We visited here in a group of 4 with 2 seniors among us. To better take care of the seniors (as they don't understand Japanese and are not fluent in English), we have booked a big room with private bath so that we could stay in the same room for the night. The environment of the premises is great and we got a good view from our room (facing the mountain). The staff are nice and helpful. No need to worry if you don't speak Japanese, the staff at the front desk are fluent in English! We had our dinner and breakfast in our room. The food are so delicious that we can't stop eating even we are already full. The onsen is very good too. We, the younger couple, have booked the private bath at 2/F (which you could use for 40 mins) while the seniors could use the private bath in our room. Both are very relaxing!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you front desk staffs from Gekkoen, when I have communication problem with the local car rental company during my stay at Arima, they did help me a lots with their effort and patient. I will say Gekkoen Koeokan is wonderful you must visit at least once, food is good of course and you will feel easy breezy at the comfortable environment surrounding by nature beauty, staffs are helpful and make you delight during you stay!

I thought I left my iPhone in the room and called and emailed the hotel to inquire the evening after I checked out. They replied that nothing was found. However, after 2 weeks the hotel contacted me through email and told me they found a phone! I guess they must have found it during big cleaning. Anyways, they asked for my address in Hong Kong, and mailed it back to me without any charges (I offered it). All my friends are amazed about my luck and the superb customer service of the hotel. During our stay, the arrangement was also fantastic. On arrival, we were greeted at the entrance the moment we showed up. And they reserved the same table at the restaurant for our breakfast next morning when we finished our dinner. We had a 10-course dinner and the quality was great! The hotel has 3 Onsens and we love the one at the main building most because both the indoor and outdoor hotsprings are spacious. They have staggered opening hours so there’s always at least one Onsen open during our stay. I’d definitely come back to this hotel on my next visit to Arima Onsen!

A night at a ryokan is worth splashing on for any trip to Japan. Despite its steep price tag I thoroughly enjoyed my night here. The food was truly wonderful dinner and breakfast(really it looked like lunch. Photo below) and the onsen relaxing as ever (except for the occasional man strutting along while attempting to exert his dominance by talking, grunting loudly and splashing the whole place around which I thoroughly enjoyed). Free flowing beer on the first floor to the left really hit the sweet spot

This was the place we stayed in for our two visits to Arima Onsen area. Exquisite food, good service and clean rooms at a reasonable price. Three onsens to dip into and they were all nice. We happened to find a free cooking class in the lobby after dinner too. The souvenir shop sold gift boxes cheaper than the Arima streets outside.
