10/10 Exceptional

Perfect hotel. Location was next to the train station which is a must in this hilly town. Property nice and clean. Food was excellent. Kaiseki dinner with meat was tasty and filling. Breakfast was very good. Unfortunately the outdoor onsen was closed. Indoor onsen was large and had a variety of pools. Overall a memorable stay and I highly recommend this hotel.

6/10 Good

Check in was quick and staff was friendly. The room was clean. My only complaint would be the noise. The walls were thin and I could hear the people talking in the next room. The towels in the bathroom were a bit small, as well. Everything else was good.

Mid-budget hotel right next to the Station
It was a simple one night stay to check out the place and enjoy a bit of me-time. The only thing I am not happy about was the fact I need to pay 150 yen for the use of the onsen which should have been complimentary for hotel guests. Yes the amount is small but the shock of being presented with a bill at the end of the stay when it is not expected is not welcomed.
