of our dietary requirements. If you are looking for a traditional ryokan experience, with a beautiful private onsen view and enjoy kaiseki cuisine based we would really recommend this hotel!

It may not be very near to the Hakone Station as it seems if we are arriving with luggage as it is located at the far end of town.

But its location is compenstated by the surroundings with a stream running across the road in front of the hotel, and far from the main road where the actions and tourists are giving a serene feel especially early in a misty morning with fresh mountain air.

Was allocated quite a spacious view with balcony. Transport to the station is provided at 9.30am daily upon request.

Staff were exemplary and helpful despite little spoken English except for 1 during my stay,

I chose this hotel based on the reviews for a taste of Japanese lifestyle and the outdoor onsen.
Was not disappointed. Friendly staff. Gentleman at Reception desk English fine but morning team English not good. So if you need directions etc that is going to require a higher level of English ask when you check in. The lady who explained the wearing of the Yukata and explained general room info does not really speak English but somehow you understand what she says.
Outdoor onsen was stunning. Although public I had the place to myself. Ladies between 3pm and 12am and men start at 6am.
The bathroom is a bit tight but ok. All amenities are there except body lotion, so bring along if you need.
There is no wifi in room. Only in Lobby but you can hire a wifi router for only ¥500 a night.
Once you have directions it is easy to get to hotel.
There is a shuttle bus which leaves HakoneYumoto station every 30 minutes(:15 &:45). The bus stop is across from the station.
It costs 100yen per person.
Use "A bus" and just tell the driver "Senkei". It stops right in front of hotel.
The last bus leaves at 6:45pm.
I rated this hotel very good as it offered a nice Japanese experience, with a lovely outdoor onsen. Pic you looking for a modern hotel then this is not for you.

Hotel Senkei is located about 12 minutes by foot from Hakone Yumoto station. This was a ryokan—not a regular hotel. We slept on comfortable futons in a room separate from the living area. The room had tatami floors. There was a kotatsu—a heating area under a table that’s covered with a large blanket. We sat on low chairs and heated our legs and feet to warm up.

The ryokan has two onsens. One open air onsen on the 5th floor was private with separate times for men and women. The public onsen on the ground floor had separate baths for men and women. The 5th floor onsen’s water was hotter than the public onsen.

Breakfasts and dinners were served in our room. The presentation of the dishes was beautiful—a work of art for the eyes. Many dishes were unknown to us but each was fun to discover and savor.

Our room opened up to the mountain across the river and we could see the cherry blossoms trees on the hillside. Not many but each stood out against the green mountain. Autumn must be a wonderful site with the changing colors.

Our server was Chie and always polite and gracious. After dinner she asked what size yukata we were wearing and provided new ones for the next day.

Hotel Senkei is older but does not lack any charm. This was our first experience staying in a ryokan and we were not disappointed. We would love to return in the future.

We stayed one night at Hotel Senkei and enjoyed every minute. Staff were welcoming and attentive, despite language barriers. Our room, with private onsen bath, was very spacious and beautiful. It was Japanese style with seating and futon bed on the floor. We were served dinner and breakfast in our room and both meals were fabulous, with very generous portions. The scenery surrounding the hotel is astounding as well. Great value. Book early.

I travelled with my family just this December 2014 and after reading all of the great reviews here on Tripadvisor I was really looking forward to staying at Hotel Senkei. I stayed at the Hotel senkei Plaza Inn for 1 night and boy was I glad it was just 1 night.

For starters, there was absolutely NO elevator and we had to climb up to the 4th floor and to top it off the rooms were so cramped and there was NO free wifi. We rented a router for 500 yen and the internet was so slow, we ended up not using it at all, I think even 3G would have been faster. The onsens were so small and I honestly didn't see the big deal about the onsen here.

Maybe the people who stay at this hotel stay for the ryokans and that is completely fine since I didn't stay the ryokan I can't vouch for that but don't stay at the Plaza Inn. The hotel is also a bit far from the Hakone-Yumoto station but since the weather was nice and cold I didn't mind walking a bit more, however, there is a shuttle service to the hotel from the station for 100 yen per person but be prepared to squeeze and stand on the bus.

And to top it all off, the staff speak zero English but since I could speak Japanese, it was not so much of a struggle but for tourists who cannot speak the language, there's going to be a bit of the problem there.

Regardless, this was an eye-opening experience of how simple the lives of the Hakone people are but maybe it's because I was brought up in a city environment and have been spoiled too much by the comforts of a city-life that I couldn't adjust to the simpler Hakone life.

We had the 'twin room with Tatami'. It was old, outworn en musty. There was a continously smell from the drain in the bathroom. This hotel is pretty expensive and presents itself as a ryokan. But it is nowhere near a ryokan. In the lobby they showe a tripadvisor award form 2010. seems that was the last year they have done any maintanence. Moisty bedshades, noisy rooms and only wifi in the lobby. The lobby has a constant smell of sigarettes and insence.

As usual staff was well accommodating and welcoming.
The room was not in the main building but in an annexe above a restaurant.
Room in itself was clean and according the pics in reservation. Very poor mattress. No view just milky glas windows.
Frequently bad smell from restaurant.
I booked a double room for two nights and paid 400$ no meals no breakfast!
The first time I feel cheated in Japan

Honestly, this is not a Hotel, this is the experience of a lifetime. We stayed in the Senkei Ryokan Hotel which is 1 part of the 3 part hotel (it has the traditional Ryokan House, the Yamagoso Annex which is Ryokan style bungalows and the western style part). Stay in one of the 2 traditional houses. It was so amazing, after this long time I am still thinking about it and even though I've travelled a lot, THIS is the trip I will cherish the most forever. Big part of the experience was a) the amazing Onsen on the roof, b) the absolutely fabulous dining in the room (which is a dying tradition, so experience is as long as you can). I could talk about Hotel Senkei forever, so I can't put everything in writing here. If you have any questions, please contact me. All I can put in words for now is: it has been one of the most incredible things I've ever experienced. Don't miss out.

It is only 10 munites walk. You can get a map at the information and they will mark the hotel on the map. On the way to the hotel, there are many shops after turn left you will walk beside the rever. It is not difficult to get the hotel. But if you ask them hotel shuttle bus will pick you up at the station. It is free. But you have to tell them the time. I recomend to stay "Yamagaso" in hotel Senkei where is the swuite. I just came back from there, it was a great stay.
