                        Bus stop is just in front of the Hotel easy to travel. Near Hotel has a large hot spring(Yunessun) Very good for family. Japanese restaurant in this hotel is great. Good food and good servive but a bit expensive.

                        Hotel is a bit old but still in a good condition.

                        The room looks dirty, the blanket is so wear out. I will never stay in this hotel again.

                        Decent location with good travel links (relatively speaking)

                        Seems to be a family hotel primarily so anyone expecting peace and quiet won't find it with kids shouting early in the morning.

                        Nice warm hotel room to return to in the evening

                        The need to book for restaurants and trying to get a reservation confirmed. No coffee shop for light meals or snacks.

                        Location

                        Too old. The room given to us had horrible view.

                        The public bath / onsen in this hotel is very good

                        The price of the restaurants

                        nice enviroment,and hot spring

                        Proximity to the yunessan.

                        Very dated, but they do the best they can with what they have to work with at the property. New baths, new beds, and removing the smoke smell in some locations would go a long way to refresh the location.

                        Room was large for Japan and overlooking the gardens. Hotel had a hot spring bath with helpful signs explaining etiquette, which we took advantage of. Restaurants looked excellent and staff were still helpful if finding us a cheaper alternative. Location is good, just by a bus stop a short way from the station. Also opposite a water park.

                        Restaurants in the hotel expensive.

                        Large rooms with ok view. Convenient with the bus stop right outside and the Yunessun water amusement park across the street.

                        High prices in the restaurants, luckily the Family Mart close by offered superb sushi etc.

                        Restaurant cost a bomb

                        Cleanliness, spacious room, fabulous onsen, beautiful gardens. Great countryside to wander through.

                        No wifi and two ancient pc's in lobby that almost no one on staff could help with navigating. Not set up for selecting language of keyboard. Crazy in this day and age. Lots of frustrated guests trying to use the Internet in different languages. Please spend a cour of thousand dollars and set up wifi for guests.

                        Excellent location amid mountains of Kowakidani / Miyanoshita area. A bit modern and characterless in terms of room decor but typical for a 1990s-style Japanese 4 to 5 star hotel. Very nice gardens behind the hotel make for perfect morning or evening strolling. Across the street from "Yunessan", which is a large water-park style spa complex with family friendly and Japanese style baths all from the local hot springs. Very convenient for hiking, Yunessan and other onsen (hot springs) in the area. No restaurants nearby so you're limited to the hotel's restaurants, but there is a small convenience store nearby for snacks and small purchases, and Yunessan itself has a number of good restaurants inside its complex. Overall a relaxing place to stay, although many tour groups stay here so mornings (check-out) and early evening (check-in) are very busy. The hotel's own hot springs baths are very nice and have good views. Overall decent value for money.

                        Rooms and hotel's general decor is very bland and standard 1990s-Japan. Don't stay here if you are looking for tatami mats, shoji doors and other very old-style Japanese ryokan inn decor or service. This is a relatively modern hotel with a somewhat faded ambience (of bubble-era Japan) but very well-located and quiet in general.
