Traditional ryokan; good value for money

Helpful staff, everything is really traditional, spacious room
Staff were extremely helpful and receptionist spoke good english (in Japanese standard). Standard of food was ok, not great (but given the price, we couldn't ask for more). There were a few indoor and outdoor, private and public baths for visitors to choose. Though they were not big, but were enough to give us a comfortably bath. One thing to note is the water heater in our room which went out of order - we couldn't have hot shower in our own room. Overall it's an ok experience

A place worth going back to

Hot springs/Baths - Staff - Rooms and food
Our short stay (only 1 night) at Kinokuniya Ryokan Hotel was more than perfect. It was absolutely amazing, starting with getting there, the staff welcoming, the traditional room, the indoor and outdoor baths and finishing with the best traditional dinner ever. We'll definitely go back if we'll visit Japan again. To get to Ashinoyu, where Kinokuniya Ryokan Hotel is located, we stopped at Odawara. From here one has 2 options: 1-a bus from the Odawara train station (1200 yen/per, approx 1 hr) and 2-take the Odakyu Romancecar (take less time, but other trains are available) (620 yen/per ticket + 200 yen/per romance-car ticket from the train) and stop at Hakoneitabashi; from here take the cable-car train (for Gora direction) and stop at Kowakidani Station; from here hike 5 km (1 hr) by foot on the main street or wait for the bus. The second option is for one to experience this cable car train.

Luci e ombre di un'ex stella del settore

Cene, ampiezza della camera, cortesia del personale
Il prezzo per notte di questo hotel è davvero piuttosto alto, sebbene vada detto che nei dintorni ce ne sono anche di più cari, e comunque questo hotel offre un servizio di mezza pensione che include una cena Kaiseki e un servizio termale con vasche private (mezz'ora inclusa nel prezzo, su prenotazione). Lo staff è estremamente cortese, forse persino un po' manierato, ma probabilmente in linea con la tradizione. Le camere sono ampie e ben tenute, ma sono le parti comuni che lasciano veramente a desiderare: tutto ha un'aria trascurata, a volte quasi di abbandonato, qualcosa che un tempo era luminoso e ormai è invecchiato, con alcune aree davvero trascurate: una vecchia ciabatta abbandonata in un corridoio, attrezzatura ammucchiata dove un tempo c'erano aree ricreative, i bagni un po' scrostati e trascurati... Insomma per il servizio complessivo e il pezzo ci vorrebbe senz'altro una maggiore attenzione alle parti comuni, davvero troppo trascurate, ormai sciatte e brutte a vedersi. Per il resto una bellissima esperienza, che rifarei anche volentieri.
