In some ways this hotel is like a best Western motel. And otherwise the service is extremely nice and the lobby and dining rooms are very pleasant to sit in and eat at. Our room has charm and looks like a Frank Lloyd Wright inspiration but the bathroom is decaying and the red rug is kind of gross. Still, there... More

My wife and I travelled here in April 2016. We were greeted by an elderly gentleman who ushered us inside and helped us check in early. My wife was feeling a little under the weather - when the staff learned this, they organised to give her some medicine, and showed genuine care about her condition, offering to take her to... More

With photos of famous guest from around the world adorning the walls, an ideal mountain top location, and a fabulous French-Japanese restaurant, this hotel is a great place for a couples get-away, a sightseeing base camp, or a family vacation. While the hotel furnishings are dated, this is part of the charm that sweeps you back in time at this... More

Good location, extended obviously several times, trying to mantain the original style. Our room was in an annexe, so not so stylish. But the common rooms are charming, with a lot of room to relax and sip some tea (gratis) in the evening. Very attentive doorman, very beautifully served and extensive English breakfast. Dinner is quite expensive. Offer patisseries AM/... More

This is the oldest hotel in Japan that was built at more than 100 years ago. I heard historical stories about this hotel from a bell man. It is a nice hotel that the founder's thoughts to the guest still remain to all of the staffs who work here. This was the second time for us to visit there.

Just 7 stops in the local bus will bring you to this original western style hotel in delightful setting. Rooms large and very comfortable. Most rooms in main building that could be seen were twin share, but they also had other style of accommodation. Meals in hotel were silver service and french cuisine.We were lucky it actually snowed while there.... More

Hotel is at a good location, surrounded by restaurants and souvenir shops all at a walking distance. It is a very old and classic hotel but refurbished in many ways. You will have to walk up and down a hill to get to the hotel from the roads unless you are driving. Parking is free for the hotel guests. Upon... More
