Such potential such disappointment. The entire property is very dated in need of major renovation including carpets paint bedrooms bathrooms restaurant and spa facilities. Even the toilet continuously wreaked foul odors in our room. Outdoor Onsen is ver
very nice old style ryokan, public bath could need a little refurbishment, private bath very cozy,foreign staff also very friendly and speaking very good japanese, beautiful garden
The room is clean and the food is good. They serve the dinner and breakfast in a private room which is good. The hot springs is big and you can get a private bath for additional charge. Location is rather far away from the main street. Need about 10-15 min
We are a family or 5 (4 adults and 1 baby) and we stayed in the family room. The room was spacious, clean and had a great view but bathroom feels a bit dated. The onsen was good especially the outdoor and we enjoyed it. The food (Kaiseki) could be better i
Room and service is ok, the hotel is just next to the river, the view is good.
We stayed in a very comfortable Japanese style room with open air bath with hot water from Gero Onsen (one of the 3 best onsen in Japan). The traditional kaiseki dinner was served in a private eating room, and was marvelous (Hida beef really is a must).
Lovely hotel grounds, large room, limited English at front desk. Food quality disappointing and no staff on hand at meal times to explain the types of food. Being foreigners, we were a bit lost to what we were eating. Had better dining experience at other
Onsen is good. Set dinner is above expectations. We all love to stay here again.
Very good price for a onsen experience with two meals.
Room and food are very good. Location is quite far from train station and there are noise of train.
This hotel is rather old. The wardrobe door of the room in which we stayed has several prominent dirty stains. Food is alright but there was no menu for both meals so we did not know the name of the dishes. There was also no explanation given by the waitre
This hotel is very comfortable fast & easy to get their and the location is close to the river very nice.
Nice location. Nice service.
