Gives a feel of heritage hotel. Located at a very peaceful place, close to nature,still at walkable distance to the World Heritage sites,like Nikko Shrine and Sacred Bridge. Due to autumn season nature was at its best. Hotel also had Hot Spring Spa. Rooms had traditional Japanese decor with Khatami mats. We enjoyed authentic Japanese food. Hotel had small souvenir shop. I enjoyed my stay to the fullest.This was my official trip but I would love to go with my family once again.
My husband and I stayed for two nights at Ryokan Hotel Kosho in Nikko. Our reviews are; Hotel condition: quite old and would definitely be improved by some paint and update. Very good location as you can walk down to all the shrines, temples and the city within 10-15 minutes. Old, but clean. Nice onsen (lady and men separated). Service: excellent! They picked us up at the train station and drove us back to catch the train. Very sweet people. We had breakfast and dinner served at the hotel which were served punctually at the time requested. Food: highly recommended and very delicious. Very japanese style, excellent taste and I can only recommed it. Overall: if you can live with the apperance of the hotel which is quite old and shabby, then I would recommend it. Especially if you use the onsen, have the breakfast and dinner. All that sums up quite positive.…
hotel in bad condition, we were almost only guests which was a little bit spooky. room was outworn (dirty wallpaper and carpet). Onzen was okay, but outside onzen was a little bit unkept. Food was very good (served in different room). Staff was mostly very friendly (except guy at reception - but able to speak English)
This Hotel-style modern Ryokan in Nikko was a good value. The food was really wonderful and the staff were very friendly, helpful, just great. The location is very convenient for walking to the World Heritage area and fairly quiet, but unless you know Nikko very well, take a taxi there as advised! We made reservations through japaneseguesthouses.com (I highly recommend that site for ryokan reservations, as many do not have their own websites), and it was all but deserted due to being the slow time of year...which was really nice. This ryokan is pretty obviously set up to handle many, many people at the height of travel for leaf-viewing season, for example. It was one of the few in this price range that allowed a "breakfast only" option for one night (very nice since we were arriving late from Tokyo). The breakfasts were substantial, served in their dining area on a long communal table. They have your place waiting for you, and the two cooks who help, hover, answer questions, and serve you endless tea were very cute grandmother-types. Dinner was at a set time, and served in another hotel room -- they came and retrieved you from your room. It was amazing, probably 20 different things, some I'd never seen/tasted before (and I've traveled in Japan many times). The onzen (public baths) were gender-separated, and both had washing/soaking facilities to serve easily a dozen people at a time, dry saunas, and both inside and outside soaking pools. The soaking water was easily hot enough, and everything was very very clean and comfortable. The onzen area is in a separate building and a bit of an adventure to find the first time (as it was deserted so I could not just "follow someone else"), but was quite nice. There is a small game-room en route to the onzen, with table-tennis, a pinball machine. The room itself was a bit shabby feeling; not unclean, not problemmatic, just various things seeming a bit old, maybe slightly torn/stained. The worst feature was the single over-head flourescent light. The heating unit was powerful, the futon and comforters nice, there was an extra foam pad available, the tatami were nice and clean, and the wide adjacent sitting room with sliding doors were nice for fresh air. As we checked out, they were very willing to bring us to the train station (we left baggage in the lockers there and took the bus to the Chuzenji area -- highly recommended! -- before returning to Tokyo that night). I believe they'd retrieve you from the station as well. The cooks spoke no English, the front desk staff spoke a little; enough for basic check-in, check-out, query about dinner time, etc. There was a mix of westerners and japanese staying there, families and businessmen. Overall I would definitely stay there again.…
