This is a renovated hotel keeping its old time charm and service. No breakfast buffet; but excellent breakfast (Western or Japanese) is served at table. You can even order breakfast a la carte. Dinner is a bit expensive, but whenever you feel you earned a treat go for it. The rooms are very spacious with separate bath and shower (the...

This is said to be Japan's oldest western style hotel. It certainly oozes character. Set in an imposing hillside location with great views to mountains & the town's famous temple complex ( which is a very short walk away). Rooms are spacious and ours had a great view to snow capped mountains . Comfortable beds and functional bathroom are fine....

I was planning a getaway from Tokyo for some quite time with my husband, and chanced upon the availability of one night stay at this hotel. Having already read the reviews here and on the other sites, i knew that this was...

It is a very stylish hotel with a lot of history. We booked the room complete with dinner and breakfast. The dinner was an excellent 5-course dinner. We were served very well. The room is large and stylish and located in the Japanese style building adjacent to the main building with view towards the river. The only drawback we can...

best thing about this hotel is location. It seems seems very tired. Unlikely it has changed much since all the famous people stayed there. Room is clean and fairly quiet. Amenities are minimal. Service is ok. Breakfast is ordinary. Dinner mediocre and very very overpriced.

Everything is in the title... This hotel hasn't had a renovation done in a very long time, the hallways are almost "The Shinning" spooky, not so clean, humid room, small bathroom, bad amenities. Absolutely not worth the USD400 x night

In some ways this hotel is like a best Western motel. And otherwise the service is extremely nice and the lobby and dining rooms are very pleasant to sit in and eat at. Our room has charm and looks like a Frank Lloyd Wright inspiration but the bathroom is decaying and the red rug is kind of gross. Still, there...
