Hakone Ginyu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 June 2017 via mobile

Went a few years back but only reviewed it now. Expensive and exclusive but is a top onsen. Service is impeccable I must say. Dinner is lavish and exceptionally good and creative. There are rooms with private tubs but rooms without tubs are fine as well. Valley view is impressive. Transport highly recommended as it is along the route up to Hakone. However the hotel will ensure you board the correct buses too. Worth every $.

Stayed: July 2016, travelled with friends

I'm a little late in writing this review but if Hakone Ginyu has maintained its standards from a few months back, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The moment we set foot in the lobby, we entered a serene, calm oasis after a tiring day of exploring Hakone. The lobby and common areas had some interesting Balinese themes but we thought the property overall was stunning, the views out into the trees are incredible and this continues when you get to the room. We had a western style room with that same amazing view (even better when viewed from the private onsen) and it was amazing. Separate dining area, bedroom, nice seating area by the window, lovely bathroom with the shower room leading out to the onsen. The kaiseki was out of this world, and to top it all off, the staff brought us to a terrace upstairs to eat dessert, where they had set out hundreds of little candles in celebration of our honeymoon - we didn't even tell them, one of the reception staff guessed and asked us! We were so touched by the effort that went into such a thoughtful gesture. For us this was a splurge for sure, but the experience was truly unforgettable.

This ryokan is top notch. We had spacious accommodation and excellent service. The chef accommodated my wife's diet restrictions and the staff were most careful to ensure that the meal she was served worked for her diet and tastes. Great views over the gorge. The lounge and bar area are beautiful. If you want to test the ryokan experience at a top level this does it.

Room Tip: Ask for extra towels

Wow, from the moment you enter you are blown away by the amazing view and the friendly staff. The hotel has a public hot pool and a beautiful traditional vibe. Our room was stunning and large. We had a private onsen looking over the mountains, and a dining room for our breakfast and dinner. The food was amazing. I recommend getting the Japanese breakfast and sake tasting plate. My only disappointment is I only booked for 1 night. Was left wanting more.

We were mesmerized by the spectacular view on the lush mountains and its natural surrounding.
We stayed in the Tsuki Room with private outdoor hot spring bath.
The kaiseki (multi-course Japanese meal) dinner & breakfast was of good quality, scrumptious and nicely plated and served in the comfort of our room.
We had a memorable stay and would recommend this great luxury Ryokan especially for Couples who are looking for a relaxing, serene and private time!
Staff were friendly and they are able to communicate in English.
Location: Stone's Throw away from Miyanoshita Station.
