A cheaper option compared to the other hotels with a lakeview, but probably hasn't been updated since the 1980s...”
Bare basics, no-frills hotel, but not as cheap as you'd think, owing to its location in front of the lake. Very retro feel, not much ambience, but everything is clean and tidy at least. Had the snow crab buffet – the crab was fresh and good, but the other dishes available were quite mushy and mediocre. Not sure it was worth the ¥2500/pax. It's an average hotel, don't get your hopes up, but it is a more affordable option compared to the other lakefront hotels.

Clean, comfortable hotel along Kawaguchiko Lake”
Great 3-star hotel with a decent price and has a partial view of Mt Fuji from the front. Rooms were clean and comfortable although a bit dated. Facilities were decent, loved that they have an onsen within the building. Breakfast spread was also decent.

Nice hotel facing Mt Fuji”
Pros : Good location (view on Mt Fuji) and only 20 meters from red line bus stop number 13. Even if they do not speak english the staff try to be very helpful. The room are quiet big. Cons : no fresh fruit for breakfast, carpet floor in the room needs cleaning.

Staff are very nice, helpful and friendly. The sunset view is good. Yet, the facilities of the hotel and room seem to be quite old. Onsen is small and there was lady wearing clothes in onsen. The food types for dinner buffet are few and the price is too much that not worth.

Good Tourist class hotel in superb location”
This is the second time we stayed at this property. The experience was the same, good clean room. They accommodated 4 bus loads of tourists from various Asian countries. Breakfast was crowded until 8.15 pm and it is good that we can have quieter meal after that. The 6 floor hot bath have exclusive Japanese section to keep the crowd out. We only used the laundry in there.

Short Winter Stay”
We liked the location (facing the lake with Mt Fuji visible) and the price (cheaper than next door)
We stayed for 2 nights at the hotel. The staff was kind to arrange the children's room direct next door. The rooms are comfortable, nothing too fancy to shout about. The location is really nice - Bus stop13 is just outside, our main sight spot Kachi Kachi Ropeway is within walking distance or at bus stop 10, Mt Fuji is visible from the hotel, and there are eateries nearby.

Food, Location, view
We stayed half board and there was plenty of choice at the buffet breakfast and dinner, they had amazing crab and fresh salmon on both evenings. The view over the lake from our room was beautiful. The courtesy service from the station to the hotel was was an added bonus and like most travel in Tokyo, was on time. The only down side was the room which was quite small and basic with quite hard beds and a tiny bath tub, but we managed. I think the hotel caters more for the Asian market and during our short stay we didn't notice any other western people
