  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Warning- beware of this hotel.

I have used Hotels.com for travels in Vietnam, Greece, Turkey, England , Ireland and Australia over the last few years and this is the first time that I feel that I have been cheated. The description and photos of the rooms are not just inaccurate but are a total and deliberate misrepresentation. Noting about the rooms was truthful and the hotel was in a state of disrepair, from cracked windows, chipped walls and a strong smell of smoke throughout the building. Although we had booked and paid for 3 days, we cut our losses and left after the first night. ( we would not have stayed even the first night but there was no accommodation to be had near bye. If you are considering this hotel look carefully at the photos and as yourself why they are miscoloured and unclear. This alone should be enough to warn you. Do not stay here.I would also love to know where the glowing reviews came from.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Your typical onsen hotel. We're suprised with the size of the room. For japanese standard it is huge especially for the rate. Comfy futon and quite tasty breakfast.

Very close to Yudanaka station with spacious rooms and comfortable futons, even for westerners. Also has a very japenese experience, and authentic, mineral hotspring in the foyer.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Five minutes walk from the train station. Good hot springs facilities, Free morning ride to the Snow Monkey Park, kind and helpful front desk staff and good. Japanese breakfast. Lack of hotel signage made it difficult to find the property. Had to ask another hotel for directions.
