    The room was large and comfortable for 4. I did feel the Ryuguden needed some upgrading. The entire hotel staff was courteous.

    We stayed here for one night while we were visiting Hakone. I had picked it because of the ability to see Mt. Fuji out of the room window, unfortunately it was cloudy and rainy the whole weekend so that didn’t happen :,(. The staff was amazing - beyond helpful with everything. They really made us feel extremely pampered the whole time. However the hotel itself for the price could use some updating which is why I only gave it 4 stars overall. It was built in the 1990s and though it’s in perfect condition it’s definitely dated. The dinner and breakfast were also good (but there was no coffee!!!!).

    Great relaxing stay away from the hustle of Tokyo
    Onsen, kaiseki dinner, set breakfast were all amazing. super close to Lake Ashi and the Komagatake ropeway (gondola) so we were able to go to the top. Futon on the floor was a true taste of old Japan, but not for me.

    Beautiful ryokan experience
    This is our first ryokan experience and we are truly impressed with the service and scenery as described. There are English and Chinese speaking staff hence non-Japanese will have no problem in communication. We were 10min late for the shuttle bus service from Odawara station but driver waited for us patiently and assisted with our luggages even. Delicious dinner and breakfast were served at the common dining area.

    Ask for the free shuttle schedule to the Hakone shrine area, and pay attention to the timetable. It is pretty difficult to find a taxi in the area.

    Great view, very peaceful place
    Great view, would go again. Only negative is it’s not walking distance from town if that’s important to you.
