We recently spent a couple of nights here, fresh of the plane from Australia. The service was fantastic. We were able to check in early, and because was raining upon checkout the concierge dropped us at the train station. The location was great (easy walking distance to many points of interest), and there's a bus from the airport to the... More

We stayed in this Hotel three years ago, and returned this time, for the impression at that time was good. There were two floors as designated as a non-smoking floor. I think that in all other rooms, smoking is allowed. If you want to avoid the adverse effect of smoking, you should select a room on the 6th and 7th... More

If you can afford to stay here, Funaya will definitely deliver on the traditional ryokan experience for you. A lot of other reviewers say that this place is old/aging, however it does not purport to be a hotel - it is a ryokan, so you won't have the modern getup and same experience as your Park Hyatt or whatever.

We booked a night at Funaya to enjoy a bath in famous Dogo Onsen (really crowded) but we ended up having our onsen in the hotel itself, more private and really lovely and relaxing. The ryokan is perfectly located to walk around in Dogo Onsen and has its own onsen (indoor and outdoor), as well as a tiny nice japanese... More

We had a large room with twin beds and a large living/tatami area and a balcony. The room overlooked a landscape garden and was quiet. However, the furniture in the room was a bit old fashioned. The bath room was clean but a bit small. The wifi connection inside the room was very weak. Fortunately we had brought our own... More

This famous Ryokan has been around for 200 years and is showing now some wear and tear more of which later. We had a combination of Japanese and Western style room meaning there were two beds (big) but there was also a tatami room with Tokonoma. Nice touch. Not so nice was that both the desk chair and the tatami... More

We chose to stay at Funaya mainly due to its location. It is only 5 minutes away from the Dogo Onsen area, which is one of the key tourist attractions in Matsuyama. While the hotel is quite dated, it was in decent shape and clean. Our room was incredibly spacious (especially when compared to our cramped night staying in Kochi),... More

My wife and I chose Funaya at Dogo Onsen for it's close proximity to Dogo Onsen Station. It is truly just a few minutes walk. We arrived unexpectedly late into Matsuyama Station, so opted for a taxi instead. The cost was less than 1000 yen. When we arrived, we were immediately greeted at the door and our luggage was taken... More

I stayed probably close to a hundred onsen hotels in Japan over the years and Funaya is probably the worst I have ever stayed. Funaya ranked not bad in tripadvisor and has a website that is rather misleading. I must hate myself for believing the content of the website. The layout and furnishing of lobby reflects that it is not... More

Lovely room. Excellent service. Food - both dinner and breakfast was absolutely delicious - served in the room. Bit disappointed with the onsen - it was very rowdy in the evening but I suppose it is a bath! Onsens were swapped in the morning and it was much more peaceful.
