Our stay was absolutely magical. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed with excellent service. The staff is very attentive and accommodating. The views & the rooms are exceptional. Our private onsen was very relaxing and just what we were looking for to finish our stay in Japan. The food is divine! It was like living in a dream.

First of all, friendly staff, great environment - the hotel is decorated with bamboos all around and since there's only 10 rooms & all with private onsen(& view!), it is very peaceful and relaxing. The location is far from any tourist attractions and the nearest Lawson store was about 3 mins away. That being said, I emailed the hotel for booking inquiry but did not hear back for 4 days, so I booked the hotel thru AGODA without knowing the higher-than-offical-website price did not include the dinner & breakfast that are supposed to come with the stay. The staffs were being polite about it, but after paying $790 USD for one night, $150 dinner + $30 USD meals for one person is way too much. Didn't want to walk outside in the dark and cold, we ended up having instant ramen for dinner and paid extra $60 for breakfast.

This was definitely one of the highlights of our holiday in Japan. We loved Kinnotake for many reasons: the friendly respectful staff (thank you for making us feel so welcome), the private onsen looking out onto the mountains, the food, the lovely ambience in the bar and of course the great relaxation due to the huge bed.
We chose to eat all meals in our room and we tried the Japanese breakfast one morning and Western the next.The dinner was amazing, all of two hours and brought in at perfect intervals.
A short walk to the bus stop and 20 mins on the bus will take you to Lake Ashi, the Ropeway and the volcano where you must try the famous black eggs.
We were initially concerned about finding Kinnotake as we don't speak any Japanese, it is simple. Catch the train to Odawara station and the T bus will take approx 1 hour through beautiful scenery and shops.
A fabulous place, wonderful staff and thank you again.

The stay was Ok but not worth it. The in room food service was an expirience but unfortunatrly, the food was not good. On top of the price they took 10€ just to sit in the bar. Recommendation: spend your money somewhere else.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was one of the highlights of our 2-week stay in Japan. What an incredible experience – such a peaceful and beautiful place to stay in. It is not cheap by any means, but it was completely worth it and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

The in-room onsen was the primary reason we chose this place. It's so nice to have a private onsen in your own room. There's no sharing with strangers and we could take a dip as often and as long as we wanted to, whenever we wanted to. It was absolutely perfect. The room itself was huge and beautifully designed. Quite stunning actually. Clearly a lot of thought was paid to all the details of the interior and architecture of the place.

The kaiseki dinner was a king's feast. It was absolutely delicious and perfectly presented. We loved every dish. The staff was also incredible. Everyone was so amazingly courteous, helpful, and accommodating. The service was truly, truly impeccable. 5-star service without a doubt.

The location is a bit of a pain to get to/from using public transportation, but other than that I got no complaints. We definitely will go back to Kinnotake. Highly recommended!

While this Ryokan is far from cheap, it is certainly worth staying at if you're looking to relax and be spoilt. Ensure you call ahead to notify them of your arrival time as we were met outside the Ryokan and then greeted at the entry way by the entire staff. Once our bags and shoes were whisked away we were served green tea in our room.

Our room was dual level, with the dining and lounge room downstairs, with the bedroom, bathroom and outdoor onsen upstairs. Dinner (both the service and the meal) was extravagant, and served to our room. Our room had a 4-seater dining table, so our friends were able to have dinner with us. After our 10 course feast, we adjourned to the bamboo bar for a few drinks. Overall, it was a great experience and we would certainly stay there again. It was toward the end of trip in Japan so it made a great way to relax and spoil ourselves.

Pretty and somewhat modern ryokan with good amenities. The room I stayed in (Mayu) was comfortable. I like the separate enclave where they served my meals and the smell of food doesn't permeate to the sleeping area. The staff were sincere and warm. The bar at B1 was nice too. Overall, a good stay, the only "complain" would probably be the outdoor shower - have to dash in and out after shower & onsen.

Kinnotake was not our first ryokan experience in Japan but it was one of the best. The design of the room was spectaular and spacious. We stayed at Haruka room and it was impressive. Of course the best part of it was the private onsen where you can indulge yourself whenever you want. The check-in time was 3pm and out at 11am. I think it was bit too short for such an expensive price and this was the only drawback I would think of. Food and overall service were great too. We'd love to go back there sometime in future.

We went to Hakone for 2 days (9 days in Japan total) because we like staying in ryokans for the kaiseki experience as well as the onsens and good service! Though this is not a traditional ryokan, it's luxurious and because we were staying with the baby this time, we figured this would be a good choice since dining was in-room and we had our own onsen.

Let's just say we were not disappointed by anything except the weather! We had hoped to see Mt. Fuji, but it rained the entire time we were there in early April. Regardless, we got to explore Hakone and we really enjoyed our time at Kinnotake!

Once you get to Hakone Yumoto station (typically coming from Shinjuku via Odakyu), you get on bus 3 that's heading towards Togendai. Pay attention to the stops and get off at Daigatake. It's uphill from there (so be ready to roll your bags!) and you should be greeted upon arrival (they need to know when you'll be arriving and check-in time isn't til 3pm). Once you're inside, it's easy to forget about how the winding bus ride up the mountain could have given you vertigo. It's calming and soothing and immediately relaxing. You'll get welcome drinks and snacks and instructions about your room. They'll also ask you about the timing of your meals and any food allergies you might have so they can prepare appropriately.

Our room (Kumo) was very nice and had a large king bed, nice balcony with a view of the bamboo-surrounded pond by the bar, another external area with the onsen, and a closed-in bath/shower area. Our dining doom was an adjacent room with sliding doors separating it from the sleeping area.

Though English wasn't anyone's strong-suit (except for one young lady), it was easy enough to get by using my basic Japanese and we were able to understand most of the explanations about each dish as well.

Set aside at least 2 hours for the kaiseki-style dinner! It was great and everything as fresh and/or well-prepared. We were typically ravenous at the time it was being served, so the dishes could not come fast enough! Breakfast was a welcome change because everything was laid out in one or two appearances so we could eat to our heart's content.

Though we didn't need meals for our baby, they were very thoughtful and provided utensils, a baby bowl and other things to make her day! We used those to give her a bit of our meal.

The attached onsen was very nice and it's always full of the warm spring water. The temperature was perfect for me, but there is a way to add additional cold water as needed.

Overall it was a great stay - even if the weather didn't cooperate. I'd highly recommend it! It's proximity to the bus stop makes it easy to get on the bus and head wherever you need to go.

Kinnotake is an extraordinary ryokan (traditional Inn) but with a design wow thats takes your breath when you step in. I walked in and felt I had walked into James Bond's Japanese lair. Dark, cavernous, exotic and designed beyong belief. Little touches, so reminiscent of Japanese design mixed with Western technology. But the wow factor sits pretty close to the ouch factor. This place, like most ryokans which belong to the Luxury Ryokan Collection (www.ryokancollection.com/eng) are very expensive. You can bet you get what you pay for, but it ain't backpakin'.

Kinnotake is suave, soulful and unique. But I have a couple of real problems....

Like most Japanese establishments, foreigners (gaijin) are treated differently to locals. When we arrived, we were whisked away to our room...no time to smell the cherry blossoms so to speak. I note afterwards however that upon arrival, a Japanese couple were taken into a special welcoming room and offered tea and more bows and curtsies than the last night of A CHORUS LINE.

For this sort of money - no one spoke English on our last day there! Sure a hotel can get away with some Japenglish, but on the only day we really needed to get some real help with a tricky travel question, the guy (try as he might) couldn't understand a thing. This really stinks for a place at this price.

Lastly, our pillows STANK, I mean reeked of cigar smoke. This is a big no no at a thousand five hundred dollars a night for a family.

Would I stay there again? Yes, but no without some English speaking staff.

I am a non smoker and I could not smell any cigarette smoke. For the price you pay they do an excellent job of cleaning. I didn’t have any problems with cigarette smell...and I can tell. Hope this helps!

No you can’t, this is a private hotel not a public onsen. Hope this helps.
