Worth a stay
Great stay in Arima Grand Hotel! Room seems newly renovated. Onsen was not crowded and comfortable for hot bath in some privacy. Staff are very friendly and professional. Price is on the high side but worth a stay. Nice Breakfast buffet spread.

The service is supreme. If we can enjoy the onsen and the wonderful view together in the room then would be great.

Perfect Stay and Top Hospitality
Nothing really to pick on. My wife would like to have Kobe beef although we had Wagyu beef in the meal already...expecting too much.

Excellent stay in Arima
Stayed at Grand Hotel with my sister. In-room dinner was themed with Hina Matsuri (Doll Festival) with cute Hina doll bowls and many spring-themed dishes and plates. We then dipped in the Gold and Silver springs on the top floor of the hotel. Enjoy hot/cold drinks and free massage on a massage machine there. The BEST part was in the morning when we went to take a bath in the morning at the top-floor bath house. We watched the sun coming out the mountain rim as we dipped in a hot bath. It was simply beautiful. Then at the breakfast buffet both of us, having different tastes, fully enjoyed favorite foods. I stayed in many places in Arima but by far this hotel has always been the best.
