Stayed here in Janaury and I enjoyed every minute of the stay. The original 1935 architecture has been well maintained and preserved. Once you step into the main lobby, you feel as if you are in a time machine spinning back to the pre-war days. The main dining room is grandeur and spacious, surrounded by Belgium tapestries. Chef's 6-course dinner...

We didn't stay at Unzen Kanko Hotel (but we will, next time), we just went for afternoon tea ... The service was very polite and the staff didn't seem to mind we weren't staying. The menu was in English and Japanese and the staff were very helpful, in explaining everything. The baked gorgonzola cheesecake was their specialty and was excellent....

We stayed for 2 nights, unfortunately on the secon day the weather was bad, so we made an excursion to the mount unzen disaster memorial hall and Shimabara castle. The hotel - even for two Swiss - was remarkably in its architectural "Chalet-style". The staff extremely friendly and attentif. Highly recommendable. René & Co

Stayed at this hotel for 1 night in December. Getting up to the hotel is about a 30~40 min ride up the mountain from the city but well worth the ride. We drove here by a rented car but there seems to be a public bus you can take from the city. At night, it can get pretty dark so...

We stayed one night. This is an old style European hotel which is unusual in Japan. The hotel is pleasant, with a nostalgia of days gone by, with a billiard room and an old library. The room is of good size, with decent toiletries. The French dinner was good, though it cannot be called truly French. This lack of identity...

約20年ぶりに伺いました。館内は丁寧にリフォームされている一方で、とても温かく接して頂き、快適に過ごすことができました。メイン・ダイニングでの夕食は、以前よりもずっと美味しくなっているように感じました。地元の食材を繊細に調理される山本料理長の腕前には脱帽。夕食も朝食も大変美味しく頂きました。ワインも厳選されています。海外からの来客も感銘を受けていました。次回は是非、長期滞在をしたいと思います。 Unzen Kanko Hotel is probably the best classic hotel in Japan. Opened in 1935 in the first national park, this place has been our favorite family vacation destination. Rooms became more comfortable after the renovation, but the charm of this hotel is unchanged.

The building is a stunning example of Japanese-European style which reflects the history of Nagasaki. There is no lift, so it is not recommended for elderly or disabled guests. The room was tiny but pleasantly furnished. Throughout the building, the old Bar, Library, Billiard Room and even the Smoking Room are of some interest. However, we were dismayed to find...

My husband was the C.O. on the Naval Base in Sasebo Japan. We are American and were so fortunate to spent our Honeymoon at Unzen Kanko Hotel 33 years ago. It was fabulous then and I'm sure it is even more fantastic now! We would love to revisit again some day.
