    Just 3-5 minutes walk to the main street (many shops and food options) and close to the Kinrin Lake. Very helpful staff.

    We did not know what to expect really and loved it. The staff is incredibly kind, the room was nice, so many nice touches welcomed us: yukata and kimonos, access to the onsen, plenty of little gifts, delicious japanese breakfast for such a good price. This place is a gem. Highly recommended if you plan on staying in Yufuin. And truly, Yufuin is a very nice place too. Far from the crazy big cities, a lot of charm and character. Very cute little place to rest and recharge.

    Very happy to stay in this hotel. Recommend to take taxi to reach the hotel even though It's just about 8-10 mins from Yufuin station. Nice dinner. Excellent service. High privacy. It's good to experience private bath there (need to book in advance). Worth for the price. Will definitely come again next time.

    Stay in a Japanese style room with nice view of Mt Yufu. Friendly staff, free private onsen, tasty dinner and breakfast, but a bit pricey.

    Pros: Excellent facilities. Private hotspring is awesome. Free to reserve each 50 mins at night and in the morning. Various yukata (bathrobe) can be chosen by female customers. Convenient location, 10 mins walking distance to Kinrin Lake. Staff is super nice and polite. Nice welcome gift. Room is spacious and clean, we get free upgrade to superior room. The environment is beautiful and cosy. Unforgettable dinner, fine appetiser and delicious sukiyaki. Worth to try the breakfast as well. Cons: Need to reserve the private hotspring earlier as it is limited

    Baby friendly onsen

    It’s comfortable but really showing its age. Chose this because I have a one year old which really cannot and shouldn’t enter public baths. And this place has several family baths available. Breakfast isn’t the usual buffet type , but the traditional Japanese type. Loved it.
