This is the place to experience real Japanese onsen culture. The Japanese family room for 4 is spacious and great. We had our first experience at the public hot spring, and we literally went there for a dip 2-3 times per day! You can choose your favourite yukata at the lobby, so some of us tried a few different designs... More

We stayed there for one night with dinner and breakfast included. The staff is really nice and making efforts to speak English (even a little bit of French !). We could not enter the public bath because of my tattoo but we really enjoy our private bath on the balcony. Typical kaiseki dinner full of surprises and really good Japanese... More

This Japanesse inn was a good experience in the complete culture. They offer cotton kamona in every size to be worn everywhere in the inn. If you have never had a Japanese hot bath I suggest you you tube it so you can know the process. The food at this resturant was excellent except the western breakfast. I suggest Japanesse... More

Despite it's bland, modern exterior/entry, this Japanese inn provides traditional comfort with large rooms, indoor hot springs, 24 hour tea/coffee dispensars, afternoon tea time with a white chocolate fountain, and tasty cuisine. It's an ideal location for walkers as directly across the street is a park. Also, down the hill is Gyoza Center with a local narrow gauge train and... More

This hotel is located near the Gora station but in a hard slope. However a trick is to take the cable car from the station for one stop and then you are just at the level of the hote, so it is pretty convenient to visit the Hakone arel. The hotel is not recent but in good condition. The rooms... More

good location, very convenience, nice food in restaurant. need to pay 3,200 yen for late check out for only 1 hour. The hotel gate will close at 0000 to 0500. The open area in my room can see another building, it means they can see my open bath tub too, there is a curtain but it will become meaningless if... More

We booked the western room with open-air bath and mountain view. The room was huge and comes with plenty of amenities that is expected of it. It is abit on the pricey side, even though it was on offer. Paid about 30,000Yen for 1 night inclusive of full-boarding, ie. dinner and breakfast. It is a pretty steep walk up to... More

It started with us calling 3 times in advance to the hotel asking for the shuttle service they offer on the web site to come and pick us up. After 20 min of waiting we took a 3 min taxi to the hotel. The front desk were nothing but impolite. Over the time of our visit we were able to... More

The room was very basic. If you are looking for something nice, look elsewhere. Their shuttle service also didn't work for us. We reached Gora station at 1 pm and called for shuttle, and they said the shuttle service hadn't started for the day. On our way back too at around 9 am, they said they couldn't drop us. The...
