Stayed for 3 nights during the winter holidays and had a fantastic time. I've been staying at onsen for over 15 years and would rate this one (out of 5): 4.5 for the food; 5 for the Japanese atmosphere (old, traditional-style rooms); 5 for the balcony onsen; 4.5 for location (5 if you are going by train and want to be near the town but 4.5 if you prefer getting higher up the mountain). To be honest though I usually give pretty high scores for onsen but the one thing that stood out this time from all the other times was our staff, Cheryl. Like I said I`ve been going to onsen for over 15 years and speak very good Japanese so I like to think my understanding is pretty good but it was nothing compared to Cheryl`s she was able to explain a lot of the food that I had given up trying to understand years ago, and also give us a great history of the hotel and area. She was so committed and warm especially to my miserable daughter for the whole trip she definitely made this an unforgettable trip for all of us.

A stunning Ryokan that provided us great comfort and ease of mind during our honeymoon in March. The food was AMAZING but the service and hospitality left such a great impression. They responded to all of our emails in a timely fashion and were so accommodating with the meal on our first day (we had a tour that was supposed to get us to the Ryokan past dinner time. We went back and forth via email a bit saying “no dinner” “yes dinner” “no dinner” and when we got there they were able to still feed us). A big part in making this leg of our trip the most memorable was Cheryl, our room attendant. She went above and beyond in making sure we had everything we needed during our stay. From perfectly explaining what food we were being served, to giving us recommendations and directions into town, to even helping us order something we needed off of Amazon to be sent to our next hotel, she helped make this part of our trip absolutely perfect!

My wife and I had one night here in early December and enjoyed ourselves immensely! The location is great - not too far from Hakone-Yumoto station, across the river over a cute bridge. The ryokan itself is in pretty good condition - lots of bamboo/rattan as decoration, very traditional paper doors, and tatami mat floors. Some wear and tear here and there, but nothing to be upset about. We booked a room with a private onsen, which I would highly recommend - we could go dip into the hot mineral water whenever we wanted, rather than having to get fully dressed in robes and bring towels/etc and walk around. That said, the public baths were very nice and we enjoyed them when we had the chance. The food (dinner/breakfast) was VERY good and we really enjoyed it - lots of new things to try (if you're not from Japan) and interesting combinations. My wife has some dietary needs and they were handled with perfection by the staff. Our room caretaker was Anne, and she did an awesome job explaining everything from the bath situation to the robes to the beds to the food. Very happy with her. The beds were comfy, the pillows were....unusual. I'd ask for a different set next time, as ours appeared to be bean bags filled with rocks. Comfy as long as you didn't move your head. We only had one night here, and that was a mistake. We weren't sure how we were going to like onsen, so when we ended up loving it we were bummed that we couldn't get another night. The checkout procedures here are the only real low point. Very rushed, very STRICT on the 10am checkout. After what was a peaceful afternoon/evening/morning, the hurried nature in which we were essentially pushed out of the ryokan left a bit of a sour taste in our mouths. We ended up accidentally leaving some things behind due to the rush. Again, that is the only sour note. Otherwise, we'd stay here again (for at least two nights next time!)

My brother and I booked a room with a private onsen in our suite. We stayed only one night because it was pretty expensive. But i feel it was worth the price. If you are wanting to get a traditional Japanese experience then this kind of hotel booking is worth it. We took an overnight trip to Hakone from Tokyo. Its only about an 1.5 hour train ride, so travel from Tokyo is easy. The Ryokan is literally like a 5 minute bus ride from Hakone train station. The room was very nice and very clean. Some but not all of the staff speak English. Someone who spoke English welcomed us to the hotel and then handled explaining how the Ryokan worked and how to change into the yakata's, how the onsens worked, and when dinner would be. The attendant who served us dinner did not speak any english, but it didn't take away from the experience at all. There is an english menu that is given to you so you know what you are eating for each course. We got the upgrade meal plan and the food was wonderful! I liked everything we were served and most of the meal was new dishes I had never had before. The meal is served in 8 courses. This will likely be a very different experience for anyone coming from America like me. The is a not long but waiting period in between course, just a few minutes. So if you eat quickly you'll be waiting a little between courses. The portions are smaller, but by the end you are full. And there is risk and reward to the small portions. If you don't like something then its only a little you have to eat, but if you like it, you may be left wishing there was more. The food was beautifully displayed. Breakfast on the other hand is served all at once so you don't need to worry about courses for that meal. I think personally one night was enough to have the experience, but its not somewhere I would stay for 3 days or more. This is for a few reasons. First, there is not enough to do in the surrounding areas to warrant you staying in Hakone that long. Secondly, it is very expensive. Third, the Ryokan is small so there isnt much to do at the Ryokan other than eat at the designated meal times, use the onsen, and lounge in your room so you could easily get bored if you were staying for 3 nights or more. I suggest this as an overnight stay. Then head back to Tokyo or continue on your way to the next Japan destination on your travels. The Ryokan was clean, relaxing, good food, traditional experience, comfy futons, comfortable yakatas, and luxurious.
