We stayed at Hyoe Koyokaku in May 2017. Our rooms were spacious with a massage chair inside. It was really relaxing to sit on a massage chair after having a hot onsen bath. Our dinner was served inside the room. It included a small hot pot and pan-fried beef. The quality was very good. Breakfast was served in buffet style....

The hotel is located within only a few minutes walking distance from the train station, but I understand that there is also free shuttle service if you call the hotel. It is a classy and large hotel. Service was efficient. We were led to our room by a staff who gave us a detailed explanation of the hotel facilities and...

I was with my mother, who really appreciated the hotel shuttle from the train station. It is not far, but it is up a fairly steep hill. Not having to haul our luggage up the hill was nice. And free shuttle back to the station too. There are several baths here, and I visited the baths at night, and then...

We had stayed in traditional Ryokan and it is the first time we are trying a Ryokan Hotel. Hyoe Koyokaku certainly is one of the higher end hotel that offers great services and facilities.

I would have given four stars for the quality of the onsen baths, food and service but for the poor handling of some noisy guests in the room above mine past midnight that prevented me from sleeping (see the end of this review below).
