Excellent ryokan a stone's throw from Nikko's shrines and temples
Excellent traditional ryokan just 5 minutes' walk from Nikko's shrines and temples, and there was a shuttle bus to and from the station - super convenient. In addition the staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke good English.
Great location near the temples
Winderful treatment... i would have liked to stay more
Whole staff was extra-nice! Place is very beautiful and clean and the outside onsen is divine. Room is very big and confortable.
Good onsen nearby Toshogu world heritage
Good location, onsen, cleanliness
This traditional Ryokan with some modern amenities gives a very nice old-fashioned experience.
Well, they really didn't have enough English to manage English-speaking guests. One older woman at the desk, cheery and energetic, managed, but she was also a can-do type. Several of the desk types were pretty passive.
We liked the Onsen bath, even though tradition required us to be in separate pools and there was a short walk outside between the main building and the pool which was Cold and we weren't prepared for the first time. We liked the totally fascinating local-style meals, with dozens of unidentified morsels, many of them various pickles. And the location, 2 blocks from Toshogu Shrine and a 5-minute walk to the bus stop for Lake Chuzenji was perfect!
Although the accommodation and the rooms might seem a bit dated, we experienced a perfect service and enjoyed the excellent onsen.
A place I'd like to come back to.
Very kind and accomodating staff, spacious room, comfortable futons, nice onsen, delicious food, very good service, near or walking distance to major tourist spots.
Good location, bad experience with staff.
The front desk attendant was very unprofessional. I booked a shuttle for our party to the hotel but it never came so we had to take a bus and walk up a hill with our luggage. Also I booked a shuttle for when we leave the hotel at 4 pm but had to re-book it the next day because the same attendant never made the reservation.
The hotel was very close to the attractions (5 minutes walk) we wanted to visit and had a hot spring. The breakfast and dinner were OK, the old lady who served us was a little grumpy.
A great place, and a very good location; within walking distance of the major shrines.
We reserved a superior room and this was a great choice with two large rooms and a balcony. As usual, for Japan, the furnishing was minimalist but this is a very nice placee.
We just loved everything! The kindness of the staff, the traditional futon rooms, the meals! We'd like to come again!
I loved everything! A great location to Shrines and very good staff. Onsen and Karaoke are the bonuses. I enjoyed every minute
Staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel location is excellent as It was close to the Nikki toshogu.
It was a great cultural experience.
It wiikd be better if more staff could speak English.
The Western breakfast was great!
