We enjoyed our stay at Gora Tensui, there was a choice of onsen and spacious en suite in our room, we missed dining at the restaurant because we didn't pre book, however the staff recommended a fantastic tofu restaurant close by, great recommendation! The room was traditional, spacious and clean. Staff were very helpful with parking, coming outside to show... More

We did not realize how big an area Hakone actually was until arriving in the area. It took us two trains to arrive in Gora but I am glad we did as it was a fantastic base for seeing the area. Most of the sights were in easy distance through the public transport systems near the hotel. Hakone is fairly... More

The hotel's main selling point of the warm foot-bath along the bar is, frankly, just annoying. If you want to have a drink you not only have to hope to find a passing member of staff (who will serve you a massively overpriced short measure) you also have to take your shoes and socks off and then when you are...

I am sorry I spent twice the price of the palace hotel in Tokyo in this Ryokan Service was bad with screaming kids in the restaurant but more importantly got sick for 5 days because of what they served for diner! So basically ruined a so far great time in Japan! Oh by the way view on construction site from... More

We booked on the basis of other Trip Advisor reviews and were a little disappointed. Firstly the positives, its near the station (but be warned the signage outside is only in Japanese); the staff are very helpful and the staff and service in the dining area are really very good. On the flip side; we stayed in Room 307 and... More

We were a little early arriving at Gora Tensui. Our room was ready but we did not experience the check in described by other guest which included a hot water footpath with champagne. No worries, the young man who welcomed us invited us to have complementary drinks later. We were led to our room which was a bit of a... More

Tensui is ideally located 1 minute walk from the train station. The lobby is spacious and you are welcome with a glass to drink and invited to dip you feet in the water running by the lobby bar while sitting at it. The room was simple but very charming and done with a lot of taste. The onsen area in... More

I stayed in Gora Kadan when I stayed at Hakone a few years ago, it was an amazing experience but at a price. Stayed Tensui this time cos I the rate is half that of Kadan. Tensui is a relatively smaller hotel but the room and lobby are very nice and relatively good service. There is a public spa and... More

Similar to all other reviews we found this ryokan truly a respite from reality. Services were comprehensive and the japanese room with tatami mats quite comfortable to sleep on. Dinner and breakfast offerings were more than plentiful with outstanding presentation. The private onsens on the 4th floor were great if you're not comfortable with public bathing. As a note for...

We stayed here for two nights during our 10 days in Japan and it was a highlight of an excellent trip. Accessible to all guests are two private onsens: no reservations needed for those, if there's nobody in it you can lock the door, bathe up and hop in. These are both on the 4th floor on a private covered... More
