2/5 Poor

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Disappointing Well-known Old Hotel
This hotel was built in an official palace of Lord Yamanouchi, who was a key influential person for transition from Edo era to modern Japan, Meiji. We thus expected a nice Hotel, but disappointed by construction of a new building, which would not match with the history. Hot springs were not working due to some problem. Breakfast was a disapointment also.
