Enjoyed this place
Located in a remote, quiet onsen town that has a beautiful view of the local mountains. Also, if you are planning on going to Jigokudani (Snow Monkey onsen park) it is relatively easy to get to. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Would go again if I was in the area!

Expensive but SO worth it
We booked this hotel to experience a traditional ryokan and to celebrate the end of our three weeks in Japan. It was super expensive for our budget (we're backpackers), but SO worth it. The staff were wonderfully friendly, the rooms were spacious and beautifully designed in traditional style, and the breakfast they served (both western and traditional) were perfect. We also booked the private bath for 50 minutes (price of 2150 yen), and it was AMAZING. The only things I could complain about was the female only bath had slightly dirty water, but that could happen from people not understanding how to use the baths. We didn't get to see much of the local area, so we can't really comment on that. Tip: If you're not familiar with Japanese food and not up for being adventurous, maybe opt for a western style breakfast. I loved my traditional breakfast, but it had a bewildering array of flavors and textures. Last breakfast they can serve you is at 8:30 am.

Attentive staff; good food; quiet room
The hotel is 3 minutes from Yudanaka station, so getting there and away is convenient. My reservation included breakfast and dinner and both were fantastic.

Overall the stay was very good. The open air onsen is very nice with really warm rooms. WiFi connectivity was the only issue.

Great getaway!
One of the great Ryokens we have stayed in. The private onsen is one of the best for sure! Nice food, big room, and friendly service. If you are planning to see snow monkey, you should consider to stay here for sure!
