After a delay in being picked up from the station everything else was wonderful and efficient. We (3 adults and one baby) stayed on the top floor of the west wing for one night with a private bath on the balcony and amazing views.

We stayed for two nights at Arima Onsen during hot July. We called the hotel when we arrived at the train station and then we went to Lawson to get some drinks, when we came out the hotel van was already waiting for us. We learned that the hotel is only 5-10 minute walk from the station but then when... More

We booked a one-night stay in a Japanese Futon room in the West building directly with the hotel, requested for a quiet room and were given a corner room on the second highest floor with beautiful sweeping views of Arima. Complimentary pickup from the train station is provided but we were happy to lug our luggage up the steep hillside... More

I know this hotel from forum on the internet. I think the hotel was very nice. It's not a 5 starred-hotel but the service and hotel facilities are all over expectation. Breakfast and dinner set are so good, we picked Japanese style.

Stayed at the south building. My package included private hotspring for 50 minutes and buffet dinner/breakfast. After booking online, the ryokan emailed me to check my preferred time for private hotspring and they arranged a non-smoking room as per my request.

The room is Japanese style, very elegant and comfortable. They offered bathrobe or, in Japanese, yukata. And the hot spring in the hotel is really good and special which has three colors. And you can relish yourself in some massage afterward. We all enjoyed our stay in the hotel. Highly recommend!
