My first time at a ryokan, and service was impeccable. There were many types of onsen to soak in, and after a good soak there was a spread waiting for us! We particularly liked the 5F & 11F outdoor onsen, very comfortable and relaxing in the cold weather.

When arrive at Ogotoonsen station, approached the station staff they will give you the hotel's number. Make a call via public phone outside the station (FREE) and they will fetch you. It takes less than 10mins drive to the hotel. Staff converse in basic English and were very friendly. Be sure to try all their onsen! We had our charted...

Sent email enquiries in English to many onsen ryokans in the vicinity, and Yumotokan was the only mid range establishment that replied. Absolutely loved the room, yukata, kaiseki dinner and breakfast and service provided. Range of onsens was great too, with each onsen offering something different. Took the shuttle bus out to Sakamoto Cable Car Station for a day trip...

Clean comfy and very good for Japanese's onsen experienced. There are both inside and outside onsen area which is big and clean. Staff is friendly and some of them can communicate with English language. The room is traditional Japanese's style and they offer pick-up service from train station. There are some convenient store near by the hotel.

Neither the neighborhood nor the onsen exterior is inviting. But the hotel offers peace & comfort. Stayed in KAROI room on the 7th floor with private onsen for 2nights. Luxurious & spacious room with wonderful private onsen facilities. Also got access to the 4th floor KAROI lounge which we thoroughly loved. Kaiseki meals were delicious too but we were rushed...

Booked this onsen resort to wind down as we end our trip at Kyoto, onward to Osaka for shopping. First impression upon arriving at the hotel was quite a disappointing one. The surrounding was nowhere near the impression of a resort one would imagine. But how misleading that impression was. You are transported into a different world once you are...

Access from the train station was very convenient with their hotel bus service. The building is located in an odd, almost industrial looking part of town but don't let that ruin it. The interior is well decorated and clean. Calm and elegant. Our room was traditional and well laid out. The only caveat being our bathroom. The shower head was...

Its the kind of ryokan that pays attention to the smallest details that makes the biggest difference to the guest. Everything was well thought out and the attitude of staff also provided wonderful service. Love the free drinks stocked in the fridge.
