Lovely, cozy hotel with excellent access from Gora train station. Polite and helpful staff. Free parking. Several restaurants within walking distance. Can walk to the open-air museum in 10 minutes.

Great value for young family oriented onsen get-a-way without fancy decor or frills. The hotel may be dated but very clean and at a convenient location easy to find. Staff were helpful and very prompt and professional in the buffet area despite the number of young children around at meal time. Very enjoyable stay.

Superb location right next to Gora station, only downside was the train barrier signal (unavoidable). Room was a little aged. Buffet dinner/breakfast were OK, decent varieties. The hotel provided hot spring/bath but I did not use, thus unable to comment.

They do make it clear that they offer an excellent value stay at a reasonable cost without excessive provision of amenities, and that is absolutely spot on. It’s a good hotel, better than a ‘business’ hotel, but at the same time, not fancy either.

Pros: Excellent location - a minute walk from Gora station. Friendly and efficient service. Good price. Good size communal bath which has an outdoor section. Bed was firm, but comfortable. Good wifi reception with a fast connection service. There are various types of vending machines on different floors.

Food was average, but good value for money.

Cons: Small bathroom. View from the room was not impressive.



Provided: yukata, communal slippers, tooth brush and toothpaste, comb, but no hair brush or razors.

The hotel could not have been in a better position. Right at the train station and cable car station. The staff went out of their way to speak english to us and to make our stay enjoyable. The buffet dinner and breakfast were excellent and very reasonably priced. The only criticism is that no where is the name of the hotel in english. Maybe on the front entrance pillar may be a great place to put it. We knew it was our hotel only by the picture we had printed along with the getting there instructions.
