When you have spent the last week in tiny airbnb rooms, Hakone Green Plaza is a luxury. Easy access via the Ropeway from Gora Station, hop off at the 2nd last stop on the right. Walk down the road less than 10 minutes and you're there! Gotemba shopping outlets have a bus from Gora station. Also easy access to the cable cars, we got to repeat the cablecar ride in the morning before 11am checkout! We got the dinner and breakfast deal which I would recommend because there arent any restuarants in its vicinity and it is quite quiet at night. Dinner was very good and filling (although perhaps not enough for a full grown male - supplement with sulfur eggs!) Breakfast was a mix of western and japanese buffet. We chose the japanese suites which were spacious and the futons incredibly comfortable. (The hotel helped us set up whilst we were at the hotel restuarant). I highly recommend spending time in the onsen in the evening, take advantage of their excellent bath products that make my hair smell divine. Wearing the Yakuta around thr hotel was fun also! Don't forget to check out the outside as well as inside onsen!! The hotel charges an onsen tax so you may as well! There are also massage chairs to relax! Wifi is in the lobby only but it is fast and the lobby has chairs private enough to curl into and skype. On checkout we missed the shuttle bus back to Gora station but the bus driver was kind enough to do a second loop on his return, and helped us carry our heavy bags up and down the undercover walkway. Excellent experience to remember!

We stayed here for two nights in a family room. Hotel is a bit older but quaint and clean. At first we had trouble finding the hotel - get off at stop 61 from cable car then follow path/ road, then turn right. We enjoyed the onsens morning and night with hardly anyone else using them. We had paid "half board" and the food was excellent. Dinner involved nine courses and was beautifully presented and delicious. Breakfast was a buffet of everything you could want. The staff spoke little English but bent over backwards to help. Amazing what sign language and Google translate can achieve. We will return when back in Hakone

My family of 2 adults and 2 children (6 and 9 years old) stayed for one night at this hotel. It was an old but lovely place set amongst green trees and peace and quiet. The decor and appearance was a bit dated but it was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Check in was fine as they had a staff member who spoke reasonably good English. When I later spoke to another staff member who didn’t speak good English (while looking for a hairdryer), he still did his best to try and answer my question. The Japanese politeness was definitely evident.

We had a room with 2 single beds and 2 futons. The rooms were quite spacious. The hotel offered to put the futons out while we had dinner. When we returned, they hadn’t been done yet so I went to reception and asked for their help. By the time I had walked up three flights of stairs to my room (choosing not to take the elevator), housekeeping were already there, setting out the futon.

We chose half board and enjoyed an 8 or 9 course dinner. When I made the reservation, I said that my husband doesn’t eat seafood and they replaced all his seafood courses with other options. The breakfast buffet had a good range of food on offer.

We visited the onsen twice while there. Having never been to an onsen before, I can’t compare it with anything else but we all enjoyed the experience. There is only one outdoor onsen so it alternates between males and females (eg the females had it fir the afternoon and the males the next morning while we were there). I really enjoyed the outdoor onsen.

The hotel provides Yukatas that you may west around the hotel. We weren’t given any info on how to wear them (or we overlooked it) and so I would suggest googling “how to wear a yukata”. Because we didn’t and I’ve since found out that I wore it the wrong way! (Apparently it’s left side over the right side).

There are some complimentary toiletries in the room. The onsen also has toiletries. The room has a small clothes drying rack, hot water urn and tea making facilities.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel and would stay again.

Tip: take the RIGHT exit from the cable car, otherwise you’ll be on the wrong side of the platform and there’s no way to cross the track. To get to the hotel, walk down the road to the end, where there is a T junction. Turn right and continue walking for about 100-150m and the hotel is on your left. If you reach the Hyatt Regency, then you’ve walked too far.

This is a true Ryokan. The staff speak little English, the only meal options are set Japanese foods. We loved it. The Onsen, the meals, wearing Yakuta to dinner. We loved all of it. We used public transport all the way (including the cable car up from Gora station). The only one hiccup was the fact that there are no signs in English to get from the cable car stop to the hotel. It was a little 10 minute adventure to figure that out.

Great location away from it all up a mountain. You can have a truly Japanese experience here if you go for the Dinner Bed and Breakfast Rate but be warned, this is hardcore Japanese food and some Westerns will find it hard to eerrrrr appreciate. The food keeps coming and it is 5 Star presentation all the way. Very traditional Japanese. You will be wearing the house provided 'Kimono' to dinner if it takes your fancy. Most people did. The location is superb in the dense woodland of the mountainside and it's only a short taxi to the cable car. The staff here are superb. They speak little English. Probably because they are Japanese so why should they. If necessary they will bring up a translator online. I have to say I was taken unwell whilst staying here and they could not have been more helpful and considerate. When I returned from my unplanned visit to hospital they allowed me to stay late in the room to get some rest, no problem. Great Onsen here and you really feel like you are immersed whilst only being a 3 minute taxi from the railway station costing only a couple of dollars. They also have a shuttle you can book. Thanks to all the very helpful staff at the hotel. Your kindness was much appreciated.

This lovely little hotel may be a little outdated, and in peak times overpriced (but as is everything else in the area) but it’s a great representation of Japanese hospitality. The dinner is very memorable (make sure you like seafood and sashimi), and we found the room comfortable. The staff speak limited English but are very helpful.

When I booked this hotel, I chose the ryokan style because this will be the one of the best way to experience Japanese culture. Also, the hotel offers breakfast and dinner which I found it to be convenient for tired travellers like us. The hotel also provided yukatan or the Japanese robe. And of course their outdoor and indoor onsen.

The staff were helpful in giving directions in English. They even sent me an email detailing what bus to take coming from Kawaguchiko. They also accommodated most of my requests. I want to extend my thanks to the hotel manager for accommodating our request to shuttle us to Gora station with our luggages because Hakone ropeway was stopped due to sulfur from the volcano.

The hotel is near the cable (Kami Gora) and Gora station which is so convenient. Taking the cable will take you to the Hakone Ropeway. Taking the ropeway is the fastest way to take the Lake Ashi cruise. With the hotel price, I will choose this hotel over Hyatt Regency which is just across from the hotel. Breakfast has a lot of variety food to choose from. Dinner on the other hand is a set menu.

The gift shop offers good boxed snacks/food as gifts. You can also sample it and this is a good idea of selling their products. I bought several from them because it is really good.

THE TA MAP IS WRONG! You actually need to get off at Kami-Gora station, which we found out in after tramping from Gora train station in the rain as we thought it was so close. But it was worth it - we were the only Westerners in the hotel and it finally felt like we were in the depths of the real Japan. The onsen is a great experience - make sure you try all the various face and hair products they have for free. It's fun trying to work out the bathing procedure the first time you go (Google helped us!) Definitely walk round in the robe and slippers provided, like everyone else does. The staff don't speak much English but that doesn't matter as they go out of their way to make sure that you're understood and somehow all your requests are catered for. The dinner provided with half-board was spectacular - food kept coming and coming. We asked for rice as well after reading on here that there wasn't a lot of food, but we found we were too full after it. (Tip - the sake tasting gives you 5 different ones, all yummy). The open-air museum is great, both for adults and kids, but there isn't much else to do, especially when the weather's not good enough to catch sight of Mount Fuji on the cable car. We all loved the hotel's faded 70s elegance, and it was a lovely relaxing two nights after the frantic travel beforehand. A real treat to see a different side of Japan.

A very enjoyable stay with great food and service.
The onset was an experience in itself.
Unlike some of the reviews the hotel was easy to find.
The only downside was the lack of a view.
To get the best out of your visit I would recommend to go along with the Japanese guests by wearing the robes supplied by the hotel.

Expensive for what the place offered but not bad for a ryokan. It was a bit of a last minute booking and not too many places left given the season. It is outdated but on the positive side, it adds to the "local" experience.

We arrived about an hour before check-in and instead of letting us occupy the room, they preferred to have us waiting around.

Another complaint was the fact that our room was never done. It was skipped two days in a row. The fact that we had to go to reception each day to request fresh towels is what made it a huge miss for us.

Outside onsen (hot spring) was small but very relaxing and the yukatan (Japanese robe) the hotel provided were well appreciated.

Last but not least, make sure you like seafood. If seafood is not your forte, make sure to let them know at check-in so that they can carter to your allergies/palette. Almost every course has some element of seafood incorporated.

Hakone. You will need to buy a new train ticket if you are on the Japan Rail Pass as the journey to Gora is not covered. It's very inexpensive anyway. Enjoy your trip.

Hi WJL1, Dinner is seafood such as fish, squid, octupus, shrimp and soup. You will be given a choice what you I like. I chose seafood. Dinner is served in one of the rooms Japanese style/way. If you chose breakfast, it is buffet and there are several choices. If I remember correctly, they served American breakfast and Japanese as well. Lilitz

Hi Michelle, 1. The hotel has shuttle and can bring you to Gora Station. It is near to these train stations - Kami Gora and Gora. When I say near, it is a walking distance approximately 10 minutes walk. 2. From Tokyo, I’m not sure where in Tokyo will you be staying. So, Inwould not be able to help you on this.we went to Hakone in a different route. 3. Yes, the hotel is suitable for 6 & 9 yo. Lilitz
