We stayed in the Japanese style room with low beds with a half board. The room was spacious and clean. They have a bunch of travel sized toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush & paste, face wash, body wash & cloth, makeup remover, hair brush) available for free as well as Yukata. The Onsen was nice and big. Both dinner and breakfast were delicious too. Lots of local ingredients. Reasonably priced for the traditional Ryokan-style meals (meals are not served in the room). Very convenient to Magome. 5 mins walk to the bus station (Nakagiri), and from there it’s only 10 mins bus ride to Magome. Also very close to the highway bus station at Kamisaka PA. There’s no convenient store in the walkable distance, so you may feel a little isolated if you don’t have a car, but just enjoy the Onsen and the sound of the river. The hotel offers free shuttle to/from Nakatsugawa, and there’s a bunch of shops, restaurants and supermarkets there. Just remember that businesses close rather early in the country side. There are enough signs and translation in English, but the staff didn’t seem to speak English much.

I am torn about this hotel. The location is incredible and very convenient for doing the old postal route hike. The shuttle bus to and from the train station is also a bonus. It runs hourly. But for the price it’s hard to get past how outdated the hotel is, at l ast for Westerners. The onsen is definitely a plus but all the rules take away from feeling very relaxed. The dinner and breakfast came with the price when we booked through hotels.com and my husband and I were glad we gave it try but truly, unless you are a huge fan of traditional Japanese cuisine, you won’t find much of it to suite your palette. The presentation is beautiful and the service is great but we ended up passing on both dinner and breakfast the second day. There is an adjoining resort area where you can dine and there were options like Udon and Tempura that were pretty good and affordable.

The website pictures are misleading - this is a simple hotel definitely a 3 star hotel not 4 star. Staff lovely although limited facilities. We were quite comfortable there although were a little disappointed at first as we were expecting more.

On the positive side, the location is great to visit Magome, access to the public bath is included in the price. Japanese breakfast (but no other option available!) is interesting. On the negative side, beware, some room do not have a private bathroom. We luckily could change for one with a private bathroom. The administration is not family/kids friendly. They refused to provide bed sheets for a baby to sleep on one of the available futon, unless you were willing to pay the price of an extra adult stay. We selected this hotel in part for the access to the public pool complex, but apparently it is only open on weekends! The whole complex is a bit outdated and rooms relatively expensive for the total package. I would definitely not recommend.

Our travel agent needed to change our accommodation from Tsumago as the roykan we were to stay in was fully booked for our dates. They recommended Hotel Hanasarasa as an alternative. From Nakatsugawa Station we caught the free shuttle, checked in to our Japanese room and went for a walk along the river. The hotel is certainly older - the area around the hotel and river could really do with a tidy up, overgrown vegetation, uneven paths. Maintenance of the hotel could do with a bit of a clean of the exterior. Seeing a large fridge/ freezer unit by the entrance way is also a little offputting. I used the onsen at the hotel the first night in their basement, but the neighbouring Kur Resort next door onsens were a lot newer and cleaner, and certainly more patronised. We took a taxi from the hotel to Magome the next day and walked to Nagiso station, making numerous stops along the way. The English signs from Tsumago to Nagiso were not as clear as between Magome to Tsumago, however it was a wonderful walk, with the walk being one of the highlights of our trip. We caught the train back to Nakatsugawa, and the shuttle bus back to hotel. Our travel agent had booked us for both breakfasts and dinners at the Hotel. The food was delicious, and served in the dining rooms within the hotel on the ground floor. Our room on the 3rd floor had a little balcony with 2 chairs and a table. Staying two nights allowed us to walk from Magome to Nagiso at our leisurely pace and not feel rushed to complete by a certain time. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and as mentioned the food was delicious. On reflection, I would suggest that the onsen facilities at the hotel are not used, and go direct to the Kur resort (which you are given a voucher to use - access from Level 2 of hotel).
