Pleasantly Surprised.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 1 July 2017
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.

Clean and nice hotel with good service. Onsen indoors and outdoors with free fine products. Very good food and a number of dishes were served at the dinners. Friendly staff who, however, could not speak much English but went well with google. We came by cable car and got off at the right side at Kami-Gora station, then it was only a few minutes walk to the hotel and it was easy to find. A lot to choose from for breakfast. It was nice that there were Yakuta to borrow as you carry at the hotel.

I together with two of my friends had two nights stay at the hotel. We booked in advance for the free shuttle bus from the hotel to Gora Station on the day we check-in. On the departure day, we even went to the hotel lobby early (more than 1 hour allowance) to confirm on the booking. When 10 minutes before departure time, we went up to the hotel staff again to check on when to move our luggage to the hotel vehicle, we got the shock of our lives when told the vehicle broke down 30 minutes earlier!

We were mostly at the lobby all the while taking photos and could not understand why they did not bother to approach us to inform us immediately when the vehicle broke down. As we had another bus to catch and there was snow fall at that time, we tried to ask for alternative transport/taxi but to no available. We ended up have to lugged our big luggage ourselves all the way to the nearest cable car station for the transfer to Gora Station!

No sure is the country culture or the miscommunication issue (staff with limited English language proficiency), would like to see the hotel have better service for such unforeseen situation to reduce unnecessary frustration from guests.

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.

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
