Stayed here 2 nights recently. Essentially to view the Hakone outdoor museum. Would most definitely go back. Every aspect of the hotel verged on perfection. The ambience, food , room ( we had the traditional Japanese room on 2F) , amenities and most importantly the staff were everything you'd expect from such an experience. The hotel could not do enough...

It's our first time to Hakone. The N'EX was delay and it took us four hours to the hotel. The tram to Gora is very special but it's really slow... Please drive if you have a choice. It's was around 7:30pm and we were so exhausted, but the warm welcome and spectacular decoration really refreshed us. We had a wonderful...

Gora Hanaougi has 3 locations in Hakone, we stayed at the Madoka No Mori location, in the twin room with tatami area and mountain view, and everything was beyond our expectations. The spotlessly clean room is equipped with any amenities one can think of - free beer, sparkling water, espresso machine, especially the green tea which is amazing. You can...

The hotel welcome was very nice and the views fantastic. The outdoor private onsen was small but lovely, and the public onsen area was great. The main issue complaint is that I was awoken in the middle of the night by a horrendous sulfur smell that kept me up most of the night. It was not there the night before...

Staff are very Friendly and warm. It's about 10 mins away from Hakone Open Air Museum. Food here is great, they server your food in a private dinning area, while enjoying dinner, the staff will prepare your room for bedtime.

If you're planning to stay here, it's not worth it for just one day. Stay 2 days. As other reviews have mentioned, it's quite a distance to get there. To be honest, I felt that the experience was overpriced and slightly overrated. The room was nice, the private tub was nice to have but small, the service was amazing, and...

Gora Hanaougi is a traditional Japanese hotel located not too far from Tokyo The ryokan offers private onsen on your balcony and a spacious room. Taking an bath in the onsen early in the morning or at sunset was really relaxing. The tradition is merged with confort, excellent service and fantastic food! You'll find a kimono in your room so...

We highly recommend this ryokan. The service was impeccable. We had private onsen outside overlooking beautiful landscape. Kaiseki dinner was pure art Unfortunately too much food and our western tastebuds could not appreciate all. Visit. You will not be disappointed

I wish we could have stayed longer! We stayed one night at this wonderful ryokan while in Hakone for our honeymoon. The room was lovely (comfy "bed" on floor, amazing private onsen (hot tub) on porch), the service was superb, and the food was incredible! We also loved the location of the ryokan. It's the last stop on the cable...

The hotel is very quiet and peaceful. We selected a Japanese style room, so had tatami mat floors, low tables, and slept on a futon on the floor. It was quite an experience! Our room had a hot springs tub that opened to the outside. It was wonderful to soak after spending the day walking. Note that the shower also...
