Great experience at the ryokan.
The place itself is very nice and quiet and they have some really nice hot water springs which you can book for private use.
The rooms are very spacious and staff is great.

The food in the evening was really tasty and filling.
Would not spend more than one day here if you do not have a car to explore during the day, as there is nothing to do in the area.

We traveled as a group of friends, 3 couples, and 2 single ladies in Jan 2014. Stayed at one type 'A', and one type 'B' room at "Villa Oku no Kigi" that are next to each other.

Each room is very big (1100 - 1200 sq ft), type A room has 2 powder rooms (toilet + sink), and type B room has 1 power room. Both has a "wet" bathroom with dual sinks and dual showers indoor. You use the shower to wash yourself before going into the open-air slate tub. The outdoor bath can fit 5-6 adults, filled with continuously flowing hotspring water, and has sliding doors to allow you to open up to see the views of the private garden, or close to keep out the cold air. Since we went in the middle of winter, it's really an amazing experience to be in 40 degree Celcius hotspring, and breathing in the crisp minus 3-5 degree air during late evenings / early morning. You'll get frost in your hair if you in the open air bath long enough.

The sleeping arrangement is two futons laid out in each "room". Each room has two main areas that are separated by sliding door where they set up futons. The layout is smart enough to allow you to walk towards the powder room without disturbing others in the other partition. I believe each room can have up to 6 people staying, we have 4 people per "room" and it's definitely spacious.

We arranged to have dinner and breakfast served Kiseki style in one of the rooms, so all 8 of us can enjoy food together. The service is impeccable with new dishes served and serving items removed without us ever interrupting our conversation. Food was very good and plentiful. They are also careful to ask about any dietary constraints and made adjustment on a few of the dishes for some of us. There's a 24/7 Lawson (convenience store) down the driveway of Senkyoro if you fancy a stroll outside, or get more choices in snacks/ drinks. Breakfast you can choose between western or Japanese breakfast, we opt for Japanese, and each person get to choose 2 choices of grilled fish to accompany the many other dishes that were served. A really elaborate breakfast by any standard. Dinner time is 6, 6:30, or 7pm. Breakfast is 8, 8:30 or 9am. We opt for 6:30 pm dinner and 9am breakfast.

To get to Senkyoro, you can take Odakyu Express Bus from Shinjuku station west exit (bus stop #35), it drops you off at the door at "Senykoro-mae bus station". Journey time is about 2 hours and you get to see Mount Fuji on a good portion of the trip driving towards there. One way bus ticket from Shinjuku is 1,850 yen, and combined with the "local" Hakone Free Pass (3,900 yen) you can tour Hakone (use all forms of transportation, including Cable car, ropeway, train, bus, and lake cruise) unlimited times. A really economical way to tour Hakone near by attractions in 2 days. If you are staying at other hotel/Ryokan in Hakone, you can consider the 5,000 yen 2 days Hakone free pass that includes round trip train from Shinjuku on the Odakyu line.

We arrived early at around 10:30 am, and dropped our luggage at the Ryokan, and head out to do the first bit of sightseeing in Hakone right away. They moved all of our luggage inside the rooms when we come back to check in around 5pm (their check-in time is 2pm).

All of us cannot say more nice things about this place and will definitely recommend for any large group or just couples that look for a bigger space to enjoy the tranquility.

This place is in the middle of nature and it is so well set. You wouldn't see high building and pack with rooms to offer but it is only big enough to provide best service. We got a room with private hot spring and also provide dinner and breakfast course. Yup can't go wrong with that. It is a nice place to get out from the city and enjoy the scenery with the hot spring

We payed almost 600€ per night of the experience in a Japanese styled room with a private onsen and a meal plan. The description said that there would be a bar and a restaurant as well as a beautiful garden path to take a stroll in the yukatas provided by the premises. There were also high reviews on the quality of the meals.

It turned out there was no bar, no restaurant, no karaoke, nothing. The garden path was a boring forest path around the premises with no other landscape other than the industrial-like facilities of the ryokan. The minibar only had a few overpriced beverages, so we had to go to the Family Mart nearby to buy drinks and food.
But why did we want drinks and food if the reservation included a dinner and a breakfast? Because they were BAD. They were beautiful visually but there was absolutely no flavor. Everything was bland, cold and mushy and the only drinks were one small glass of wine in the dinner menu and one tiny glass of juice in the breakfast menu. We were aware that the menu would be a traditional Japanese one, but already being aware of what a good one tastes like, that was not it. Mushy, bland, cold seafood, including a whole fish with its bones and bowels intact, fish babies, clam soup, frozen vegetables etc. The best dish of all was the warm pot of rice.
If the meals used to be good, I assume the chef has changed.

We asked for some kind of a compensation due to the false advertisement of entertainment, but were blatantly denied. We feel extremely robbed. For comparison: with the same amount of money we were able to book a luxurious room in the 41st floor of Kabukicho tower in Shinjuku Tokyo with a very tasty meal plan.

The staff was friendly, the private onsen was fun and the futons were comfortable, but those are the only pros I can give. Do not book a room here!

We were very disappointed to find out that all rooms are smoking rooms and there is a bad smell in them. The rooms and facilities except for the dining room are old and run down. The staff was polite but not pleasant. There are no private onsen annexed to the room and they charged extra money. We asked for a room with a view. We didn't get one.
The food was good.

The Sengokuhara area of Hakone is well-known for its natural, creamy white hot springs, and Senkyoro is a lovely Japanese-style inn for experiencing it in comfort.

Being avid fans of Japanese hot springs, we stay at such inns once or twice a month when in Japan during the cooler seasons, and our stay at Senkyoro was unique, owing to the room we booked while hosting a special guest from overseas who was visiting Japan for the first time.

As our guest was interested in Japan's renowned hot springs but uncomfortable with public bathing, we booked a premium room with private hot springs bath facilities in the West Annex, one of only two in that section of the inn, and we were quite satisfied.

The room was long and narrow, divided into three sections, separated by sliding doors, so we could have some privacy from our guest, and it featured a spacious hot springs bathing area, with four large "shoji" sliding wooden-and-rice paper doors that opened to a sizable private outdoor garden and terrace, where we sat, snacked and drank refreshments together, and read between baths. Although some occasional noise could be heard from the main road about one-hundred or so meters away, the private garden and bath areas were peaceful, aesthetically pleasing, and wonderfully convenient.

The menu and food at Senkyoro were very good, and presented in expectedly varied, unrushed, and decorative fashion. However, we were unexpectedly offered a Western-style breakfast, which was delicious and deeply appreciated, for although Japanese-style dinners appeal greatly to our tastes, Japanese-style breakfasts are a different story. Mr. Shimozono is the one to thank for this attentive and proactive service. (Indeed, he is quite certainly the best asset of an inn that has many assets.)

The large open-air public baths, and a smaller private bath that we reserved for an extra fee, were too hot to adequately enjoy, so we decided to bathe for the duration of our stay in our room's private bath, where we could more easily cool down the bath water. (The hot springs here are unusually hot, which required adding cold water to the baths from a hose, yet this was but a minor inconvenience to an otherwise delightful stay.)

Last, but by no means least, the nature surrounding the inn is something to behold, featuring a lovely landscaped environment of bushes and trees, and a walking path that winds through it all, enabling an interesting and refreshing journey across a bridge over a pond that is stocked with colorful and curious carp, through other parts of the inn and neighboring forest. (It is advised to change into regular shoes, instead of the sandals that are provided at the entrances, for better footing on the path.)

PS: For English-speaking service, it is recommended to contact Mr. Shimozono or Ms. Shiki, both capable and patient professionals who seem to truly understand the nuances of hospitality.

We had Amazing experience staying at Senkyoro last month.
I recommand getting either westwing room or the most expensive one if you can afford. the outdoor onsen and private garden is really hard to beat!
The private onsen in the room is real onsen water and keep flowing, so all you have to do is add cold water.
Food here is so awesome, you get meal served in the room. for dinner its a 10+ course meal and for breakfast you get big kaiseki-style breakfast.
Service staff are very nice as well. After check out we took too long looking at souvenior and miss the bus, it was raining as well. The hotel staff was nice enough to give us a ride to another bus station so we could get on to go back to hakone yumoto.

Amazing experience at this ryoukan, would stay again definately

We wanted an authentic ryokan experience and combed the reviews to find one that we thought would provide it. Senkyoro didn't disappoint. While somewhat dated in its appearance, the experience itself was amazing. We arrived by taxi having been caught in a heavy downpour (we would've taken the bus but were too wet). Immediately 3 different people came out to greet us and lead us into the building. We completed the paperwork quickly and then Haruku, our hostess showed us to our room. If it wasn't raining, I'm sure the views would be gorgeous. We were given Japanese tea and sweets and she explained everything to us including how to put on the hotel provided yukatas. We only had an hour before dinner so we relaxed in the room. We had hoped to eat in our room but we're told that this was not possible and we would be eating in the dining room. We changed and headed to dinner. Wow. It was a 12 course dinner of all types of interesting and very beautifully presented food. I can't say I loved every bite but the experience was amazing. The food just kept coming out and each dish was a visual masterpiece. Our 9 year old had a kids meal and even his bento box was spectacular. We ate for over 1.5 hours and were so stuffed when we finished we were almost uncomfortable. The dining area overlooks a gorgeous rock wall covered in foliage with a little water feature. Truly lovely. After dinner we went back to the room which was laid out with the traditional mats. The linens were crisp and fresh and the duvet was so fluffy and lovely we wouldn't wait to get into bed. But first we went down to the onsen to soak. It is gender segregated so my daughter and I went to ours and were delighted that we were the only 2 there. The water was very hot so we stayed only about 10 minutes, just enough to relax. Lots of shampoos and cleansers were available and also hair dryers. We headed back to the room to have a wonderful nights sleep. It was an absolute downpour outside and we could hear the wind whistling through the walls which was annoying but mother natures fault. We woke up to continued rain. There was a choice of Japanese and western breakfast. We chose western and it was another meal of delight. Homemade yogurt, fresh fruit artfully arranged on the plate, fresh coffee and oj plus scrambled eggs and bacon and fresh buns warm from the oven with jams. It was delicious. We were so disappointed to check out. Definitely recommend this place. It was shockingly expensive but the experience was once in a lifetime and we will remember it always.

This is an absolutely gorgeous ryokan, with private onsen. We had a large room. You have the option to sleep on a futon or a traditional bed (but suggest the former)! The views are lovely, and the food is terrific.

We stayed in 3 places in Hakone and of all the places, I enjoyed this place the most. We stayed in a room with a private onsen which was perfect. Upon arrive, you are greeted and arrangements to your room are made, The room was spacious and warm. A big highlight of the night was the Kaiseiki we have served in our room. Each dish was really good (except the dessert) served by a lady in a Kimono whom spoke little English. If your looking for a get away place and with a traditional Japanese feel, consider Senkyoro.
It is also just literally 1 min from the bus stop and Lawsons should you need. Cons: its quite far compared to other hotels from Hakone station. Senkyouro is closer to Gotemba. Rooms a littler old.

No on cigarette smoke. I don’t know on the room types because I only saw ours. We had a room with private onsen. The hotel is old fashioned by clean and comfortable. I liked having our own hot spring bath. Enjoy!

Check in for this hotel is 15:00 I don't think there is enough time to go around lake and back to hotel for dinner Should do half (up to "Gora"?) then take Hakone Tozan Bus to the Senkyoro hotel, check-in and relax and enjoy hot spring before the dinner I guess it's about 15min from Gora to Senkyoro-mae by the bus. They have bus running about every 20min >Google Maps doesn't make it seem like there's a good way to get to Sounzan without driving, although I see this Kanko Shisetsu-meguri route on Odakyu's map To Sounazan, Odakyu site says you can take "Hakone Tozan Cable Car" from Gora Then "Owakudani", "lake Ashi" or other places next day
