Located at the famous Dogo onsen area, and is a convenient 10-minute walk to the local markets, which sells foodstuff, local produce and many touristy knick-knacks. The room is huge with a nice balcony and comes with traditional Japanese tatami. It has fantastic and thoughtful bath facilities. Keiseki dinner provided by the hotel is good. Onsen in the hotel is towards the small side but at least it is not crowded. If you are going to the original Dogo onsen (which is just down the street), you'd need to pay to get in. It is what they call the "divine pool" but with horde of people dipping in it. Wifi is only available in the lobby but connection speed is good. Service is typical of Japanese high standard in hospitality. Highly recommended.

My family stayed in this hotel for a night. The hotel is close to the major tourist attractions including the Dogo main onsen house and the Dogo park. The reception staff could command good Chinese and English and clearly introduced the hotel and room to us. The hotel structure seemed to be an interesting mixture of classic western and Japanese styles. However the room was in traditional Japanese style, and was spacious and typically clean. Sound-proof of the room was perfect, as nothing was heard from street and other residents (even many of them came with their children). The free drum show at 9pm in the hotel lobby was really impressive and should not be missed, though all the descriptions were in Japanese only. Seat reservation was not required but people began to show up and occupy the seats in the lobby after 8:30pm. The staff were very helpful and professional. They measured and provided fit yukata to my children (aged 5 and aged 3). My room rate included a buffet dinner and breakfast, and both were outstanding. There were numerous choices of delicious and fresh dishes. The futons were nicely set in my room during my dinner time. The bathroom did not offer onsen water, and I used the onsen on second floor instead. I was totally satisfied. The hotel may not be a very luxurious one, but I think that the room offer is really value for money, and the professional service is appreciated. This hotel is definitely recommended.

Love this traditional Japanese hotel a lot. It is old but well maintained, close to the town center with good options of shopping for souvenirs and snacks around. The rooms are unusually spacious, it is clean with good facilities. The free drum performance in the evening was impressive. I have to take this opportunity to thank the hotel staff, particularly a Chinese speaking young lady, who assisted me with my eye injury. The hotel staff brought me to an eye clinic in a private car and a Chinese staff accompanied me all the way doing translation/interpretation work. I truly enjoyed the stay there and would recommend anyone looking for a warm stay in Dogo Onsen to consider staying there!

Old style hotel ryokan. Great service and big room but cant open windows much for fresh air. Disappointing baths. Japanese dinner unusually disappointing for this type of hotel class. Wifi has to be requested but they helped sort out a router problem. Great breakfast buffet, however, which made us wonder if we should have broken our Japanese travel rule and opted for the dinner buffet the night before. Walk around town centre was limited but better than a lot of onsen towns which are shameless tourist traps with little to offer.

Stayed in the main building. Room was spacious - lots of room to move around even when the futons were laid down We only visited the onsen in the main building. Staff very helpful with suggestions of places to visit. There was a Taiko Drum performance which was a bonus - very entertaining We took up the meal plan which included dinner and breakfast at the restaurant. Both meals were buffet style - plenty of choice. Overall, good, comfortable hotel near to the shopping area.
