I have stayed in this hotel for the 6th time and like the atmosphere and qualifications. I was however sadly surprised by the stubborn rejection to get access to the bar on the 26th floor to have drink with my wife whom I brought for the first time to this hotel.

The staffs are very polite and helpful starting from the introduction, foods are delicious and the honkan hot springs are very clean. Quiet room and the temperature is just right. The staff serving the meal explains details in every dish. Kimono and yukata are provided. Shuttle services and easy access. We all had a good experience.

This hotel is situated on an amazing piece of property. We loved the view out of our room and the staff treated us like Kings and Queens. The hotel was very nice and we had a great time. The shuttle is prompt and always available. However, the hall ways had a terrible mold/ rotten smell which floated over into the room. We got used to it after about 5 minutes or so, but every time we walked down the hallways to our room we smelled it. I'm thinking it was due to the moldy stained carpets throughout. Also, not knowing the policy of some hotels in Japan, my Expedia account was automatically set to 2 people staying in the room. So I booked the hotel for $460 for 2 nights. When I arrived they happen to notice there were 3 of us. Two adults and 1 child. Apparently, many hotels in Japan require an exact person count when you originally book the room. So when we arrived we had to shell out another $250! This was obviously a huge bummer and ruined the first few hours of our stay. Had it been the original price, I'd say it was a good value for the condition of the Hotel and Onsen. However, being $350 a night, there are much better hotels at a lower price just down the street and closer to town.
