Hotel Paipunokemuri Plus
Reviewed May 28, 2012

If you are in Hakone to take the cable car and rope way to visit volcanic activity and take the ship on the lake for fantastic view, the location of hotel is excellent with just being next to the station. Just be ware that hotel is in Gora and there are absolutely nothing outside for night activities.

Breakfast and dinner were excellent.

Rooms are very simple and small and bathroom smells a bit. But no complain since the offer we had was very reasonable in comparison to service and quality we received. We will probably use this hotel again.

One good thing is that you can borrow private hot spring with rather little cost.

But bear in mind, if you are not Japanese and Japanese do not follow you, this hotel is not for you because staff do not speak English at all.

Pros: (1) Location just diagonally across Gora Train Station if this is what you need
(2) Typical System-Bath & Toilet available in room; small but convenient
(3) Chartered Bath available, but would require ¥480 for 30 minutes

Cons: (1) Stayed in early-November; weather still not cold enough but air-conditioning has been adjusted to heater-only; very uncomfortable
(2) With the location, you hear every train coming & going, along with train signals a few times every hour late into the night and from early-dawn; not much opportunity to sleep
(3) Bed is literally hard as rock, a little extreme even for one who does like firm mattress
(4) Room and building is not sound-proof, so you would be hearing sounds and voices very clearly from the corridor and neighbors
(5) Shower pressure relatively weak
(6) Food is average; edible but disappointing compared to typical Japanese standards

Recommendation: Price may appear relatively cheaper compared to other hotels on the grossly-overpriced Hakone area, but it's definitely not value-for-money. Go elsewhere if you can afford it, and even if you can't, make sure you are prepared to tolerate the inconveniences.
