Very nice Yufuin ryokan located at the other end of town from the train/bus station, about a 15 minute walk. Advise using Google maps when walking around, especially after dark. It has both public and three private onsens and options for both breakfast and dinner. We stayed two nights and had the breakfast option. The two breakfasts were both very delicious and completely delicious different. We had dinner at nearby restaurants. The staff were all very helpful and courteous. The hotel was a bit pricey.
This was the first place we stayed after landing in Japan and turned out to be one of the highlights. Very traditional place to stay and Yufuin is a beautiful and peaceful mountain retreat. The hotel was excellent. Our room was very large. Futon beds which were very comfortable. Relaxing private hot spas in a beautiful garden setting and traditional Japanese food. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We arrived almost 2 hours after dinner and they kept the restaurant open and still put on a 7 course spread for us. I highly recommend this as a must stay for a couple of nights.
This was such a fantastic experience. The hotel is extremely nice with an incredibly kind staff and plenty of attentions for the guests: yukatas for women, kimonos for men, japanese socks, welcome gifts, access to the public and private onsen (once in the morning and once in the evening/night). If you like Japanese food, please take the breakfast. It is high quality and delicious, while being really good price. Highly recommended! The staff is so nice, they are really helpful and do respond to emails very fast. Yufuin is a beautiful town, perfect to discover Japan outside of the craziness of big cities like Kyoto or Tokyo. Very happy we found this place.
Great staff, so eager to help. Staff speak enough english -- Miki-san a Filipino waitress is probably the most fluent -- she might be the only non-Japanese on staff. Tanaka-san who seems to run the dining room is super-helpful and speaks english too. Nakashima-san on the front desk was also particularly hospitable and professional. Large rooms mostly set up in Japanese hotel style, but a small raised tatami sitting section near the window. They have their own onsen including a small, private family pool that you can book in advance (no charge). They serve a beautiful Japanese style breakfast. The hotel is well located -- you can walk to restaurants and Yufuin's other attractions.
The staff is very very nice and helpful. Most of the staff can speak English. If you want a private outdoor tub, this is a must place. However, it is expensive and the room is getting old. The Japanese Style room needs renovation.
This hotel is not far from the city center. One of the most impressive was service. It's far beyond expectation. We checked out early in the morning to go to another and I just realized I forget my thing at the hotel when I was at the train station which was about 5 mins to depart. The staff ran to the train station to return my thing! This place was amazing. You should book Onsen once you arrive the hotel. They
Well-situated 15-20 minute walk from the train station, in a very quiet part of the village with nice views of the mountains, and five minute walk from what they call the lake. (It's nice enough but quite small; takes 10 mins to walk around). Large rooms by Japan or any other standards; Western beds or mats. Choice of three outdoor onsens, with free reservation of any two; one in afternoon, one the next morning. All of them are quite small, not much bigger than a bathtub, but they are private and entirely adequate; surrounded by small garden of several plants. "Public" bath available anytime without reservation is indoor and less impressive but still adequate. Set dinner last night was among best ever. Apps included spinach with ground tofu; grilled young corn on cob; squid with vinegar miso; sesame soy bean; sushi dish with lumberjack, tuna, sweet shrimp; seafood hot pot with garlic butter and shrimp, scallop, japanese mushroom and zucchini; lobster salad; beef sukiyaka with the orangest raw egg for optional dipping; marinated veggies; rice and miso soup; and a terrific tangy sorbet to finish it out. A drink, including a local craft beer, comes with meal; local wine is also served. I'm hungry again just thinking about it.l . Only suggestion is that they tell you when they think the room will be ready. When I arrived in mid-morning they said check was at 3pm, so I left. When I returned at 1:30 they said the room was ready. That was great and perhaps I should have inquired further in the morning instead of assuming I didn't have to wait to 3. Anyhow, a small thing compared to the overall experience, and the very helpful front desk in all other respects.…
I really like to commend the staff at Yawaragi-no-Sato Yadoya, it is they who made the difference to the whole stay; and my whole family can attest to that. Actually, it is not full credit to all the staff at Yawaragi,by naming just a few persons; since we did managed to get their names. THANK YOU Tokumuru and Nagomori (at our meals) and the gentlemen at the reception who spoke very good English. We cannot thank you enough for the great time we had with you. There is nothing to dislike or even fault, but a few pointers for improvement. Unfortunately we were stuck very bad traffic and arrived much later than expected, hence we had to contact the Ryokan. Suggestion because of today's technology for Yawaragi to have a LINE or WhatsApp contact number so that there is no need to incur international charges for those of us who have data. In the similar context, providing the drivers with the MAP CODE would be useful, as the Japanese navigation system functions on MAPCODES (of course, you can also key in the phone number). The other thing, which I had already informed the Ryokan, is that they may have to re-consider their system for booking the private onsen.…
We loved our stay here. From the moment we arrived the amazing staff catered to our every need with grace, efficiency & kindness. We stayed in a tatami room which was huge for just 2 of us & very comfortable, it also gave us the choice of sleeping in a bed or on a futon on the tatami. They provide you with everything you need to enjoy the onsen. The private onsens were just heavenly. Breakfast was delicious & we also had their sukiyaki dinner one night which was a highlight of our trip to Japan. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Thank you for a wonderful stay & travel experience we will never forget.
We stayed there for two nights. We booked a deluxe twin room, which was spacious and clean. They sent us an email about a week before confirming our arrival time, dinner time for the first night and offering to book us in a private onsen. I’m surprised as it’s the first time we could enjoy private onsen for free. Excellent staff with smiles on their faces all the time. Delicious dinner. We are very happy that we made the right choice staying in this ryokan.
