If you feel ready to spend a couple of days in a authentic Onsen in the Kobe/Osaka area, then Arima is the place. We have chosen the Kinzan hotel following the recommendation in the Japanese website called "japanican" The hotel is closed to the train station and to the bus station. So very convenient. Also it is 5 minutes walking... More

From the minute you walk through the gate at the Hotel Kinzan, you know you are somewhere different. The service is smooth and professional without being pretentious and immediately provides the weary traveler a calm, relaxing environment. The hotel is Traditional, yet modern, is sublime but refreshing. You'd think the juxtaposition of these would cause a grinding conflict, but they... More

How extraordinary is that. The Arima Grand Hotel is #1 on TA, however if you want a more boutique Ryokan experience, with Michelin star quality food, then Kinzan is a better choice.
