Definitely one of the top in Japan may be also in the world. This place is gorgeous, in all of terms. Hospitality, room, food, cafe, view, amenities, features.... A place where a celebrity is not a surprise to find. Whatever. You have a lot of thing to enjoy and tell more than tweeting you saw a celeb. Another point is... More

This is my first ever and last review of a hotel but we felt so strongly about our bad experience that we just had to share our thoughts. We are a family of four with 2 children. Our previous visit to Gora Kadan was in May 2015. This was our 5th time return to Gora Kadan for a 2 night... More

A different beat here. We were very well received by Yumi, our host for the entire stay. She was the highlight of our stay. Great teaching the kids some japanese and always appropriate with the service ( she did not try too much to be friendly - yet she was very approachable and professional) We had the Aoi room which...

Gora Kadan Ryokan, was one of the finest experiences we have had in all our travels. Unbelievable service, a most beautiful villa with an indoor and outdoor hot mineral bath. The Spa is set in exquisite gardens. Incredible, superbly presented dinner served in our room, authentic Japanese style that really impressed us. The staff went out of their way to... More

Our family spent two nights at this amazing property. There were 7 of us and we occupied a large suite and two other rooms. We were making a pit stop between Tokyo and Kyoto and wanted to find a place to just chill. Gora Kadan was just the ticket. In terms of service, attention to detail, quality of food, and... More

Our experience in Japan was like Goldi-locks. We stayed at Hiiragiya (too old), Hoshinoya (too modern), and then last we went to Gora Kadan, which was the perfect blend of traditional rooms and architecture with absolute perfection of service, bedding, food, etc. I would return to Gora Kadan any day, except that we live in New York and its a...

We were so happy in this ryokan! The manageress spoke good English. Most of the staff do. They are very attentive to the minutest detail. Took and presented us with a photo before we headed for dinner. Very nice touches throughout our stay! We stayed in the Kadan Suite plus other private bath rooms. Very friendly and well trained staff.

We had a once in a lifetime experience at this upscale traditional Japanese hotel. The sensory experience immersion enhances the experience including the custom to wear hotel provided Yukatas during our stay. Additionally, the natural hot springs which were both outdoors and indoors were phenomenal. The food was tremendous. A must if you are visiting Japan.

We stayed here for two nights, first night in a Kadan suite and second night in a "Standard A" room. Both rooms were terrific but if you can afford it, would definitely recommend going for one of the suites- it is well worth the extra cost. We made our own way from Tokyo doing ad hoc shopping/sightseeing on the way... More

This was a great ryokan with fantastic service and modern amenities. As soon as you arrive, they assign you a "manager" who makes sure you have everything you need. He even drove us to a restaurant the day we were leaving and spoke to the owner to make sure we would be done on time. Highly recommend it!
