I stayed for one night in a corner suite that had a private onsen bathtub that could have fit two people in it. The room itself was quite nice, comfortable heating despite the cold December weather outside, hot water in the shower next to the onsen bathtub, comfortable bedding and the wifi worked. Water was not provided in the room, but could be obtained in small glasses elsewhere in the hotel (hotel staff recommended the tap water, which could also be boiled in the in-room hot water kettle). The hotel itself shows its age. There's a small game room with arcade games from the 1990s for families with kids as well as some souvenir shops. I did not even try the restaurant for breakfast or dinner as the additional price seemed high for the already expensive onsen suite. I did not try the public onsen baths as I had my own in-room. Yukata robes are provided by the hotel for guests. Staff was very helpful, although English was limited. In my opinion, the experience will give guests a taste of what 1980s heyday Japan hotel life was like. Even off-peak season, the private suite was quite expensive, in my opinion. 4/5 stars.…
Stayed with my family during new year holiday. We have traveled lot but the food quality is beyond imagination. Meat was not able to chew.my 4yr old son eats everything literally, he refused to eat. If you like to enjoy eating food, I recommend you stay away from this place.
The location is good. The room is well decorated but the problem is the service is poor. We requested a room for someone with a disability but the lady who assisted gave us a Futon type one which my boyfriend cannot move easily. Good thing the staff who escorted us to our room saw how difficult it was and she requested the front desk to change our room with a bed. If you’re thinking to stay in this place be sure to bring your own toiletries. And maybe some water, for they don’t provide even a bottle of it. And one more thing, check the tea pots before using it, for the one in our room wasn’t even washed. If you’re Japanese is limited, don’t ever use their room service or you will end up eating a small fish for dinner. Picture number 4, was the first room they gave us!
The hotel, though old and dated, offered a comfortable stay for me and my husband. The room was clean and nice. There are standard yutaka too. The housekeeping staff will prepare the futons when you are out for dinner and will keep the futons when you go out for breakfast. There are hotel rooms with private baths too. The food is ok/average. The restaurant where we had our breakfast offers a beautiful view of the Kinugawa River. They do have a small shop where you can buy souvenirs. The hotel staff (except for the concierge) are generally quite old but they are very hardworking. I do admire them for that. While the hotel has a public onsen, they do offer private onsen at a cost of 3,500+ yen for 50 minutes (located around 300m away from the hotel) and have different therapeutic effects. The private onsen garden is quite charming at night. We saw many locals as well as tour groups in the hotel which I presume is value-for-money. …
This is definitely an older hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised with the suite - which I would say is definitely worth splurging for as the suites are each equipped with their own private bath. Separate shower. Huge walk in wardrobe. Massage chair. Dining and living area. The private bath in the suite was Definitely much appreciated by shy foreigners like myself, still not used to bathing in public. The kaiseiki dinner we enjoyed here again was very traditional, so it came as no surprise that this hotel had only local guests. The hotel staffs grasp of English is not great. But they are sincere and try very hard to accommodate. Breakfast again isn't the best, but is very old school, like the hotel. The meal was tasty and satisfying though. Do remember that in Japan, you need to make sure you book a non smoking room if that is your preference. Our local Japanese friends enjoyed the public onsen which they said was very refreshing! A taste of old school, Japanese luxury. …
We booked the room called "Sui" with private bath in the room and in-room dining, and another complementary private bath for an hour. It costed us like 22,000 yen which is surprisingly cheap in Japan considering the said condition. The volume of dinner was massive and ok taste, but no local ingredients (mostly seafood while this area is not facing to the ocean). The cleanness with this Ryokan seemed a bit issue; there were some hairs in the bath tub in our room which were none of ours for sure. Also at the breakfast when I took some tea, there was a small insect came from the tea pot. If they improve these points I would recommend this Ryokan as super cost effective.
We stayed in this hotel last week as the guest of our Japanese friends. The hotel looks worn on the outside, but was a real treat on the inside. Our Japanese room was very spacious and included a private onzen, a special romantic touch! They provided slippers, a Yukata (with instructions on how to wear it) and encouragement to wear the Yukata and slippers anywhere you are on the hotel property. Many of course wear theirs to the public onzen in the hotel as well as to the very good hotel restaurant. The dinner appetizer buffet was all interesting to me and breakfast was both Japanese and Western Buffets. This property is moderately priced, offered all needed amenities including soaps, shampoos, and hair dryer. The kitchen offered a tea set with different types of loose tea and tea cups and the staff could not have been more polite. A genuine Japanese experience that we will cherish for years to come!…
The Japanese-style room was spacious and beautiful. They even included a whole tea set and hot water, along with lose-leaf green tea. There is a small sitting area near the window, which had a great view of the river. The futons were comfortable, and the hot spring baths were a great way to unwind.
I have visited Japan more than 20 times and almost everytimes would have stayed at different hotels due to the fully booked situation in some hotels where I used to stay, so this is my first time at this hotel and I will say that if it is not paid for by someone else, I would not pay to stay here definitely. When we arrived, there was a guest service staff went out to greet us but that was all she did. We came as a group this time and had quite many luggages but it turned out that we all had to help ourselves with the luggages to lobby and to rooms and all this time, that staff just kept bowing at us and did nothing else! Ok! What a service! Very impressed! Luckily I went to onzen, so I had my proper clean-up there but my cousin stayed in room and found that there was no amenity in the bathroom at all, not even one single bottle of shower gel or shampoo. So, she was kinda run around and ask around if anybody happened to have with them some shower gel, and luckily someone did. Their onzen, or so called public bath, was also very small if compared to other hotels nearby and very crowded at the time we visited. Usually we would spend time at the onzen as much as possible to enjoy the view and service but this time, we all had to rush out as there were more than 20 guests inside when the outside hot bath pool was as small as 2-3 sq.m. Also, we could notice that it was so dirty and seemed no one cleaned it properly at any time. Dinner served and Breakfast served were average and edible. They have 2 types of breakfast for you to choose, either Japanese or Western or you can also have both from buffet. So, overall, the hotel was despite safe but not comfortable and not clean. So if you can afford to pay a bit more, would recommend some other nearby hotels like either Kukuna or best at the Kozantei, you would be happier.…
One of the worst customer service experiences I've had in any country. Rooms and facilities are old, and this place is reallllly expensive. For a region populated almost solely by hotels I can't believe how badly these guys treat their guests.
