Absolutely magical! Once in a lifetime experience and the highlight of our Japan trip! The ryokan is beautiful and we made use of all the private and public onsens ( the one that came with our room category was a special treat!) I have always used my hotel as a “drop my stuff and go” place. This is where you come and stay and like they half joking told us “onsen before dinner, after dinner, and before and after breakfast”. The dinner is served elaborately in beautiful Japanese dishes. Very yummy sparkling sake too! I was hesitant to sleep on the floor due to neck and headache issues but surprisingly it was very comfortable and I slept great ( the air conditioning was amazing too). They have Yucatas to wear around the resort as well as pajamas and the nicest gentlemen by the shoes offered to take my daughter and my photo in the breathtaking garden. They have a service the next day where they take your luggage and send it to the train station in a secure location and they drop you off at the shrine and tori gate lake where you can board the pirate ship and cross over to ride the cable car. Me and my adult children will cherish the memory of our time spent here. highly recommend this ryokan!

We spent two nights in Hakone, first in the Hyatt regency and the second night at this traditional hotel. We opted for a room with private onsen, which was pricey but definitely worth it for us given the privacy it offers. The experience was lovely - we were greeted with tea and sweets in a lovely sitting room, then taken to our room which consisted of a dining room, living room and bedroom. We were given the traditional clothes to wear in our room. After some time of enjoying our onsen, a lovely lady prepared the dinner setup in our private dining room and served a traditional dinner through a good 2 hours or so. Food was very good quality although there were some courses that were not really to our (of course very western!) taste but that was to be expected. Overall a lovely experience and would recommend to anyone wanting to experience this type of stay in a luxurious traditional Japanese setting.

My wife and I spent two nights here and everything about it was perfect. Stayed in room 108 and the private onsen in the room was incredible. There were also shared and a reservable onsen on the property, all of which were lovely. All of the food was exceptional and plentiful. Staying for two nights was perfect as this allowed us to complete the Hakone loop on day #2, then come back to the ryokan to relax and enjoy another wonderful kaiseke dinner.

The bus from Odawara station conveniently drops you off within a 5 min walk of the property.

This was definitely one of the highlights of our 2 week trip in Japan.

I stayed for one night at Yoshimatsu and absolutely loved my time at this beautiful ryokan. The traditional Japanese room was lovely, both the private and communal onsens were great, and the staff and food were exceptional. From the moment I arrived, I was treated with such warmth and hospitality and the traditional kaiseki meal I was served was stunning and delicious. If you are looking for a ryokan experience in Hakone, I highly recommend Yoshimatsu!

Never in all of our travels have I ever experienced such kind and attentive service. In addition the surrounds and quality of food (Kaiseki) are exceptional. Every plate is a work of art, The cherry on top are the amazing views of Mt Fuji. If you are looking for a smaller more personal hotel in Hakone this place has it all. An unforgettable stay!

Staff was friendly. They speak fluent English which wasn't the case everywhere we stayed. The lady that served our meals were sweet and kind and I would give the food a C+. The hotel was smelly. Each article of clothing that was left out of our suitcase absorbed this awful smell (mind you, we only stayed one night; about 18 hours).
Wouldn't return to this place. Definitely was not worth 900$ a night.

My boyfriend and I booked into the Yoshimatsu Ryokan in Hakone for one night on our way from Osaka back to Tokyo. It's a little bit off the beaten track and so we took a taxi from the train station to the Ryokan. As soon as we arrived members of staff came running out to greet us and to take our luggage from the boot of the car. We were too early for check-in and so we left our baggae and began walking through the park, around the banks of Lake Ashi towards Hakone shrine. En route, my boyfriend got down on one knee and proposed to me. We returned to the Ryokan at check-in time and told them what happened. Each and every staff member made a point of congratulating us and they gifted us a free bottle of sparkling wine with our dinner. When we checked in we were brough into a room overlooking the beautiful Japanese gardens for some traditional tea. We were then given a tour of the facilities and shown to our room. Our room was beautiful and spacious with a stunning view of Mount Fuji. We were also given our traditional Japanese yakuta and shown how to wear it. There are 2 onsen options in this Ryokan - a public and a private. The public onsen is separated by gender. Being from Ireland, I was not entirely comfortable getting into an onsen with no swimsuit on with a group of strangers and so we avoided the public onsen entirely. However, the private onsen does not require pre-booking. If the light is on outside it means it is in use but if not, it's first come first served. Every time we went to use the private onsen it was available which was incredible. It is an amazing experience and so soothing for jet lagged muscles. Upon check-in you must let the staff know what time you would like dinner at as it is a 2 hour experience! And what an incredible experience it was. You're served in your own private room by a wonderful server who serves 11 courses in total over 2-2.5 hours. The food is incredible! Every course is something different and delicious, a once in a lifetime experience. Breakfast the next day isn't quite as extensive but is a similar and delicious experience. When check-out time came we really didn't want to leave. It was by far one of the highlights of our 14 day trip and we would return in a heartbeat.

My wife and I stayed here for one night in a room with its own private hot spring. Overall, it's an amazing experience. We checked in at 3pm and didn't leave the ryoken until check out time the next day. Service was top notch. The moment we arrived, we were given tea and some sweets. One of the staff who spoke very good english escorted us around the grounds and showed us our room.

The room:
We got one of the corner rooms on the ground floor. There is a western style toilet, but the shower/bath area is traditional japanese, meaning you take a shower sitting down on a wooden stool. The shower area leads outside to the hot spring. The rooms are decorated traditionally, and the only part of the room that shows its age is the bathroom where the sink is. The counter and sink look like they were from the 80's. Other than that, we have no complaints.

The facilities
As other posters have mentioned, there is a private bath on the grounds that guests can use. There are also two single sex bathing area, which switch gender after dinner so guests can experience both areas which have water from different areas. Each bathing area has an indoor and outdoor hot spring inside. There is also a tranquil zen garden. Outside the two single sex bathing area, there are massage chairs. We used the single sex bathing area which is very nice and tranquil. Even if your room has a hot spring, you have to check out the public bathing area. The room has english instructions on the proper etiquette for using the public baths.

The Food
I think Yoshimatsu is more famous for its food than its rooms. Our room rate included dinner and breakfast. The kasieki dinner is purely japanese but with french influence. The ingredients were fresh and beautifully presented. It was absolutely delicious. The breakfast was a traditional Japanese breakfast with fish, pickled veggies, Japanese-style egg (tamago), and porridge or rice. It was a lot of food.

Location
I'd also add that Yoshimatsu has a very convenient location. It's a 10 minute walk to the main street, the pier and Hakone checkpoint. Right on the main street, there are plenty of restaurants for lunch.

Me, my wife and our 2 sons (5 and 3) stayed there for 3 night and we love it.
We decided to pay extra for the private onsen outside our balcony. From our private onsen we can see Mt. Fuji which was spectacular (even through we can only see the top of the mountain). The room itself was very big and comfy.
Food was amazing, traditional Japanese food with French favor.
Public bath was ok, while other facility was also just ok.
Services from hotel staff was excellent and we do appreciate their services very much.
Location was great, restaurants, pier, and bus station were in a walking distance.
Frankly speaking, we spent a lot of money with this hotel but it worth every penny.

Having visited many ryokans all over Japan we were looking forward to experiencing Yoshimatsu. First off don't expect the traditional method or level of service here. While polite and relatively efficient this place lacks the warmth and traditional ways of other ryokans. We found the service to be somewhat rushed and slightly rude at times. Secondly the hot spring facilities, both the public and private baths were mediocre and quite crowded when compared to other places. The quality of the rooms were also slightly below par next to similarly prices ryokans. The most outstanding aspect was the cuisine created by a veteran chef of over 16 years. The traditional Japanese cuisine fused with subtle Chinese and French influences was outstanding and a nice change from the straightforward traditional fare at most ryokans. The location is also convenient being less than a 2 hour car ride from the heart of Tokyo.

We requested and had room with private onsen. It’s low rise hotel, we were on ground floor which did mean our outdoor onsen was very peaceful. There is a view of Mount Fuji from the grounds but sadly when we visited it was cloudy. However private onsen was lovely as was the public onsens.

You can get a bus from train station, there are a few different options. It ended up taking us about an hour on the bus back to train station but that was due to some roads being blocked, there are done quicker options
