This property clean, comfortable and the staff is very friendly. It's a small property and on a quiet side street, but also only a 5 minute walk from the main station so it's great for getting around. We very much recommend it. We were skeptical about the futon beds at first, but we found them to be very comfortable.

Japanese is famous for taking care of small little details and it is in this area that the guesthouse feels very welcoming and comfortable. They provided a walking map (done by themselves) to introduce all the restaurants and interesting places nearby. Bathroom and toilets are very clean, despite being common amenities. There is a laundry. Provide sufficient wifi coverage, for a small guest house. There is a dining and lounge area with wall sockets provided which allows one to charge and use electronic devices comfortably. The futon provided is very comfortable. Had the most amazing sleep. Highly recommended!

Super clean rooms and shared bath/shower rooms. Everything looks brand new or something from a catalog. Very close to the station. They don't have a night curfew like some of the other hostels in the area where they lock you out after a certain time. Overall a nice experience, but nightly pricing is a bit high for what it is considering that you pay just a little bit more for some of the ryokans in the area.

A great place to stay for a couple of days in Yamanashi. It's good to know some Japanese here though, because the lady at the reception did not speak English. It's an easy walk to Kawaguchi Lake and the train/bus station. The room was beautiful, with super snuggly futons, and our window framed Mt. Fuji.

If you're looking for a clean, comfortable, convenient, tatami-style room that's near Kawaguchiko station, then Guest House Orange Cabin should be your first choice. The place was very easy to find and it was about a 5min walk from the train station (which made it also near the bus stops for the sightseeing buses and the highway buses). We got the "Japanese-Style Room 6 Tatami" (Room 201) which was spacious for 2. The room could have probably fit 4 people. There was space for the futons, a small table for our stuff (and for planning our trip), our bags, and a rack for hanging up our clothes. I don't know about the other rooms, but ours only had a small view of Fuji's peak as it peeked above the roofs of the nearby houses (though, since we were going to the lake anyway, getting a view wasn't really that big of a deal). The room had no private bathroom or toilet. We had to use the common shower rooms on the 1st floor and the common wash room and toilets which were just a couple of steps outside of our room. There was also a second set of wash rooms and toilets near the shower area. There were only a few guests that time, so we didn't have any problems with sharing. For food, the place does not serve breakfast and it does not have it's own cafe/restaurant. But you'll need to get something to eat from the nearby "kombinis" (7-11 and Lawson near the train station) or from nearby restaurants (they gave us a map of all the restaurants in the area). If you choose to buy take-out food, the place provides a well-equipped kitchen for preparing your meals. There's a microwave oven, a toaster, a hot water kettle, and even a stove if you want to cook a meal from scratch. You can keep your food in the refrigerator and borrow the utensils in the cabinet. Just make sure to clean-up after yourself. For the bathroom, they don't have an onsen here (so if that's part of your criteria, better stay somewhere else). Instead, they had 3 western-style shower rooms. They're only available on a fixed schedule and you'll have to share with all the other guests (so plan your mornings properly). On toiletries, there was body wash and shampoo already available in the shower area. They also provided towels, toothbrush, and toothpaste. There was also a hair dryer in the wash room. On cleanliness, the place looks like it's been recently renovated so everything still looks/feels/smells clean, shiny, and new. Guests are required to leave their shoes in the rack by the front desk then wear provided slippers when inside the rooms and common areas. So, that's probably going to keep the place clean. Lastly, they have free, stable, strong Wi-Fi, whether you're in the common areas or inside your room.
