Simply Awesome
Classic Japanese Hotel with tatami, onsen, yukata, unique swimming pool, and garden. All in one stop, I recommended this for every type of traveler who want to experience japan style hotel. The location is very easy to reach and even though not all japanese people fluent in english but they are very friendly and helpful to guide us. It can be reached by one bus without changing, directly in front of the hotel from the main station.

Nice hotel with lovely outlook
Nice hotel with lovely outlook. Across the road from the Yunessun which we really enjoyed. We arrived late in the afternoon and the Yunessun was not very busy. Our boys 6 & 7 years really enjoyed the outdoor slides. The hotel provided vouchers but still quite an expensive afternoon. The hotel is a bit out of town but there is a bus stop out the front of the hotel. If using the transport ensure you get the Hakone free pass purchased at Odawara train station. The interior of the hotel is clean but a bit dated. We didn't eat at hotel and there is a 7/11 next door. Comfortable beds but pillows quite hard. Bathrooms clean and nice toiletries. Staff friendly.

Location although far is great as there is a bus stop right outside the hotel. The hotel in itself is old and so are the rooms which I didnt like. The garden is beautiful and well kept. The restaurants are expensive and offers little choice except for Japanese food. There is a Family Mart nearby which is great.

Best one I found in Hakone
My family and I stayed at this hotel last time we came to visit Japan. We decided to stay at the same place this time too because we were impressed about everything here. My daughter just turns 5 this year and now she can enjoy onsen at the hotel. We had a wonderful memory here and next time we will again stay here for sure. We love this hotel very much.
