We booked the room with onsen inside, really comfortable. We got our own massage chair in the room. And there’s this beauty machine with spa function for your face. I enjoyed using this. The amenities are cool (including the l’occitane set). The direct view to kinugawa (the river) is so pretty. There’s haagen dazs ice cream at the dinner buffett (yummy). The yukata provided in this room is so pretty too. The bed & the futon are comfortable. The design of the room is super nice. Plus we got 2 tvs in our room. The staffs are so nice. There’s a game center at the lower floor, there’s a billiard pool too, the public onsens are available at lower floor & upper floor. We got the chance to enjoy the matcha (in the VIP lounge) directly made by the staff when we visited. The design of the hallway to their lounge is so cool too. Overall, I’m satisfied. Keep up the good work👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

The hotel is huge with 2 towers. The Japanese style room is spacious and super comfortable. The toilet seat lifts automatically when near and has a night light. The on balcony Onsen pool is v convenient (my mom loves it.) but the public ones are wonderful as well. The hotel comes w/ free parking and allows us to park close to the lobby as my mom uses wheelchair. I highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for 4 days at the end of a Japan tour. If your on your own with no transport, just be aware you are a train, bus or taxi ride from everything . The hotel food, rooms and staff are excellent. Onsens, well the best we have ever used. All in all top notch. The central atrium and organ music are I our opinion great. Some think not. Certainly makes for a most memorable stay .

Wonderful experience with beautiful Japanese style room and bathroom fitted with running hot spring bathtub. They are also having two public hot spring pool, one in open area on 13th floor. We had private Japanese dinner and food was amazing..stayed for only one night but it will be remember for long...

The first thing you need to know about this hotel is that it is not in or even near any of Nikko’s celebrity sites but a half hour drive to the north in the Kinugawa onsen district. Kinugawa’s salad days as a hot springs resort are long gone and whilst the Kinugawa River gorge provides a dramatic centrepiece, many of the tawdry developments that crowd its precipitous banks are either derelict or gracelessly heading that way. Amid this architectural atrophy the Asaya Hotel stands like a stately citadel of opulence in exile. To be sure, it’s all a bit last century, starting with the stadium-size porte cochère leading off to a grand operatic atrium complete with pipe organ and Charlie & the Chocolate Factory glass elevators, but cutting past the cruise-liner glitz this is a well maintained, well managed, comfortable and good value hotel. There are a few shortcomings that deprive it of excellence, but if you don’t mind the commute to Nikko you would be hard pressed to better what the tariff buys you here. The good: the front door staff were ever helpful and efficient. Reception was polite and informative with passable English which follows throughout the hotel. Our non-smoking Hachibankan Japanese Style Room with twin beds (#601) was bright, clean, quiet, comfortable and very spacious – indeed the size of a modest suite (57 sq. metres). Everything expected was there and it mostly worked as expected. The décor is a tastefully modern iteration of traditional Japanese furnished with a few Western comforts – like sofas and proper beds. Which beds were refreshingly comforting after a few weeks of futons. The bathroom ensemble was modern, roomy, well laid out and well finished in the best Japanese tradition. The included WiFi worked well on all our devices. Our room/suite opened to a balcony overlooking the river gorge but, for reasons already expounded, soft focus needs to be engaged there so the better views are within. We opted for the breakfast and dinner package both of which are taken in the hotel’s expansive Asaya Garden restaurant. Both are buffet meals which were well serviced and of the finest quality. The not so good: in such a superior bathroom suite it was disappointing that the shower head was tiny and the water pressure anaemic. The disappointing: it’s held to be a traveller’s hotel but there is neither a laundry nor any laundry service offered. When asked, the hotel will steer you to a local laundromat a couple of kilometres away.
