Tocen Goshoboh is an absolutely stunning hotel and conveniently located 3-4 min walk away from Arima Onsen station. Walking through the halls always felt like exploring a mansion rather than a hotel. All of the display cases in my room with antique books and statues were a nice touch. Every staff member I interacted with was courteous and genuinely seemed to want guests to be as comfortable during their stay as possible. The multi-course kaiseki dinners as well as the simpler (but equally delicious) breakfasts were some of the best I've had in Japan. I also enjoyed the onsen facilities which were very clean and well-taken care of. I would travel to Japan just to stay at this hotel again.

Wonderful experience!
First time in a roykan and this place set the standard very high! When we got off the Hankyu bus station, we literally walked 20 paces to the hotel. We were greeted by the staff, who even cleaned our suitcase wheels. The staff did as fast check in and showed us to our room. They were able to explain the procedure for the onsen and organized dinner and turn down service. I highly recommend this place!

A wonderful and authentic escape!
This was an amazing way to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle. The hotel is lovely, the staff is beyond attentive, and the mineral bath was great, too. It’s also worth taking a stroll through town - totally picturesque.

We enjoyed the architecture of the ryokan and our breakfasts. We did have a Japanese suite for 3 persons which was large and very comfortable and we stayed 3 nights. However, we were a little disappointed in the onsen as only onsen towels were provided and no bath towels which meant we had to take our room towels to the onsen and bring them back damp. Also the "silver" onsen was claustrophobic in that it was completely enclosed with only a small opening so it felt like a steam bath/Jacuzzi and not particularly relaxing. If you don't speak any Japanese it is also difficult as very little English is spoken and we had some minor misunderstandings. Otherwise an enjoyable stay but we probably won't return as we weren't impressed with Arima and there are many other ryokans with onsens and towns that are more to our liking.
