Very Good8.0
nice place to stay
we really enjoyed staying here! great location and very friendly and easy service. a traditional ryokan a no-frills experience, so make sure you know what you're getting in to. check out time of 10am is a little too early for a hotel this expensive, but it is what it is. we had a fun and interesting time, 2 nights enough time here...i couldn't see a reason to stay here longer, and even 1 night would be enough. I definitely suggest checking this out if you want a traditional japanese experience.

Good location, poor amenities
We stayed in a large Japanese style room. Room was unattractive with old scratched furniture. Wi-fi was very inconsistent and mostly didn't work. Staff spoke poor English. There was no electric pot for heating water for tea, and we were provided with one tea bag per person per day and a thermos of hot water. Room was quiet except for week-end evenings, and location was terrific, close to transportation, food, nightlife and shopping, but quiet and less commercial in atmosphere. Room was over- priced for what we got. We did not pay extra for the meals.
